Buckle your seat belts. Number-one New York Times bestselling author Janet Evanovich is moving into the fast lane with Metro Girl, a thrilling, high-octane misadventure with high stakes, hot nights, cold-blooded murder, sunken treasure, a woman with a chassis built for speed, and one very good, very sexy NASCAR driver who's along for the ride.

"Wild" Bill Barnaby's dropped off the face of the earth and big sister Alex heads for Miami, Bill's last known sighting, on a harrowing hunt to save her brother ... and maybe the world. Alex blasts through the bars of South Beach and points her search south to Key West and Cuba, laying waste to Miami hit men, dodging Palmetto bugs big enough to eat her alive, and putting the pedal to the metal with NASCAR driver Sam Hooker. Engaged in a deadly race, Wild Bill's "borrowed" Hooker's sixty-five-foot Hatteras and sailed off into the sunset ... just when Hooker has plans for the boat. Hooker figures he'll attach himself to Alex and maybe run into scumbag Bill. The race to the finish is hot and hard.

    " I guess I was looking for the same type of book as her numbered series. This one just didn't do it for me. Too loyal to her other series I guess. I didn't finish this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Fran | 11/26/2013

    " Typical Janet Evanovich - very girly, slightly trashy, and an easy read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sherry Ruppelt | 9/1/2013

    " These are such light fluff reads, but I can't help myself. I'm always looking for Evanovich's next novel. This author makes me laugh and some of her characters keep me in stitches. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tonya | 7/15/2013

    " This was a funny, witty, and engaging book. I look forward to reading more of her books. The characters were fun, the dialog was spicy. Definitely worth a read if you are a fan of Lisa Lutz (or of Janet Evanovich! LOL!) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer | 5/20/2013

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jeri | 2/7/2013

    " Alex (female) goes in search of brother who has disappeared. Meets a NASCAR driver who helps in the search. Story misses something - unless you want a mindless read, don't bother. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Regina | 9/9/2012

    " Surprisingly funny... up there with many of the Stephanie Plum books though I think I would have preferred "Nascar Guy" not to have so many dumb redneck moments. "

    " Wish I had friends who had friends like these. Barney got a phone call from her brother in the middle of the night ending with a womans scream! She jumps on a plane to "save him"! Sorry, but I had to laugh at some of the trouble she got into in this adventure! Another super fun read! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jenn | 3/28/2011

    " This is a normal far fetched "fluff" book for me that is a quick and easy read. I did not find this as funny as they Stephanie Plum series but did have a couple moments of laugh outs. Although I keep reading more for Slick and Gimpy's sake as opposed to the whole plot of the story "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 John | 3/26/2011

    " This isn't a Stephanie Plum book which for me was a nice change. This is another Evanovich book that can be read in a long afternoon. As with all of her books there are passages that are laugh out loud funny. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rosie | 3/26/2011

    Enjoy! "

    " Metro Girl introduces a new set of characters but with the same fun, snarky, irreverent style we've come to love in Stephanie Plum novels. Definitely a "must read" for Janet Evanovich fans. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lauren | 3/17/2011

    " Ms. Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series is one of my all time favorite series so my expectations were very high for this new novel. Unfortunately they were not met. The book was just not as engaging nor as witty as I expected it to be. "
