Unbuckle Your Belt And Pull Up A Chair. It's The Spiciest, Sauciest, Most Rib-Sticking Plum Yet.

Recipe for disaster:

Celebrity chef Stanley Chipotle comes to Trenton to participate in a barbecue cook-off and loses his head --literally.

Throw in some spice:

Bail bonds office worker Lula is witness to the crime, and the only one she’ll talk to is Trenton cop, Joe Morelli.

Pump up the heat:

Chipotle’s sponsor is offering a million dollar reward to anyone who can provide information leading to the capture of the killers.

Stir the pot:

Lula recruits bounty hunter Stephanie Plum to help her find the killers and collect the moolah.

Add a secret ingredient:

Stephanie Plum’s Grandma Mazur. Enough said.

Bring to a boil:

Stephanie Plum is working overtime tracking felons for the bonds office at night and snooping for security expert Carlos Manoso, A.K.A. Ranger, during the day. Can Stephanie hunt down two killers, a traitor, five skips, keep her grandmother out of the sauce, solve Ranger’s problems and not jump his bones?


Habanero hot. So good you’ll want seconds.

I picked this book up because Challenge/series

What I liked the Most? New Character is a hoot

What I liked the Least? The whole love triangle is getting stale

Review: This book had some laugh out loud moments, but that does not begin to make up for the truly boring phoned in writing - formula is too kind a word to describe this book, which features the same old, same old and then some. Don't get me wrong - I love the running gags, bang cars & the buick, but please this was just sad. The lovable laughable characters are back and full of vinegar, it's just so one note, and so repetitive.

Recommended to: I really wouldn't

Best Quote: "I'm more impressed with the fart."

Challenges: 100+, Stephanie Plum
