Book Club - Seven Up

Book Club - Seven Up by Janet Evanovich



Summary:

All New Jersey bounty hunter Stephanie Plum has to do is bring in semi-retired bail jumper Eddie DeChooch. For an old man he's still got a knack for slipping out of sight--and raising hell. How else can Stephanie explain the bullet-riddled corpse in Eddie's garden? Who else would have a clue as to why two of Stephanie's friends suddenly vanished? For answers Stephanie has the devil to pay: her mentor, Ranger. The deal? He'll give Stephanie all the help she needs--if she gives him everything he wants . .

As if things weren't complicated enough, Stephanie's just discovered her Grandma Mazur's own unmentionable alliance with Eddie. Add a series of unnerving break-ins, not to mention the bombshell revelation leveled by Stephanie's estranged sister, and Stephanie's ready for some good news. Unfortunately, a marriage proposal from Joe Morelli, the love of her life, isn't quite cutting it. And now--murder, a randy paramour, a wily mobster, death threats, extortion, and a triple kidnapping aside--Stephanie's really got the urge to run for her life . .

Review:

I have been fighting a horrible sinus infection, so I thought I would try a light read....another Stephanie Plum book. If you recall, my first adventure with this series was not well received. But then, we rented the new Katherine Heigl movie and lo and behold, it was One for the Money. I had no idea this movie was based on these books and I loved the movie. It all kinda clicked for me (I could imagine the characters) and I adore these easy reads now. I couldn't find books 2 through 6 at the library, so I got 7 and 8. I still think they are sometimes all over the place, but they are entertaining and easy to follow.

I'm glad you like them better this time! It's a lot easier to follow if you start from the beginning. :)

I've read the first (finally!) and I really loved the movie (even though I'm not a fan of Katherine Heigl) - they are definitely such good reads!
