Sandie's Elevator Pitch - Notorious Nineteen

While I'm at Bouchercon, Sandie has an elevator pitch for you! Thank you, Sandie!

This is what I’ve uncovered to be the plot to NOTORIOUS 19 …
New Jersey bounty hunter Stephanie Plum is certain of three truths: People don’t just vanish into thin air. Never anger old people. And don’t do what Tiki tells you to do.

After a slow summer of chasing low-level skips for her cousin Vinnie’s bail bonds agency, Stephanie Plum finally lands an assignment that could put her checkbook back in the black. Geoffrey Cubbin, facing trial for embezzling millions from Trenton’s premier assisted-living facility, has mysteriously vanished from the hospital after an emergency appendectomy. Now it’s on Stephanie to track down the con man. Unfortunately, Cubbin has disappeared without a trace, a witness, or his money-hungry wife. Rumors are stirring that he must have had help with the daring escape . . . or that maybe he never made it out of his room alive. Since the hospital staff’s lips seem to be tighter than the security, and it’s hard for Stephanie to blend in to assisted living, Stephanie’s Grandma Mazur goes in undercover. But when a second felon goes missing from the same hospital, Stephanie is forced into working side by side with Trenton’s hottest cop, Joe Morelli, in order to crack the case.

I admit to being a couple books behind in the series, but when is Stephanie going to choose between Joe and Ranger?  Maybe it’s Bob the dog who’s captured her heart?  Remember, not every book needs to be award winning literature to be fun!

I've been hooked on the Stephanie Plum novels since I read "One for the Money". Some have been much better than others, but all of them are good for an afternoon escape. I totally agree... not all books have to be award winners to be enjoyed. Stephanie and the gang are like old friends. They're not perfect but always interesting. Thanks for the review and the reminder of the newest title!
