Book Review #484 - Seven Up (Stephanie Plum #7) by Janet Evanovich



All New Jersey bounty hunter Stephanie Plum has to do is bring in semi-retired bail jumper Eddie DeChooch. For an old man he's still got a knack for slipping out of sight--and raising hell. How else can Stephanie explain the bullet-riddled corpse in Eddie's garden? Who else would have a clue as to why two of Stephanie's friends suddenly vanished? For answers Stephanie has the devil to pay: her mentor, Ranger. The deal? He'll give Stephanie all the help she needs--if she gives him everything he wants...


As if things weren't complicated enough, Stephanie's just discovered her Grandma Mazur's own unmentionable alliance with Eddie. Add a series of unnerving break-ins, not to mention the bombshell revelation leveled by Stephanie's estranged sister, and Stephanie's ready for some good news. Unfortunately, a marriage proposal from Joe Morelli, the love of her life, isn't quite cutting it. And now--murder, a randy paramour, a wily mobster, death threats, extortion, and a triple kidnapping aside--Stephanie's really got the urge to run for her life...

My Rating: 4/5

This is the seventh book in the Stephanie Plum Series. I love how in incorporates the series numbers into the titles so it is obvious what order the books are in.

The situations Stephanie gets herself into and the randomness of the people she meets is just hilarious. As long as they keep being this funny, I will continue to read whatever amount of books that are published.

The romance in this book starts getting serious with Morelli pushing for marriage. I am like Stephanie though, I can't decide between Morelli and Ranger. I think Stephanie and Ranger would be good together but it is hard to overlook the history she has with Morelli.

Just when you think Stephanie's family couldn't get any more dysfunctional, her 'perfect' sister turns up unexpected with her daughter who thinks she is a horse.

Grandma Mazur wasn't as involved in this book as she has been in the previous books but the inclusion of Mooner made up for it in terms of humour.
