Trenton, New Jersey, bounty hunter Stephanie Plum has inherited a “lucky” bottle from her Uncle Pip. Problem is, Uncle Pip didn’t specify if the bottle brought good luck or bad luck…

BAD LUCK:

Vinnie, of Vincent Plum Bail Bonds, has run up a gambling debt of $786,000 with mobster Bobby Sunflower and is being held until the cash can be produced. Nobody else will pay to get Vinnie back, leaving it up to Stephanie, office manager Connie, and file clerk Lula to raise the money if they want to save their jobs.

GOOD LUCK:

Being in the business of tracking down people, Stephanie, Lula, and Connie have an advantage in finding Vinnie. If they can rescue him, it will buy them some time to raise the cash.

BAD LUCK:

Finding a safe place to hide Vinnie turns out to be harder than raising $786,000. Vinnie’s messing up Mooner’s vibe, running up pay-per-view porn charges in Ranger’s apartment, and making Stephanie question genetics.

GOOD LUCK:

Between a bonds office yard sale that has the entire Burg turning out, Mooner’s Hobbit-Con charity event, and Uncle Pip’s lucky bottle, they just might raise enough money to save the business, and Vinnie, from ruin.

BAD LUCK:

Saving Vincent Plum Bail Bonds means Stephanie can keep being a bounty hunter. In Trenton, this involves hunting down a man wanted for polygamy, a turnpike toilet paper bandit, and a drug dealer with a pet alligator named Mr. Jingles.

GOOD LUCK:

The job of bounty hunter comes with perks in the guise of Trenton’s hottest cop, Joe Morelli, and the dark and dangerous security expert, Ranger. With any luck at all, Uncle Pip’s lucky bottle will have Stephanie getting lucky—the only question is…with whom?

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kay | 2/19/2014

    " I am always one book behind it seems - read this in one day and laughed out loud! I love all of her books - can hardly wait to read Smokin Seventeen "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rosey Bourne | 2/18/2014

    " Limitless of grama in this short story and thus a lower rating. She really brings the humour to it "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda Arnsdorf | 2/13/2014

    " No surprise, sleazy Vinnie manages to get in trouble. This story lines entertaining. The on again off again of the romance is a little tiresome. It is time to decide and maybe go with. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nita | 2/8/2014

    " reliably entertaining. nothing new here folks. move along. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maggie61 | 1/29/2014

    " I read most of this is one sitting which I think is how these books are best. There is not a lot of depth to them and not much changes in the series from book to book from people to events, there is a lot of repetition from earlier books in the series. However, it is a fun series to read, still have to laugh at Grandma, and Lulu and wanting Stephanie to just pick between Morelli or Ranger. I think all of us want a Ranger in our lives, the bad boy as opposed to the much safer Morelli. It is a nice light read, good for the beach, or on the deck on a summer day, when you can just read most or all of it in one sitting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Black Words-White Pages | 1/23/2014

    " another great read from Janet Evanovich "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Victoria Bartlett | 1/22/2014

    " It was okay for a Stephanie Plum book. Wish it had more Ranger/Morelli stuff. Fun with the crazy though "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Deb Julienne | 1/8/2014

    " This was a blast of a read...Lula continues to crack me up, with friends like her Stephanie is lucky to be alive...but she also makes the book...between her and Grandma...those two will be the death of her even more than trying to decide between Joe and Ranger. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kim Stuppy Couet | 1/6/2014

    " Refer to my review under "One For The Money" for the whole series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christel Grady | 1/2/2014

    " Once again, Janet Evanovich makes me laugh out loud constantly while reading another Stephanie Plum novel. I still can't decide who I love more: Grandma Mazur or Lula?! Great stuff. Easy read: Hell, I plowed through it in one day?! Can't wait for the next one due out in November. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeans77 | 12/29/2013

    " I still enjoy a good Stephanie Plum - any book that makes me laugh out loud can't be bad! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Breanna | 12/17/2013

    " While there were some laugh-out-loud funny parts but overall the book lacked substance. It seems that Janet Evanovich is reaching to come up with new material for this series. It was an easy read for the plane. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer Valero | 12/17/2013

    " As always i didn't want it to end. These are the only stories that make me laugh out loud. Can't wait until #17 comes out! It's going to be a long year. Maybe I'll just reread 1-16. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Adrianne | 11/19/2013

