Book Description

8 Jun 2001 Stephanie Plum 06
First there's fellow bounty hunter Ranger, currently on the run from a murder rap and requesting Stephanie's help. Trouble is she can't decide if she should turn him in or keep him for herself. Then there's sexy vice cop Joe Morelli - the man her heart says she's in love with (even though her head says otherwise). He's after Ranger too - but for less romantic reasons. . . And now there's another male in her life. He's big, he's orange, and he howls when he's left alone. Sexual temptation, homicidal maniacs, car crashes and doughnut addiction are all part of Stephanie Pum's daily routine. But all that pales into insignificance when Grandma Mazur moves in . . .

Product Description

Amazon Review

Low-rent bounty hunter Stephanie Plum reaches depths of personal experience that other women detectives never quite do. In Hot Six, for example, a sequence of new and hideous cars bite the dust; she finds herself lumbered with a policeman's multiply incontinent dog; and she has several bad skin days. All this when she is trying to prove her distinctly more competent colleague and occasional boyfriend Ranger innocent of a mob hit; avoid the heavies trailing her in the hope of finding him; and cope with a wife-abusing bail defaulter with nasty habits, such as setting Stephanie on fire. The peculiar joy of this series is the comic sense of place; Plum's New Jersey is one where everyone you meet, even the most dangerous of criminals, was at school with you, or stole your mother's first boyfriend, or gave your great-aunt a middling good recipe for meatloaf. Evanovich has built up an attractive cast of comic characters with Stephanie's extended family and those of her two boyfriends, the dashing and sinister Ranger and Joe Morelli (the cop whose family are only too keen on his marrying Stephanie). Hot Six will not disappoint either her fans or newcomers. --Roz Kaveney --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

5.0 out of 5 stars Health warning 4 Nov 2004
Format:Paperback
Please, please, please do NOT read this book in public. I took it on holiday with me and I have not yet recovered. I was unable to contain guffawing shrieks of laughter and at one point, on a crowded beach, had to stop reading the book I was so embarrased. Just thinking about it makes me smile.
There is one particular episode involving a kidnapped dog which was so funny, I read it over and over with tears streaming down my face. This was in a Greek restaurant.
You have been warned.

5.0 out of 5 stars Slapstick Rules as Klutzy Criminals Cruise 22 May 2004
By Donald Mitchell HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
This book belongs in a new category: Something funnier than comedy that contains a little crime as context for the humor. Seriously, this book is funnier than if The Three Stooges played the criminals and took on The Keystone Kops.
The story has several running gags that are well sustained. Stephanie Plum and those who are attracted to her are very interested in having sexual relations, but are continually stymmied in unpredictable ways. Bob, the dog, comes into Stephanie's life, and one disaster follows another. This dog is the Lucille Ball of animals, and makes a complete farce out of every situation. The criminals in question are so clumsy and stupid that they continually give themselves away, leaving you with virtually no mystery to hold in your hands. Stephanie continually has her efforts to be a bounty hunter turn out poorly, yet somehow she gets out of the worst of what could happen with another hilarious mishap scene. Stephanie's grandmother decides she wants to ride the wild side and moves in with Stephanie. Between her interest in men and snoring, she is driving Stephanie up a wall. There are more such running gags, but you get the idea. Many books make the mistake of overdoing a single running gag. By filling this book to the brim with them, none are overdone.
Few novels feel like they should be a movie, but this is clearly one of them. Each scene is very visceral in its development and humor.
You may not want to read this book right away. It is so funny that you may want to save it for an emergency, like the fire hose in most building hallways. You can be sure you'll laugh your head off whenever you do read it.

5.0 out of 5 stars I wish I had found Janet Evanovich earlier!!!!!! 26 Nov 2003
By Jen
Format:Paperback
I have only recenly discovered Janet Evanovich, and her bounty hunter Stephanie Plum, but wish I found her earlier. I got Hot Six from the library, and had read it in 24 hours, unfortunatley I had not done any washing / cleaning and had lived on junk food. I am sure Stephanie would approve however that the dog went out!!!!
Morelli, Ranger, Bob and Rex - The three men in her life, and Gramdma Mazur, Lulu and Connie - the women all add up to great stories, laughs and with a few FTA's thrown in!!!
Basically what I am trying to say is that I dare you to pick it up, because putting it down is not an option!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars As always, BRILLIANT!!!!! 18 May 2001
Format:Paperback
She has done it again, Plum is back, in full force. This is the first serie of mystery/crime novels that I find is both thrilling and laugh-out-loud-funny. I just wish she could write a bit faster. I have read all six books in two weeks and can't wait for number seven.

Format:Hardcover
I was introduced to this author by a friend from university, who raved & raved about her. I admit to being very cynical about anything being that good. But from the 1st chapter of 1 for the Money, I was hooked. I carried this book in my bag to work, I read it on the bus, on my lunch break and didn't speak to a single person voluntarily till i had finished it. Then within 10 days of finishing it I had bought & read my way through the next four adventures of Stephanie Plum. These actions left me with a 6 months period of cold turkey while i awaited Hot Six, in which my emotions went from annoyance that JE dosen't write faster, to fear that Hot six won't live up to its predecessors, to longing & anticipation for it to be published.
However upon reading it I was relived to find my fears groundless. This book was everything i could wish for madcap, sexy and laughout loud crazy with a group of characters that made me relived & slighty jealous not to live Trenton New Jersey. And just incase J.E ever reads these reviews. I say thank you, thank you, thank you and please write faster. (ps don't let the film people miscast or tinker with your story)
