|What's a girl to do? And in between car chases and gun battles, Stephanie has to deal with sometime boyfriend, sexy cop Morelli edging back and forth on the way to matrimony.|
Stephanie Plum, for those who've missed her previous adventures is an ex-lingerie buyer who has found gainful employment as a bounty hunter. Well, her family and occasional boyfriend think she'd be better off in a button factory, but it's such a cool job and you don't have to wear pantyhose. Pity Stephanie's afraid of her own gun, though.
Stephanie's adventures are set in a idiosyncratic world called the 'burgs', the suburbia to which mafia types used to retire. It's a land of big hair, hard makeup, and overachiever housewives, where you ain't nobody if you don't have a nice gun in your purse. Sure there's a law against carrying concealed, but it's not as if anyone considered it a really IMPORTANT law.
All the regulars return in this adventure, including the very stoned Douggie and Mooner. Evanovich manages to mix humour with crime in an addictive mix that makes chocolate look like an amateur.
