What Explosive Eighteen is about: Stephanie runs into a bit of trouble when someone slips a picture into her bag on the airplane home from Hawaii. All hell breaks loose and she can't figure out what's so important about the picture and why does someone want to kill her for it!
Why I wanted to listen to this one: I really like the narrator and she does a bang up job with all the different voices. She has the ability to make me overlook how stupid Stephanie can be sometimes!

- The plot line in this book was actually pretty interesting. I have to be honest and say that I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this one. I've often thought that past stories were so implausible and at times a bit mundane. I loved the twist to the photograph that Evanovich came up with...makes me wonder if that's something that is being done right now. Yes, I'm being cryptic..if not I'd give away too much!
- Things are starting to heat up between Stephanie, Ranger, and Joe. I think before long the author is going to have her make a decision. My gut tells me that she's going to end up with Joe.
- I keep coming back to this series because I laugh at Grandma's antics and how Lula has these things that just pop out of her mouth and they never fail to make me smile.
- I can drive along and not really have to pay close attention to the story and still be able to follow along. I enjoy that aspect immensely as I sometimes have the tendency to let my mind wander once I'm in the car.
Bring on Naughty (that's what I would call it if the author asked my opinion) Nineteen....I'm loving this series on audio!

I really love how these books are narrated...its a go-to choice for our road trips. And Gramma Mazur is hilariousReplyDelete
Sounds like a fun read! I have YET to read any of her works!! Shame on me! lol!ReplyDelete
I love the titles in this series!ReplyDelete
Sometimes Evanovich has a contest to name the next book. Naughty Nineteen would be fabulousReplyDelete
I've got to get with Stephanie Plum one of these days! especially because there's nothing more fun than a good triangle! :--)ReplyDelete
I got a little tired of the series in print - maybe I need to switch to audio. Naughty Nineteen is a great suggestion!ReplyDelete
I am going to listen to "Naughty Nineteen" whenever it comes out. And I agree with you I think Joe is going to be chosen. Just choose already! ;o)ReplyDelete
You sense a decision? I hope so, I sure hope so...arghh, want the book now! But it is reservedReplyDelete
I was just at the library today and I really wish that I would have grabbed the 4th book from the library. I really enjoyed the first book in this series and am anxious to continue on (especially after reading your thoughts on 17 & 18).ReplyDelete
I think I stopped listening to these audio books around #9 or 10, but they were fun. Glad u liked this one Staci.ReplyDelete
I can't believe this series is up to 18. I have only read the first book...ReplyDelete
Didn't realize there was an 18th novel. If Stephanie chooses Joe then the romantic suspense in her books might come to a standstill! I might try this latest one to see if they're different from the others.ReplyDelete
I refuse to read another one until she chooses! I'm two behind already.ReplyDelete
I'm glad to hear there are some new things going on in 18. I'm three behind and just need some incentive to keep going. Thanks. Audio is a great idea.ReplyDelete
