You know your book is not going to win the Booker prize, if it has multiple fart jokes in it The rest of the jokes were simply feeble and dull twists in a relatively tepid affair.Altogether I ve read

for women Incidentally, whenever I ll read this series again, I ll always picture Bill Hicks circa 1992 as Ranger This was boring And, not only that but for some reason Janet Evanovich decided that the funny and zany antics of Stephanie Plum needed a new crucial ingredient fart jokes no, not so muchSeriously Does she think her reading audience is a group of ten year old boys Because, last I heard, grown ass women aren t real fans of the fart jokes I know I m not I just feel like she is either really out of touch with her audience, or she s just plain old out of ideas Probably both just like Hollywood This was boring And, not only that but for some reason Janet Evanovich decided that the funny and zany antics of Stephanie Plum needed a new crucial ingredient fart jokes no, not so

either really out of touch with her audience, or she s just plain old out of ideas Probably both just like Hollywood..The storyline in this one was boring and the side characters were too stupid to even be funny The love triangle was as lame as ever She breaks up with Joe occasionally just to give the readers some sort of hope about Ranger, but nothing ever comes of it She acts all scared of Ranger s sexuality but we know she slept with him before Been there, done that, got the t shirt.Honestly, if there really was a guy like Ranger, he would have moved on long ago He s supposed to be intelligent, sexy, and successful, but he s pining away for some trashy girl who is the equivalent of Ace Ventura, Pet Detective in her skills this is Stephanie s best interrogation techniqueRanger, you need to set your sights higher Like on a middle aged married woman with three kids.Will I continue reading this series Probably I am hoping this is a one off In this 15th novel in the Stephanie Plum series, the bounty hunter and her cohorts serve up the usual zany fun The book can be read as a standalone Stephanie Plum s friend and co worker Lula arrives at work in a frazzle, having just seen two thugs chop off a man s head.At Lula s urging, Stephanie calls her sometimes boyfriend, Detective Joe Morelli, to investigate When the head turns up, the victim is identified as Stanley Chipotle, a well known celebrity chef Chipotle was in town to In this 15th novel in the Stephanie Plum series, the bounty hunter and her cohorts serve up the usual zany fun The book can be read as a

Detective Joe Morelli, to investigate When the head turns up, the victim is identified as Stanley Chipotle, a well known celebrity chef Chipotle was in town to promote a barbecue contest sponsored by the makers of Fire in the Hole Red Hot Barbecue Sauce Morelli sets out to catch the chef s killers, but he s not alone in his quest The barbecue sauce company is offering a million dollar reward for the capture of Chipotle s killers, and Lula wants to win the prize Speculating that a cook off contestant killed Chipotle, Lula decides to enter the competition and hopefully find the murderers there

equipment, and they create one disaster after another In the meantime, the killers knowing Lula can ID them keep trying to bump her off Lula takes to wearing a flak helmet and Kevlar vest which makes a nice contrast with her hunky firefighter boyfriend, who wears a blue Dolly Parton evening gown While all this is going on, Stephanie is chasing bail skips AND doing a side job for Ranger s security company, Rangeman Some of Ranger s clients have experienced break ins, and Stephanie is checking out the Rangeman staff to see if an inside man is stealing security codes As usual, there s lots of

her apartment killers shoot grenades into her windows she s attacked with paint balls and a bucket of paint is spilled on her In a very funny scene, Lula gets stuck in Stephanie s car window with her generous butt on the inside and her big boobs on the outside Many series regulars make an appearance including Stephanie s mom who introduces Stephanie to eligible bachelors unemployed losers Stephanie s dad who unhappily endures barbecue experiments for dinner and Joyce Barnhardt who puts her skanky eye on Morelli much to Stephanie s chagrin Eventually, Rangeman s problems are solved Chipotle s killers are nabbed and the reader s had a lot of laughs.This is an entertaining cozy mystery, recommended to fans of the genre You can follow my reviews at I didn t realize that I hadn t put these on my Goodreads so I just did It has been so long that I can not individually review them However, I did read a review on this one to make sure I had read it and found something interesting that I will comment on Some reviewers are saying that they have lost interest because the plot is similar, the characters aren t growing, the romance is at a standstill, Stephanie is in the same crap job and same crap apartment not the same crap car she has blown I didn t realize that I hadn t put these on my Goodreads so I just did It has been so long that I can not individually review them However, I did read a review on this one to make sure I had read it and found something interesting that I will comment on Some reviewers are saying that they have lost interest because the plot is similar, the characters aren t growing, the romance is at a standstill, Stephanie is in the same crap job and same crap apartment not the same crap car she has blown up at least 4 However that is part of the charm of these books for me These books are funny to the point of hysterical If the love triangle was solved the sexual tension wouldn t be there If Stephanie got a great job, the whole bounty hunter theme would cease to exist If Grandma Mazer or LuLu grew up I would cry Their characters sometimes make the books These books are not meant for their literary genius in the element of surprise, yet the ability of the author to keep the characters the same is almost a gift to her readers I can t beleive I m saying this, but I think I m getting bored of Stephanie Plum and her dumb antics How anyone as stupid as she gets not just one, but two wicked hot guys hot on her tail, and solves the crime sorta is beyond me I think the books have become too Lula focused and frankly, almost too slapstick in the humor I don t think the writing is as tight as it used to be, nor do I feel as if any of the characters have much depth any.So, having said this, will I stop reading them No I can t

for Lula hanging out Stephanie s car window topless Even though we STILL don t have resolution in the Stephanie Ranger Morelli love triangle and, in spite of the fact that Stephanie never seems to
