ARE YOU LISTENING? TOP SECRET TWENTY-ONE: A REVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

WELCOME TO BOOKIN' WITH BINGO'S" 
ARE YOU LISTENING? DAY"  
I AM EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE TODAY'S  
AUDIO BOOK CHOICE.....
*******************************************
TOP SECRET TWENTY-ONE
A Stephanie Plum Novel
 BY JANET EVANOVICH
NARRATED BY LORELEI KING
  
ABOUT THE AUDIO BOOK:
Trenton, New Jersey’s favorite used-car dealer, Jimmy Poletti, was caught selling a lot more than used cars out of his dealerships. Now he’s out on bail and has missed his date in court, and bounty hunter Stephanie Plum is looking to bring him in. Leads are quickly turning into dead ends, and all too frequently into dead bodies. Even Joe Morelli, the city’s hottest cop, is struggling to find a clue to the suspected killer’s whereabouts. These are desperate times, and they call for desperate measures. So Stephanie is going to have to do something she really doesn’t want to do: protect former hospital security guard and general pain in her behind Randy Briggs. Briggs was picking up quick cash as Poletti’s bookkeeper and knows all his boss’s dirty secrets. Now Briggs is next on Poletti’s list of people to put six feet under.

To top things off, Ranger—resident security expert and Stephanie’s greatest temptation—has been the target of an assassination plot. He’s dodged the bullet this time, but if Ranger wants to survive the next attempt on his life, he’ll have to enlist Stephanie’s help and reveal a bit more of his mysterious past.

Death threats, highly trained assassins, highly untrained assassins, and Stark Street being overrun by a pack of feral Chihuahuas are all in a day’s work for Stephanie Plum. The real challenge is dealing with her Grandma Mazur’s wild bucket list. A boob job and getting revenge on Joe Morelli’s Grandma Bella can barely hold a candle to what’s number one on the list—but that’s top secret.

PRAISE FOR TOP SECRET TWENTY-ONE:
“Janet Evanovich delivers another hilarious entry in her Stephanie Plum series with Top Secret Twenty-One.”—Associated Press

“Evanovich doesn’t disappoint. . . . [She] weaves setting, family, romance and crime to pull the plot of Top Secret Twenty-One forward.”—Bookreporter

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Janet Evanovich is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Stephanie Plum series, the Lizzy and Diesel series, twelve romance novels, the Alexandra Barnaby novels and Trouble Maker graphic novel, and How I Write: Secrets of a Bestselling Author, as well as the Fox and O’Hare series with co-author Lee Goldberg.

SOME OTHER BOOKS BY JANET EVANOVICH:

MY THOUGHTS/REVIEW:
If you are a fan of Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum novels, than you won't be disappointed in the latest entry TOP SECRET TWENTY-ONE. I haven't read all of the series but enough to know what to expect. I do think that the narrative flows better in this one than the last one. I also found a great deal of humor in the story so that it was quite entertaining. The characters really had no surprises but favorites like Grandma are there and as always add to the story that touch of familiarity that makes it an easy to like tale. I laughed more on this one than many others and still like the way Evanovich's characters have the type of personality traits that are true to form and nicely developed. I think TOP SECRET TWENTY-ONE is the kind of audio book especially to be able to just kick back with and really enjoy a relaxing good time with old friends.

I haven't read any in the series but my aunt has told me how much she enjoys the Stephanie Plum books. You really piqued my interest with your review, especially because you thought the humor really made it entertaining.

GREAT review and post. I too am interested in this one mainly from your review and most of the books I've read lately have little humor ... it's time for a change.

The Stephanie Plum books are fun to read and who wouldn't love to meet Ranger IRL? I know I would. This sounds like another good one. I'm ready.
