To the Nines by Janet Evanovich
Stephanie Plum, a mediocre bounty hunter in New Jersey, is trying to find a recent bond skipper when she happens across a killer. As she is questioning a potential lead with curvaceous ex-ho Lula, the lead gets shot right in the head. Plum's on-again-off-again boyfriend and cop Morelli is concerned for her and between him and fellow bounty hunter Ranger the vow to bodyguard her while trying to find who the killer is. Hunting the killer takes Stephanie to Vegas with Lula and Connie, which is a bunch of laughs.
As usual, this book is a lot of fun. The characters are great and the banter between them even better. You can't help but smile as you read the books in this series.
First Line: "My name is Stephanie Plum and I was born and raised in the Chambersburg section of Trenton, where the top male activities are scarfing pastries and pork rinds and growing love handles."
