Hardcore Twenty-Four (Stephanie Plum #24) by Janet Evanovich

Summary: Janet Evanovich’s #1 New York Times bestselling sensation Stephanie Plum returns in her twenty-fourth thriller as mutilated corpses litter the streets of New Jersey…

Trouble comes in bunches for Stephanie Plum. First, professional grave robber and semi-professional loon, Simon Diggery, won’t let her take him in until she agrees to care for his boa constrictor, Ethel. Stephanie’s main qualification for babysitting an extremely large snake is that she owns a stun gun—whether that’s for use on the wandering serpent or the petrified neighbors remains to be seen.

Events take a dark turn when headless bodies start appearing across town. At first, it’s just corpses from a funeral home and the morgue that have had the heads removed. But when a homeless man is murdered and dumped behind a church Stephanie knows that she’s the only one with a prayer of catching this killer.

If all that’s not enough, Diesel’s back in town. The 6-foot-tall, blonde-haired hunk is a man who accepts no limits—that includes locked doors, closed windows and underwear. Trenton’s hottest cop, Joe Morelli isn’t pleased at this unexpected arrival nor is Ranger, the high-powered security consultant who has his own plans for Stephanie.

As usual Jersey’s favorite bounty hunter is stuck in the middle with more questions than answers. What’s the deal with Grandma Mazur’s latest online paramour? Who is behind the startling epidemic of mutilated corpses? And is the enigmatic Diesel’s sudden appearance a coincidence or the cause of recent deadly events?

My Review:  I love this series, this is a series I have been reading for years.   I love reading the crazy situations that Stephanie Plum gets herself into.  They may be redundant and similar in every book but that is what you expect and love about a Stephanie Plum novel… you know what you are going to get.  One yummy satisfying tasty cake.

This book was fun because it featured Diesel and it wasn’t a novella, which I found quite interesting.  Are my two books going to have a cross over?  A girl can hope.

Plus this book featured zombies… and we ALL know how I love zombies.   Such a fun book and I can’t wait to read the next one!
