Publisher Comments:

Stephanie Plum's got rent to pay, people shooting at her, and psychos wanting her dead every day of the week (much to the dismay of her mother, her family, the men in her life, the guy who slices meat at the deli...oh, the list goes on). An ordinary person would cave under the pressure. But hey, she's from Jersey. Stephanie Plum may not be the best bounty hunter in beautiful downtown Trenton, but she's pretty darn good at turning bad situations her way...and she always gets her man.

In To the Nines, her cousin Vinnie (who's also her boss) has posted bail on Samuel Singh, an illegal immigrant. When the elusive Mr. Singh goes missing, Stephanie is on the case. But what she uncovers is far more sinister than anyone imagines and leads to a group of killers who give new meaning to the word hunter. In a race against time that takes her from the Jersey Turnpike to the Vegas Strip, Stephanie Plum is on the chase of her life. The unforgettable characters, nonstop action, high-stakes suspense, and sheer entertainment of To the Nines define Janet Evanovich as unique among today's writers.

Review:

"An awkward plot that takes Plum to Vegas is the weakest course in this meal. Yet...Stephanie Plum...just happens to have more laughs, more sizzling sexual tension, and more nonstop, zany adventure than anybody else around." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"The plot is — as usual — a shambles, but the people and their dialogue are as sharp and funny as ever. Though no high point in Stephanie's saga, this installment...won't disappoint her fans either." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"Evanovich, and Stephanie, are at the top of their form here: laugh-out loud moments jostle with sticky, visceral terror....Ever smarter, funnier, sexier, scarier." GraceAnne DeCandido, Booklist (Starred Review)

TO THE NINES is another mystery adventure in the fast-paced life of Stephanie Plum, Bounty Hunter. In this story, Stephanie is living with the love of her life, Joe Morelli, but still flirting with the mysterious Ranger. Stephanie can't quite make the marriage commitment yet, but does not want to give up Morelli.
Stephanie and her co-workers, Lula and Connie take a trip to Las Vegas where they are seeking Samuel Singh, an Indian man who is in violation of his bond. They meet Elvis impersonators one evening and the next day Connie shows up with a picture of herself married to one, but she can't even remember the ceremony. Lula is on a protein diet and carries pork chops and bacon around in her purse. Dogs follow her everywhere. These Stephanie Plum stories are completely outrageous and funny.

The dark side of the book is the mystery man who sends Stephanie flowers as he constantly threatens to kill her. As usual, Stephanie's life is one wild and crazy ride.

Stephanie Plum is one of my heroes. She has such a cute way about her; loves her job, doesn't really care how she looks most of the time, has a personality and looks that attract the men, and is not wonder woman! Janet Evanovich, author of "To the Nines" has created characters that have me laughing and chuckling to myself. They are so real that I can see them in my mind. I have an image of Lula, the big size ex-ho, turned bonds-woman; Ranger, the ex-Special Forces turned bond enforcement; grandma, the woman who likes wigs and is as crazy as Stephanie-wonder whom Stephanie takes after; and Morelli, the cop, Stephanie's lover. Janet Evanovich has such a wonderful imagination- I want to meet that woman.

Stephanie is in trouble again. She is working with Ranger to find Samuel Singh, a missing computer nerd who is out on bail. Vinnie, Stephanie's boss will lose money if Mr. Singh is not found. Stephanie does all the right things, she looks in all the right places, asks all the right questions, and of course, she is a marked woman. Trouble seems to find her, she is left flowers with a devious message, shot at with a dart, email messages of a dark nature left on her computer. This mystery takes her to Las Vegas and has one of the funniest scenes with Lula I have read. Lula may just be taking some of the best scenes from Stephanie- Stephanie should talk to the author about what is going on:-)
Stephanie's family seems to take front page in this mystery. Her sister Valerie, is pregnant, large as a house and eating as much as she can. He boyfriend wants to marry her, but she isn't quite ready, and Valerie's two children are all living with Stephanie's mom and dad. No one is happy about this, and the house is getting too small, especially since Grand mom lives there also. What a mess.

This novel is one of the better ones. Many readers of Janet Evanovich, complain that her books tend to follow the same format-well, they do, but each one is different and so enjoyable. Ms. Evanovich lives near my hometown- I have to meet this woman who has brought me so much enjoyment, A mystery novel that brings humor to the forefront- what more could one ask? prisrob
