Hard Eight

by Janet Evanovich

‘Stephanie Plum’ series Book #8

“Hard Up”

Fugitive Apprehension Agent Stephanie Plum has a big problem on her hands: Seven-year-old Annie Soder and her mother, Evelyn, have disappeard. Evelyn’s estranged husband, Steven, a shady owner of a seedy bar, is not at all happy. Finding a kidnapped child is not an assignment for a bounty hunter. But Evelyn’s grandmother lives next door to Stephanie’s parents, so Stephanie follows the trail left by Annie and Evelyn – and finds a lot more than she bargained for.

“Hard Risk”

Steven Soder is somehow linked with a very scary Eddie Abruzzi. Trenton cop and on-again, off-again fiance Joe Morelli and Stephanie’s mentor and tormentor, Ranger, warn Stephanie about Abruzzi, but it’s Abruzzi’s eyes and mannerisms that frighten Stephanie most. Stephanie needs Ranger’s savvy and expertise, and she’s willing to accept his help to find Annie even thought it might mean getting too involved with Ranger. Stephanie, Ranger, Lula (who’s not going to missing riding with Ranger,) and Evelyn’s lawyer/Laundromat manager set out to find Annie. The search turns out to be a race among Stephanie’s posse, the True Blue Bonds’ agent – a Rangerette known as Jeanne Ellen Burrows – and the Abruzzi crew. Plus, there’s a killer rabbit on the loose!

“Hard Eight”

Strap on your helmet and get ready for the ride of your life! Hard Eight. The world of Stephanie Plum has never been wilder.

Review: Read June 29th, 2006. Why-oh-why didn’t Janet go into a little more detail about Steph’s ‘escapade’ with Rangre? Dammit, I wanted more info than that! LOL! That’s okay. He’s still just as hot as ever. I enjoyed the story, but it still seems strange, the situation between Joe and Steph. Why is it that he can’t accept wholely who Steph is and what she does for a living? Would he feel the same if she was a cop? If you ask me, the attitude is a selfish one, and he’s really starting to piss me off. Wonder what the next story will bring. I adore this series, and thank everyone who turned me onto it. THANK YOU!!!
