My Rating ~ 3 bites and a nibble

Stephanie Plum is a half-assed bounty hunter with the hots for two guys and has a best friend who is crazy. She has the paperwork needed to catch Salvatore Sunucchi for skipping out on his court date, but the problem is everyone loves Uncle Sunny and no one wants to tell her where he’s hanging his hat these days. Oh, everyone knows he’s a mob boss and he murdered someone, but hey, he’s so charming he doesn’t deserve to go to prison. While Stephanie tries to run down Sunny and avoid Sunny’s henchmen she’s helping hot security guy Ranger to solve the murders of several old ladies who were strangled and left in dumpsters. Hot cop guy Morelli says it’s not his case, but he’s helping out some, too. Because why not?

Even though I read book 25 just a few weeks ago, I hadn’t realized I’d somehow skipped this one. I mean, it’s understandable. They all run together like onelongassbook. This one is actually a bit better than the others, but not by much. Only because Ranger is in it a lot and Stephanie screws up even more than usual and actually gets hurt. Does it knock some sense into her? Not really. But I like how it twists a bit more than usual. In any case, this book is marshmallow fluff. It’s no good for you, but it’s pretty tasty in small doses. Light entertainment is all you get out of this one. As usual.
