Seven Up by Janet Evanovich
All New Jersey bounty hunter Stephanie Plum has to do is bring in semi-retired bail jumper Eddie DeChooch. For an old man he's still got a knack for slipping out of sight--and raising hell. How else can Stephanie explain the bullet-riddled corpse in Eddie's garden? Who else would have a clue as to why two of Stephanie's friends suddenly vanished? For answers Stephanie has the devil to pay: her mentor, Ranger. The deal? He'll give Stephanie all the help she needs--if she gives him everything he wants...
As if things weren't complicated enough, Stephanie's just discovered her Grandma Mazur's own unmentionable alliance with Eddie. Add a series of unnerving break-ins, not to mention the bombshell revelation leveled by Stephanie's estranged sister, and Stephanie's ready for some good news. Unfortunately, a marriage proposal from Joe Morelli, the love of her life, isn't quite cutting it. And now--murder, a randy paramour, a wily mobster, death threats, extortion, and a triple kidnapping aside--Stephanie's really got the urge to run for her life..
Here I am again with book seven of the Stephanie Plum series. Aptly entitled Seven Up, things got quite interesting as Morelli kinda accidentally proposed to Stephanie in the ending to Hot Six. in Seven Up, the reference of marriage popped up and caused some issues between Stephanie and Joe and Stephanie mother making appointment at the bridal shop.
Stephanie's sister Valerie moved back home with her daughters and that brought another angle of fun to the series as they are as different as day and night. Between the above and having to find a human heart, Stephanie is having it rather complicated in this book.
Seven Up ended with some unfinished business between Stephanie and Ranger. You would need to read the following book, Hard Eight to find out what happen.
