If there is one person Stephanie never wants to collect on it’s the mysterious Ranger. When he’s suspected of murder, he skips bail, determined to figure it out and clear his own name. Her arch nemesis Joyce is assigned the job and insists on following Stephanie, convinced she knows where Ranger is. Unfortunately Joyce isn’t the only one and in typical Plum style, she quickly finds herself on the receiving end of a lot of attention. Never knowing who will show up in her apartment next on a midnight visit, she also copes with Grandma Mazur moving in for a while. Then there is Bob.
I’ve had a lot of pleasure reading these books one after the other and number 6 in the series is another good installment. Stephanie makes me alternately shake my head and laugh out loud, she is just so human. Her escapades and penchant for getting into and out of trouble make for a very funny read and they are hugely entertaining. I love the interplay between her, Morelli and Ranger and her attraction to each is really well written. Her family, as usual, are hysterical and Grandma Mazur makes me cringe but laugh.
I felt the plot was a little more twisty than usual but it wasn’t too hard to keep up and there were a couple of times I really thought that was it for Stephanie. Yet she gladly prevails and I can’t wait to read book 7!
