Notorious Nineteen by Janet Evanovich

Customers at my library are always raving about Lorelei King's excellent reading of Janet Evanovich's books, so I checked the audio out from the digital catalog and gave this one a listen. Lorelei does a great job, really bringing the characters to life, and I found myself laughing out loud as I drove around town listening to yet another silly Stephanie mystery.

This time around Stephanie is looking for a skip who mysteriously disappeared straight from the hospital after an emergency appendectomy. He has been accused of embezzling an enormous amount of money from an assisted living facility, so Grandma Mazur enthusiastic goes under cover to find out what information she can, and Stephanie ends up working with Morelli to figure out where the man - and the money - have gone. Meanwhile someone is picking off former army buddies of Ranger's, and Stephanie finds herself doing bodyguard detail for Ranger, which turns out to be way more dangerous than she anticipated.

It's always a good day when a new Stephanie Plum novel is published, and I enjoyed my virtual trip to New Jersey  to catch up on characters who truly feel like friends. It was nice to see that Stephanie has actually gained some skills and expertise in her bounty-hunting profession through the course of the books, and I look forward to her next adventure.
