#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 him down. 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.

I love all her books!!! Thank you for writing these:-)55
These are one of my favorite series. I actually laugh out loud and get weird looks from strangers. It’s worth it though!55
I'm so glad that Stephanie is still unattached. If/when she settles down- the story will be ruined.55
I just read this book because of all the bad reviews. I wish I had read it sooner. There were great laughs, and all the characters I love were there. Read the book, u will enjoy it, just like all the others.55
It was amazing and funny too! Hoping for another plum novel with more Ranger!!55
If you like the "Number" series books, you'll love like book too!55
I love this series and all of the characters the author has created. I laugh out loud reading these books. I want more! Once I start reading, I can't stop. I read this book in one day.55
This series is basically the same book nineteen times. I am beyond disappointed with this. I mean its been nineteen books and there is still no decision between ranger and morelli. It's just getting ridiculous. I thought for sure something would happen in her love life. But it's still just sleeping with morelli and kissing ranger. Seriously janet write a book where something actually happens in Stephanie's life instead of writing the same story. And the endings are always the same. This series started out good but just got to be repetitive and now I've lost all respect for this author for trying to keep this series going instead of giving readers a conclusion.15
Great book just as all the others. Waiting on the next just to see what Stephanie can get her self out of.55
