My Rating: 5 Stars + (ARC)
Stephanie Plum breaks the rules, flirts with disaster, and shows who’s boss in the latest smash hit from #1 New York Times bestselling author Janet Evanovich.
Monday mornings aren’t supposed to be fun, but they should be predictable. However, on this particular Monday, Stephanie Plum knows that something is amiss when she turns up for work at Vinnie’s Bail Bonds to find that longtime office manager Connie Rosolli, who is as reliable as the tides in Atlantic City, hasn’t shown up.
Stephanie’s worst fears are confirmed when she gets a call from Connie’s abductor. He says he will only release her in exchange for a mysterious coin that a recently murdered man left as collateral for his bail. Unfortunately, this coin, which should be in the office—just like Connie—is nowhere to be found.
The quest to discover the coin, learn its value, and save Connie will require the help of Stephanie’s Grandma Mazur, her best pal Lula, her boyfriend Morelli, and hunky security expert Ranger. As they get closer to unraveling the reasons behind Connie’s kidnapping, Connie’s captor grows more threatening and soon Stephanie has no choice but to throw caution to the wind, follow her instincts, and go rogue.
Full of surprises, thrills, and humor, Going Rogue reveals a new side of Stephanie Plum, and shows Janet Evanovich at her scorching, riotous best.
Buy the Book
I adore Janet Evanovich and her Stephanie Plum series! Have read them all and would not miss a book.
GOING ROGUE has it all! Fun (laugh out loud), adventure, action, and characters you feel like are your family. Get this gem on your TBR list.
Janet Evanovich returns following The Recovery Agent: A Novel (Gabriela Rose #1) with her popular Stephanie Plum series #29—GOING ROGUE. Stephanie and the gang must get creative to find one of their own who has been kidnapped in this thrills-by-the-minute installment!
Stephanie, Lulu, Vinnie, Grandma Mazur, Joe, Ranger, and the gang are concerned about their missing office manager, Connie Rosolli. She is nowhere to be found. Things are not the same without her.
They receive a strange call from the abductor, who says he will only release her in exchange for a mysterious coin that a recently murdered man left as collateral for his bail. Unfortunately, this coin, which should be in the office—just like Connie—is nowhere to be found.
Things get complicated as they search for this coin and find out millions of dollars are at stake and the bad guys are on their trail.
However, no worries, while hunting down the bad guys, there are plenty of donuts, chicken, Plum's mom's cooking, fun, laughs, danger, blown-up cars, and funerals to attend.
I loved this one! The bitcoins are quite fascinating and popular these days, and as always, I would not miss a Janet Evanovich/Stephanie Plum book! I always buy the audiobook and love the narrator, Lorelei King.
Stephanie is growing up and getting smarter. In this installment, she might be getting closer to Joe. (I am a big fan of Joe, but love Ranger too). Keep them coming! We need some laughs, and Plum always provides hours of entertainment and comfort.
Thank you to #AtriaBooks for my beautiful hardcover copy and #NetGalley for a gifted eARC to read, review, and enjoy.
