Eccola. E' lei.. La star indiscussa delle risate che torna a colpire.. Non ne uscirete incolumi!! :D
Fortuna che al mondo esistono scrittrici come la Evanovich! Risate, grandi personaggi a cui è impossibile non affezionarsi (ho visto poca Nonna Mazur in questo volume eh!!! *Compensata da tanto Ranger :33*), e situazioni a limite dell'inverosimile: dopo otto libri con la stessa ricetta, non sono ancora riuscita a stancarmene e anzi!! To the nines sarà presto mio! :3
[E PER LA MISERIA.. STEPHANIE/RANGER. Non so se rendo!!]
He climbed into the backseat of the CR-V and leaned forward.
"What are you, part golden retriever?" Lula asked. "You are breathing on me. Sit back in your seat. Put your seat belt on. And if you start drooling, you're outta here".
He had his hands planted on his hips. "LEt's get back to the snakes, okay? You have any idea eho left them?"
"I guess I could make a list".
"Jesus", he said. "You have got a list. Not one or two people. whole list.You have a whole list of people who might want to leave snakes on your doorknob".
"The last couple of days have been sort of busy".
She was lying. She'd waited too long to say no. And now spots of color were blooming on her cheeks. She was possibly the worst liar I'd ever seen. She was a disgrace to Burg women. Burg women were great liars. No wonder Fotty had to move to South River.
"NOW what are you thinking?" he asked.
"I was wondering if you were human"
"What are the other choices?"
I knocked back my glass of wine. "I didn't have anything specifically in mind".
Grandma was waiting for me when I walked through the door. "Who's the guy in the cool truck?"
"That man is so hot", Grandma said. "If I was twenty years younger..."
"If you were twenty years younger you'd still be twenty years too old", my father said.

Rido da sola, questo giustifica le quattro stelle.
Non è alta letteratura, ma immancabilmente ti strappa una risata o ti fa spuntare un sorriso, allora anche questa è letteratura che fa bene allo spirito!
Janet Evanovich riesce a tenere un buon ritmo in ogni avventura; le indagini della cacciatrice di taglie sono un pretesto (riuscito) per ritrovare il piccolo mondo della protagonista, con i suoi stralunati personaggi fissi, cui non si può non affezionarsi, ma anche nuove coloratissime figure di contorno.

My Review: Hard Eight is another great audiobook by Janet Evanovich. Evanovich’s main character in this series, Stephanie Plum is an accident waiting to happen. As mentioned in previous reviews of this series, Stephanie is a former lingerie buyer that fell on hard times and took a job working for her cousin as a bounty hunter. She’s not the greatest bounty hunter, that’s for sure, but she’s definitely the most entertaining.
In Hard Eight, Stephanie finds herself helping her parent’s neighbor, Mabel. Mabel is heartbroken that she can’t get a hold of her granddaughter Evelyn and Evelyn’s daughter, Annie Soder. After a recent divorce from her husband Steven, Evelyn life has been bumpy and now she’s missing.
Stephanie follows Evelyn all over the “burg” and Trenton, trying to find her and Annie or a reason why she’s hiding. Between Stephanie and her normal crew of Lula, Ranger and Joe Morelli, things get interesting. Let’s not forget Evelyn’s divorce attorney, Albert Kloughn. Kloughn is another hilarious character and really added to the dynamics between the bunch.
Kloughn becomes more of a player in the story when he helps Stephanie try to bring in Andy Bender, a FTA. Kloughn ends up with a broken nose and two black eyes. He’s a real sight, but still continues to beg Steph to tag along on her adventures.
In the end… Kloughn hooks up with Valarie, Stephanie’s sister after a strange turn of events. Especially since Kloughn resembles the Pillsbury Doughboy. Oh and remember that “debt” that Stephanie owes Ranger… He cashes in!
I’m not sure where I stand with Stephanie’s relationships… and at this point, the audiobook doesn’t steer us in either direction. I still have a soft spot in my heart for Morelli… and I really want to see him and Stephanie together. Then again, Ranger, the superhero, is a close second.
This audiobook is amazing… Steph’s car gets blown up by a bear, she is stalked and attacked by a rabbit and dead president’s make an appearance. I’m tellin’ ya, I love Evanovich’s mind. I found myself laughing out loud many, many times!
Narrator Review: Lorelei King is awesome. She never disappoints and gives the characters such distinct voices. I love her enthusiasm and the personality she puts behind every character.
