Hardcore Twenty Four Summary:

Trouble comes in bunches for Stephanie Plum. First, professional grave robber and semi-professional loon, Simon Diggery, won’t let her take him in until she agrees to care for his boa constrictor, Ethel. Stephanie’s main qualification for babysitting an extremely large snake is that she owns a stun gun—whether that’s for use on the wandering serpent or the petrified neighbors remains to be seen.

Events take a dark turn when headless bodies start appearing across town. At first, it’s just corpses from a funeral home and the morgue that have had the heads removed. But when a homeless man is murdered and dumped behind a church Stephanie knows that she’s the only one with a prayer of catching this killer.

If all that’s not enough, Diesel’s back in town. The 6-foot-tall, the blonde-haired hunk is a man who accepts no limits—that includes locked doors, closed windows and underwear. Trenton’s hottest cop, Joe Morelli isn’t pleased with this unexpected arrival nor is Ranger, the high-powered security consultant who has his own plans for Stephanie.

As usual, Jersey’s favorite bounty hunter is stuck in the middle with more questions than answers. What’s the deal with Grandma Mazur’s latest online paramour? Who is behind the startling epidemic of mutilated corpses? And is the enigmatic Diesel’s sudden appearance a coincidence or the cause of recent deadly events?

My Thoughts on Hardcore Twenty-Four:

Stephanie Plum is at it again. I don’t know how she keeps her job since she is so bad at it. This is a quick fluff read like always.

This time not only does Stephanie have the hots for both Morelli and Ranger, but fans of the series and Janet Evanovich will recognize that Diesel rolls back into town.

I’ve read all of the books in this series. This one was a bit more lackluster than previous books. I’m not sure why I keep reading them. I always say I’m going to give up but I don’t. I just want to see who she ends up with already!!!

Lulu is still dressing in ways that she totally should not. I shudder at the mental images in my head. Grandma is still a wild spitfire however this time she was even tamer.

This book read like even the author was tired of this series. I’ve given up long ago purchasing the books and instead check them out of the library.

Have you read the Stephanie Plum series? What are your thoughts on it?
