This week I'm sharing...


Here's the synopsis:
In Hard Eight, Stephanie Plum picks up a case a little nastier than anything the wisecracking bounty hunter's seen before. Evelyn Soder and her young daughter have gone on the run, leaving an angry ex-husband who's planning to collect on a child custody bond that will leave Evelyn's grandmother homeless. Stephanie's first clue that there's more to it than that comes in the form of Eddie Abruzzi, a shady local businessman who warns her to butt out of the case. Stephanie doesn't scare easily, but when Abruzzi's henchmen leave a bag of snakes on her doorknob and tarantulas in her car, she has no choice but to call Ranger, the hunky man of mystery whom she already owes too many favors. Steph knows that Ranger will soon be calling in his marker, but with her ex- fiancé Joe Morelli out of the picture, that should be OK--shouldn't it? In the meantime, she's got other fugitives to catch, aided by the usual band of misfits, plus a bumbling correspondence-school lawyer who's developed the hots for Stephanie's sister, Valerie. And Steph's in for a surprise from her mother, who proves she's not above wielding a dangerous weapon to save her daughter's life.

Here are my thoughts:
 As usual, I enjoyed this one.  I found Albert Kloughn absolutely endearing and I enjoyed actually meeting Stephanie's perfect sister Valerie.  As usual, Grandma Mazur was entertaining and Stephanie's mom played a bigger part in this book, which was also enjoyable.

I read the first few books in the Stephanie Plum series but I need to go back and finish them! I loved all of the ones I've read so far and #8 sounds good! I hope you have a good Memorial Day weekend!

I found your blog a while ago, and finally was able to motivate myself to finish a book review in time for book club Friday!

I've never read any Janet Evanovich books before, but they get such great reviews that I might have to pick one up!

Cheers!

A few weeks ago, I wrote a review about this series - I didnt like it. You recommended reading the first one.

Lo and behold, hubs brought home a movie "One for the Money". I was SHOCKED when the main character was Stephanie Plum. I had no idea they made a movie out of the book.

Loved the movie and will def. read more of the books.

I recommend the movie too....Katherine Heigl is a great actress!

Sarah said...

I have to start doing this as it may even encourage me to read more.

Yay!
