I read on a bathroom stall door once that Vinnie humps like a ferret. I'm not sure what that means, but it seems reasonable since Vinnie looks like a ferret. His ruby pinky ring reminded me of treasures found in Seaside Park arcade claw-machines.

Home Janet Evanovich Seven U. We were waiting for you in the hall, but there was a lady who kept opening her door and looking at us. It made us uncomfortable.

Home Janet Evanovich Seven Up. Home. Part of Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich. I think she was interested in us, if you know what I mean. And we don't do anything funny like that. We all walked back and huddled again. Some trucks pulled up with heavy rescue equipment and started to work on the Cadillac. They had a jaws of life standing by, but they were using acetylene torches to cut the car away from the train. It was getting dark, and portable spots had been brought to light the scene, giving it an eerie, movie-lot feel. We drove in silence to Mary Maggie's condo building, parked one row over from her Porsche, and took the elevator to the seventh floor. Mary Maggie answered on the second knock. Her breath caught when she saw us and she took a step backward. Ordinarily this reaction might be construed as a sign of fear or guilt. In this case it was the normal reaction women have when confronted with Ranger. Where do you find these people?

Part of Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich. Maybe we should go talk to Estelle Colucci, I said to Lula. I'm ready to roll, Lula said. BENNY AND ESTELLE Colucci live in a nicely maintained duplex in the Burg. For that matter, just about every house in the Burg is nicely maintained. It's mandatory for survival. Where do you find these people? We stopped by your house, I said to Benny. That's because I'm here.

Seven Up. The killer is a little too close to home. Janet Evanovich, PO Box 2829, Naples, FL 34106. What Stephanie Plum loves about being a bounty hunter: it annoys her mother and she can wear jeans to work. Janet’s E-news and e-mails.

They just keep getting funnier. And in this one, Stephanie gets a marriage proposal from Joe.

Janet Evanovich is the author of the Stephanie Plum books, including One for the Money and Sizzling Sixteen, and the Diesel & Tucker series, including Wicked Appetite. Janet studied painting at Douglass College, but that art form never quite fit, and she soon moved on to writing stories. She didn't have instant success: she collected a big box of rejection letters.

In SEVEN UP, Stephanie Plum is dropped into a smorgasbord of murder, kidnapping, and extortion - a magnificent buffet of fast cars, fast men and fast food. Stephanie Plum think she's going after an easy FTA: a senior citizen charged with smuggling contraband cigarettes. But when she and Lula show up at his house, they get more than they bargained for - a corpse in the woodshed and an old man on the lam. Stephanie's mind is on other matters, however, because she has two proposals to consider: vice cop Joe Morelli is proposing marriage, and fellow bounty hunter Ranger is proposing a single perfect night . . .
Reviews about Seven Up (7):
I loved this book. The Stephanie Plum character is hilarious. It is hard to make me laugh that hard but this book truly does. Plum is a bounty huner from the burg who works for her cousin Vinnie. He owns a bale bonds in Trenton New Jersey. Word gets around that a seventy year old retired mobster by the name of Eddie DeCooch can out run her even though he has cataracts, loss of hearing and a bad prostrate. It is Plums job to bring him in to set a new court date since he skipped his first one. His charge is trafficking contraband cigarettes. Not such an easy job, it turns out, since DeCooch has learned a lot of tricks over the years and isn't afraid to use his gun. Although, because he is pretty blind from his cataracts the bullets fly in crazy directions. Plum finds a dead woman in DeCooch's shed when she trys to track him down. She also has two friends from high school that are stoned most of the time and Mooner's brain is pretty fried from the drugs. Plum learns one one of her friens Doogie is missing and is somehow connected to DeCooch. All the twists and turns makes this book well worth the reading.
Уou ll never walk alone
Well, I thought about this a couple of times... How to review a book I loved. Okay, I loved the book in Hardcover. Stephanie is evolving and her life is it's usual topsy turvy roller coaster. The tension is great between Stephanie, Ranger and Joe Morelli. Maybe the story is typical in the sense that Stephanie is searching for someone she can't find so easily and bumbles around trying to catch the guy, so what, I love her for it. Janet writes them well enough that like it or not I can imagine myself there in the scene as it is happening. However, this AUDIO VERSION with TANYA EBY was a pitiful audio production of a book that deserved much more from an audio performance. Tanya Eby's performance took so much away from this book. Janet Evanovich's previous books have been read by a variety of readers from Lori Petty (abridged), Debi Mazar (abridged), Lorelie King(unabridged) and CJ Critt (unabridged through Recordedbooks.com). Out of the three CJ CRITT is fantastic and has my vote for any future performances of the Stephanie Plum series. I can not say enough about how disappointed I was in Tanya Eby's performance of this book, but don't let that stop you from reading this book because the series is a great deal of fun and SEVEN UP is one of my favorites and hopefully you'll enjoy it as well. I'll tell you I was so desperate to find out if I was in a nightmare in regards to the narrator I wrote the Brilliance Audio who produced the book. The answer I got from them was that No they weren't going to re-record the book that unlike me many people enjoyed the audio version. Not me my ears were bleeding afterwards. I wish as fans we had some say in who recorded the books CJ would be my choice, but anyone other than Tanya Eby would be a step up. It only proves that these companies no longer care about the quality, but how fast they can get it out and sold. I'd rather wait for Recorded Books quality version than the poor substitute I was sold.
While this series continues to be witty and amusing, some of the novelty has worn off the bumbling bounty hunter, and you wonder if she's ever going to learn how to deal with her daily life, her job, her romantic life and her family.

As usual, her cousin Vinnie gives her an assignment that looks easy, but ends up being a lot more trouble than Stephanie anticipates. As usual, she and Joe Morelli are great together until the M word comes up. As usual, she doesn't know how she feels about Ranger.

Predictably, she stumbles across a dead body, her car is damaged, and everybody wanders in and out of her apartment at will. By now you know that her mother will be hearing wedding bells, and that her grandmother will be shocking the living daylights out of Stephanie's mom and dad. Her gun is still safe and sound in the cookie jar.

Joyce, Lula, Dougie, Mooner and Connie are all there, but then the twists kick in. Stephanie's sister comes a' calling with some bad news and a lifestyle change, the dead body was already that way before the bullets hit home, Grandma Mazur is deeply involved in the case, and Stephanie learns the dangers of being heartless in New Jersey after Dougie and Mooner disappear.

Then there are two things to stir any male reader's heart - a Harley and female mud wrestling!

It's the little details that make the story, and this one is nicely garnished.
