Buckle your seat belts. New York Times best-selling 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. Truth is, Alex has been bailing her brother out of trouble since they were kids. Not that Bill's a bad sort. More that he acts first and thinks later. Unfortunately, this time around, Wild Bill will be Dead Bill if Alex doesn't find him in time.

Alex blasts through the bars of South Beach and points her search 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 has 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 Bill. Maybe Hooker can salvage what's left of his vacation. And maybe Hooker'll get lucky in love with Bill's sweetie-pie sister. After all, Hooker is NASCAR Guy. And NASCAR Guy is good at revving a woman's engine.

The race to the finish is hot and hard, taking Alex and Hooker into international waters, exposing a plot to grab Cuban gold and a sinister relic of the Cuban missile crises. Creative cussing and sexual innuendo included.

    " This was my first Janet Evanovich book and I'd give it 3.5 stars. She is an entertaining writer and I look forward to reading more of her books "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alicia | 2/11/2014

    " I love Janet Evanovich and will read anything she writes. However, this is not on the same par as the Stephanie Plum books. But it's fun and an easy read and definitely along the same lines as the Plum books. I can see where she's building up to another series and I would continue to stick with them. I needed some mindless entertainment and this filled the bill perfectly. I'm not a NASCAR fan, so that was kind of a turn-off, but I loved the Miami angle and the characters are fun. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Frances | 1/31/2014

    " funny..,.I read Evanovich as 'sorbets' between the meatier books "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nina | 1/30/2014

    " Excellent beach read! Funny, good tale, liked it much better than the Stephanie Plum mystery I read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jayne | 1/25/2014

    " My favourite out of all of Miss Evanovich's books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristen Chavis | 1/23/2014

    " Metro girl is an amazing and funny story of Alex Barnaby. After receiving a troublesome phone call from her brother, she flies to Miami to help him. When she gets to his place, she finds the door open and his apartment ransacked. Janet Evanovich creates tension between Alex and the cocky Race car driver that she works for. Alex is a well-crafted character who is pretty and quirky, with trust issues. When Alex teams up with the race car driver to find her brother, the sexual tension can be cut with a knife. "

    " not as good as the other series. she's trying to do much as with all good series, they are starting to fade out. I am so bummed! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julia | 1/10/2014

    " I am a huge fan of Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series, and I thought this was even funnier. Pure fluff, but som eof the best fluff out there! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Emily | 1/3/2014

    " It was a suspenseful, unrealistic, "chick" novel. I was surprised that it kept my attention for the duration. There was a lot of plot build-up leaving the reader wondering what will happen next. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Martha | 12/24/2013

    " I liked the heroine better than I like Stephanie Plum. This book was an audiobook and I've got to say, I enjoyed the narrator of the Stephanie Plum series a lot more. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Annette Meier | 12/23/2013

    " Similar to the Plum Series, but enough different to still enjoy it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pat | 12/9/2013

    " Alexandra (Barney) Barnaby roars onto the Miami Beach scene in search for her missing brother, "Wild" Bill. Search gets her involved with Nascar drive, Sam Hooker, who's good at revving her motor. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tammy | 12/4/2013

    " A quick fun read - as usual, J.E. didn't disappoint! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 iluvteaching | 10/23/2013

    " I found a lot of things in it that reminded of Stephanie Plum. I wanted this to be different enough that I didn't feel Stephanie. That didn't happen for me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jill | 10/13/2013

    " While her characters are somewhat predictable if you've read her Stephanie Plum series, they never fail to entertain. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Judy | 8/2/2013

    " Another great book by Janet Evanovich! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sammcnair | 3/26/2013

    " very similar to Stephanie Plum, only she's not as uncoordinated... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wendy | 3/7/2013

    " I thaught this was a comical story. I enjoyed the witty conversations between the main characters, the secondary characters are hilarious and make the story that much more interesting. I would recommend this book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bobbipatch | 2/11/2013

    " I like Janet Evanovitch but if you've read the Stephanie Plum books, you've read this (and Motor Mouth) as well. Same plot and crazy characters but in a different location. Just remember that you aren't in New Jersey anymore. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ashley | 9/11/2012

    " Fun story, good quick read. Wasn't as engaged by the characters as I am by the ones in the Stephanie Plum stories, but a good distraction. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shannon | 4/14/2012

    " Her books are fun, "campy" books. Very easy to read (usually in about 4 hours). They are like watching a sitcom. I enjoy them when I don't really want to think too hard. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mickey (I'm A Book Shark) | 3/3/2012

    " I didn't really like this one. Seems like she's a completely different author with these books. It had its moments where I laughed out loud, but still.. not as good as Plum. Still going to read the next one though. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sharal Hunter | 1/5/2012

    " Some humorous moments but not one of Evanovich's best. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christi | 11/15/2011

    " This is a great read! It's almost romance but it doesn't quite go all the way and there is definitely a little mystery and suspense. Definitely worth the $$ and worth the sequel! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maleah | 8/22/2011

    " Not quite the same as Stephanie Plum, but still entertaining. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 brooke koller-faloon | 7/12/2011

    " it was a really easy read, not the deepest book i've ever read but a casual beach read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Genna Rose | 7/1/2011

    " Meh. It felt a little called-in. I didn't make me laugh the way Evanovich's One for the Money series does. I enjoyed the South Florida setting. The action stayed constant, which was good, but I am not sure how much I cared about the characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michaela | 6/7/2011

    " I like Janet Evanovich's style of writing, different characters, funny story! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angela | 5/10/2011

    " A quick entertaining read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nneutz | 5/8/2011

    " Up to this point I had only read the Stephanie Plum serious. The story line is very similar with a different character. Once again very easy reads. If you the love the Plum series you will like this one too. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nana | 4/20/2011

    " 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 Jennifer | 4/17/2011

    " Heroine goes to Miami to rescue brother - meets macho NASCAR guy - saves the day. fun to read "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kellie | 4/13/2011

    " Perfect weekend getaway book. Not as much language in this as the Stephanie Plum novels, which was a breath of fresh air. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Emily | 3/29/2011

    " couldn't stand this book but finished it because it was an audiobook. i think it was the voice i didn't like. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Toni | 3/29/2011

    " Alex and Hooker into international waters, exposing a plot to grab Cuban gold and a sinister relic of the Cuban missile crises. "

  • 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

    " I thought this was a great book! It was fun to read & didn't want to put it down so I read it in a night! I read it a few years back and still like to re-read it every once in a while.
    Enjoy! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Wendy T | 3/22/2011

    " I enjoy the quirky book and looking forward the next one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tammy | 3/19/2011

    " 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. "
