Hard UpFugitive Apprehension Agent Stephanie Plum has a big problem on her hands: Seven-year-old Annie Soder and her mother, Evelyn, have disappeared. Evelyn's estranged husband, Steven, a shady owner of a seedy bar, is not at all happy. Finding a kidnapped child is not an assignment for a bounty hunter. But Evelyn's grandmother lives next door to Stephanie's parents, so Stephanie follows the trail left by Annie and Evelyn-and finds a lot more than she bargained for.Hard RiskSteven Soder is somehow linked with a very scary Eddie Abruzzi. Trenton cop and on-again, off-again fiancé Joe Morelli and Stephanie's mentor and tormentor, Ranger, warn Stephanie about Abruzzi, but it's Abruzzi's eyes and mannerisms that frighten Stephanie most. Stephanie needs Ranger's savvy and expertise, and she's willing to accept his help to find Annie even though it might mean getting too involved with Ranger. Stephanie, Ranger, Lula (who's not going to miss riding with Ranger), and Evelyn's lawyer/Laundromat manager set out to find Annie. The search turns out to be a race among Stephanie's posse, the True Blue Bonds' agent-a Rangerette known as Jeanne Ellen Burrows-and the Abruzzi crew. Plus, there's a killer rabbit on the loose!Hard EightStrap on your helmet and get ready for the ride of your life! Hard Eight. The world of Stephanie Plum has never been wilder.

It's the same general routi...
Originally seen on my book blog!The characters. The characters. The characters. DEVELOPMENT. CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT. Okay, I started this series with book 5, then skipped to 17 and 19 and then went back to the start. When I went back to book number one, I noticed that some characters were so differen...
e mezzo..... lettura piacevole ma senza l'abituale tensione tra i protagonisti..... nonostante tra Steph e Ranger ci sia sesso.... non so bene perché ma non mi ha acchiappato come gli altri..... Nonna Mazur é mitica come sempre!
Kolejny, długo wyczekiwany przeze mnie tom o Steph. Wyczekiwany także z powodu Komandosa. Jakiś czas temu dostałam "cynk", że w tym tomie zmienią się ich relacje. Dlatego tak bardzo nań czekałam. Poczułam się trochę... rozczarowana. Mimo wszystko liczyłam na więcej opisów. Z drugiej strony to, co zr...
I really didn't like this one. It felt like it took me forever to finish it because it was just so boring (I don't really like Ranger that much and don't really want Stephanie to have a relationship with him but even I was cheering for her to sleep with him just to have something spice this up a bit...
