Series: Book 7 of Stephanie Plum

Bounty hunter Stephanie Plum's got a lot on her mind. How does cigarette smuggler Eddie DeChooch, a fugitive so geriatric that even the hot-to-trot Grandma Mazur won't go out with him a third time, keep giving her the slip? How did a woman who died of a heart attack end up in DeChooch's garden shed with five bullet holes in her chest? Who stole a rump roast from Dougie and Mooner, the two lovable potheads who have decided to be crime fighters in Spandex bodysuits? Can Stephanie's perfect sister Valerie make it as a lesbian single mother without driving her family crazy? And--oh yeah--what should Stephanie do about that damn wedding dress on hold at Tina's Bridal Shoppe, waiting for her to decide whether vice cop Joe Morelli's really the one for her?

The Jersey girl in me can't help but love the Stephanie Plum series. The one flaw? In Seven Up, Stephanie seems to be running in circles a little more than usual which is kind of distracting. Other than that, it was like all the others, a super fast read with a couple of surprises that you don't see coming. I'm going to have to read the next one really soon because I'm dying to know what happened after that last scene with Stephanie and Ranger.
