I loved every minute of this gem. Lula and Stephanie find that a mystery woman is stalking Stephanie with intent to kill. She claims she is Ranger's wife, and Ranger is mysteriously unreachable. The Hilarity volume rises as the new owners of the town funeral parlor are introduced to Grandma Mazur. I was wary that Janet Evanovich might be running out of material and situations to write about, but she cooked up a goodie in this one!
So glad to be back with Stephanie Plum again. This book is definitely worthy of the franchise and if you want to hang with Stephanie again, this is the way to do it! We learn more about Ranger in the process.
All fluff. A three evening read. Always enjoyable. Everytime I think this will be the last one, Evanovich must be out of ideas for Stephanie. Twelve Sharp was still the same book as the others, yet different enough that I didn't say "Bah!" and put it down.
Twelve Sharp is yet another laugh outloud book by Janet Evanovich. Stephanie Plum (bounty hunter from New Jersey) tries to bring back her cousin Vinnie's bonds while she's looking for Ranger who seems to have disappeared. If you've read the previous 11 books in the series don't miss this one as it has lots of funny episodes with her partner Lula and her wacky family.
This is by far my favorite book of the series so far. Finally we get to focus in on the life of Ranger (somewhat) and learn a little about him. Twelve Sharp had all of the action, drama and laughs that keep me reading Janet Evanovich's Plum series. Great read!
I have been working my way through the Stephanie Plum series, & I have to say, though I enjoyed each & every one of them, THIS ONE is by far the funniest. I chuckled, laughed out loud & guffawed at some of her descriptions & actions - I even had to read it out loud to my husband, and then he said he wanted to read the book! You cannot miss this one!
As always, I enjoyed this book thoroughly. I was afraid it would be boring, since it's part of the Stephanie Plum series and I wondered how much longer she could go on with the situations she runs into, but Janet Evanovich did not let me down. This story had a good balance of romance, excitement and humor and I enjoyed it thoroughly.
