Takedown Twenty

Takedown Twenty (Stephanie Plum, #20)Takedown Twenty by Janet Evanovich
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Stephanie Plum is back and hot on the trail of a local Godfather who also happens to be the godfather of her on again off again boyfriend Joe Morelli. As usual she is in way over her head; she is dodging bullets, killers, Morelli's grandmother, Ranger and a giraffe. If she can make it through with out destroying to many cars she may just make it through the day.

Can I just say as much as I love Stephanie and her side kicks, the series is getting a little old. It has all the same bizarre story lines and wacky characters as the previous books in the series but I didn't laugh out loud anymore. I barely crack a smile. There are still funny parts but I just feel like we have been here done that and I want something new and fun.

I want Stephanie to grow as a person, I want her to choose between Morelli and Ranger (Morelli). I want LuLu to find love. I want Connie to take over the Bonds office. I want Vinnie...I don't know what I want Vinnie to do but something besides hide in his office all the time.

I just want something more from one of my favorite characters...she seems to be stalled out in life and while I have changed and matured it would be nice if she did also.

I know that Evanovich has contracted to write at least 22 books and lets cross our fingers that she finally ends the series, with Stephanie and Morelli together of course.
