Click here to read reviewer Bobby Blades' take on Twelve Sharp.

Fans of this Stephanie Plum series will delight in its latest addition. Twelve Sharp definitely deviates from the usual crazy bond cases into far more serious situations (and emotions). For all those fans of Evanovichís laugh-out-loud humor, not to worry; she has brilliantly found a place for plenty of that as well.

As Stephanie is innocently going about her usual bounty-hunting craziness, she is confronted by a stalking, feline Ranger-wannabe claiming to be his wife. Things continue to go downhill as Rangerís daughter is kidnapped, apparently by Ranger himself. This all seems way too weird and way too messy to be Rangerís doing, and Stephanie begins to investigate.

Things really begin to heat up (as they often do for Stephanie) as the mystery begins to unfold. It all turns out to be far more complex and dangerous (physically and emotionally) than anything Stephanie has encountered to date. With Ranger playing a central role in this novel, readers, as well as Stephanie, learn a lot more about the mystery man. With emotions running wild, will Stephanie finally figure out where her heart truly lies?

Lorelei King does an amazing job narrating the book and bringing the characters to their true-to-life form. After reading the first eleven books in the series, I had clear voices in my head for each of them; however I quickly embraced these new, yet familiar, voices.

Also included is an intriguing interview with Janet Evanovich. Listeners learn a little about the history and how the series has developed, some intentional plot decisions (neither Stephanie nor Janet are aging throughout this series), and some insight into Janet and her fans.
