Book Banter -- Ten Big Ones
Title: Ten Big Ones
Author: Janet Evanovich
Length: 352 pages
Genre: mystery/chick lit
Plot Basics: The bumbling bounty hunter Stephanie Plum takes on a street gang in this novel. Her on-again-off-again cop boyfriend Joe Morelli thinks this case is far too dangerous and after some close encounters with gang members, Stephanie agrees and goes into hiding. But the only place she can think of that's safe is the secret lair of Ranger, her fellow bounty hunter who happens to be out of town.
Banter Points: As always, very funny.
Bummer Points: This one seemed a little over the top (ok, a little further over the top than some of the others) with Stephanie taking on a gang.
Word Nerd recommendation: This was a great airplane book. Actually, Word Nerd has read the majority of this series on airplanes. Might be a good beach read too.
