Fearless Fourteen, by Janet Evanovich
Stephanie Plum is back with her crazy assortment of cohorts. Ranger needs Stephanie for a bodyguard gig and Morelli needs her for mother duty. Ranger’s job introduces her to an aging singer way past her prime and the singer’s stalker who follows Stephanie home. Morelli is stuck with Zook, who may or may not be his son and needs Stephanie’s help until they can find his mother. Everyone is town thinks that 9 million dollars is buried at Morelli’s house and the town crazies (including Grandma Mazur) show up with a shovel. Lula proposes to herself and Tank faints, while Morelli might mention marriage to Stephanie.
I have been disappointed with the series for more than a few books now, but this book made me happy to have Stephanie back. It was good to see some character growth. Although I missed Ranger and the chemistry between them I thought Stephanie’s relationship with Morelli was sweet and sexy. And I loved the storyline of Lula and Tank’s engagement, priceless. This book was the best one in awhile and I’m looking forward to the next one.
