Where there’s smoke there’s fire, and no one knows this better than New Jersey bounty hunter Stephanie Plum.

Dead bodies are showing up in shallow graves on the empty construction lot of Vincent Plum Bail Bonds. No one is sure who the killer is, or why the victims have been offed, but what is clearis that Stephanie’s name is on the killer’s list.

Short on time to find evidence proving the killer’s identity, Stephanie faces further complications when her family and friends decide that it’s time for her to choose between her longtime off-again-on-again boyfriend, Trenton cop Joe Morelli, and the bad boy in her life, security expert Ranger. Stephanie’s mom is encouraging Stephanie to dump them both and choose a former high school football star who’s just returned to town. Stephanie’s sidekick, Lula, is encouraging Stephanie to have a red-hot boudoir “bake-off.” And Grandma Bella, Morelli’s old-world grandmother, is encouraging Stephanie to move to a new state when she puts “the eye” on Stephanie.

With a cold-blooded killer after her, a handful of hot men, and a capture list that includes a dancing bear and a senior citizen vampire, Stephanie’s life looks like it’s about to go up in smoke.

    " I've read all of Evanovish's books on Stephanie Plum, and I have to admit this one was quite entertaining. I'd been disappointed a little in the last two or three, but this one sang with humor. Enjoyed it immensely. Finally, Ranger rises to the top! LOL "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Debbiedoesdctoo | 1/25/2014

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Beth Mitchell | 1/20/2014

    " Evanovich needs to take a break. This was essentially about eating and sex, oh yeah, she did do a little work as a bail bondswoman, but not enough to create a plot. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melissa Boudreau | 1/19/2014

    " Another wonderfully funny story about Stephanie Plum, a bounty hunter. Stephanie is faced with many problems. She has FTAs to apprehend. They always present a unique obstacle. Good thing for her, she usually ends up lucky. Stephanie has a mother who is constantly setting her up with men, even though she already can't decide between the men in her life. Lula and Grandma Mazur always get me laughing out loud. Morelli's Grandma Bella is fantastic. This is a wonderful read after a long day to destress. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 1/15/2014

    " Not much new except a new man in the equation for Stephanie. Mooner and his Love Bus provides comic relief! :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 bjneary | 1/11/2014

    " I just love Stephanie Plum and this 17th book was so hysterical. Morelli's grandmother puts a vordo curse on Stephanie which makes her much more interested in sex so you can imagine how she conducts herself with Morelli and Ranger! There is a guy in town that her mother and grandmother want her to date and bodies are piling up outside the office where Stephanie works. Lula gets her hair attacked by a rooster involved in a cockfight that Lula breaks up. So entertaining if you like Janet Evanovich, now I am moving onto 18! "

    " This series is always good for a laugh and some light reading! More adventures with Stephanie Plum. I am getting a little tired of her back & forth between the 2 men in her life, she used to be devoted to one man (Morelli) and now she's a loose woman. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deborah | 6/23/2011

    " I needed something light and fun so picked up the book. I've enjoyed the Stephanie Plum series before. This one is better than her last one of this series. Had some truly funny moments. Figured out the "who done it" very early which was disappointing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Flower | 6/23/2011

    " So much more Ranger in this book, loved it. She still dragging it out over who she picks, but this book had me laughing hard. Next book comes out in November, I wonder if she will wrap up this series at 18 or go for 20. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Holly | 6/23/2011

    " There were a couple good laugh out loud parts. I think this is one of the better ones in the series - especially later in the series. It's nice the next one comes out in six months instead of a year! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jayne | 6/23/2011

    " There should be a contest for a drawing of the bus, and the winning mural should get painted on the roof of a NYC bus - as they do with other ads! "

    " The killer's identity was obvious fairly early on, but the motivation was a surprise. So there's that. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leslie | 6/23/2011

    " I enjoy reading this series. There is always a good belly laugh or two. This book didn't disappoint. You know what you get with the Stephanie Plum series and this delivered. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nyimah | 6/23/2011

    " i was really happy with this instalment. lots of laughs character growth "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Samantha | 6/23/2011

    " I love all of Evanovich's Plum series, but the last few weren't as great as the previous. This book is right back with the first books in comedy and suspense. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sara | 6/23/2011

    " Another typical Plum book. I'm starting to think she'll never make up her mind about Ranger or Morelli. I think only 2 cars are lost this time and Lula always makes reading the book worth it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Timisnyder | 6/23/2011

    " The books are getting better, but I think it needs to wrap up. I figured out the bad guy pretty early on and I read very quick. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Toni | 6/23/2011

    " The plot was predictable. The triangle is getting a little old- 17 books and you can't choose- perhaps Stephanie doesn't deserve either of them and after her actions and excuses in this one ,i would not want her if I were Joe. I still get some laughs so I had to give it a 3. "
