Twelve Sharp (Stephanie Plum, #12) by Janet Evanovich

Welcome to Trenton, New Jersey, where bounty hunter Stephanie Plum's life is about to implode in Janet Evanovich's wildest, hottest novel yet!
While chasing down the usual cast of miscreants and weirdos, Stephanie discovers that a crazed woman is stalking her.

The woman dresses in black, carries a 9mm Glock, and has a bad attitude and a mysterious connection to dark and dangerous Carlos Manoso …street name, Ranger.

The action turns deadly serious, and Stephanie goes from hunting skips to hunting a murderer.

Ranger needs Stephanie for more reasons than he can say. And now, the two are working together to find a killer, rescue a missing child, and stop a lunatic from raising the body count. When Stephanie Plum and Ranger get too close for comfort, vice cop Joe Morelli (her on-again, off-again boyfriend) steps in. Will the ticking clock stop at the stroke of twelve…or will a stranger in the wind find a way to stop Stephanie Plum…forever?

It felt great to be back in New Jersey with Stephanie Plum, Lula, Connie, Ranger and of course Joe! This book had to have been the funniest book in the series yet. I absolutely loved it.

After the more serieous reads (the non-fiction) books that I've been reading as of late I felt that I had to read something to brighten up my life. So of course I turned to my favourite series knowing I would have a laugh out loud time reading it.

I honestly thing that Janet Evanovich is one of the best writers in this genres. The characters and the story were even more hilarous than the last book. I mean Grandma Mazur joined a band with Lula, and Sally Sweet and wore an outfit that was reminiscent of Madonna in the 80's and 90's (Grandma is somewhere in her 70's or 80's mind you). She also decides to open the casket at a murder victims viewing which in turn caused a riot of epic proportions.

This book had it all for me. Humour, adventure and sexual innuendos between Stephanie and Ranger and Stephanie and Joe (I'm team Joe). Of course Rex the hamster made an appearence and so did Bob the big Orange dog. Ranger's daughter was in it (She's just like her Daddy in terms of Spirit), and there was a creepy psycho that wanted Stephanie (she sure does attract the weirdos doesn't she?). And she also tells Joe a little something she's been struggling with. FINALLY :D

So as you can probably tell I LOVED the new enstallment in the series and am currently working on the next book Lean Mean Thirteen in between a bunch of other books. If you for some reason haven't read this series I strongly suggest that you do so. Right now. If your look for something funny they're perfect. Also they aren't just for the ladies Mr. Turning The Pages read the first one last year and loved it. He thinks Stephanie and Grandma Mazur are a hoot!
