Back of the Book reads:

New secrets, old flames, and hidden agendas are about to send bounty hunter Stephanie Plum on her most outrageous adventure yet!

Mistake #1: Dickie Orr. Stephanie was married to him for about fifteen minutes before she caught him cheating on her with her arch-nemesis Joyce Barnhardt. Another fifteen minutes after that, Stephanie filed for divorce, hoping never to see either one of them again.

Mistake #2: Doing favors for super bounty hunter Carlos Manoso (a.k.a. Ranger). Ranger needs her to meet with Dickie and find out if he’s doing something shady. Turns out, he is. Turns out, he’s also back to doing Joyce Barnhardt. And it turns out Ranger’s favors always come with a price.

Mistake #3: Going completely nutso while doing the favor for Ranger, and trying to apply bodiy injury to Dickie in front of the entire office. Now Dickie has disappeared and Stephanie is the natural suspect in his disappearance. Is Dickie dead? Can he be found? And can she stay one step ahead in this new, dangerous game? Joe Morelli, the hottest cop in Trenton, NJ, is also keeping Stephanie on her toes – and he may know more thaan he lets on to her… It’s a cat-and-mouse game for Stephanie Plum, where the ultimate prize might be her life.

Review: LOL, another excellent Stephanie Plum novel!

Oh, how I adore this series! Lots of laughs, Stephanie still gets herself into trouble in some way. Lots of colourful characters, old and new alike, and Grandma Mazur still knows how to make the reader laugh. Trying to figure out how Steph gets herself into these situations is still a great wonder, even though the reader gets it from A to Z.

Ranger still turns her to mush as much as Morelli, and Morelli still has it in his head that Stephanie should be doing something other than bounty hunting. If only he could accept what is, and stop forcing the issue, I bet he and Stephanie could live happily ever after.

I still like watching the banter between the triangle. While Ranger isn’t looking for ties, only fun, Stephanie wouldn’t mind it. However, she does have her heart set on settling down, Ranger isn’t part of that plan – not by a long shot. I like what they have between them, though. You’d think that Morelli, knowing this, would put his butt in gear and think better about the situation, but I have a feeling it isn’t going to happen any time soon.

I soooo can’t wait to see what Stephanie gets herself into in Fearless Fourteen.
