Format: Paperback
I first 'discovered' the Stephanie Plum books a few years ago, the first one I read was 'Hot Six'. I've recently bought and read the entire series, just in time for the release of 'To the Nines'. All the books in the series are amazing, combining the suspense of the crime genre with more laughs than your favourite comedy show.
Anyway, about this book...usually as a series goes on the author starts to run out of ideas and the books become dull and repetitive, this book is a definite exception!! Whilst I was reading this book, I found myself getting weird looks from the people around me as I couldn't help but laugh out loud...it's genius! For those of you who have read the Stephanie Plum series, she has graduated from blowing up cars to hospitalising Ranger's "Merry Men" in various interesting and amusing ways.
'To the Nines' is filled with Stephanie's insane friends and family, her tendency to attract trouble and the two gorgeous men in her life Morelli and Ranger...all making this book the fast-paced, action packed and funny read it is.

Format: Paperback
As one of the sweaty masses in constant need of "bread and circuses" to forestall social discontent, the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich has been a mainstay of cheap entertainment. However, by the end of book eight (HARD EIGHT), even that was beginning stale around the edges. But elements of TO THE NINES have reinvigorated my interest.
If you don't know from your assigned reading by now, Stephanie is a bond enforcement agent - a bounty hunter - employed by her bail bondsman cousin, Vinnie, in Trenton, NJ. While Plum eventually manages to catch her man (or woman), she invariably leaves a trail of chaos in her wake, and her modus operandi is endearingly klutzy. Plus, all the characters in her personal and professional life lie on a continuum from being mildly eccentric to outright wack jobs. Only her pet hamster, Rex, is normal.
In TO THE NINES, Stephanie's quarry is Samuel Singh, an Indian in the States on a temporary work visa on which Vinnie has underwritten a new type of bond - a "visa bond". But Singh has disappeared, and the resulting bad publicity will destroy Vinnie's business unless his disaster-prone cousin can find him. Assigned to help in the search is Vinnie's premier contract agent, Ranger, a mysterious ex-Special Forces type that operates just outside the law and who, since book one (ONE FOR THE MONEY), has inpired a warm feeling in our heroine's nether regions despite her off-and-on emotional and sexual commitment to another cousin, Trenton police detective Joe Morelli, who relieved Stephanie of her virginity behind a bakery's pastry counter back when they were teenagers. Ranger is a Hunk Dressed in Black.
As I hinted earlier, the Stephanie Plum comedic thrillers, while always very funny, follow an invariable pattern.

Janet Evanovich is back on form after the slightly weak Visions
of Sugar Plums.
The characters are tightly brought together and you feel like your visiting old friends.
The writing is always lively and very funny and i'm convinced Janet has met several members of my family!!
Stephanie Plum is the real thing.So if you want a well written book,fantastic characters,humour and a great lead man (Ranger..need I say more!)READ THIS BOOK

Format: Hardcover
'To the nines' is the latest in the Plum colection and in competion with 'seven up'(number 7) for the best in the series and the rest are great. It combines the best bits of every book I've ever read. Stephanie Plum living a life I've secretly always wanted to lead - fast cars, hot men (2 of them) and she only gets shot at every now and then! It has every emotion going, I sat reading it tryng to decide wheather to laugh, cry or feel sick. It's so fast paced, in parts, it had my heart racing and I started reading faster to find out what happened. I've sugested these books to all my family and friends. The best thing is all of them stand alone so it doesn't matter what order you read them in (for the best effect they should be read in order though). It's great after a really bad day curling up with this book and however bad your day was, it guarantied not to be as bad as her's. Brilliant book that's definatly worth reading.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Donald Mitchell HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 25 Jun 2004
Format: Paperback
Anyone who has enjoyed any of the eight previous Stephanie Plum novels would be very foolish to skip this one. If you haven't read any of those, you can safely start with this one . . . but don't expect the earlier ones to be nearly this good.
Stephanie Plum, the down home city girl from the Burg in Trenton, continues in her bounty hunter job, and she takes on some pretty unusual ones in To the Nines. As Stephanie describes it, her retrievals have more to do with Lucy Ricardo from I Love Lucy than with Wonder Woman. Her cousin Vinnie faces an enormous embarrassment if he cannot find and bring in one Samuel Singh, a temporary worker from India, for whom Vinnie wrote a visa bond. Vinnie sends Stephanie and her mentor (and sometimes squeeze) Ranger out to find Singh. A major plot line of the book revolves around this search.
A secondary and engrossing plot involves the mystery of who is threatening Stephanie and killing people around her after she has lunch at McDonald's.
A third and happier plot involves Stephanie and Morelli's relationship.
A fourth plot focuses on Stephanie's unmarried sister, Valerie, who is nine months pregnant.
On top of these interesting plots and subplots, the mystery is quite engrossing. I had no idea what was really going on until about 60 pages from the end.
On top of this, the book is filled with hilarious little scenes featuring the manic members of the Burg, including her man-crazy Grandma Mazur, Morelli's Grandmother Bella who has visions of dead women all the time, the generously endowed Connie Rossolli from Vinnie's office, and even Stephanie's mother who's having trouble coping.
The pace of this book is amazing. There's something significant happening on almost every page.
