    1. Book Review4 out of 5 stars to Hard Eight, the 8th book in the Stephanie Plum cozy mystery series, written in 2002 by Janet Evanovich OK so I cannot figure out for the life of me how Ms Evanovich comes up with the hilarity in these characters It s absolutely amazing to see the varying degrees of lunatics Stephanie has to deal with In this book, it s less about one particular mystery, although there is a driving case she is working on There are about 10 skips bail jumpers she s trying to chase, a [...]

    2. Finally, after seven books, Stephanie has fornicated with Batman, aka, Ranger Major kudos go to Janet Evanovich for making my stomach flip without a whole lot of information I ve never even seen this Ranger, or Joe Morelli for that matter, and yet all I have to do is read a line and somehow they can send heat straight to my doodah, Jesus I have no doubt that men everywhere would give their right arm for such a skill The plots remain rather over the top, but I have come to find the ridiculousness [...]

    3. This one was a little bit of a let down after the previous books I mean, yeah, there were plenty of cars getting blown up and a killer in a rabbit suit chasing her, but there was also a kind of sad undertone because of the break up I don t want sad and serious in these books I read them to get away from sad and serious stuff I m a sad serious avoider It s one of my life goals.Stephanie is also not really improving as a bounty hunter She is afraid of her gun, can never get her pepper spray out of [...]

    4. Stephanie has a slightly different challenge to face in this instalment she s been asked to track down a missing young girl on behalf of her very worried grandmother Unfortunately the search puts her in the sights of Eddie Abruzzi, a nasty piece of work who is in business with the child s father As the danger ratchets up a notch and Morelli continues to keep his distance after their latest fallout it s up to Ranger to come to Stephanie s aid when she needs him the most.This series is just so muc [...]

    5. Some dastardly doer named Eddie Abruzzi finally forces Stephanie Plum to have sex with Ranger There, I ve said it Not really a spoiler If you have been reading this series, you knew it was going to happen eventually I have to hand it to Janet Evanovich she really knows how to build her wispy writing to a satisfying climax Even though this particular orgasm took seven novels to achieve Part of the foreplay involves a new character with the great last name of Kloughn pronounced clown and as much a [...]

    6. In this book, bounty hunter Stephanie gets a couple two bit FTAs failure to appear to get back to court She fails miserably a couple times and rewards herself with doughnuts While juggling lusty feelings for both Ranger and Morelli, she gets an unwanted sidekick tagging along After getting yet another car destroyed, her neighborhood cops show up to laugh at her She goes to have dinner with her protective mother and smack talking grandma, while her father rolls his eyes and quietly eats his dinne [...]

    7. I am giving this book 5 Stars solely on the grounds that it wasbeyond hilarious.Never in my life I have read anything so ridiculously funny Every character, every situation was so full of rollicking stupidity that it made me burst out laughing The mystery in this book was okay, I didn t really care much about it because in this installment we had an abundance of entertaining side kicks.Albert Klough s description of looking like a Pillsbury Doughboy made me laugh lout loud EVERY TIME xDAnd the s [...]

    8. Why oh why didn t Janet go into a little detail about Steph s escapade with Ranger Darnit, I wanted info than that LOL That s okay He s still just as hot as ever I enjoyed the story, but it still seems strange, the situation between Joe and Steph Why is it that he can t accept wholely who Steph is and what she does for a living Would he feel the same if she was a cop If you ask me, the attitude is a selfish one, and he s really starting to piss me off Wonder what the next story will bring I ad [...]

    9. Lately, I ve been spending a lot of time rolling on the ground with men who think a stiffy represents personal growth The rolling around has nothing to do with my sex life The rolling around is what happens when a bust goes crapola and there s a last ditch effort to hog tie a big, dumb bad guy possessing a congenitally defective frontal lobe.Stephanie and Lula make a wonderful team They met in book one Stephanie was just beginning her journey as a bounty hunter and Lula was still working the str [...]

    10. Well, I think I am done with Miss Plum Eight books and she is still terrible at what she does People are always asking her why she doesn t get a new job, and I have come to the conclusion it s because she has an undisclosed death wish, why the hell else would you do a job you re bad at where you are constantly putting yourself in danger She doesn t take it seriously at all ACK I m so annoyed I ve read reviews for books later in the series 17, 18 and it appears nothing changes between now and the [...]

    11. Hard Eight is a fantastic Plum novel and is one of my favorites This story is about Stephanie helping out her parent s neighbor The neighbor s granddaughter Evelyn and great granddaughter Annie have disappeared so Stephanie agrees to help find them In the process of locating Evelyn and Annie, Stephanie crosses paths with a dangerous individual by the name of Eddie Abruzzi Eddie threatens Stephanie to try and get her to stop looking for Evelyn and Annie One of my favorite parts of this book is th [...]

    12. You know what this series is like It s Casualty Each episode has a different story or two related to the job, and sometimes those caught up in it have some sort of connection with one of the regulars, but meanwhile there s a soap opera plot which depends on the personalities and out of work life of the main characters A slightly new tale, a familiar formula and the latest status updates from people you ve come to care for OK, so this is bond enforcement in New Jersey, not AE in Holby the genre [...]