    " Loved it, classic Stephanie. Not sure why everyone hates on the later books in the series -- they aren't meant to be high class literature, they're meant to be funny, easy reads. I especially loved the Lula one-liners in this one. Can't wait for the next! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jesse Menoni | 11/14/2013

    " Not her best but still a fun read. This reader was really good too. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lynn | 10/7/2013

    " I ABSOLUTELY LOVE EVANOVICH's PLUM AND CREW! This one had me laughing until I cried and ran out of breath, as I do at least once with each Plum novel! No one else cares about Vinnie and that leads everyone into a wildly bizarre set of events and misadventures! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dee | 7/1/2013

    " I love Stephanie Plum and all the zany characters. I had read some reviews that have not been happy with the last few books, but they are just Stephanie Plum stories. I always look forward to reading the latest. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathryn Reeder | 6/28/2013

    " This one was really good. It was a fast read and I laughed through most of the ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Prudence | 6/26/2013

    " Another fun read, but I think I have had enough of Lula. Time for a new sidekick. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Luanne | 5/5/2013

    " Vinnie is in trouble and his office staff steps up to help him out. We learn a little more about Connie in this book and Lula is continuing her half filing/half bounty hunting career. Stephanie is still in the middle of Morelli/Ranger decisions. Overall a fun Stephanie Plum novel. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Andrea Moran Brown | 4/23/2013

    " I guess I need to space out my Stephanie Plum books a bit more. Two in a row kind of diminished the humor for me a bit-- but it was ok. Hobbits make a grand appearance in this book. At first this seemed annoying, but in the end it made me smile. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Penny Nugent | 1/20/2013

    " Light, fun read. The monkey is hilarious! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amanda (LoveofJoe11) | 12/15/2012

    " Yes, the Stephanie Plum books are predictable, but they're also a load of fun to listen to in the car. This installment didn't add anything new, and if you're not tired of the same story, different day, go ahead and pick it up! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Angie Cavenor | 4/29/2012

    " Good as always but I didn't snigger quite as much as usual :p "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Chelsea | 2/11/2012

    " Too. Much. Lula. Also, I would prefer less descriptions of the food the characters are eating and more plot and character development. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ilene | 12/1/2011

    " OK, Janet is kind of dialing it in - it took most of the book to get to the belly laugh, but laughter did come and was worth the wait (which is a mere three hours that it takes to read cover to cover). The hotness factor alone makes this series worth an afternoon of escapism. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Monica Skeens | 6/4/2011

    " once again another great one. Explosions, fires, bad guys trying to get to the bonds office and this time they may have succeeded. However Vinnie sure gets himself into a pickle this time. The morrelli Stephanie thing is an off again this time. Sigh.. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nyimah | 5/22/2011

    " its a bit frustrating with the Ranger teasing and the horrible choices Lula and Stephanie make. but im comitted so i guess i will suffer thru till the end of the series. i still have hope for Ranger "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ally | 5/21/2011

    " Book five is my fave. What a cliffhanger! Yet I can't help but keep reading in case one day our Steph finally picks Joe or Ranger and lives happily ever after! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Miranda | 5/14/2011

    " Damn... Almost got another Ranger/Steph performance... Loved the Hobbits :D "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kim | 5/13/2011

    " Yay, Janet! A real hoot as usual - loved the Hobbits! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Debbie | 5/10/2011

    " This book was light hearted, funny and as always a little on the sexy side. Stephanie Plum keeps you wondering exactly where her heart is devoted. Lots of laughs. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rebecca | 5/10/2011

    " Very disappointed with this book. Normally I'm upset when series end, but with the Stephanie Plum series, maybe it wouldn't be the worst thing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathy | 5/9/2011

    " I've read all the books in her number series and they always crack me up. Very fun read! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristi | 5/9/2011

    " LOVE this series. Easy read, amazingly funny, and suspenseful throughout the entire read! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jillian | 5/4/2011

    " Of all the Stephanie Plum books - this was the worst. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 5/3/2011

    " My favorite line from this book:
    "I can't squeeze to keep the breezers in." --Grandma Mazer about farting
    "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amy | 5/3/2011

    " Vinnie has been kidnapped. Stephanie, Lula, And Connie work to get him back. Mooner is back in this one, and this time he has Hobbits with him. A herd of cows stampede in the streets of Trenton, new Jersey and there is an alligator on the loose... just another typical case for Stephanie... "
