“I bet you get a tingle when you sit in it,” Lula said. “I can’t wait. I want to try behind the wheel.” I bet you feel like a real badass behind the wheel.”
I’m tagging any one who wants to do this. It’s fun. This book is entertaining. A Stephanie Plum book never fails to make me laugh out loud.
As usual, leave a comment to get your name in the hat. Drawing will be random, either on random.org or by my babies. It all depends on what or who’s handy when I get to this book. Come one and play. Don’t forget to check the other books up under “♥ available books” category.
I found this extra copy of Stephanie Plum series. I would love to post them in order, but since I cannot, I’m posting them as I find them in my shelves.
I can’t say enough good things about this series. You can read this out of orde. Each book is a stand-alone story. But, stay tune, I’m pretty sure I have more Stephanie Plum series in one of my yet-to-be-unpacked boxes.
What Amazon said:
“Uncle Fred was someone I saw at weddings and funerals and once in a while at Giovichinni’s Meat Market, ordering a quarter pound of olive loaf. Eddie Such, the butcher, would have the olive loaf on the scale and Uncle Fred would say, ‘You’ve got the olive loaf on a piece of waxed paper. How much does that piece of waxed paper weigh? You’re not gonna charge me for that waxed paper, are you? I want some money off for the waxed paper.’”
The speaker is Stephanie Plum, the glamorous if slightly ditzy bounty hunter from Trenton, New Jersey, and one of the most original creations in recent mystery fiction.

If you’ve never heard of Stephanie Plum, here’s your chance.
From Publisher’s Weekly:
The mixture of slapstick and gunplay that has put Evanovich’s series about a sassy, less than competent New Jersey bounty hunter at the top of bestseller lists once again works its magic in Stephanie Plum’s latest caper (after 2005′s Eleven on Top). Stephanie, who freely admits her failings as a hunter of fugitives, faces a growing work backlog that threatens the continued existence of her job. Her clumsy efforts to clear some cases, along with the help of her outrageous colleague, Lula, result only in their adding another sad sack to the office payroll—a forlorn shoe salesman who’s talked off a ledge by Stephanie’s offer of a position as file clerk. Stephanie’s ambivalence toward the two men in her life becomes harder to maintain when one of them, the mysterious Ranger, is accused of kidnapping his own daughter. Countless over-the-top scenes, including one at a funeral parlor, will delight longtime fans.
