Turbo Twenty-Three: A Stephanie Plum Novel Kindle Edition
|New from||Used from|
Larry Virgil skipped out on his latest court date after he was arrested for hijacking an eighteen-wheeler full of premium bourbon. Fortunately for bounty hunter Stephanie Plum, Larry is just stupid enough to attempt almost the exact same crime again. Only this time he flees the scene, leaving behind a freezer truck loaded with Bogart ice cream and a dead body—frozen solid and covered in chocolate and chopped pecans.
As fate would have it, Stephanie’s mentor and occasional employer, Ranger, needs her to go undercover at the Bogart factory to find out who’s putting their employees on ice and sabotaging the business. It’s going to be hard for Stephanie to keep her hands off all that ice cream, and even harder for her to keep her hands off Ranger. It’s also going to be hard to explain to Trenton’s hottest cop, Joe Morelli, why she is spending late nights with Ranger, late nights with Lula and Randy Briggs—who are naked and afraid—and late nights keeping tabs on Grandma Mazur and her new fella. Stephanie Plum has a lot on her plate, but for a girl who claims to have “virtually no marketable skills,” these are the kinds of sweet assignments she does best.

Lula says, "Italians can grow boob, but they're deficient in booty."
She also says, "You got the woman card but it's useless on account of you're thin and white. I'm a plus-size black woman. Bam! That's three cards. It's like I hit the political correctness jackpot."
The white woman who (supposedly) wrote this, should be ashamed of herself.
In the end, surprise, surprise, the murders are all about meth. The one high point in the story is Stephanie finally screws Ranger again. But then, guess what? At the end of the book, Stephanie is about to be bathed by Joe.
Why bother reading about unintelligent deviants in their particular puerile, vacuous microcosm? It's not entertaining, it's depressing.
Instead of having a reputation as a clever, comic writer, the name "Janet Evanovich" is becoming synonymous with those writers whose books Kindle tries to give away. I'm smart enough not to bother with those. Why can't I be smart enough not to waste my money on this series?

I'm giving this 3 stars more from nostalgic reasons rather than for the story or plot. I always bought these books as soon as they were released in hard back - this stopped at book 14 as there was definitely a drop in entertainment and story. I now wait until the paperbacks have been out a while before I purchase as I don't feel they are worth paying full price. I feel obligated to keep buying though as they're a series. I've said before and I'll say it again; Janet Evanovich really needs to think about finishing the series up.
However, I was surprised to be charged £13.99 (currently, hardcover available with Amazon Prime for the same price). Bad Amazon, bad.
I had the ebook/audiobook combination as I love Lorelei King’s narration. Even though the plot was predictable, I consider it entertaining comfort reading. It had me in stitches mainly for the set pieces like Grandma Mazur’s love life and Lulu and Randy Briggs attempts to become reality tv stars. The central mystery was also satisfying.
It’s still fun crazy madcap action and humour but the romance side is getting old, mostly in the sense that Janet Evanovich feels bored of writing it and in one particular case pretty much skipped it even in terms of the emotional effects. I’m a Ranger fan and I felt a little cheated in this one. Weirdly I think the Morelli fans will too. It’s almost as if towards the end of the book she just got bored writing it.
I still enjoyed the book but it is one that will be quickly forgotten. I still have every intention of reading the next one, though.
I have plea for the author: If you’re getting fed up of writing these then please give us a proper ending. Don’t let this wonderful series just fade out.
