It's dangerous to owe money to a mobster...
Stephanie Plum inherits a 'lucky' bottle from her uncle pip in Sizzling Sixteen, but is it good luck or bad luck? Janet Evanovich's hilarious and thrilling Stephanie Plum series is not to be missed by fans of JD Robb and Lee Child.
Raves for Evanovich's bestselling series: 'A laugh a minute against a background of dastardly crime with a ditzy heroine and two - yes TWO - of the hottest heroes ever created' (Woman's Weekly); 'A laugh-out-loud page-turner' (Heat).
Stephanie Plum's no-good cousin and boss, Vinnie, has been kidnapped over gambling debts - and if there's no Vinnie, that means she's out of a job. But until the bond office closes, she's got bounty hunting to do: not least for an elderly bigamist and a drug dealer with a six-foot pet alligator.
Can they find Vinnie in time? Will Stephanie ever get engaged to her hot cop boyfriend Morelli? And exactly what kind of luck is she hoping for anyway?
What readers are saying about Sizzling Sixteen:
'This novel will have you laughing out loud and sympathising with Stephanie in more ways than you thought possible'
'The Stephanie Plum series simply has to be the greatest work of fiction ever written'
'Stephanie doing what she does best - causing mayhem'
In this tepid Stephanie Plum adventure from Evanovich (Finger Lickin' Fifteen, etc.), a personal case distracts the Trenton, N.J., bondswoman from tracking the usual group of eccentric skips the kidnapping of her cousin, Vinnie, who's being held for ransom in the high six figures. As Stephanie, sidekick Lula, and office manager Connie soon realize, Vincent Plum Bail Bonds is seriously in the red due to Vinnie's gambling. Vinnie's also gotten caught up with local mobster Bobby Sunflower in a complicated scheme. Even though her sleazy cousin isn't her favorite person and chasing oddball felons isn't her ideal career, Stephanie knows family loyalty counts for something, plus she owes him for giving her a job all those years ago. So with Lula and Connie in tow and romantic interests Morelli and Ranger lurking in the background Stephanie must save the day once again. Evanovich is at her best spinning the bizarre subplots involving Stephanie's bail jumpers, but the larger story simply recycles elements from previous installments.

Another cracker, love this series great writing, characters brillant. Why hasn't a tv series come from these books. Ranger or Morrelli or both! Great fun, love Grandma. Stephanie Plum is an excellent heroine not even close to perfect but full of integrity. On to 17 next.
