Janet Evanovich - Seven Up


Publisher: St. Martin Press

ISBN: 978-0312980140

My rating: 3.5/5


The #1 bestselling , nationwide phenomenon continues with Janet Evanovich's most explosive Stephanie Plum thriller yet -- so get ready for the ride of your life!

Semi-retired mob guy, Eddie DeChooch, is caught trafficking contraband cigarettes through Trenton, New Jersey. When DeChooch fails to show for a court appearance, bond enforcement agent Stephanie Plum is assigned the task of finding DeChooch and dragging his decrepit ass back to jail. Not such an easy job, it turns out, since DeChooch has learned a lot of tricks over the years and isn't afraid to use his gun. He's already shot Loretta Ricci and left her for worm food in his shed. He wouldn't mind shooting Stephanie next.
Especially since Steph has discovered that likeable losers (and former high school classmates) Mooner and Dougie have inadvertently become involved with DeChooch. They've gotten sucked into an operation which is much more than simple cigarette smuggling and holds risks far greater than anyone could have imagined.
When Dougie disappears, Steph goes into search mode. When Mooner disappears, she calls in the heavy artillery and asks master bounty hunter Ranger for help. His price for the job? One night with Stephanie, dusk to dawn. Not information she'd want to share with her some-time live in roommate, vice cop Joe Morelli.
A typical dilemma in the world of Plum.
And on the homefront, Stephanie's "perfect" sister Valerie has decided to move back to Trenton, bringing her two kids from hell. Grandma Mazur is asking questions about being a lesbian, and Bob, the bulimic dog, is eating everything in sight -- including the furniture.
Mud wrestling, motorcycles, fast cars, fast food, and fast men. It's SEVEN UP. Absolutely Janet Evanovich at her very best.  (http://www.evanovich.com/)


My thougths

Whoohoo – here comes “Seven up”!

Janet Evanovich doesn’t disappoint our expectations.

Steph is after Eddie DeChooch, a seventy something years old retired criminal who is more difficult to apprehend than expected not to mention he shoots at her every time she comes close. When Grandma Mazur gets kidnapped, though, Steph turns to Ranger, her mentor, for help – but is she really willing to accept his price? Anything else that can happen to Steph? Yes! Her “perfect” sister Valerie has left her husband and moves in with her parents - including her two daughters. There’s also Mooner and Dougie who go missing AND Steph finds herself engaged to Morelli – or is she?

Not quite as good as the previous books, but still a great Ending - so go and get it! You won't regret it.
