Amazon 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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review

"A madcap comic mystery--Jersey-girl style."--the "New York Times""A clever cast of good-hearted hoods and nutty family members rival "The Sopranos"."--"People""If you like your summer reads hot and sassy, try "Seven Up"."--"Boston Herald""Evanovich is the crown princess of detective fiction . . . "Seven Up" is brassy, comical, and light-hearted."--"Bookpage""["Seven Up"] is funny, sexy, and scary."--"Booklist""Edgy romantic triangle, the loopy family relationships, or the bounty-hunting jobs that skate between absurdity and genuine tension."--"Denver Post""Expect a laugh per page . . .

About the Author

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. As she puts it, "When the box was full I burned the whole damn thing, crammed myself into pantyhose and went to work for a temp agency." But after a few months of secretarial work, she managed to sell her first novel for $2,000. She immediately quit her job and started working full-time as a writer. After 12 romance novels, she switched to mystery, and created Stephanie Plum. The rest is history. Janet's favorite exercise is shopping, and her drug of choice is Cheeze Doodles. She and her husband live in New Hampshire, in house with a view of the Connecticut River Valley.
