First off, I want to say that I have FINALLY caught up on the Stephanie Plum series! It has been a private goal but I have finally made it!

Ok on to the review! Normally, these books are about Stephanie and Lula running around catching those who have missed court and returning them to jail to be rebonded. This story deviated from that A LOT. It was almost as if Janet Evanovich forgot that Stephanie worked as a bail bond enforcer, honestly, it appeared to be an afterthought.

This story finds Stephanie and Lula working in a deli that is owned by the same mobster who owns Vinnie's business. We spend most of the story in the deli and looking for men who have either been kidnapped or beamed up by aliens...depends on if you ask Lula or not. We also see a reappearance of the otherworldly character Wulf. I am not sure why Evanovich feels the need to bring these strange characters into Stephanie's everyday life but I am sure she has a purpose.

That being said, this was not one of my favorite books in the series but Janet has left an opening for book 26 where Grandma has traveled off to meet a new beau. It should make for an interesting read.
