High Five (Stephanie Plum) by Janet Evanovich

Janet Evanovich has finally learned the art of the cliff hanger. I must admit that I cannot wait to learn what happens next. Unfortunately, it took her until book five to figure out that we really need a reason to keep moving through a series. It has taken me a long time to make it to book five.

Having said that, the entire story line for this particular book in the series was really well done. I like that she put more of Stephanie’s family back into the book while maintaining enough of the crime story to keep my interest. The humor in this book was varied and quite a ride. We aren’t talking about highbrow fiction here, folks. This is all about having a great time while watching a crazy woman destroy vehicles and chase around bad guys. Heck, even the annoying grandmother character is starting to grow on me.

I also felt like we got to know Stephanie on a more personal level. We may have even gotten to look inside to find out what she truly is looking for out of life. I look forward to the next book in the series and learning more about what makes her tick as a person.

This series is recommended for anyone that needs something light and fun to read and doesn’t take their literature too seriously.

Stephanie Plum, America’s favorite Jersey-girl bounty hunter, is back in her fifth entertaining hit, High Five . Uncle Fred is missing, and even though Grandma Mazur is convinced aliens abducted him, Stephanie drops everything in order to sniff out her luckless relative. But finding dear ole Fred isn’t all our hero needs to worry about. No, not in the least. Give Janet Evanovich a high five.

Rating: ★★★★☆
