Notorious Nineteen by Janet Evanovich-Review

I like this series.  Yes I know.. each book reads the same.  But that is what I like.. I love the style of these books.  Here is the goodreads description:

#1 bestselling author Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum novels are: “irresistible” (Houston Chronicle), “stunning” (Booklist), “outrageous” (Publishers Weekly), “brilliantly evocative” (The Denver Post), and “making trouble and winning hearts” (USA Today). 
 New Jersey bounty hunter Stephanie Plum is certain of three truths: People don’t just vanish into thin air. Never anger old people. And don’t do what Tiki tells you to do. 
After a slow summer of chasing low-level skips for her cousin Vinnie’s bail bonds agency, Stephanie Plum finally lands an assignment that could put her checkbook back in the black. Geoffrey Cubbin, facing trial for embezzling millions from Trenton’s premier assisted-living facility, has mysteriously vanished from the hospital after an emergency appendectomy. Now it’s on Stephanie to track down the con man. Unfortunately, Cubbin has disappeared without a trace, a witness, or his money-hungry wife. Rumors are stirring that he must have had help with the daring escape . . . or that maybe he never made it out of his room alive. Since the hospital staff’s lips seem to be tighter than the security, and it’s hard for Stephanie to blend in to assisted living, Stephanie’s Grandma Mazur goes in undercover. But when a second felon goes missing from the same hospital, Stephanie is forced into working side by side with Trenton’s hottest cop, Joe Morelli, in order to crack the case. 
The real problem is, no Cubbin also means no way to pay the rent. Desperate for money—or maybe just desperate—Stephanie accepts a secondary job guarding her secretive and mouthwatering mentor Ranger from a deadly Special Forces adversary. While Stephanie is notorious for finding trouble, she may have found a little more than she bargained for this time around. Then again—a little food poisoning, some threatening notes, and a bridesmaid’s dress with an excess of taffeta never killed anyone . . . or did they? If Stephanie Plum wants to bring in a paycheck, she’ll have to remember: No guts, no glory. . . .

This book is another fun Plum novel. I laughed out loud just like I always do, though not as much as I do in the other books. For those that don't know these are short easy reads. Expect stories that are crazy and totally out there but fun too. This time around there is a Tiki and not a monkey and I loved the Tiki! I always look forward to when there is a new book in this series... and it is clear that the people who use the library do too. I am always waiting forever for this book when it comes out!

Sometimes... like everyone else... I do want a change in the books. Same love story, same job, same cars blowing up, and will Rex ever die? I mean.. how long do hamsters live anyways? I keep waiting for that little guy to die. I just want Stephanie to bring in her simple FTAs. I mean..... sometimes I think she looks more dumb then she is because she can't arrest someone who is a simple arrest! Sometimes I want this series to end and sometimes I don't!!! It's like an addiction!

The crystal ball says: 

Fog is coming.....  in the middle of the road on this book!
