Tricky twenty-two - Janet Evanovich

Something big is brewing in Trenton, N.J., and it could blow at any minute. 

Stephanie Plum might not be the world's greatest bounty hunter, but she knows when she's being played. Ken Globovic (aka Gobbles), hailed as the Supreme Exalted Zookeeper of the animal house known as Zeta fraternity, has been arrested for beating up the dean of students at Kiltman College. Gobbles has missed his court date and gone into hiding. People have seen him on campus, but no one will talk. Things just aren't adding up, and Stephanie can't shake the feeling that something funny is going on at the college - and it's not just Zeta fraternity pranks. 

As much as people love Gobbles, they hate Doug Linken. When Linken is gunned down in his backyard it's good riddance, and the list of possible murder suspects is long. The only people who care about finding Linken's killer are Trenton cop Joe Morelli, who has been assigned the case, security expert Ranger, who was hired to protect Linken, and Stephanie, who has her eye on a cash prize and hopefully has some tricks up her sleeve. 

My thoughts:
The best one in a while. Srsly, when was the last good one?

Still, everything was the same.

Stephanie manage to blow up and destroy many cars.
Ranger called her babe
Morelli and her had a fight
Granny pulled out her gun
Lola was being Lola
They messed up with the skips.

But something was there, something that has been missing. The humour was back and not just the same old same old.

Still, why can I not quit these?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!? But, BUT there was hope at the end, but knowing Steph she will F it up and we will be back to the same old stuff

  1. Yeah, I said I wasn't going to read any more after the last one I read but you've made this one sound a little better.

  3. It's been a while since I've read this series! I binge read the first 11 or so, and then I had to take a break. I got tired of the love triangle (PICK RANGER ALREADY! I know she'll end up with Morelli in the end though), and it seems like that element is still going strong. So glad this had something that had been missing from previous books though!

  4. At least you liked this one more. I can't believe this is still going. I guess if it makes money and people are still enjoying - why not?

  7. I gave up at least 6 books ago, maybe more. It just got too repetitive and annoying.

  11. Lol! Same old, same old. But I'm glad it was fun for you anyway. :D

  12. I can kind of understand why it's hard to quit. You've stayed on for 22 books after all! Sometimes I feel like that, when I've followed a series for a long time. It's like, I've come this far already, why not?

  14. I can understand, I can't quit eithe. It's the series that made me read in English but I still need to read the previous book.

  15. I haven't tried this series, but I know exactly how you mean about not being able to quit a series even when you haven't been happy with it. I finally quit Anita Blake this year. I was finally tired of the politics of her love life and decided that I couldn't deal with it any more and DNF the most recent book.

  16. I stopped reading the series after #7 or 8. Will I miss much if I jump to this one?

  17. I have the first book in this series, but based on what you and several others say, it sounds tiresome and I'm in no rush to start it.
