MISTAKE #1 Dickie Orr Stephanie was married to him for about fifteen minutes before she caught him cheating on her with her archnemesis, Joyce Barnhardt. Another fifteen minutes after that, Stephanie filed for divorce, hoping never to see either one of them again. MISTAKE #2 Doing favors for super bounty hunter Carlos Manoso (aka Ranger) Ranger needs Stephanie to meet with Dickie and find out if he's doing something shady. Turns out, he is. Turns out, Dickie's also back to doing Joyce Barnhardt. And it turns out Ranger's favors always come with a price. . . . MISTAKE #3 Going completely nutso while doing the favor for Ranger, and trying to apply bodily injury to Dickie in front of the entire office Now Dickie has disappeared, and Stephanie is the natural suspect in his disappearance. Is Dickie dead? Can he be found? And can Stephanie Plum stay one step ahead in this new, dangerous game? Joe Morelli, the hottest cop in Trenton, New Jersey, is also keeping Stephanie on her toes---and he may know more than he's saying about many things in Stephanie's life. It's a cat-and-mouse game for Stephanie Plum wherein the ultimate prize might be her life. With Janet Evanovich's flair for hilarious situations, breathtaking action, and unforgettable characters, Lean Mean Thirteen shows why no one can beat Evanovich for blockbuster entertainment.

    " I have now read books l-13 and I still like reading about Stephanie Plum. These books actually make you laugh out loud I'm not sure how Janet Evanovich thinks up all the antics she writes about. When I want to read a "no brainer" I pull out one of her books and enjoy, enjoy, enjoy. "

    " As with all the other books with the character Stephanie Plum, this was very funny and an enjoyable read. It is very light reading, and if you want something light, this is the book for you. "

  • Overall Performance: 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5

    " Typical Stephanie Plum and Janet Evanovich. They help beat the stress with the off-the-wall antics of a less-than-stellar bounty hunter. "

    - Barb, 2/10/2014
  • Overall Performance: 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5

    " This was a fairly typical Stephanie Plum book. That is, Stephanie had interesting mishaps in her line of work as a bounty hunter, her car was once again kaput, there was the continual back and forth between Ranger and Morelli. Same old, same old. At this stage in the game, the stories tend to get a bit repetitive and stale. So what brings me back? Basically because Stephanie is still very likeable, other characters like Lula and Grandma Mazur are still full of foul-mouthed fun, and the books are a nice, light, and funny read. "

    " I tried to finish this yesterday. I fell asleep with two chapters to go. I went to bed at 1:00 and I ended up finishing this book and 14. Stephanie's escapades are addicting. I am going to be SOOOOO sad when I read the last one I have Smokin' Seventeen. This series is a blast. I need the escape in my life right now. It's a perfect diversion. "

  • Overall Performance: 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5

    " Loving this series. This one was maybe funnier than some of the others. I am starting to see how Stephanie's regular life just seems to be full of all these obstacles, that she cannot just have a quiet normal life, she has to be going fast and getting into trouble. I also am seeing her sort of deciding which guy is for her as the stories come out.....not sure who she will end up with in the end, if there is an end, but I like where it is going. Gotta love Lula, Grandma Mazur, Connie and all the other regulars, they are what make these stories just fabulous. "

    " Lean Mean Thirteen was just that. A little meaner than some of the other Plum novels. And a little scarier. But Stephanie still manages to get into the same scrapes while escaping with her life. I have to say, I am never bored reading these books! And they never fail to make me laugh. "

    " This was one of the top five out of the 13 I have read so far. Starting 14 and so far it seems to be a good read once again. Telling if you haven't read of te series of Stephanie Plum you should give them a chance. They are funny and you just never know what she is going to get into next. "

    " Like all of Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum books, this is another laugh-out-loud mindless fun book. I look forward to reading the next one. My job involves doing a tremendous amount of technical reading, and the Plum books are just what I need for the 'off' hours. "
