Sassy and a bit Smartassy – Book Review for Top Secret Twenty One

Top Secret Twenty-One (Stephanie Plum, #21)

Top Secret Twenty-One (Stephanie Plum, #21)Top Secret Twenty-One by Janet Evanovich

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The thing about over the top story-lines and characters is that sometimes it keeps my interest so much that I can’t put the book down. In this case, I was not able to turn off the audio-book! Stephanie Plum is a sassy, smartass bounty hunter that has no filter. Seriously! She doesn’t have one! This story had me bursting out in laughter, and then whispering “Oh my goodness, she didn’t just say this” or “she didn’t just do that!” And don’t even get me started on LuLu! I know a few people like her. Over all this story is good. I like the fact that I was able to pick it up and not have to read the other 20 books in the series to figure out what was going on. If you like over the top, wild, sassy, smartassy characters then this is the book for you! Happy reading my friends.

Book Summary:

Catch a professional assassin: top priority. Find a failure-to-appear and collect big bucks: top score. How she’ll pull it all off: top secret.

Trenton, New Jersey’s favorite used-car dealer, Jimmy Poletti, was caught selling a lot more than used cars out of his dealerships. Now he’s out on bail and has missed his date in court, and bounty hunter Stephanie Plum is looking to bring him in. Leads are quickly turning into dead ends, and all too frequently into dead bodies. Even Joe Morelli, the city’s hottest cop, is struggling to find a clue to the suspected killer’s whereabouts. These are desperate times, and they call for desperate measures. So Stephanie is going to have to do something she really doesn’t want to do: protect former hospital security guard and general pain in her behind Randy Briggs. Briggs was picking up quick cash as Poletti’s bookkeeper and knows all his boss’s dirty secrets. Now Briggs is next on Poletti’s list of people to put six feet under.

To top things off, Ranger—resident security expert and Stephanie’s greatest temptation—has been the target of an assassination plot. He’s dodged the bullet this time, but if Ranger wants to survive the next attempt on his life, he’ll have to enlist Stephanie’s help and reveal a bit more of his mysterious past.

Death threats, highly trained assassins, highly untrained assassins, and Stark Street being overrun by a pack of feral Chihuahuas are all in a day’s work for Stephanie Plum. The real challenge is dealing with her Grandma Mazur’s wild bucket list. A boob job and getting revenge on Joe Morelli’s Grandma Bella can barely hold a candle to what’s number one on the list—but that’s top secret.
