Stephanie Plum may not be the best bounty hunter in beautiful downtown Trenton, but she's pretty darn good at turning bad situations her way ... and she always gets her man. In "To The Nines", her cousin Vinnie (who's her boss) has posted bail on Samuel Singh, an illegal immigrant. When the elusive, Mr. Singh goes missing, Stephanie is on the case.

The best thing about Evanovich's Plum series is the consistency of characters and timeline. With every book, Stephanie's life progresses with little backtracking or inconsistency. Evanovich does a great job catching the reader up, especially if someone is jumping into the series in midstream and hasn't read books one through eight. Reading the entire series is helpful, but not necessary.
Even though I am irked about Stephanie's relationships with Morelli and Ranger, I appreciate the growth in them. I don't think it's a spoiler alert to say that at the end of To the Nines Stephanie drops calling Morelli by his last name and moves onto calling him Joe. Is that a subtle hint that she is ready to get more serious? She did just move back in with him and gave up her apartment to her sister. Speaking of Valerie, she just had a baby (out of wedlock) and that definitely has Stephanie's biological clock ticking a little louder. Enough of that. Onto the plot:
The bounty hunting part of Stephanie's life takes more of a back seat in To the Nines. This time around, she is the hunted. Someone is sending her creepy messages coupled with a calling card of one rose and one carnation. It's the same message sent to several other victims. Could she be next on this serial killer's list? This time Ranger and Joe make a concerted effort to protect Stephanie as she tries to figure out who is capable of getting so close to her they can take a lock of her hair? ( )

Stephanie seeks missing visa bond and "murder game"
  ritaer | Jul 10, 2021 |
One of the better ones in the series which is surprising without much of Grandma in it. Humorous with Lulu on a meat/bacon diet and even Connie helping on the hunt. Has to stay at Morelli’s place for safety. Sister Victoria is hugely pregnant til ending. Traveling to Vegas by plane was funny. Ranger’s Merry Men get hurt trying to protect her from a flower giving stalker. ( )

I have read all of the Stephanie Plum novels so far and I just love these books. They are a very easy read and are something to read when you just wanna relax after a long day. They are just so humorous and I love all the characters, especially Grandma Mazur. It has a little bit of everything thrown in, while still being lighthearted.

I would recommend these books to anybody. ( )

Synopsis: 'Stephanie's cousin and boss, Vinnie, has written the visa bond for Samuel Singh, an Indian immigrant working temporarily in New Jersey. Now he has gone missing, and his landlord, Mrs. Apusenja, insists that Vinnie track him down. She claims Singh is engaged to her daughter, Nonnie, but Nonnie appears more concerned for her dog, "Boo," who went missing at the same time. Partnered with Ranger, Stephanie begins with TriBro, Singh's workplace, owned by three brothers, Andrew, Bart and Clyde Cone. While Andrew is helpful and Clyde is very enthusiastic about the case, Bart Cone gives Stephanie the creeps. Her boyfriend, Joe Morelli, does a background check and finds that Bart Cone was a suspect in the unsolved murder of a woman named Lillian Paressi. Circumstantial evidence tied him to the crime scene, but the indictment was dismissed when the DNA evidence proved negative. After returning home from TriBro, Stephanie is unnerved to find a bouquet of white carnations and red roses, accompanied by photographs of a murdered woman. She also receives some rather creepy emails. Stephanie only gets more nervous when she questions Lillian Paressi's friend, who remembers that Lillian also received a bouquet of carnations and roses. Stephanie sets out for Vegas, accompanied by her sidekick Lula and Vinnie's secretary, Connie Rossoli. They rescue Boo from the home of a woman Singh was living with, but Stephanie gets a call from Morelli, who was informed by the Vegas police that Singh's body was found in a car at the airport, shot execution style. Afraid that the "Roses and Carnations Killer" has followed them to Nevada, Stephanie and Connie quickly return to New Jersey; Lula, afraid to fly again, decides to drive cross-country with Boo for company. Ranger assigns his security company's employees to keep Stephanie safe, but two of them are badly injured while following her around: Tank, Ranger's right-hand man, suffers a broken leg when a fugitive jumps out his window and lands on him; later, when Stephanie's pregnant sister Valerie goes into labor, her water breaks over the second man, Cal, who faints dead away and suffers a concussion hitting his head on the floor. Stephanie's new niece, her older sister Valerie's daughter with Albert Kloughn, is born. She is named Lisa.

Stepping outside the hospital to get some air, Stephanie is accosted by a teenager with a gun, who calls himself "Fisher Cat" and tells her she is the prize of a "game" - the winner is the one who succeeds in killing her. Stephanie disarms Fisher Cat with a groin kick, but is knocked unconscious by his stun gun. When she regains consciousness, Fisher Cat is dead beside her, shot twice through the head. Morelli examines Fisher Cat's laptop and finds that the game is run through an online chat room, by "The Webmaster."'
Review: Good plot, hysterical situations, and a lot of fun to read. ( )

Mijn naam is Stephanie Plum en ik ben geboren en getogen in Trenton, om precies te zijn in Chambersburg, een wijk waar het mannelijk deel van de bevolking zich bij voorkeur bezighoudt met het verslinden van gebak en spek, en met het kweken van vetrollen.
