Book #72 was Lean Mean Thirteen, the 13th book in Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum series. The back of the book reads:
From coast to coast and around the world, Janet Evanovichâ€™s Stephanie Plum novels continue to make bestselling history each summer. Her legions of fans catapult her books to the top of every list, from the New York Times, to USA Today; from the Wall Street Journal, to Entertainment Weekly, and Publishers Weekly. In the thirteenth book in the series, the stakes are raised even higher as Stephanie Plum finds herself in her most dangerous, hilarious and hottest chase yet. With her loveably offbeat family along for the ride (as well as a few new faces), thereâ€™s no doubt that the Stephanie Plum novels put the â€œfunâ€ in dysfunctional, and itâ€™s clear to see why theyâ€™re called â€œHot Stuffâ€ by the New York Times and why Evanovich herself is called â€œthe master.â€
I’ve heard some complaints about this installment, but I don’t ask for much in a Stephanie Plum novel. All I want is some wacky hijinx, crazy FTAs, at least one destroyed vehicle, and Ranger acting strong, silent and sexy. A star for each from me!
