Ten Big Ones by Janet Evanovich

Synopsis :

So your car has been blown up (again).
A local gang has put a contract on you.
There’s a psycho on the loose.
When did going out for nachos get so complicated?
When you’re Stephanie Plum, kick- ass bounty hunter.

Life is never easy for this super-sassy Jersey girl and when Stephanie witnesses a robbery on her lunch break, things start to get a whole lot tougher. She must not only keep the local bail-jumpers in line but also find a ruthless killer known as the Junkman, before her finds her. And then there’s the mother of all challenges – staying faithful to her cute cop boyfriend, Joe Morelli, by resisting the charms of her seriously sexy mentor Ranger.

Sounds like a tall order but this is Stephanie Plum. And when your partner’s an ex-hooker with a penchant for lurid spandex and your grandma likes to pack heat, you take it all in your stride.

She’s sassy, she’s tough and she kick ass. At the same time, she’s vulnerable and can get real soppy. That’s Stephanie Plum for you. Throw in Grandma who has a gun in her handbag, Lulu, the filing clerk where Stephanie works who never does any filing and Sally, a bus driver by day and cross dresser band member by night. Don’t forget too boyfriend, Morelli and co-worker, Ranger who added much spices in Stephanie’s already too much exciting life.

I wasn’t sure if I would like this book having didn’t really like an earlier book of Janet Evanovich that I read beginning of this year.  However, me think that since this is the famous Stephanie Plum series, the one that generates big bucks for the author so there must be appealing factor. Well, I wasn’t disappointed. It’s a good entertaining read.  If you are reading this while waiting for someone/something, you might probably wish you can wait a little bit longer so that you can continue reading this book!

This is the 10th book (duh!) in the Stephanie Plum series. The title Ten Big Ones refers to the reward for bringing in the ruthless killer Junkman and you will be surprised as to who’s the one collecting! A google search reveals that there's now about 20 books in total for this series. I have some serious catching up to do.
