AudioFiles: Explosive Eighteen by Janet Evanovich

Explosive Eighteen (Stephanie Plum, #18)Title:Explosive Eighteen
 Author: Janet Evanovich
Series: Stephanie Plum #18
My rating: Back It Up

Summary:
Before Stephanie can even step foot off Flight 127 from Hawaii to Newark, she’s knee deep in trouble. Her dream vacation turned into a nightmare, she’s flying back to New Jersey solo, and someone who sounds like Sasquatch is snoring in row 22. Worse still, her seatmate never returned to the plane after the L.A. layover. Now he’s dead, in a garbage can, waiting for curbside pickup. His killer could be anyone. The FBI, the fake FBI, and guns-for-hire are all looking for a photograph the dead man was supposed to be carrying.

Only one other person has seen the missing photograph—Stephanie Plum. Now she’s the target, and she doesn’t intend to end up in a garbage can. With the help of an FBI sketch artist Stephanie re-creates the person in the photo. Unfortunately the first sketch turns out to look like Tom Cruise, and the second sketch like Ashton Kutcher. Until Stephanie can improve her descriptive skills, she’ll need to watch her back.

Over at the Bail Bonds Agency it’s business as usual—until the bonds bus serving as Vinnie’s temporary HQ goes up in smoke, Stephanie’s wheelman, Lula, falls in love with their “largest” FTA yet, lifetime arch nemesis Joyce Barnhardt moves into Stephanie’s apartment, and everyone wants to know what happened in Hawaii?!
 
Morelli, Trenton’s hottest cop, isn’t talking about Hawaii. Ranger, the man of mystery, isn’t talking about Hawaii.  And all Stephanie is willing to say about her Hawaiian vacation is . . . It’s complicated.


My Thoughts:

I enjoyed this book just like I have enjoyed all the others. I find them entertaining and laugh out loud funny. These books show some of us that there can people that are more dysfunctional than ourselves. You cannot have a Stephanie Plum Novel without somebody trying to kill her right.

My wife and I listened to this one while going through the Upper Michigan and beyond. My wife and I agree that she needs to choose between the men that is "involved" with in her life.

I will say that this one has been better than the past couple of Stephanie Plum books. Now it is the waiting game for when the next book comes out and who knows when that will be happening.

  1. I think by 18 books a character should have the guy situation from the early books figured out...
