Waiting on Wednesday # 3, Takedown Twenty

Waiting on Wednesday #3

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine that spotlights eagerly anticipated, upcoming books.

My choice for this week's Waiting on Wednesday is:

Takedown Twenty (Stephanie Plum # 20) by Janet Evanovich.

Stephanie Plum has her sights set on catching a notorious mob boss. If she doesn’t take him down, he may take her out.

New Jersey bounty hunter Stephanie Plum knows better than to mess with family. But when powerful mobster Salvatore “Uncle Sunny” Sunucchi goes on the lam in Trenton, it’s up to Stephanie to find him. Uncle Sunny is charged with murder for running over a guy (twice), and nobody wants to turn him in—not his poker buddies, not his bimbo girlfriend, not his two right-hand men, Shorty and Moe. Even Trenton’s hottest cop, Joe Morelli, has skin in the game, because—just Stephanie’s luck—the godfather is his actual godfather. And while Morelli understands that the law is the law, his old-world grandmother, Bella, is doing everything she can to throw Stephanie off the trail.

It’s not just Uncle Sunny giving Stephanie the run-around. Security specialist Ranger needs her help to solve the bizarre death of a top client’s mother, a woman who happened to play bingo with Stephanie’s Grandma Mazur. Before Stephanie knows it, she’s working side by side with Ranger and Grandma at the senior center, trying to catch a killer on the loose—and the bingo balls are not rolling in their favor.

With bullet holes in her car, henchmen on her tail, and a giraffe named Kevin running wild in the streets of Trenton, Stephanie will have to up her game for the ultimate takedown.

I know that this series has gone on far longer than it should have and the love triangle scenario is well past overused but I'm in already. I just can't quit! I'm dedicated. I just wish she'd give me more of Lizzy and Diesel.

What are you waiting on?


  1. I wish I had caught this series at the beginning. I've heard/read such great things about it but at this point I don't think I could make that kind of commitment. :) My WOW.

  2. Oh that one is on my TBR shelf, I can't wait to get to it. I love Stephanie Plum and her crazy actions (and reactions), lol. Now yes, it's true, the series does stretch a bit, but as long as I still enjoy reading them, let them come!

  3. This is my WOW this week as well. Great minds and all that. :D
