Book #41
Book Title: Eleven on Top
Author: Janet Evanovich
Category: fiction; mystery
# of pages: 321
My rating of the book, F- [worst] to A [best].: A
Short description/summary of the book: (taken from amazon.com):Stephanie Plum, Trenton's favorite bondswoman, is having a career crisis, which gives Janet Evanovich plenty of opportunities to showcase her series heroine in a variety of alternative vocations, from dry cleaner to factory worker. Most of them don't last a full working day, which is good for the reader, since it plunges Stephanie back into the always seedy, often dangerous, and always colorful world of fugitives who'd rather flee than face their day in court. She may be tired of having her life threatened, her cars torched or blown up, and her apartment broken into, but one thing she can say about her job is that it's never boring... and neither is she. Despite her intentions of going straight at a job with a little more security and a bit less excitement, an old client won't let her--he keeps leaving her threatening notes, stalking and scaring her, and making sure she needs the protection of the two men in her life--Joe Morelli, the sexy cop who's been bedding her since high school, and Ranger, the even sexier tough guy who can take down the meanest fugitive around but has a tender spot in his heart for the plucky Ms. Plum. All Evanovich fans' favorite characters people this sprightly caper novel, including Lula, the fast-food-chomping former hooker who's hot to take over Stephanie's job but really belongs in a WWE Takedown; Grandma Mazur, who'd rather go to a wake than a fancy-dress ball; Grandma Bella, the matriarch of the Morelli family whose evil eye frightens even the indomitable Stephanie; and Valerie, Stephanie's sister, who's about to embark on another trip to the altar. A great beach read, Eleven on Top is a guilty pleasure that will delight readers of the author's 10 earlier novels and should win her even more fans.

My Thoughts: I find this series to be absolutely hilarious and I think that Eleven on Top is one of the funniest books in the series. It was fun reading about Stephanie and her various jobs throughout the book. If you are a fan of funny and quirky mysteries then I highly suggest the Stephanie Plum series.

Books read this year: 41/50. I'm 82% done!

Next read(s): I am about to start Twelve Sharp by Janet Evanovich.

I LOVE this series!! It's by far my favorite series that I've ever read. Honestly. I lust so hard after Joe Morelli it's just wrong. =P

I think she's great, too!
And, I love the character development. You can definitely see Ms Plum change through the books. I'm up to Hard Eight in the series, but have also read Visions of Sugar Plums (between 8 & 9).
The next book on my pile is To the Nines.
I'm also lending them to all and sundry and no one to date has been disappointed, and can't wait for the next in the series.
Just Great!

I just finished the next book in the series but unfortunately I have posted too much in the community and have to wait to post it and now it's been approved!
