Summary

A spectacular novel, complete with high stakes, hot nights, murder and graft - not to mention car chases, car races, car explosions, and car - well, you get the idea

Alexandra Barnaby got the brains in her family. The little gray cells certainly bypassed Barney's younger brother, Wild Bill. Now Bill's missing, so Barney is dispatched to Florida in the middle of summer with the bugs and the heat and the bad-hair-day humidity. Barney's thinking things can't get too much worse as she makes the rounds of South Beach, unemployed and sunburned, following her brother's trail of broken-hearted bimbos.

Too bad for Barney - she's wrong about the getting worse part. Enter Sam Hooker. Somebody's stolen his boat and the trail leads to - you guessed it - Wild Bill. Hooker decides to follow Barney and see if she can lead him to his boat.

In the world of Evanovich, Sam Hooker and Alexandra Barnaby, in their quest to reclaim what's theirs, blast through Florida from Daytona straight on to Key West, exposing a plot to grab Cuban land and to lay waste the people involved. 

Cussing and tasteless sexual innuendo included.

I love Metro Girl.

I have really enjoyed Metro Girl. I have long been a fan of Janet’s. I find her writing a pleasure. I love nothing more to escape in any one of your characters. I love Stephanie I have listened to more of your books more than once. I am very much looking forward to the next instalment of Fox and O'Hare. Your work all ways makes me laugh out loud.
Lol please write faster. Fab and amazing as always.

Summer Fun

Janet Evanovich does it again. Great new lead character and a great deal of fun. It's not rocket science but it's a great diversion for when you're stuck in traffic.CJ is an awesome reader too.

So-so listen

I've read 1-3 and 10 in the Stephanie Plum series and thoroughly enjoyed them...at many points laughed aloud. This, on the other hand, was basically boring. It wasn't very funny until parts at the end; the plot was ridiculous at points; characters were rather uninteresting. I'd recommend that you skip this one and stick with the "numbered" Stephanie Plum series.

Good, but....

This book is a funny read, but not a great listen -- don't bother as long as C.J. Critt is reading it. Critt does a really great job with with Dramas -- she brings the work of Patricia Cornwell alive, but she just doesn't have what it takes to read a comedy/adventure novel like those found in Janet Evanovich books. I was excited to see that Evanovich came up with the book, a possible change from the Plum books, but found myself saying over and over, "Why, why didn't she have Lorelei King read it as she does with most of the Plum books?" Evanovich's work on this one is deleted by the reading -- ONLY USE KING!!!
