I've been waiting a whole year to read this book. So it was no wonder that on Friday morning I found myself grabbing it off the bookshelf and getting stuck into it. There are a whole bunch of other books that have been waiting longer, but Stephanie Plum won out.

And it didn't disappoint.

I love this series! It's hilarious, well-written, full of memorable characters, bizarre situations, interesting plot and everything that makes a book TERRIFIC! Honestly, Janet Evanovich is a great writer and reading a Plum book is like catching up with old friends once a year.

Anyway, this book is about a psycho (one of the many she's met along the way) who seems to have returned from the grave to stalk Stephanie. At the same time, she's literally tired of rolling in garbage (with garbage) and decides to quit bounty hunting. This leads her to an array of other job opportunities that wind up with the same Stephanie-treatment as the bounty hunting. It's one disaster after another... and that's what makes this series so wonderful. Stephanie Plum is a terrific character, surrounded by equally terrific characters one can't help but get attached to.

This was another outstanding addition to the series. I can't wait to read the next one -- which will probably be this time next year -- when 12 SHARP comes out on paperback. :/
