Description

Personal vendettas, hidden treasure, and a monkey named Carl will send bounty hunter Stephanie Plum on her most explosive adventure yet.

The Crime: Armed robbery to the tune of nine million dollars

Dom Rizzi robbed a bank, stashed the money, and did the time. His family couldn't be more proud. He always was the smart one.

The Cousin: Joe Morelli

Joe Morelli, Dom Rizzi, and Dom's sister, Loretta, are cousins. Morelli is a cop, Rizzi robs banks, and Loretta is a single mother waiting tables at the firehouse. The all-American family.

The Complications: Murder, kidnapping, destruction of personal property, and acid reflux

Less than a week after Dom's release from prison, Joe Morelli has shadowy figures breaking into his house and dying in his basement. He's getting threatening messages, Loretta is kidnapped, and Dom is missing.

The Catastrophe: Moonman

Morelli hires Walter "Mooner" Dunphy, stoner and "inventor" turned crime fighter, to protect his house. Morelli can't afford a lot on a cop's salary, and Mooner will work for potatoes.

The Cupcake: Stephanie Plum

Stephanie and Morelli have a long-standing relationship that involves sex, affection, and driving each other nuts. She's a bond enforcement agent with more luck than talent, and she's involved in this bank-robbery-gone-bad disaster from day one.

The Crisis: A favor for Ranger

Security expert Carlos Manoso, street name Ranger, has a job for Stephanie that will involve night work. Morelli has his own ideas regarding Stephanie's evening activities.

The Conclusion: Only the fearless should listen to Fearless Fourteen by Janet Evanovich.

Thrills, chills, and incontinence may result.

    review from The Little BookwormThe further madcap adventures of Ms. Stephanie Plum. This time Stephanie has to deal with a wedding obsessed Lulu, a teenage boy and his missing man, the boy's crazy bank robbing uncle and an aging popstar.I really enjoyed this one and was surprised by the ending. It had its usual hijinks of Stephanie and Lulu trying to take down some FTAs but not as many as usual. This one focused more on Ranger's security detail on the popstar, Brenda, a cross between Britney, Madonna, and Dolly Parton. Brenda was a great addition since she was so funny and her "stalker" Gary was hilarious. I love how Stephanie just accepts these people in her life and gives them sandwiches. That was so great. It was also funny how Brenda made Ranger nervous. You just don't get that from Ranger.Lulu's decision to marry Tank so also a great subplot. I think it's funny that Tank is scared of Lulu and just lets her go on. I doubt that they will get married, but it's a fun thing to read. Grandma Mazer makes many hilarious appearances as does Mooner. It was a great book and I really thought I knew how it was going to end and I was wrong. So the predictability went out the window with this one.

    Stephanie Plum finds herself babysitting a teenager for a kidnapped victim, being a bodyguard for a wayward star and searching for stolen money.Phew! I'm caught up with the series - which was my goal. I did think this one was better than "13", but I didn't really like it. Stephanie kept herself busy with other jobs beside bounty hunting, which allowed her to show another dimension of herself and Lula experienced some excitement in her life, but other than that, there were the same type of ridiculous characters and dialog that possibly has me closing this chapter of my reading. (2.75/5)Originally posted on: "Thoughts of Joy..."

    Great fun!

    Book fourteen (ish) in Janet Evanovich's series about Stephanie Plum, bumbling bounty hunter. This time, Stephanie takes a side job as security for an aging singer, she and her sometimes-boyfriend Joe Morelli end up babysitting a teenager who's obsessed with an online RPG, and it turns out there may be nine million dollars hidden somewhere in Morelli's house.Really, what is there to say after fourteen-plus of these? It's quick-reading and mildly diverting but instantly forgettable. Or, basically: it's another Stephanie Plum novel.

    Fun as always.

    Another excellent installment of the Stephanie Plum series. The introduction of a couple of delightful teenagers, and Lula's impending nuptials add lots of zing to the story. Great series!

    BOTTOM-LINE:Good story, not the most compelling.PLOT OR PREMISE:Morelli's cousin committed a robbery years ago and the money was never found. Now people think it is hidden in Morelli's house, and everybody wants some of it..WHAT I LIKED:The story generally revolves around providing security for an aging country star, and it's an interesting diversion. In addition, Stephanie is looking after a teenager that may or may not be Morelli's illegitimate son..WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE:There's a stalker running around the story, which everyone thinks is funny, not sure why..DISCLOSURE:I received no compensation, not even a free copy, in exchange for this review. I am not personal friends with the author, nor do I follow her on social media.

