Goodreads description--Stephanie Plum has her sights set on catching a notorious mob boss. If she doesn’t take him down, he may take her out.

New Jersey bounty hunter Stephanie Plum knows better than to mess with family. But when powerful mobster Salvatore “Uncle Sunny” Sunucchi goes on the lam in Trenton, it’s up to Stephanie to find him. Uncle Sunny is charged with murder for running over a guy (twice), and nobody wants to turn him in—not his poker buddies, not his bimbo girlfriend, not his two right-hand men, Shorty and Moe. Even Trenton’s hottest cop, Joe Morelli, has skin in the game, because—just Stephanie’s luck—the godfather is his actual godfather. And while Morelli understands that the law is the law, his old-world grandmother, Bella, is doing everything she can to throw Stephanie off the trail.

It’s not just Uncle Sunny giving Stephanie the run-around. Security specialist Ranger needs her help to solve the bizarre death of a top client’s mother, a woman who happened to play bingo with Stephanie’s Grandma Mazur. Before Stephanie knows it, she’s working side by side with Ranger and Grandma at the senior center, trying to catch a killer on the loose—and the bingo balls are not rolling in their favor.

With bullet holes in her car, henchmen on her tail, and a giraffe named Kevin running wild in the streets of Trenton, Stephanie will have to up her game for the ultimate takedown.

I really hope Stephanie ends up picking one of the guys, and Janet Evanovich wraps this series up pretty soon. What are you waiting on this week? Let me know!

    I've just got nineteen from the library to read. I love these books, but I do think it's more than time that they were wrapped up.

  2. Sounds like fun, enjoy!

  3. Nineteen definitely wasn't my favorite. I'm hoping Twenty is much better. Thanks for stopping by!

  4. I have read this series through to about fifteen then stopped because I burned out on it (happens when I read several from the same series head to head). I should go back and read the rest if Ms. Evanovich is finally going to be ending the series, fingers crossed. I used to love them in the very beginning. Hope you enjoy this one.

  5. I've never read any of these books, maybe I should give them a try. Great pick!

  6. Twenty books and she hasn't chosen between the guys? The gal's got a commitment problem (or she's really, really indecisive)!

    I hope you enjoy it when your read it, and may twenty be the magic number wherein she finally picks the guy.

  7. I've never read anything by this author---and she's so popular. Nice choice.

  8. This series has been going on for way too long! Great pick though!

  9. Cool pick. Thanks for sharing :)

  10. Fifteen or Sixteen was one of the funniest ones I've read. I have no idea if she's actually planning on ending the series any time soon or not, but I think surely it's about time. Thanks for stopping by!

  11. They're easy reads, but I tell you, these books make me laugh out loud. I love that!

  12. Well she's been with both guys in different times and circumstances, but it's not really the typical love triangle kind of thing. She does have some commitment issues, AND she's indecisive. :) HA! But these books are hilarious/laugh out loud funny at times. Love that!

  13. Yes, she's very funny. Thanks for stopping by!

  14. Haha...yeah, it's definitely a long one. Thanks for stopping by!
