Audiobook Review: Tricky Twenty-Two by Janet Evanovich
Stephanie Plum might not be the world’s greatest bounty hunter, but she knows when she’s 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 aren’t adding up, and Stephanie can’t shake the feeling that something funny is going on at the college—and it’s not just Zeta fraternity pranks.
As much as people love Gobbles, they hate Doug Linken. When Linken is gunned down in his backyard it’s good riddance, and the list of possible murder suspects is long. The only people who care about finding Linken’s 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.
Genre: Romantic Suspense, Romantic Comedy, Mystery, Thriller
Part of a Series: Yes Book 22 of the Stephanie Plum series
Steam Level: Some sexualized humor, fade to black
For several books this series has been stuck in a rut in Stephanie Plum’s Morelli/Ranger saga. There has been little movements with less on again/off again, bouncing between the two when the off again was occurring with the last several books. I believe that there are only three books left in this series and it feels like Tricky Twenty-Two moved that aspect of this series forward some, which is good. I continue to enjoy Lula and her overreactions, Stephanie’s surprise skills, Grandma Mazur’s shenanigans, Ranger’s “Babe” and Morelli’s vein/heartburn. Stephanie’s mom stole the show and several cars kicked the bucket. Overall an awesome addition (and possible turning point) to this series.