    One of my favorites of the series. Super funny and good amount of suspense and sexiness.

    Once again another great addition to the series. Morelli is back in her life for most of this book. Ranger not so much this time around. Taking on a kid and acting like a family for a bit. she keeps the story moving and interesting. Loving this series.

    I'm so glad Stephanie's car didn't blow up in this story, however, there was an Econoline van explosion...

    Stephanie Plum is at it again! In Fearless Fourteen she teams up with some of the old gang (Morelli, Ranger, Lula and Grandma Mazur) and some new characters (and they are characters!!) Zook, Mooner and Gary to name a few.

    I tend to skip around with the Stephanie Plum books.....I pick up one of the audios here & there when I'm in the mood for light reading. For the most part you can do that with these....read them in any particular order & not feel like you missed much with any of the previous ones. This one was just so-so....it didn't have the relationship tension between Stephanie & Morelli & Ranger that I like with this series, but that may well have been because this was the abridged version. However, at this point, I prefer Evanovich's books as abridgements, as the full books are just too much for me. Too silly, too frivolous. I like reader Lorelei King's voice as narrator/Stephanie, but her attempts at the other characters just annoys me.

    Not my fave in the series, but still a good read - kept me turning the page, and ended up reading it in less than a day. Fun, which is exactly what I like from this series.

    I really enjoyed this one, It was a quick read and MOONER came back!! I had really missed him.. Now just to figure out where the toes came from.
  • (4/5)
    I always enjoy this series. It's not intense, but it's fun. Usually I listen for the antics of Grandma Mazur. This was no disappointment as Grandma gets involved in an online gaming site and goes hunting for buried treasure. However, this time, Lula stole the show for me. Her wedding planning antics and Tank's reaction were priceless!

    After the movie, One for the Money (I loved it), I wanted to read the books. I was half happy and half disappointed (to be fair the first few books were better than the rest - I've read 17 or 18). The writing isn't anything special but there is banter and wit (which is waning). I love her grandma, the ex-hooker, and some other random side characters - that and the witty moments kept me coming back for more.By the time of the 5th book (or at least by the 10th) you would think she would start to get the hang of her job or get a new one - nope. At a certain point she is just a pretty woman of 30ish who can't pick from 2 men (or choose to move on from both), who is bad at her job, and relies on luck and the men in her life to save her (to be fair I think of one time she was saved by a woman).So why do I keep reading? In spite of how annoying she is, and how she is hopelessly in love with 2 mildly mentally abusive men? Despite all the half attractive or good guys being over 6 ft tall for some reason and all the other men are taken or ugly? The reason is the supporting crazy characters, and the fading wit.

    I really enjoyed this one, it was definitely better than some of the previous ones. I liked that Moonman was back, he always adds some humor. I'm looking forward to reading more of this series and I look forward to seeing whether Lula will have her wedding.

    Not as funny as the previous 13, but enjoyable all the same. The scene with the monkey had me laughing pretty hard.
  • (3/5)
    I enjoyed this one. It was fast paced, fun, and light-hearted. It was exactly what I needed right now. I do think some of the crazies attached to Stephanie are a bit much (Zook and Mooner come to mind), but they were both fun and light-hearted so it was okay. Part of me is still waiting for Stephanie to learn how to be a bounty hunter, and maybe meet some realistic side-characters, but right now I kind of liked the fun. The mystery was good.
  • (4/5)
    Another laugh out loud book from Janet Evanovich. It was interesting to see Stephanie and Joe as stand-in parents of a teenage boy whose mother was in jail for armed robbery of a liquour store and was subsequently bailed and taken hostage. Lula was hilarious - any woman who wants to get engaged badly enough should follow Lula's example! After finishing the book I was left to wonder whose toes were amputated if they were not from the feet of the hostage - now that was a head scratcher.

    Once again another great addition to the series. Morelli is back in her life for most of this book. Ranger not so much this time around. Taking on a kid and acting like a family for a bit. she keeps the story moving and interesting. Loving this series.

