First I have to apologize for not finding this book cover here on Booklikes. When I looked on Amazon, it turns out the only edition they have is not the one I have, so I decided not to bother adding it here. The edition I have apparently doesn't exist anymore, which is weird, considering I got it only a few weeks ago, but I suppose it's no big deal.

 

I just finished reading Smoking Seventeen, by Janet Evanovich, which as you can probably guess is the seventeenth book in the series about Stephanie Plum, bounty hunter.

In this book, Stephanie is helping her boss Vinnie to find out who is burying dead bodies where his bounty hunter business used to lie - it is now being rebuilt, or at least that's the assumption.

Stephanie has a new or almost new problem to deal with too - her off and on boyfriend Joe Morelli's grandmother has put the evil eye on her. In this case it means Stephanie is going to start smelling like cabbage, get boils all over her face and get 'vordo' which apparenty means becoming sexually insatiable. Unfortunately, it looks as if grandma Bella is actually successful. Stephanie does get sauerkraut in her hair when she's with Lula getting lunch and a huge zit appears on her forehead looking a lot like a boil waiting to happen and - for whatever reason - she does experience a change in her libido.

There isn't all that much more to add to my earlier reviews of these books. The book was funny. I love that, because I really, really need to laugh right now.

The only downside was that this one was a bit predictable. It was really easy to guess who the killer was, but since the actual criminal case isn't all there is to a book like this, it doesn't matter too much.
