Janet Evanovich's Newest Cover - Smokin' Seventeen

For those of you that are a die-hard Evanovich fan, I just received my bi-monthly copy of the Plum newsletter (you can sign up at her website evanovich.com) and in it was the cover for Smokin' Seventeen. 

Where there's smoke there's fire, and no one knows this better than New Jersey bounty hunter, Stephanie Plum.

Dead bodies are showing up in shallow graves on the empty construction lot of Vincent Plum Bail Bonds.  No one is sure who the killer is, or why the victims have been offed, but what is clear is that Stephanie's name is on the killer's list.
Short on time to find evidence proving the killer's identity, things get even more complicated for Stephanie when family and friends decide it's time for her to decide between long-time off-again-on-again boyfriend, Trenton cop, Joe Morelli, and the bad boy in her life, security expert, Ranger.   Stephanie's mom is encouraging Stephanie to dump them both, and choose a former high school football star who has just returned to town.  Stephanie's sidekick, Lula, is encouraging Stephanie to have a red-hot boudoir "bake-off".  And Grandma Bella, Morelli's old world grandmother, is encouraging Stephanie to move to a new state when she puts "the eye" on Stephanie.
With a cold-blooded killer after her, a handful of hot men and a capture list that includes a dancing bear and a senior citizen vampire, Stephanie's life looks like it's about to go up in smoke.

Also on Evanovich website is the first part of the books excerpt. Be sure to check out Smokin' Seventeen when it releases on June 21. I must say that if there is a series I follow closely it would have to be this one. You can't pass up the comedic timing of Evanovich and how could you pass up the zany antics of Grandma Mazur. Who knows what kind of messes will arise in this new Plum novel.