    13. In Hard Eight, it begins with Stephanie feeling a little in limbo She likes her job, generally speaking However she is getting tired of her tendency to be stalked by crazy people or getting shot at Both of which happen once again in her latest case Her neighbor Mabel comes to her for help Mabel s grandaughter Evelyn and her daughter Annie are on the run from Eveyln s exhusband Due to a custody bond agreement where Mabel put her house up for collateral, her house is now potentially going to be ta [...]

    14. When description is given to the homocidal masturbating bunny than Plum s first time with Ranger Something s not quite right Amusing, fun, but decidedly disappointing Now To the Nines.

    15. I received Hard Eight, the unabridged audiobook version, as a present and approached it with a small amount of wariness because the last Janet Evanovich book I read on audio that would be Seven Up was ruined by the terrible over the top, cartoon like rendering of the characters by narrator Tonya Elby Hard Eight is read by a woman named Lorelei who takes an extremely different approach to Stephanie Her approach, unfortunately, also does not work for me Am I too picky, or what Stephanie s voice as [...]

    16. 5 stars just for sheer laugh out loudness I love the Stephanie Plum series She has to be the unluckiest bail bonds person private eye ever These books are fabulously confusing, over the top, well plotted, raunchy, and stuffed with crazy characters black humour They have it all and really do have you laughing out loud The best thing, for me, is that there are lots left in the series for me to read Yay

    17. This series is quite simply a never ending buffet, well maybe it will end sooner or later, but not soon Just when you think our gal Stephanie s run of bad luck has come to an end, it starts again Added to the usual cast of characters in this volume is an attorney named Albert Kloughn pronounced clown He gets sucked into the F5 which is Stephanie s life and career Stephanie is on the lookout for her neighbor s daughter, who doesn t want to be found Trouble is Stephanie may not be the only one loo [...]

    18. La Evanovich come sempre magistrale nel farti ridere a crepapelle per le situazioni pi inverosimili e bizzarre, senza risultare mai esagerata.Come al solito, Stephanie alle prese con macchine che vanno a fuoco, criminali mascherati, sfuggenti e pericolosi, una famiglia esilarante e amici surreali.Qui deve anche palleggiarsi finalmente fino in fondo anche con Ranger tra i suoi due uomini da sballo che le ronzano intorno.Stephanie sempre un toccasana.

    19. I finished this one at about 2 30 in the morning, it s all the previous books fault I wanted to see if Stephanie paid up on her end of the deal with Ranger, but she doesn t, at the beginning anyways I should have stopped there, but the potential Ranger goodness sucked me in And I wasn t disappointed D I don t think there s going to be any long term Stephanie Ranger cause the books seem to always bring her back to boring Morelli, but I ll take what I can get Ranger s always lurking around with hi [...]

    20. Stephanie Plum is helping out a neighbor of her parents by trying to locate her grand daughter and great grand daughter Evelyn s sleezy ex and her signed a child custody bond and now Steven wants his money and the bond was bought for Evelyn by putting up Grandmothers house Steven is connected to a very bad ass named Eddie Abruzzi and is now threating Stephanie and her family Stephanie is also trying to capture and take in Andy Bender who is a violent drunk Bender keeps alluding her and people an [...]

    21. This was a good recovery from the last book for me I laughed quite a few times in this book and was getting the evil eye from my husband for it again so that s a good thing.What is it with Stephanie and picking up every stray in the Burg Kloughn just cracked me up, Lula, God what a team the three of them make Misfit Ragtag, but damn funny to read The dryer scene, I nearly pee d my pants on that one Very funny.And Psycho s What s up with every psycho in the Burg wanting a piece of her I swear she [...]

    22. Finally action from Ranger in this book I was a little disappointed of Steph and Ranger s one night stand, it needed something After all the suspence towards it in the last books, I was expecting something .What would really make me love this series is if there were some POV from Morelli and Ranger God I would really love to know what is going on in their minds behind all those intense stares and sexy grins So, I guess she is back with Morelli again at the end of this book Shame I wanted Rang [...]

    23. This one by far is my favorite I was laughing non stop from the beginning to end Lula is hilarious and Stephanie continues to get herself into trouble, it amazes me how much luck she has to survive especially in dealing so much with the mob type of men This was the first time one of her FTA s escaped her as well And finally, she payed Ranger some of her bill seems to me that the author Janet prefers Morelli for Stephanie She seems to describe their interactions with detail and when Ranger and S [...]

    24. Another good novel for running Stephanie is after 2 people in this novel The first is the granddaughter of her parent s next door neighbour She has disappeared with her daughter and has a child bond The second is a man out on bail who has assaulted his wife For most of the novel, Stephanie is not very good in either case.Overall, a typically Stephanie Plum novel, a nice mindless read.

    25. 4stelle e mezzo per una serie da 5 stelle l ottavo libro ed divertente, esilarante, incalzante come i precedenti Come non adorare Stephanie con tutti i suoi difetti, le sue imperfezioni e quella dose di autoironia che la rende diversa da tutte queste eroine perfettine dei nostri tempiuna ragazza della porta accanto anche se come vicina di casa sarebbe pericolosa

    26. It took me about 3 years to finish this book Not sure why.Steph has to pay up on her debt with Ranger and they have sex.She and Morelli are on a time outbut may have gotten back together in the end.Grandma Mazur was a hoot.Nattation by CJ Critt awesome
