Four to Score by Janet Evanovich
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
In the most satisfying Plum adventure yet, lingerie buyer-turned-bounty-hunter Stephanie Plum is on the trail of a missing bail jumper and some funny money.
Stephanie is at her usual car-wrecking best here, trying to juggle the demands of her dangerous job and her unresolved love life. She's getting more comfortable with skip tracing, but still keeps her gun unloaded in the cookie jar.
Morelli, Mr. Hot and Cold, is hot again and has Stephanie in knots trying to decide what she really wants from him. Her newest sidekick is a 6'4", puzzle-solving drag queen named Sally Sweet, who fits in nicely with the former hooker Lula and Grandma Mazur (aka Dirty Harry). There's also the return of her home-wrecking nemesis, Joyce Barnhardt, who has never been more inconvenient.
