"Stephanie Plum is a bounty hunter who often runs into trouble on the job, but she has family, friends, and several men to help her out of sticky situations. There's Lula, a plus-sized former hooker turned bounty hunter, and Grandma Mazur, Stephanie's outrageous grandmother who packs a gun and sometimes tags along on cases."-- Provided by publisher.
Professional grave robber and semi-professional loon, Simon Diggery, won't let Stephanie Plum take him in until she agrees to care for his boa constrictor, Ethel. Then headless bodies start appearing across town. When a homeless man is murdered and dumped behind a church Stephanie knows that she's the only one with a prayer of catching this killer. If all that's not enough, Diesel's back in town. Cop Joe Morelli isn't pleased at this unexpected arrival nor is Ranger, the high-powered security consultant who has his own plans for Stephanie.

Maybe I'm just getting bored with this series, or maybe I just don't like Diesel and any storyline he's involved in. Also, more Ranger is always a good thing, however I think it's time for Ranger to move away and for Stephanie and Joe to get married and the series ends. And we all live happily ever after!

I was quite disappointed in this one! After waiting so long for the new Stephanie Plum novel, I found this one to be even fluffier than the rest of the series (an accomplishment for a series that is on the lighter side of comedy/mystery). I was also disappointed that the character of Diesel was introduced as a regular into the Stephanie Plum cannon -rather than as he has been, a regular in the 'seasonal one-offs' such as Plum Spooky or Plum Lovin'. This is especially annoying because the author doesn't do much with him...

In a series that already has the main character in constant confusion over the men in her life---adding an additional man who doesn't add much to the plot or character development seems unnecessary!

Worth a read if you're a Plum fan, but don't expect too much!

Silly, stupid, what a chore,
Stephanie’s plots have become a bore,
I’ll read this series NEVERMORE!

Yikes!! Zombies. Always good for some belly laugh lines in her books - this one too. Her Stephanie Plum series has always had an element of 'crude' in them. This one more than I have noticed in the past.

Not her best maybe it is time to wrap up this series.

Well, I'm sure I'm not the first one to say, "I've read every Stephanie Plum book!" While the usual crazy shenanigans are going on...this wasn't her very best plot. I must say however that given how many situations she's put New Jersey Stephanie in she still manages to amaze me.
On the positive side (at least from my POV!) Stephanie is now rompin' with both Diesel and Ranger in one book. SPOILER ALERT : and she's lost a bet (times two!) and paid up only once!!
SO curious to see if payment number two is in book 25 !!
