A Stephanie Plum Novel
*Book Jacket Review*
She’s accidentally destroyed a dozen cars. She’s a target for every psycho and miscreant this side of the Jersey Turnpike. Her mother’s convinced she’ll end up dead…or worse, without a man. She’s Stephanie Plum, and she kicks butt for a living (well, she thinks it sounds good to put it that way…)
It begins as an innocent trip to the deli-mart, on a quest for nachos. But Stephanie Plum and her partner Lulu, are clearly in the wrong place at the wrong time. A robbery leads to an explosion, which leads to the destruction of yet another car. It would just be another day in the life of Stephanie Plum, except that she becomes the target of a gang-and of an even scarier, more dangerous force that comes to Trenton. With super-bounty hunter Ranger acting more mysteriously than ever (and the tension with vice cop Joe Morelli getting hotter), She finds herself with a decision to make. How to protect herself and where to hide while on the hunt for a killer known as junkman. There’s only one safe place and it has Ranger’s name all over it.-if she can find it. And Junkman doesn’t find her first. With Lulu riding shotgun and Grandma Mazur on the loose, Stephanie Plum is racing against the clock in her most suspenseful novel yet. Ten Big Ones is page-turning entertainment, and Janet Evanovich is the best there is.
This is the second Stephanie Plum novel I’ve read by Janet Evanovich.
I have to say-She’s drawn me in with her witty, kick-ass characters. Stephanie’s the chick you wanted to be when you grew up. Outspoken yet caring, and the need to be unlike most. Most women would be happy to stay at home and let their husbands make the money, but not Stephanie. When she is at home she walks in circles trying to figure out a way to get around the overprotective Joe Morelli. She’s adventurous and is willing to put her life on the line to get the criminals off the streets. Stephanie’s partner Lulu, the big black lady who loves to eat and where her spandex a little too tight brings insight and humor to the story. Ranger and his bad-boy attitude, and unlimited cars and bodyguards for Stephanie. Joe Morelli and his charming good looks and his almost humorous ways he tries to protect Stephanie.
Janet Evanovich is an excellent novelist. She knows how to pull it all together. Crime-fighting, humor, romance, and all….She is now one of my favorite authors and her other books are on my “to-read” list…
