Before Stephanie can even step foot off Flight 127 Hawaii to Newark, she’s knee deep in trouble. Her dream vacation turned into a nightmare, and she’s flying back to New Jersey solo. Worse still, her seatmate never returned to the plane after the LA layover. Now he’s dead, in a garbage can, waiting for curbside pickup. His killer could be anyone. And a ragtag collection of thugs and psychos, not to mention the FBI, are all looking for a photograph the dead man was supposed to be carrying.

Only one other person has seen the missing photo: 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 things are going from bad to worse. The bonds bus serving as Vinnie’s temporary HQ goes up in smoke. Stephanie’s wheelman, Lula, falls in love with their largest skip 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.

    " I liked this book as I usually do the Stephanie Plum books. Lila made me laugh out loud several times. I just wish Stephanie would choose between Morelli & Ranger....preferably Ranger! "

    " Just finished this book last night. What can I say just like the others a good read. Stephanie plum is so funny n her side kick Lula. As I read I catch myself seeing this series on a T.V. Show. I can see myself just laughing so hard if this was show. There is 19 books in this series so far so that is a good hand full of seasons there. Hoping the author keeps the series going. Already started the last book in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Keye | 1/28/2014

    " Reading all of the Stephanie Plum books has been so very entertaining. How could you not love these books? You have the ever so quirky and disaster magnet Stephanie and her sidekick, former 'ho, Lula, along with a cast of characters that she either works with or is related to. Then you have Stephanie's love interests, Ranger and Morelli. Who could blame her for not being able to make up her mind? LOL "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kassie | 1/20/2014

    " I always love reading these books, they are an easy and entertaining read, but I hate the way this one ended, it just ended. Not one of my favorites from the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wendi Kemp | 1/20/2014

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jim | 1/17/2014

    " I'd forgotten just how much fun it was to read about Stephanie Plum as a break from more serious stuff. Delightful! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 That Lady | 1/5/2014

    " Light hearted, funny, and entertaining, this series always puts a smile on my face. It's perfect to sit down to at the end of a long busy day. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Micki Meadors | 12/29/2013

    " Enjoyable distraction from my "serious" reading. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sapna | 12/28/2013

    " My first and probably last Janet Evanovich novel. The Stephanie Plum series centers on Plum-a bounty hunter, single, with an intrusive family, and a comedic cast of co-workers. While it was a quick, brainless read, which at times was funny, I don't think I will be picking up another any time soon! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 A. R. Tan | 12/11/2013

    " I'm tired of reading this series. Even the characters seemed tired. They were flat and yes there were still funny moments, but the overall impression I got was flat. I am not buying her books anymore. If they should up at the library, I'll read them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Armethia H | 12/11/2013

    " She still didn't make a decision which kinda sucks but I liked the book anyways. And she didn't blow up any of her cars. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Marybeth | 12/4/2013

    " I think JEvanovich has been keeping this series on life support until the movie rights sold way-back-when could finally turn into something. It is definitely time to pull the plug. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karen Mills | 12/1/2013

    " Like all Stephanie Plum - light reading - fun and brainless "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katie | 11/3/2013

    " funny but this series is dwindling... not as good as the earlier ones "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maggie | 8/29/2013

    " I have read all of the Stephanie Plum novels, this being the latest. They are funny, some better than others, but all worth the read for a laugh or three. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tonya | 8/3/2013

    " Another laugh out loud adventure with my favorite character Stephanie Plum. Just what the doctor ordered. :) Now ready for #19. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Debra Chapoton | 7/20/2013

    " Fast. Sharp. Funny. Just what you want if you're a fan and have read the previous 17 novels in this series. Where does she keep getting these hilarious ideas? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jenn | 6/15/2013

    " Hilarious, Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series is absolutely wonderful and great to read. This one was quite intriguing and as usual funny. I absolutely love these series. No matter what, you still can't seem to decide if she should choose Morelli or Ranger. Love them both!!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sophie | 6/1/2013

    " ANother Miss Plum Book Quick read "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Hannes Holmquist | 3/9/2013

    " What I imagine Twilight would be like reading, drama about some boring broad two hot successfull men fight over, maybe it improves further along...Cus I dropped it 1/5 in, which I only endured cus I was on a bus with nothing else to do "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robin perez | 12/19/2012

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sharon | 2/23/2012
