Review: Hot Six (Stephanie Plum #6) by Janet Evanovich

My favorite of the series so far! Janet Evanovich is on FIRE.

The good news is we find out who showed up at Stephanie's apartment at the end of High Five. The bad news is, there is still a gray area of which man she wants.

"...two of the men on my list of desirables actually desire me back. The problems being that they both sort of scare the hell out of me."

Morelli and Stephanie join forces to find out who killed Homer Ramos, the son of an international black-market guns dealer, Alexander Ramos (a man who has a habit of jumping into Stephanie's car). Security cameras caught one man leaving the building before it went up in flames - Ranger. Now he is the hunted instead of the hunter. But, with Ranger as the FTA, Stephanie is thrown off her game. Can she find a man who has no known address? Will her nemesis, Joyce, find him first? If Stephanie finds him, who will end up handcuffed? Will she have the muscle and the nerve to actually turn him in?

Stephanie also has a new roommate, Grandma Mazur, who not only snores and keeps Stephanie from sleeping, she's also keeping Stephanie and Morelli from other nighttime activities.

Between getting her Honda Civic torched (nothing happens to Big Blue!) and getting conned into babysitting Bob, a Labrador Retriever whose owner doesn't want him back, Stephanie Plum is hysterical in this fast-paced, fun, exciting, and, of course, hot, sixth book.

There were times that I was cracking up so hard I could barely continue reading. How does Janet Evanovich keep coming up with this stuff?

Interestingly, at the end of my notes for this book (which I read almost two weeks ago), I wrote, "why hasn't this been made into a TV series yet?" Let's face it, I'd rather read a Stephanie Plum novel than waste an hour of my life watching garbage like Private Practice.

Sooner than I had hoped, I answered my own question.

Regardless of the movie/tv news, I already have Seven Up on my nightstand ready to go. This series is pure entertainment!

I love the Stephanie Plum books! think I would much rather see the books as a TV series than a movie, I'm thinking an HBO or Showtime show.

Right now I'm reading book 13 but I'm kind of in a rut. I think I'm going to take a break from the series and come back to it later!

Ashley, I think an HBO series would be PERFECT. Usually, I read Stephanie Plum when I take a break between my heavier reading. This week, I read Hot Six and Seven Up back-to-back, and I didn't enjoy it as much. There has to be a strategy to reading this series to keep it fun and light. I'm taking a break before I read Hard Eight. (I say that now...)

this is one of those series I should love, but just can't get into. I've read a couple and they just haven't grabbed me.

A tv series would be fun, I agree. Though she'd have to make a choice eventually. Not sure how much longer Stephanie can go on waffling between her men.
