Hot Six a 'Stephanie Plum' novel
by Janet Evanovich, Published by St Martin's Press
If you like a story that moves along fast, with some danger, a bit risque and with a lot of laughs along the way, you will love this book. I read it on my holidays and it was just the thing to keep me in holiday mood. Stephanie Plum is a one-off, a bounty hunter and sleuth with 'attitude'. It was funny that other Brits near me on the beach misread the title, so eyebrows were raised and conversations between us began! The author, Janet Evanovich, has won many awards for her work and, if you enjoy this one, there are several other novels in the series that are equally good.
