This is yet another Stephanie Plum novel.

Partial Comments From the Cover: Dom Rizzi robbed a bank, stashed the money, and did the time. His family couldn’t be more proud. He always was the smart one. Joe Morelli, Dom Rizzi, and Dom’s sister, Loretta, are cousins. Morelli is a cop, Rizzi robs banks, and Loretta is a single mother waiting tables at the firehouse. The all-American family. Less than a week after Dom’s release from prison, Joe Morelli has shadowy figures breaking into his house and dying in his basement. He’s getting threatening messages, Loretta is kidnapped, and Dom is missing. How will Stephanie Plum solve this one – and WHO will help her?

My comments: I read these books because they remind me of my home, New Jersey. The setting is Trenton, NJ. The characters are likeable and humorous. They are over the top in my comfort zone as far as language, graphic sex, and adultery; so I try to fast forward through those parts. There are a couple of story lines. Everything is resolved in the end. I love Grandma Mazur who is Stephanie’s grandma and in this story she gets involved with a teenage character and is seriously playing video games. She is NOT your typical older lady! I just wish Stephanie would choose a man and settle down. She can’t choose between two – Ranger and Morelli. I think I’m routing for Morelli – he’s just a little bit more traditional and settled (although some might argue with me about that).

This is the fourteenth book in the series, and I think it would be best to put it to rest.

    I agree the series has ran its course (and maybe then some). At this point, I’m sick of Morelli. He may have a house and a dog, but I can’t root or a guy who still refers to women as “sluts”. I’m not one to nitpick graphic language, but that one’s a dealbreaker for me.

    Yes, they are definitely getting routine but I still enjoyed this one. Not as much ‘laugh out loud’ in the last few so am hoping she’ll find something to freshen up the next one.
