Explosive Eighteen by Janet Evanovich
(Random House, 2011, 305 pages)
Explosive Eighteen by Janet Evanovich is the latest Stephanie Plum novel. Stephanie Plum is a fictional bounty hunter from Trenton, N.J. Using a combination of luck, more luck, and the talents of her friends, Stephanie Plum usually bumbles her way to getting her man or woman. In Explosive Eighteen, Stephanie is the accidental recipient of a photograph. There are many villains looking for the photograph. So, once again, Stephanie must watch her back and solve the case.
Each of the Stephanie Plum novels contains a number in the title. The first novel, One for the Money, will be released as a movie in 2012. If done right, the movie should be lots of fun. Stephanie Plum has two hot love interests, a gun toting Grandma, a boss who is also her cousin named Vinnie, and a co-worker who is a former ‘ho.
Janet Evanovich is a prolific writer. I’ve read several of her novels. Evanovich’s novels are all humorous and quick reads. The Stephanie Plum novels leave you wanting to know what happens next. I recommend Explosive Eighteen to anyone looking for a “fun” read.
