Explosive Eighteen

Explosive Eighteen Summary

BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg's The Heist.

Bounty hunter Stephanie Plum’s life is set to blow sky high when international murder hits dangerously close to home, in this dynamite novel by Janet Evanovich.
Before Stephanie can even step foot off Flight 127 Hawaii to Newark, she’s knee deep in trouble. Her dream vacation turned into a nightmare, and she’s flying back to New Jersey solo. Worse still, her seatmate never returned to the plane after the L.A. layover. Now he’s dead, in a garbage can, waiting for curbside pickup. His killer could be anyone. And a ragtag collection of thugs and psychos, not to mention the FBI, are all looking for a photograph the dead man was supposed to be carrying.
Only one other person has seen the missing photo—Stephanie Plum. Now she’s the target, and she doesn’t intend to end up in a garbage can. With the help of an FBI sketch artist Stephanie re-creates the person in the photo. Unfortunately the first sketch turns out to look like Tom Cruise, and the second sketch like Ashton Kutcher. Until Stephanie can improve her descriptive skills, she’ll need to watch her back.
Over at the bail bonds agency things are going from bad to worse. The bonds bus serving as Vinnie’s temporary HQ goes up in smoke. Stephanie’s wheelman, Lula, falls in love with their largest skip yet. Lifetime arch nemesis Joyce Barnhardt moves into Stephanie’s apartment. And everyone wants to know what happened in Hawaii?
Morelli, Trenton’s hottest cop, isn’t talking about Hawaii. Ranger, the man of mystery, isn’t talking about Hawaii.  And all Stephanie is willing to say about her Hawaiian vacation is . . . It’s complicated.

Love the Stephanie Plum novels. They make you laugh and always have lots of action. Never disappointing.55


Scattered sentences1 star

I have nothing positive to say about this bunch of scattered sentences that make no sense. I wouldn’t refer to this as a coherent story or a book15

Count down!5 star

I started reading these books a few weeks ago. I had to start at one. (OCD). I don't understand the bad reviews. I'm in it for a fun read and it would all be ruined if Stephanie settled for just one man. Getting ready to start 18 and know I'll love it as much as the others. 17 was great and as always- hysterical!!!!55

First time I've been disappointed with a Plum novel1 star

This book fell flat for me. I have read the series multiple times, and always enjoy the books no matter how many times overhead them. I'm not sure what happened here, but I hop it doesn't happen again...15
