Much as people love Gobbles they hate Doug Linken When Linken is gunned down in his backyard the list of possible murder suspects is long The only people who care about finding Linken's killer are Trenton cop Joe Morelli who has been assigned the case security expert Ranger who was hired to protect Linken and Stephanie who has her eye on a cash prize and hopefully has some tricks up her slee Find all of my reviews at StarsObviously anyone who has already subjected themselves to TWENTY ONE prior books in this series has a serious mental disorder In my defense I thought I was over my addiction I mean Evanovich is up to like 24 and I had stopped at 21 when NetGalley uit offering ARCs so that was good right?

    Before ReadingOk Janet Evanovich let me level with you here Make this the last book Make it good Make it not be like books 15 21 and end this played out series Please Do not reuse all your old material For the love of God let Stephanie choose between Ranger and Morelli or neither Permanently Let her not be the same person who has not grown or changed at all give her something More than a hamster PLEASEAfter ReadingOk Better than the last two books in my opinionStill a little predictable but Stephanie actually briefly considered other career options and made a step in A DIRECTION romantically Hallelujah Yes some parts were still predictable as all can be and naturally view spoilershe gets kidnapped once makes out with both Ranger and Joe Grandma and Lula shoot at people a lot and at least three cars get destroyed hide spoiler

    Poor Stephanie Her life has gotten so complicated that she's considering changing professions Her FTA'S aren't coming along uietly she keeps forgetting to buy bullets for her gun she still can't keep a car intact for any period of time she's getting pranked by the college fraternity from hell and something is up with Morelli His post coital suggestion that they break up and that Steph should see other people just not Ranger has totally thrown her for a loop But Stephanie isn't short on suitors Grandma Mazur has been catfishing and she's used Steph's picture and personal info as bait Adding to the migraine of her life is a series of murders linked to the frat from hell and a mad scientist with weaponized fleas What's a girl to do? Maybe become a hairdresserFun fast paced and utterly satisfying this installment delivers I recommend it

    HURRAY When the first three pages cracked me up right off the bat I was happy as pie and when the laughs continued well let's just say TRICKY TWENTY TWO is one of the better Stephanie Plum novels I've read in uite some timeYes our bounty hunter still trashes a few of Ranger's fancy cars Yes Grandma Mazur still attends her visitations and Yes Lula is still her usual spandex eating machine self; BUT I had many laugh out loud moments in TRICKY TWENTY TWO than the last three books combined Even Mrs P gets in a good oneSo get ready for laughs some red hot encounters plus a shocker of a surprise from Morelli and of course the usual duked out in black Ranger appearancesWill Stephanie ever choose between the two hunks???

    Can you imagine writing dozens of books in a series about the same core characters? If you find the right combination of setting characters and tone it can be amazing Janet Evanovich has been successful with the Stephanie Plum series creating clever and humorous plots that always bring something fun to the table Occasionally they get repetitive but as a stand alone book each is always great Number 22 Tricky Twenty Two continues the trend with Stephanie visiting a college campus to collect a bond escapee only this time she's found herself dealing with fleas that might have the Bubonic plagueNo this isn't a sci fi series Actually the plague isn't a big part of the mystery until the end but it delivers some comic relief along with Morelli's digestion issues he's as bad as Bob now and Stephanie's car issues never trust a flock of geese The best part of this book is when Stephanie's mom finally gets involved in a fugitive take down The characters we see in this one are typical of all the past but bring us a few steps closer to crazy I really enjoy these books and even though they're mostly fluff they make me laugh so I must finish the seriesI sense a possible turning point coming based on how this one ends There is only so much further Evanovich can take us given Stephanie is unwilling to push forward dating Ranger and unwilling to commit to marriage with Morelli She has to choose 1 of them or neither of them soon Personally I'm a Ranger fan Morelli's become boring Yet I'm open to someone entirely new too I'll pick up the 23rd installment right around New Year's and I'll be current in January when I read 24 and 25 Looking forward to it

    This series has the longest running love triangle in fiction I think when they are old it's going to look something like this Ranger and Morelli think that's Stephanie in the middle They have cataracts Steph died years ago from clogged arteriesMost fans of this series are thinking that there is no way to resolve this triangle unless the author decides to kill one of them off And hey I'm down with that Kill Morelli I'll even help But I don't see it ever happening The author has kept Stephanie's hamster alive for at least 10 years book time I can't see her killing off a human if she hasn't got the heart to kill Rex this is Rex's 21st birthday party They went to the bar laterSo since this triangle is unsolvable the author has to figure out ways to allow Stephanie to carry on a relationship with both guys She usually has Morelli break up with Stephanie for some stupid reason one time it was because she didn't buy bread at the store which he called 'the woman's job' In this book he breaks up with her for no reason And to make it better he does so right after sex while they are naked in bed Typical man Oh I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say that he knew he was breaking up with her before they had sex but figured he'd get that one last freebie in If there is a meme for it it is a common occurrence Fucking menBut the thing is that Morelli breaks up with her and then proceeds to tell her that she can't date Ranger and then he continues to come over call and kiss her Ummmm NO Just noIf some asshat breaks up with you after sex you break his car windshield on the way out the door tell all his friends that you caught him fooling around with a transvestite hooker unfriend him on Facebook and start a Twitter hashtag #MicropenisMorelli Not that I've ever done anything like that That would be wrong And going too far And calling Homeland Security to anonymously report him heading up a terrorist sleeper cell would be really wrongSo I was pissed off at Stephanie for not putting her foot down or up Morelli's ass She just carried on as usual and acted like it was no big deal Bitch pleaseOn the other hand Ranger was magic As usual Go TeamRanger

    I don't care that this book didn't resolve the Stephanie Ranger Joe triangle I just wanted it to be a fast paced mystery with a lot of sarcastic humor and with a few off beat characters thrown in Hot sex with Ranger would be a bonus Well no hot sex with Ranger but the mystery humor and off beat characters were all there A lot of people have come to expect an awful lot from these books Me I just expect to be entertained and I was Another issue that bugs a lot of people is what I call Stephie Time Technology and culture advance but Steph is forever stuck in her early 30's Everyone else is also caught in this time warp too I don't expect this series to end anytime soon and I for one would rejoice if go on forever But I would like to see a resolution before I dieIn Tricky Twenty Two Stephanie is after several bond jumpers and Morelli has decided that Steph is bad for his health and breaks up with her Add to that Ranger needs her to help with a protection detail Steph going through several vehicles and a nutty professor bent on mayhem and you have a typical Stephanie Plum book

    TRICKY TWENTY TWO is another fun easy and fast read that had me laughing out loud uite a few times I have read every other book in this series and I still find myself looking forward to reading the next to see what happens to my favourite bounty hunter and her men These books can be a little bit repetitive and predictable but that doesn't really matter to me I am invested in these characters and this series so I will see it to the end whenever JANET EVANOVICH chooses to do soI liked the endingI am looking forward to reading the next book Turbo Twenty Threehttpwwwtwogirlslostinacouleereadi
