REVIEW: Lean Mean Thirteen

Title: Lean Mean Thirteen
Author: Janet Evanovich
Finished: August 29, 2010
Pages: 310
Published: 2007
Format: First Edition

I’m closing in on catching up with the series. In the latest adventure, Ranger has Stephanie doing some secret work that she’s hesitant to even tell her friends about, and especially not Joe. But when a visit to her ex-husband Dickie, turns into a fight, Stephanie finds herself the prime suspect in his recent disappearance and possible murder.

Positive she was going to have to figure out this mystery on her own, Stephanie finds herself in the middle of fire after fire, as buildings are burning and the body count continues to rise. If she’s ever feared for her life more, this would be that time.

This adventure was fun. The banter back and forth between Ranger and Joe over who’s turn it was to protect Stephanie was cute, followed by her making up her own mind and protecting herself. I’m loving how Ranger makes it no secret that with only the slightest signal his relationship with Stephanie who move to the next level and she would have no control over it. I love that Stephanie is coming into her own, maturing, not taking crap from anyone and finally doing something people can be proud of instead of always embarrassing them and herself.