    Once more, into the screwball world of Stephanie Plum I go.Stephanie's relationship with Joe Morelli seems to be the pivot point of this madcap plot...or rather the house he lives in. He inherited it from his Aunt Rose. It seems to be a place that is being frequented by visitors to his basement at odd hours. Why?Dom Rizzi is recently out of jail from serving his time for the nine million dollar robbery he did. The money is still out there and people are looking for it.Stephanie is given the job of picking up Loretta Rizzi, Dom's sister, for a no-so on a court date. As a side assignment, Stephanie has to figure out where Loretta's son, Mario, can stay until Loretta can make bail...again. Mario is "sensitive and artistic" and is in high school. He goes by the name of "Zook" and is heavy into "Minionfire," a role playing on line game.There is also a monkey named Carl, a sexy hot security guy named Ranger who is a big temptation for Stephanie, a stoner and 'inventor' named Walter "Mooner" Dumphy and Stephanie's work partner Lula, who used to be a 'ho before she got into the bail business. With this mixed cast of characters things are quite lively and unpredictable.Will Morelli figure out why strangers are in his basement? Will Stephanie find out where Dom hid the nine million he stole? Will Loretta get bonded? Where does Carl disappear to?The Stephanie Plum series are fun and fast reads. They make a good break when I find I'm reading a couple of more serious books at the same time. Sort of lightens things up!

    Stephanie is takes on a job with Ranger protecting a 61 year old singer named Brenda from her fans and stalker cousin Gary. Meanwhile a bondee (forgot her name) is missing after promising to watch her kid (Mario) until she is re-bonded. A hunt for 9 million dollars is at the root of all the drama. The search is out for the missing mom and the 9 million. In the process of tracking down the money with Lula and Brenda in tow, Stephanie turns blue (literally). Lula has concocted an engagement to Tank which leaves for many raucous and over-the-top moments. Never a dull moment with Lula around. Mooner is back and is a video gamer competitor against the kid for which Stephanie is now responsible.

    Funny as the Stephanie Plum series continues - loved the audio as the characters come alive!

    Personal vendettas, hidden treasure, and a monkey named Carl will send bounty hunter Stephanie Plum on her most explosive adventure yet as Dom Rizzi robbed a bank, stashed the money and did the time.
    Joe Morelli, Dom Rizzi and Dom’s sister Loretta are cousins. Morelli is a cop, Rizzi robs banks, and Loretta is a single mother waiting tables at the firehouse. Less than a week after Dom’s release from prison, Joe Morelli has shadowy figures breaking into his house and dying in his basement. He’s getting threatening messages, Loretta is kidnapped, and Dom is missing.

    Morelli hires Walter “Mooner” Dunphy, stoner and “inventor” turned crime-fighter to protect his house. Morelli can’t afford a lot on a cop’s salary, and Mooner will work for potatoes.

    I have a theory. I think someone else has been writing Janet Evanovich’s books since book 14, possibly since 13. But 14 definitely reads like someone trying to write in her style and failing. I think that’s why she lost so many fans. I just re-read the first 11. All of them good.

    12 is still her, but she’s losing interest. 13 is too loose, but she is still there, she still makes me laugh. 14 is someone else entirely. Its someone trying to write like Evanovich (possibly her daughter). Its in the little things, that I notice it. Evanovich likes to tell us about Stephanie's daily minutae. What she ate, what she sleeps in, etc. She doesn't miss a change to describe an inappropriate kiss from Ranger. Those things are almost there in this book, but not quite. And then there is just the fact that the book is a huge swing and miss.

    Every book after 14 has that stale, not quite right feeling. I didn’t even finish 17, it was too pointless. I attributed it to Evanovich being sick of the characters. But now I think she's not writing much of the book at all. Although, I think 18 might be her again. But I’m not sure.

    Her next book is another in a separate Diesel series she started. I don’t mind them and I will probably buy it. I am interested in seeing if I think she wrote it or someone is ghosting it.

    While there are aspects of this one that are incredibly far-fetched...I enjoyed. Mooner is one of my favorite characters so happy to see him again. And Lula...I wish I had a Lula.
  • (4/5)
    I really enjoyed the side characters more than anything. Zook, Mooner, Gary the stalker, Grandma Lula aka Scorch, Lula and Tank were all pretty damn hilarious and really made the story.
  • (3/5)
    More of the same kooky fun from Stephanie Plum, Fearless Fourteen doesn't advance her relationships with Joe or Ranger at all but there's plenty of hijinks and sort-of crime solving. Lula gets a lot of attention this time as she's planning her wedding to Tank and Grandma Mazur is as over-the-top as usual. If I remember correctly, there is a small departure from formula as Stephanie's car does not get blown up - I think it only gets spray-painted. Overall, I enjoyed this latest installment in the series and look forward to the next, but I'm wondering how long Evanovich can keep Stephanie balanced between the two men in her life even with the minimal expectations of realism that the series has.

    It's like comfort food or a comfortable chair. You pretty much know what you're getting, you enjoy it but it's nothing shocking.
