Larry Virgil skipped out on his latest court date after he was arrested for hijacking an eighteen-wheeler full of premium bourbon. Fortunately for bounty hunter Stephanie Plum, Larry is just stupid enough to attempt almost the exact same crime again. Only this time he flees the scene, leaving behind a freezer truck loaded with Bogart ice cream and a dead body—frozen solid and covered in chocolate and chopped pecans.
As fate would have it, Stephanie’s mentor and occasional employer, Ranger, needs her to go undercover at the Bogart factory to find out who’s putting their employees on ice and sabotaging the business.
It’s going to be hard for Stephanie to keep her hands off all that ice cream, and even harder for her to keep her hands off Ranger. It’s also going to be hard to explain to Trenton’s hottest cop, Joe Morelli, why she is spending late nights with Ranger, late nights with Lula and Randy Briggs—who are naked and afraid—and late nights keeping tabs on Grandma Mazur and her new fella. Stephanie Plum has a lot on her plate, but for a girl who claims to have “virtually no marketable skills,” these are the kinds of sweet assignments she does best.
This is the latest installment of the Stephanie Plum series. This book was more of a lack luster than some of the more recent ones were and I didn’t think that was possible.
Stephanie is still with Joe with no marriage on the horizon. She is still attracted to Ranger who is also attracted to her.
Stephanie is still a bounty hunter that isn’t always good at her job. She usually captures the fugitives by pure accident or with the help of Ranger. She needs a job that she is good at and pays her well.
Lulu is well still Lulu. Grandma Mazur who is usually hysterical was not mentioned in this book much.
I’m not really sure why I keep reading this series. I keep saying I’ll stop but I keep reading the next one to see if anything changes in Stephanie’s life. *sigh* Nothing does.
I wish the author would end this series already and let Stephanie ride off into the sunset with one of these 2 men.
