Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Creator of the Stephanie Plum series begins another starring an equally sassy heroine, Alex Barnaby who is off to Florida and a load of misadventure, murder and mayhem. She is good on acerbic wit, one-liners and non-stop action.

Synopsis

Metro Girl by Janet Evanovich

Buckle your seat belts. Number One bestselling author Janet Evanovich is moving into the fast lane with METRO GIRL, a thrilling, high-octane misadventure with high stakes, hot nights, cold-blooded murder, sunken treasure, a woman with a chassis built for speed, and one very good, very sexy stock-car racer who's along for the ride.

When ‘Wild’ Bill Barnaby drops off the face of the earth, big sister Alex heads for Miami to save her brother. Battling bad-hair-day humidity, Miami hit men, and Palmetto bugs big enough to eat her alive, Alex pursues Bill's trail through the bars of South Beach then south to Key West and Cuba.

Turns out, in his haste to leave town, Bill ‘borrowed’ a yacht belonging to Sam Hooker, hero of the NASCAR circuit. Hooker figures he'll attach himself to Alex and maybe run into scumbag Bill. Maybe even get lucky in love with Bill's sweetie pie sister. After all, he is very good at revving a woman's engine.

The race to the finish is hot and hard, taking Alex and Hooker into international waters, exposing a plot to grab Cuban gold and a sinister relic of the Cuban missile crises.

Creative cussing and tasteless sexual innuendo included.

Maxim Jakubowski's view on STEPHANIE PLUM...

A wisecracking New Jersey involuntary sleuth whose personal relationships and hapless investigations have a tendency to always go wrong with often hilarious results, Plum is a great blue collar character whose hard-nosed determination always somehow comes up trumps. FINGER LICKIN’ FIFTEEN is her latest caper and offers a barrel full of laughs and thrills as ever.
