I haven't given up on this series yet. I am still enjoying it...even though yes it is following the exact some plot format as the rest of the books. Here is the goodreads description:
Stephanie Plum is again on one of her little bounty hunter heists. She still is mixed up with two loves Ranger and Morelli. Now while normally I can't stand that she messes around with these two guys in this book she does OK. Though honestly I don't know why she just doesn't chose Ranger. He has money, a great job, and seem like he might commit (in this book people finally start calling him Batman). On the other hand we have Morelli who doesn't want to commit. This plot line I think needs to be moved along. When you are twenty books in .. normally I want to see the main character get forward in life. Stephanie is now in her 30s, wants kids, wants a good job, wants a grown up house, wants a working car. I just want her to get something good in her life!
I just can't seem to quit this series. Yes it's not the best literature ever... but it makes me smile and laugh. The books are very short which is all I need really. I always end up waiting forever to get it from the library. I start at like #300! So people love these books. At least there is no monkey in the book this time... there is a giraffe instead. For some reason.. I actually enjoyed the giraffe. I usually get annoyed when there is some odd animal added into the series, but I thought the giraffe was funny. Just saying.
One thing that disappoints me in the books is that Stephanie is never the one to actually catch the big fugitives. She always has to get help. I don't know why but that annoys me. Really she should not be a bounty hunter. I read that Evanovich is contracted for 22 books... so will the next two books be the last ones? Probably not. But here's kind of hoping. I read through all the reviews that others have done and it seems a lot of people are feeling the same way.
The crystal ball says:
Fog is coming..... in the middle of the road on this book!
