Book Review: Turbo Twenty-Three

(#23 in the Stephanie Plum series)

Good Reads Synopsis:
Larry Virgil skipped out on his latest court date after he was arrested for hijacking an eighteen-wheeler full of premium bourbon. Fortunately for bounty hunter Stephanie Plum, Larry is just stupid enough to attempt almost the exact same crime again. Only this time he flees the scene, leaving behind a freezer truck loaded with Bogart ice cream and a dead body—frozen solid and covered in chocolate and chopped pecans.

As fate would have it, Stephanie’s mentor and occasional employer, Ranger, needs her to go undercover at the Bogart factory to find out who’s putting their employees on ice and sabotaging the business. It’s going to be hard for Stephanie to keep her hands off all that ice cream, and even harder for her to keep her hands off Ranger. It’s also going to be hard to explain to Trenton’s hottest cop, Joe Morelli, why she is spending late nights with Ranger, late nights with Lula and Randy Briggs—who are naked and afraid—and late nights keeping tabs on Grandma Mazur and her new fella. Stephanie Plum has a lot on her plate, but for a girl who claims to have “virtually no marketable skills,” these are the kinds of sweet assignments she does best.

My Thoughts:
I love this series, I've loved it from the very first book. (One for the Money) After more than 20 books, you would think that maybe I'd be getting tired of the series but I'm definitely not. These books aren't particularly deep (no offense Ms. Evanovich!) but they are well-written and a lot of fun. The characters (especially Stephanie and Lula) are what bring me back to the series over and over. Stephanie's relationships with her family, co-workers, and the men in her life are very entertaining and the main plot, while definitely a bit goofy (a murder victim frozen solid, dipped in chocolate and covered in pecans...), still kept me interested. I may or may not have finished this book in one day. ;-)

Final Verdict:
Looking for a fun, easy read? Look no further! In fact, I recommend starting from the beginning of the series. I don't think you'll be disappointed.
