In Eleven on Top, Stephanie Plum has decided to give up on being a bounty hunter. She’s tired of things blowing up around her. After quitting her job for her cousin Vinnie, she gets and loses three jobs in a series of hilarious, unfortunate mishaps: the button factory, the dry cleaners, Cluck in a Bucket.
She then starts working doing desk research for Rangeman Industries, Ranger’s security company, a nice quiet job – except for the gorgeous boss who is continually giving her hot flashes. Her life should be nice and quiet, but in spite of the fact that she’s not tracking down any bad guys, someone is trying to kill her. She still can’t fully commit to Morelli, even though he confesses to being in love with her. Her mom is hitting the sauce and her sister is completely neurotic about her upcoming wedding, at which Stephanie is supposed to play a cello solo and wear an eggplant-colored bridesmaid dress.
Oh, and she doesn’t play the cello.
Once again, Janet Evanovich has written a laugh-out-loud funny story in the Stephanie Plum series. I don’t know how Stephanie manages to get herself into so many scrapes, but I’m glad she does. This book was fast-paced and hilarious. As long as Evanovich keeps writing like this, I’ll keep reading – or listening to – Stephanie’s adventures.
