BOTTOM-LINE:
Fast paced, silly plot
.
PLOT OR PREMISE:
Stephanie Plum has settled in to her job as a bounty hunter, and so picking up a missing NJ girl who failed to appear after stealing her boyfriend's truck seems like a cakewalk. And there's a bonus -- the boyfriend is willing to give her money too to find her and get some supposed love letters back from her. Easy peasy. Except nothing is easy for Plum, ever. The missing girl wants to stay missing, and her mother and co-worker are helping. Even when somebody else is looking for the girl too, and willing to hurt people to get them to talk.
.
WHAT I LIKED:
Plum has an extra helper in this case, a guy who's good with codes and clues. A flamboyant cross-dresser, he livens up the scene. And the relationship with Moretti leaps forward with the two cohabitating for awhile. I love the scenes where the women are talking about guns and what type of gun to carry, use, etc.
.
WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE:
There are some baddies who are painfully obviously involved, which Plum misses for most of the book. And someone who is out to get her is obvious as well. Almost painful to watch. Oh, and one of my favorite characters. Ranger, has nothing to do for the entire book. More like an afterthought to include him.
.
DISCLOSURE:
I received no compensation, not even a free copy, in exchange for this review. I am not personal friends with the author, nor do I follow her on social media.

I am officially a Janet Evanovich fan! I bought "Twelve Sharp" for just $1 at one of the OPL branches & I. COULD. NOT. PUT. IT. DOWN! Granted, it was explicit in places, but I took that in stride. I like her style of writing, funny, taking you from point to point & making you want the read to never end! I'm reading this one now & can't wait to read the entire series! I'm looking to get each volume for myself. I can't wait!

Four to Score was funnier than the earlier books - how could it not be with a Transvestite named Sally Sweet!

A great book, just like the rest! I love reading these books. They're so hillarious with a dark side. It's a great combination!
