The Barnes & Noble Review Four to Score, Janet Evanovich's aptly titled fourth novel in her popular Stephanie Plum series, is another hilarious, action-filled mystery featuring the quirky Jersey-girl heroine with a brazen attitude and a fashion sense that calls for spandex biking shorts and a .38. Evanovich knows how to build suspenseful but laugh-out-loud scenes that are witty, gritty, and deliciously wry. Stephanie is a delightful protagonist who is just as appealing when she loses her cool as when she keeps it, dealing with bizarre people and circumstances that range from her unbalanced, man-hungry grandmother to a Mafia funeral to a seven-foot-tall (in heels) transvestite guitarist.

Adding to Stephanie's woes is her longtime rival,

I felt that the main bounty hunter storyline of this book was a bit boring. I liked the storyline about Sally Sweet, and Stephanie moving in with Morelli to be the more interesting parts of the story. Lula is really starting to grow on me and is quickly becoming a favorite character while I still do...
