Excerpt from Takedown Twenty, a Stephanie Plum novel

Make sure you check out my latest release, Endless Change, along with some other popular new releases.

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme. Read the rules and more teasers at The Purple Booker. Anyone can play along.

I was trying to decide whether to feature the book I finished today, or the one I started! I decided on the one that I just started on, Takedown Twenty, a Stephanie Plum novel by Janet Evanovich. In case you haven’t met Stephanie Plum, she is a scrappy bail bondsman who gets tangled up in a variety of tight situations. Additionally, she is always stuck choosing between the two men in her life, Ranger and Morelli. These books are chockful of fun characters, and the audiobooks are very entertaining. I have only just started this book, and don’t yet know what significance the disappearing/reappearing giraffe has…

“I was afraid it might have been the ‘shrooms on my pizza last night what was making me see things. I mean it’s not every day you see a giraffe running down the street.”

Janet Evanovich, Takedown Twenty

Stephanie Plum has her sights set on catching a notorious mob boss. If she doesn’t take him down, he may take her out.
 
New Jersey bounty hunter Stephanie Plum knows better than to mess with family. But when powerful mobster Salvatore “Uncle Sunny” Sunucchi goes on the lam in Trenton, it’s up to Stephanie to find him. Uncle Sunny is charged with murder for running over a guy (twice), and nobody wants to turn him in—not his poker buddies, not his bimbo girlfriend, not his two right-hand men, Shorty and Moe. Even Trenton’s hottest cop, Joe Morelli, has skin in the game, because—just Stephanie’s luck—the godfather is his actual godfather. And while Morelli understands that the law is the law, his old-world grandmother, Bella, is doing everything she can to throw Stephanie off the trail.
 
It’s not just Uncle Sunny giving Stephanie the run-around. Security specialist Ranger needs her help to solve the bizarre death of a top client’s mother, a woman who happened to play bingo with Stephanie’s Grandma Mazur. Before Stephanie knows it, she’s working side by side with Ranger and Grandma at the senior center, trying to catch a killer on the loose—and the bingo balls are not rolling in their favor. 
 
With bullet holes in her car, henchmen on her tail, and a giraffe named Kevin running wild in the streets of Trenton, Stephanie will have to up her game for the ultimate takedown.
