After having read a few Jamie Swift stories, it was like taking a step back to get into the Stephanie Plum "head" again. But, I have to say, once I did, I enjoyed this story as much as the first three Plum books. This one made me laugh out loud several times. I love the romance with Joe and the kooky characters Evanovich conjures up.
Regardless, I'm hooked on the continuation of the main characters from book to book. It keeps me coming back for more.
Good job lady!

I love her great characters. Even funnier than than the one before. The book makes you happy. It makes you laugh. And oh by the way, it is a great murder mystery.
Narrator is too old for Stephanie plum .
But other then that this book made me start wanting to actually read books. Normally I'm not the person to sit and read a book but I have sat down and read 1-4 almost and they are amazing
Another great book she and her friends cracked me up plus her flirty way she is with the man I'm her life
I am a fan of the Stephanie Plum I much prefer CJ Britt as narrator. I am so glad audiobooks.com added the rest of these books so I can listen to them. I have read all of the Plum series and enjoyed them so much I decided to come back and listen to them on here. Janet is one talented writer.
I won't say the narrator RUINED the book, but she certainly wasn't up to the previous standard. I did eventually get used to her voice but she sounded way too old to portray the heroine.
I really enjoyed the first 3 of Janet Evanovich's books because the story was fun, and the narrator was FANTASTIC. This one however is TERRIBLE, because of the narrator. She has no depth, no variation, every sentence she reads is the same - just awful. Please bring back the darling, wonderful gal, with the Jersey accent and he exceptional talent for narration. This one is coming back to you, unfinished. Bummer!
I was looking forward to book four after listening to 1-3. Unfortunately the narrator was so awful, I didn't make it past the first page. Hoping book 5 will be better and I can get back to enjoying these books.
I made, what now appears to be, the mistake of reading one of the later Stephanie Plum series books first. I think I started with 14. Evanovich is SO much better "now".
This one lacked some of the wonderful character development that seems to me to have developed in the later books. And the story in this one was also a little lacking.
Still not terrible, but not up to the standard of the later stuff.
I have grown to really like the Stephanie Plum series; its too bad that they changed narrators because now I will actually READ them instead of listen to that narrator again.
The previous narrator was so much better and after being use to all the voices from the previous books, I find myself "redoing" every sentence in her voice throughout my listening.
This new narrator is horrible. Inflections at all the wrong places, the voices out of character (granny went from a little old lady voice to what sounds like a man who smokes too much, for example!).
These are great "fun" books that were easy to listen to and I was looking forward to listening to them all. Not any more. Now they'll be "beach reading instead.
