Grandma Mazur has decided to get married again -- this time to a local gangster named Jimmy Rosolli. If Stephanie has her doubts about this marriage, she doesn't have to worry for long, because the groom drops dead of a heart attack 45 minutes after saying, "I do." A sad day for Grandma Mazur turns into something far more dangerous when Jimmy's former "business partners" are convinced that his new widow is keeping the keys to a financial windfall all to herself. But the one thing these wise guys didn't count on was the widow's bounty hunter granddaughter, who'll do anything to save her.

Laugh-out-loud hilarious; snicker worthy in places, and a couple spots to cringe, a couple more to guffaw. I had to read passages aloud to my husband; I took a photo of one page and emailed it to a friend. While it held a touch of hope that Stephanie might grow up, I did miss her saying "It's not my fault." But since everything that happens is Grandma Mazur's fault, the omission of Stephanie's signature wail was okay.
A wonderful, "I couldn't put it down" romp that was very satisfying.

Is it possible to give something a zero star rating? This book deserves that many. I’m trying not to spoil anything, but there is a search for something held by a man who had something in common with his friends. The group nickname is used so often, it moves from foreshadowing to X-marks the spot denouement. The pacing is awful: it reads like any day of the week precedes/follows any other day. And this is pure personal jealousy, but PICK a man already. In this book, Stephanie tired of her lifestyle; seems fitting, since I’m tired of these books. Pick villains, “wacky” hijinks, and car-tastrophes from three/four/five previous books, throw them in a blender, and ta-da! You have the structure of this book.
There are now more in this series than there are Kinsey Milhone novels. Quantity certainly doesn’t add quality.

These books are laugh out loud funny although by the time you finish you wonder why you bothered.

The characters had more substance and less 'same old-same old' interchangeable dialog/reactions which is welcome since everything was becoming stagnant (in fact Stephanie talked and thought about it and made some changes to move forward) in this series. I had some problems keeping all the new key characters straight, flipping back to find the connection or detail. The recurring characters had more meaningful dialog and showed more depth of character than usual. Focus on Grandma, retired mob, family, Joe and Ranger and of course Stephanie--this time she accidentally blows up her own car and she got a couple of skips the first time despite the potential for disaster (don't worry, one skip kept getting away). This series is still fun and has belly-chuckle moments. Looks like #27 won't have a number in the title and may be a new direction for Stephanie Plum.

My parents recently got me hooked me on this series. I am afraid this is not the best Stephanie Plum book in the series. It has a lot of filler and is just part one of a multi-volume story ark.

Well, I inhaled this book down in 3 days. Usually it takes me more. Sadly, this isn't her best book. But Stephanie Plum is something I will read ANYTIME!

Janet Evanovich has finally jumped the shark with her Stephanie Plum series. I could not get past the pages in Chapter 1 where she makes jokes about bestiality and rape. How did this book get past her editor?! I will no longer read her books.
