Book Review #586 - To the Nines (Stephanie Plum #9) by Janet Evanovich


My Rating: 3.5/5

Source: Bought

Buy: The Book Depository


Stephanie Plum's got rent to pay, people shooting at her, and psychos wanting her dead every day of the week (much to the dismay of her mother, her family, the men in her life, the guy who slices meat at the deli...oh, the list goes on). An ordinary person would cave under the pressure.

But hey, she's from Jersey.

Stephanie Plum may not be the best bounty hunter in beautiful downtown Trenton, but she's pretty darn good at turning bad situations her way...and she always gets her man. In To The Nines, her cousin Vinnie (who's also her boss) has posted bail on Samuel Singh, an immigrant who becomes an illegal alien by violating his Visa and extending his stay in the United States. When the elusive Mr. Singh goes missing, Stephanie is on the case. But what she uncovers is far more sinister than anyone imagines and leads to a group of killers who give new meaning to the word "hunter..."

In a race against time that takes her from the Jersey Turnpike to the Vegas strip, Stephanie Plum is on the chase of her life.

It has been a while since I last read a Stephanie Plum book and I really enjoyed being back in her universe. 

This book fell a little flat for me. I still enjoyed it but I didn't feel like it added anything to the entire series. 

The love triangle is starting to annoy me - and I still (like Stephanie) can't make up my mind between the two guys. 

The added family drama was definitely humerous but I would have liked more of Grandma Mazur. 

Overall, this is just another great book in what is becoming one of my favourite adult series, I just hope I don't leave it this long again to read the next book.
