Where there’s smoke there’s fire, and no one knows this better than New Jersey bounty hunter Stephanie Plum.

Dead bodies are showing up in shallow graves on the empty construction lot of Vincent Plum Bail Bonds. No one is sure who the killer is, or why the victims have been offed, but what is clear is that Stephanie’s name is on the killer’s list.

Short on time to find evidence proving the killer’s identity, Stephanie faces further complications when her family and friends decide that it’s time for her to choose between her longtime off-again-on-again boyfriend, Trenton cop Joe Morelli, and the bad boy in her life, security expert Ranger. Stephanie’s mom is encouraging Stephanie to dump them both and choose a former high school football star who’s just returned to town. Stephanie’s sidekick, Lula, is encouraging Stephanie to have a red-hot boudoir “bake-off.” And Grandma Bella, Morelli’s old-world grandmother, is encouraging Stephanie to move to a new state when she puts “the eye” on Stephanie.

With a cold-blooded killer after her, a handful of hot men, and a capture list that includes a dancing bear and a senior citizen vampire, Stephanie’s life looks like it’s about to go up in smoke.

Five reasons why I cannot wait for this to come out:
01. I have read (and loved) all of the previous books in this series.
02. I laugh out loud in every single one of these. They’re hysterical.
03. I am so involved with these characters by now! Stephanie, Ranger, Morelli, Lula, Connie, Grandma Mazur.. fun stuff!
04. I don’t want her to pick between Ranger or Morelli yet.
05. The end of the last one left things a little up in the air, so a year is a long enough wait!

These come out once a year, and a year is a long time to find out the next chapter of Stephanie's life! She gets herself into such trouble with her friends and family. And while I'm sure she has to pick at some point, Stephanie is doing a good job at working Ranger and Morelli, which is very entertaining. I've listened to all of these on audio, and I have enjoyed both CJ Critt's and Lorelei King's performances. I look forward to seeing what Lorelei can do for this next addition. I hope everyone enjoys this novel because I'm sure I will!!

There is a contest at Kieran Scott's blog! She's the wonderful author of the new She's So Dead To Us series. Take a look at her blog, read her books, and enter the contest! Super easy!!
