Pestered by her close New Jersey family, Stephanie Plum offers to catch high-school crush Joe Morelli, cop turned bail jumper, for her cousin Vinnie's company. She questions "working girls" to find the missing girlfriend of vicious prizefighter Benito Ramirez while Joe secretly watches her back. Ranger mentors her and supplies vehicles when hers explode.
One of my friends introduced me to this series years ago – back when there was only one or two of them – but I’ve never written a review for any of them. I haven’t read any of them in years, either, so I thought it’d be fun to reread them & get caught up in the series.
I don’t like the book as much as I did 15? years ago. I find Stephanie rather lacking, and I don’t find the jokes as funny as I did. I’m pretty disappointed overall, though obviously the books are hugely famous and there’s a great fan base. I doubt I’ll continue to reread the series/get caught up on the rest of the books.
