Book Review: Four to score

Stephanie Plum, Trenton, New Jersey's favorite pistol-packing, condom-carrying bounty hunter, is back - and on the trail of a revenge-seeking waitress who's skipped bail. With the help of 73-year-old Grandma Mazur, ex-hooker Lula, a transvestite musician named Sally Sweet, and the all-too-hospitable, all-too-sexy Joe Morelli, Stephanie might just catch her woman. Then again, with more mishaps than there are exits on the Jersey Turnpike - including murders, firebombs, and Stephanie's arch-rival bounty hunter chasing after the same fugitive - Stephanie better watch her back big-time if she wants to live to crack this case.

In this book Stephanie Plum,bounty hunter, assignment is to bring in a woman.
The fugitive criminal keeps leaving coded messages for her ex-boyfriend, and he's hired Stephanie to figure out what she wants. Stephanie is no good at cracking the code, she asks all the seniors in her building, but no such luck. No surprise that one of the seniors has a nephew that's a wiz at puzzles, not to mention a transvestite singer...
As if it weren't enough to be toting Grandma Mazur and Lula, and now Sally Sweet the singer on her case,  cousin Vinnie has hired her nemesis the woman she caught with her husband, Joyce Barnhardt—not only hired her, but given Joyce the same case! Of course it's not a complete book unless someone is trying to kill Stephanie, this her car and her apartment catch fire!!Whoever it is means business, too—. And then she moves in with Joe Morelli while the damage is being repaired—I can't decide if he is trouble or not?
I enjoy reading these books, they are funny and easy to read. I know there are 19, I wondering if 19 cars get blown up? I will keep reading these between other things I have on my list.
