Waiting on Notorious Nineteen

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

I've gone about this series all wrong. Having listened to books 14-17 on audio and having read the first one in paperback form AFTER that. I still need to listen to book 18. BUT knowing I will, I'm still excited and anticipating the release of #19. Check it out.

Notorious Nineteen (Stephanie Plum, # 19)

By: Janet Evanovich

Expected Publication: November 20th 2012 Bantam

320 pages

( Goodreads | Amazon )

Finally!!! A description has been posted for this one. But I only saw it on Amazon...so here it is.

Amazon description--New Jersey bounty hunter Stephanie Plum is certain of three truths: People don’t just vanish into thin air. Never anger old people. And don’t do what Tiki tells you to do.

After a slow summer of chasing low-level skips for her cousin Vinnie’s bail bonds agency, Stephanie Plum finally lands an assignment that could put her checkbook back in the black. Geoffrey Cubbin, facing trial for embezzling millions from Trenton’s premier assisted-living facility, has mysteriously vanished from the hospital after an emergency appendectomy. Now it’s on Stephanie to track down the con man. The problem is, Cubbin has disappeared without a trace, a witness, or his money-hungry wife. Rumors are stirring that he must have had help with the daring escape . . . or that maybe he never made it out of his room alive. Since the hospital staff’s lips seem to be tighter than the security, and it’s hard for Stephanie to blend in to assisted living, Stephanie’s Grandma Mazur goes in undercover. But when a second felon goes missing from the same hospital, Plum is forced into working side by side with Trenton’s hottest cop, Joe Morelli, in order to crack the case.

The real problem is, no Cubbin also means no way to pay the rent. Desperate for money—or maybe just desperate—Plum accepts a secondary job guarding her secretive and mouthwatering mentor Ranger from a deadly special-forces adversary. While Stephanie is notorious for finding trouble, she may have found a little more than she bargained for this time around. Then again—a little food poisoning, some threatening notes, and a bridesmaid’s dress with an excess of taffeta never killed anyone . . . or did it? If Stephanie Plum wants to bring in a paycheck , she’ll have to remember: no guts, no glory. . . .

That's what I'm waiting on this week! What about you guy? What are you anxiously awaiting? Let me know!

    1. If you're looking for something quick, entertaining, and funny then the Stephanie Plum series is a good option. 17 was one of the funniest ones I've read. 15 was pretty funny too.

      Thanks a million for the follow! And thanks for stopping by and commenting!
