Larry Virgil skipped out on his latest court date after he was arrested for hijacking an eighteen-wheeler full of premium bourbon. Fortunately for bounty hunter Stephanie Plum, Larry is just stupid enough to attempt almost the exact same crime again. Only this time he flees the scene, leaving behind a freezer truck loaded with Bogart ice cream and a dead body—frozen solid and covered in chocolate and chopped pecans.
As fate would have it, Stephanie’s mentor and occasional employer, Ranger, needs her to go undercover at the Bogart factory to find out who’s putting their employees on ice and sabotaging the business. It’s going to be hard for Stephanie to keep her hands off all that ice cream, and even harder for her to keep her hands off Ranger. It’s also going to be hard to explain to Trenton’s hottest cop, Joe Morelli, why she is spending late nights with Ranger, late nights with Lula and Randy Briggs—who are naked and afraid—and late nights keeping tabs on Grandma Mazur and her new fella. Stephanie Plum has a lot on her plate, but for a girl who claims to have “virtually no marketable skills,” these are the kinds of sweet assignments she does best.
Genre: Romantic Suspense, Romantic Comedy, Mystery
Part of a Series: Yes Book 23 of the Stephanie Plum series
Steam Level: Fade to Black, sexualized humor
Ice Cream Killers, the Magic Kingdom, killer clowns, and possibly stolen new cars create an action-packed, yet familiar Stephanie Plum novel. Book 22 seemed to get us closer to a Morelli/Ranger resolution but Turbo Twenty-Three moves back a bit but is still moving forward at a snail’s pace for these relationships. Grandma Mazur continues to be one of my favorite characters in this series. While sometimes I get annoyed with this series, i still love the crazy. Turbo Twenty-Three is a quick listen (only about 6 hours) and a fun escape from the day-to-day monotony.
