Notorious Nineteen: A Stephanie Plum Novel [Hardcover]

I've finished "Notorious Nineteen" the 19th book in her Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich.

Product Description

New Jersey bounty hunter Stephanie Plum is certain of three truths: People don’t just vanish into thin air. Never anger old people. And don’t do what Tiki tells you to do.

After a slow summer of chasing low-level skips for her cousin Vinnie’s bail bonds agency, Stephanie Plum finally lands an assignment that could put her checkbook back in the black. Geoffrey Cubbin, facing trial for embezzling millions from Trenton’s premier assisted-living facility, has mysteriously vanished from the hospital after an emergency appendectomy. Now it’s on Stephanie to track down the con man. Unfortunately, Cubbin has disappeared without a trace, a witness, or his money-hungry wife. Rumors are stirring that he must have had help with the daring escape or that maybe he never made it out of his room alive. Since the hospital staff’s lips seem to be tighter than the security, and it’s hard for Stephanie to blend in to assisted living, Stephanie’s Grandma Mazur goes in undercover. But when a second felon goes missing from the same hospital, Stephanie is forced into working side by side with Trenton’s hottest cop, Joe Morelli, in order to crack the case.

The real problem is, no Cubbin also means no way to pay the rent. Desperate for money or maybe just desperate Stephanie accepts a secondary job guarding her secretive and mouthwatering mentor Ranger from a deadly Special Forces adversary. While Stephanie is notorious for finding trouble, she may have found a little more than she bargained for this time around. Then again a little food poisoning, some threatening notes, and a bridesmaid’s dress with an excess of taffeta never killed anyone or did they? If Stephanie Plum wants to bring in a paycheck, she’ll have to remember: No guts, no glory.

My Review:

In this book Stephanie focuses more on her relationship with Joe even though Ranger has a bigger role in this one.

I really enjoyed the part when Stephanie is Ranger's bodyguard and helps him figure who is leaving threatening letters.  I also enjoyed the Cubbin plotline which was quite interesting and Lulu and grandma were hilarious as ever.
