Tricky Twenty-Two
Tricky Twenty-Two: A Stephanie Plum Novel | Janet Evanovich
#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER Something big is brewing in Trenton, N.J., and it could blow at any minute. Stephanie Plum might not be the worlds greatest bounty hunter, but she knows when shes being played. Ken Globovic (aka Gobbles), hailed as the Supreme Exalted Zookeeper of the animal house known as Zeta fraternity, has been arrested for beating up the dean of students at Kiltman College. Gobbles has missed his court date and gone into hiding. People have seen him on campus, but no one will talk. Things just arent adding up, and Stephanie cant shake the feeling that something funny is going on at the collegeand its not just Zeta fraternity pranks. As much as people love Gobbles, they hate Doug Linken. When Linken is gunned down in his backyard its good riddance, and the list of possible murder suspects is long. The only people who care about finding Linkens killer are Trenton cop Joe Morelli, who has been assigned the case, security expert Ranger, who was hired to protect Linken, and Stephanie, who has her eye on a cash prize and hopefully has some tricks up her sleeve.From the Hardcover edition.

P.S. Does anyone else love these?

Super fun book. I read it over one shift at work. We were slow at work and I was really enjoying the book. I have read all the previous books in the series. It is comforting to be drawn back into this world. There is a murder mystery that is pretty interesting. Lots of Ranger. I am definitely Team Ranger. A great addition to the series.

SleepyDragon I read the first two, but then was side tracked with other stuff and never went back for the third. Didn't realize there were so many! 11mo
Bookzombie Team Ranger all the way! @NeesyBeth The 25th one came out last month. 🙂 11mo

A little late but here are my reading stats for November. I had a pretty productive reading month. I was more motivated to read. Tricky Twenty Two was charming, funny and a pleasure to read.

A fun quick read. There is something to be said for characters who make you laugh! For those times when you don't want to think about a story, this is good fluff to be entertained.

I wasn't sure if I wanted to continue this series but give me a frat house, dead bodies, fleas, bubonic plague, Joe, Ranger and a car explosion and I'm in!
"Babe."
I was laughing out loud with Stephanie Plum's crazy escapades. Lula is the best side kick ever..."Someone give me emergency fries!" Ha!
Loved the familiar ride.

Once again I am left laughing at how much of a "Murphy" that Stephanie is just like me. I really enjoyed the plot of this book though I wanted to punch Morelli in the face just as bad as she did. This is an excellent light read with a good amount of humor.

I'm over the Morelli-Ranger #lovetriangle and would love to see Stephanie meet someone new. Morelli has had more than enough time to accept Stephanie the way she is & Ranger is never going to commit. I still read every one of these as soon as I can get them from the library but Evanovich's been kind of phoning it in for most of the books past 15 or 16.

Suzze I've been on the hold list for this ever since it came out. But I haven't heard one good review of it. Time to take my name off the list. 3y
ReadingSusan Yes I agree. I am tired of the triangle. It's the same in every book. 3y
Kris10 Yes! I was over the love triangle by book 7 and stopped there. I can't imagine the frustration of 22. 3y
lamaman2boys They were the first audiobooks I listened to, and I love them but I agree! 3y
melrailey I agree. I wish she would choose (and that Ranger would commit😘) but the audiobooks are such good fun I have to listen every time. 3y

Always can count on Stephanie Plum for a quick, enjoyable read!! Just what I needed for book 8 of the #24in48 #readathon ... I'm at hour 21 & hoping my next read will keep me engaged for the next 3 hours.

AmandaL Great job! 3y

My full take at: http://wp.me/p3z9AH-2CC
Here, the stakes with Joe are bigger than usual. What Stephanie uncovers is bigger & more serious than usual. Not that serial killers and mafia bosses are the stuff of sitcoms, but we've seen them used in light ways pretty often lately. In the end, this is a better than average Stephanie Plum adventure w/enough of the old reliable bits & some pretty good character moments. A good one for new fans or old.

Book 3 of #biblioweekend was a palate cleanser after The Underground Railroad last night. I hadn't read a Stephanie Plum in forever, but I knew exactly what I was going to get. Things seem to be getting a little stale--Lula and Grandma Mazur were nowhere near as funny as I remember them being in the early books.

Also, #somethingforsept #readandeat I figured a plain peanut butter sandwich was the perfect lunch to eat while reading Stephanie Plum.

I love the Stephanie Plum series but I have read any of them in awhile because they seemed a little outdated with pagers and few technology references. In this book, Stephanie is updated with a cell phone, Uber references and google searches. Same funny episodes as I remember from the other books. This was a nice light read with a few giggles.

#augustphotochallenge day 28. My feel-good books are this series. They are light-hearted, hilarious, and have great characters who are so much fun to come back to (special love for Lula and Grandma Mazur). Plus, I share these with my Mom, reading the latest book to her with various voices and accents, which is nice bonding time for us. 😊

LeeRHarry Love these too - Lula makes me laugh out loud!!! 😆 3y
MrBook I have 3 or 4 of these 😊👍🏻. 3y
megt Sometimes I wish Grandma Mazur would adopt me. She's a riot! 3y

BethFishReads I wish I had liked these more. I stopped after book 3 but *everyone else * loves them 3y
Hooked_on_books @BethFishReads Honestly it's almost the same story over and over. I just love the characters. If you don't love the characters, the series would get old fast. 3y
Dragon Grandma and Ranger are my faves 3y

Sometimes when you're feeling a book slump, it's good to visit an old friend. It's been too long since I've laughed at/with Stephanie Plum!

Summer reading. I've always thought a young Julia Roberts ( Mystic Pizza era) would make a perfect Stephanie Plum. #fourthbookofsummer

When your hunky heartthrob has a colonoscopy, it might be time to retire the series.

Riveted_Reader_Melissa Hahahaha! I think I stopped at book 3 when I read an interview where she basically said if it's not broke don't fix it. So I'm guessing nope, no end in sight, and no HEA. Is she still bouncing back and forth between the same 2? If so Stephanie really needs to meet someone new! ;) 3y
[DELETED] 3558467437 😂😂😂 3y
Carol One for the Money was one of the funniest books I had read up until that point. And the series was fun for several books but once she was going back and forth between Joe & Ranger I was out. So the colonoscopy doesn't truly surprise me! 3y
Soscha Shouldn't the real story at this point be Rex, the great amaranthine hamster that's managed to defy all limits of time and nature? 3y
BookishFeminist LOL my goodness, I read up to #14 and keep meaning to get back to it as a good between difficult books palate cleanser. But a colonoscopy? Lordy 3y

If you want a quick read that will have you laughing, read any of the Stephanie Plum novels! Lula and Grandma Mazur are absolutely hilarious characters. This is well worth the read, and might make you "itchy" to read a few more.

I LOVE the Stephanie Plum series, but 22 just wasn't as good as the rest. I still belly-laughed at Lula the 'ho & Grandma Mazur, but the suspense was lacking. And not enough Morelli/Ranger!
