Book Description

Bounty hunter Stephanie Plum thinks 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...

    Amazon.co.uk Review

    Stephanie Plum, Janet Evanovich's bounty hunter star of Seven Up, is good at her job partly because of her infinite resourcefulness and partly because her world is one in which everyone on all sides of the law knows at least one member of her extended family. In this, the seventh offering in the Stephanie Plum series, she is chasing an elderly mobster who used to go out with her grandmother. Eddie DeChooch, though, is no less formidable for being old and he constantly eludes Stephanie, the police who want to question him about the corpse Stephanie found in his garage and Joyce, her arch-rival in the bail bond enforcement business. Stephanie's crowded social life gets ever more intense with her family pressing her to name a date for her wedding to Joe, her unreliable cop fiancé, her drastically attractive colleague Ranger, asking her for a night of bliss, her horribly perfect sister Valerie back from California with a down on men and the idiot stoners Moonman and Doug wandering around in super-hero costumes. Evanovich constantly ups the comic ante; DeChooch and his sidekicks manage to be menacingly obnoxious while remaining credibly characters in a farce. The social observation of families is as acute as ever while never passing up the chance for snappy one-liners. Above all, Stephanie herself remains a delightful tone of voice--a heroine considerably braver than she ever lets herself notice and rather smarter an investigator than she or anyone else gives her credit for being. --Roz Kaveney

    5.0 out of 5 stars This series is my favorite sit com 21 Sept. 2001
    Format:Hardcover
    That last thing the world needs is another review of "Seven Up." However, after reading a number of reviews of this book, I do feel as though I have something to add to the mix.
    This series reminds me of watching your favorite TV sitcom. When you turn on the TV, you know exactly what to expect...the same central core of characters in familiar surroundings. However, you know that no matter how many times you have seen these people sitting in their living room, somehow each week something will happen or a dialogue will ensue that will have you roaring with laughter. I feel the same way whenever I pick up a Stephanie Plum book.
    For years, whenever someone would suggest I read this series, I always said that I didn't like funny mysteries. Finally succumbing to the pressure, I picked up the first book in the series. After reading it, I realized that the only way you can truly enjoy these books is if you give up the notion that they are mysteries. I find that the mystery is nothing but a backdrop for the antics of Stephanie Plum and the assorted off-center characters that are recurring characters and those that wander in and out of her life.
    I thought that "Seven Up" was a fine addition to this very funny series. Just sitting here thinking about Bob the Dog brings a smile to my face. I also thought the introduction of Stephanie's sister and the exploration of her sexual identity was brilliantly funny. This is a classic example of the subtle humor that Evanovich weaves into her stories. I find this to be the perfect foil to the more slapstick and far from subtle humor that I associate with Grandma Mazur. There are those who say that Grandma Mazur is getting boring and predictable.

    Format:Hardcover
    Stephanie Plum is back in the game, this is the seventh book in this series and it has all the usual ingredients. Ranger,Morelli,Vinne, the Plum family, Joyce Barnhardt, Bob & Rex. When I read the first chapters I actually wondered if the same author wrote it. As I read further however it was the usual suspects. A missing Mooner, an elderly FTA who keeps outsmarting Stephanie & Lula, Grandma Mazur keeping things interesting and Ranger looking hot and saying not much. I really enjoyed this novel,Janet Evanovich manages to keep humour, romance and mystery happening at the same time. If you enjoyed High Five this is definitely for you.Stephanie is still facing a moral dilemma and in this book she seems to be closer to making some serious decisions. A definite must have for all the Stephanie Plum fans out there. These novels are in the same vein as Denis Lehane & Robert Crais novels but a lot lighter in tone and style. Buy Seven Up - You will like it !

    By Mr. Joe HALL OF FAME TOP 1000 REVIEWER
    Format:Paperback
    Stephanie Plum is a bounty hunter working for her lecherous cousin Vinnie in Trenton, NJ. Klutzy Stephanie often mistakes her can of hair set for pepper spray, and forgets to charge her stun gun. It's a wonder she captures anybody.
    HOT SIX ended with undercover vice cop Joe Morelli proposing marriage - sort of.
    In SEVEN UP, Vinnie assigns Plum to seize Eddie DeChooch, who's jumped bail on a charge of cigarette smuggling. But Eddie refuses to be brought in until he finds something he's lost, and he's willing to resort to gunplay to make his point. But Stephanie hates guns - she keeps her .38 in a cookie jar. And what has DeChooch lost? All we and Stephanie know is that it has to be kept cold. In the meantime, Plum must mentally grasp Morelli's marriage proposal. They've an on-again, off-again relationship ever since Joe took her virginity on the floor behind the pastry counter of the bakery where she worked at eighteen. Mrs. Plum, whose nightmare is her daughter as an Old Maid, takes Stephanie out to try on wedding gowns when the latter, in a desperate moment at the Plum family dinner table with guest Joe, blurts out "August!". Will it happen, you think?

    4.0 out of 5 stars COOL, REFRESHING AND BUBBLY 7 May 2002
    By A Customer
    Format:Paperback
    First of all, I don't want to be finicky, but the gun-toting babe on the cover didn't call to mind Evanovich's feisty but incompetent heroine. More proof that you shouldn't judge a book by the cover.
    There's not much wrong with the text though, even if very little happens in the first half of the book. Even when the story starts to become clear it's all incredibly daft, but the real pleasure of the Stephanie Plum books is reading about the minutiae of her crazy lifestyle and her even crazier family.
    There are plenty of opportunities to laugh out loud and, once things get going, plenty of outrageous action. The mud wrestling was my favourite.
