"Something big is brewing in Trenton, N.J., and it could blow at any minute. Stephanie Plum might not be the world's greatest bounty hunter, but she knows when she's being played. Ken Globovic (aka Gobbles), hailed as the Supreme Exalted Zookeeper of the animal house known as Zeta fraternity, has been arrested for beating up the dean of students at Kiltman College. Gobbles has missed his court date and gone into hiding. People have seen him on campus, but no one will talk. Things just aren't adding up, and Stephanie can't shake the feeling that something funny is going on at the college--and it's not just Zeta fraternity pranks. As much as people love Gobbles, they hate Doug Linken. When Linken is gunned down in his backyard it's good riddance, and 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 sleeve"-- Provided by publisher.

It's been awhile since I've read a Stephanie Plum adventure. I'm glad I did. I was in need of some comic relief.
I enjoyed this episode. It was fun, quirky and a true romp.
Typical Stephanie Plum, with a good amount of Grandma Mazur. And Lula. A fun mix of capers.

An average Plum outing with a great Mom scene
Men are stressing Stephanie out...a burglar who was covered in bacon grease, a frat boy who assaulted a Dean, Morelli who broke up with her, a businessman who hired Rangeman to protect him and his wife, and a guy who tortures women. And one of them has given her a pimple on her chin the size of Mount Everest
For once, there is a decent mystery about what's happening at the fraternity and how everything else is tied to it. Grandma and Lulu are kind of fun, as is a small sub-story about catfishing. But a scene near the end with Mom is absolute gold.
The off-again relationship stuff with Morelli is nearing the stupid point, particularly as nothing changes between them, and the simple answer to the frat mystery gets messed up with something out of a Tom Clancy novel.
I received no compensation, not even a free copy, in exchange for this review. I am not personal friends with the author, nor do I follow her on social media.

Loved the LOL ending. Grandma Mazur is one of my favorite characters in this series, and she gets a lot of ink in this book. I'm wondering whether the author is setting Stephanie up to shift more into detective/private investigation work than bounty hunting.

Quick read and delightful escape.

If you like the other Stephanie Plum books, then you will like this one too because it is just like all the others. I still love the characters and this book was a pleasant, fun read. Nothing has really changed. Morelli, Ranger, Grandma Mazur, Lula are all up to their usual stuff. The plot in this one was a little meh, but I read this series for the characters, not the plot. It would be nice to have a bit of resolution with the Stephanie/Morelli/Ranger triangle because it is getting too repetitive.

Good read!

Not funny, but a enough good story. Not-a-spoiler-alert: Morelli doesn't marry Stephanie and neither does Ranger. Stephanie still thin despite her 3500 calories per day diet. Evanovich appears to have spent more time thinking up stupid names than on developing the characters or plot. Ranger's dialog has been reduced to a series of "Babe" sort of like Groot's meaningful phrase "I am Groot" repeated ad infinitum.

the best one, with the complete storyline.

It's hard to tell with series - are they getting more formulaic or are the characters and setting just becoming too familiar to the reader? Anyway, this was an enjoyable, quick read; I'm still enough of a fan to be reading them as they come out now, even if I do feel that they're not of the same quality the first ones were.

It was the usual. I still love catching up with Miss Plum & her cohorts. I do it, not expecting deep & meaningful & expecting only light as air. That's what I get. If I have a complaint it's the cars being wrecked. A bit over that. I can still have a laugh out loud with her. I've got a few more left in me.
