Stephanie Plum32 books in series
In this rip-roaring, madcap series, best-selling author Janet Evanovich follows the only-in-Jersey adventures of Stephanie Plum, bounty hunter.
Divorced and laid off, Stephanie Plum “forces” her cousin Vinnie to give her a job as a bounty hunter in her hometown of Trenton, New Jersey. Meeting her zany family and friends, cagey criminals (including local mobsters), and tangled love interests - while trying to keep up with the twists and turns of her chases - make for fun, pause-resistant listens. (Insider tip: Give the titles a listen in numerical order. Spoiler: Stephanie evolves.)
Narrator Lorelei King’s got New Jersey bounty hunter Stephanie Plum’s number! King delivers screwball dialogue and wild-and-wacky antics as smoothly and naturally as, well, a used car salesman delivers his shtick. Her excellent timing and spot-on “Joisey” accents ooze attitude and eye rolls - winning fans and accolades, including an Earphones Award for four installments: Eleven on Top, Twelve Sharp, Smokin’ 17, and Takedown 20. Though King performs the lion’s share of this series, which includes over 20 novels plus novellas and short story collections, she occasionally shares narrator duties with C. J. Critt, Lori Petty, and Debi Mazer.
In addition to the Stephanie Plum series, Janet Evanovich is the author of two other mystery series, Knight and Moon and Lizzy and Diesel; the Alexandra Barnaby thrillers; and a dozen romance novels.
