Review: Hard Eight

Hard EightBook Review
4 out of 5 stars to Hard Eight, the 8th book in the “Stephanie Plum” cozy mystery series, written in 2002 by Janet Evanovich. OK… so I cannot figure out for the life of me how Ms. Evanovich comes up with the hilarity in these characters. It’s absolutely amazing to see the varying degrees of lunatics Stephanie has to deal with. In this book, it’s less about one particular mystery, although there is a driving case she is working on. There are about 10 skips (bail jumpers) she’s trying to chase, all the while solve little crimes and issues throughout the lives of her friends, family, and the people she’s trying to capture whom she takes a liking to. She’s in the wrong profession, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. It gives me a regular dose of humor to enjoy. The main story, about a kidnapped child, though not funny, is handled quite well. You never know who to root for in these books. Sometimes I wanna see Stephanie put in these bad situations… I mean who wouldn’t want to watch Lula trying to take control and become her own bail bonds woman.
