Janet Evanovich: High Five (Rating: 8)

I just finished reading High Five by Janet Evanovich (quite probably the best Stephanie Plum novel to this point in the series).

This time around the story does not center upon the fugitive Stephanie is trying to bring in (the word trying here meaning "trying, but not succeeding as easily as you'd think").

Instead, this story hits a little closer to home when her Uncle Fred disappears and the family asks her to snoop around to find him.

This book is filled with the usual cast of unusual characters that make these books so much fun to read: Stephanie's parents, Grandma Mazur, Lula, Joe Morelli, Ricardo Carlos Manoso (AKA: Ranger), Rex (the real man in her life), Vinnie Plum, Carl Costanza, and the ever-expected "soon to be scrap metal" (a phrase which here means "cars that get too close to Stephanie").

Yep! They're all here, ready to take you on a wild ride.

(Not that kind of wild ride! Get your mind out of the gutter! Okay—Joe & Ranger are probably thinking along those lines, but . . . oh . . . never mind!)
