Hot Six by Janet Evanovich
Genre: Adult Fiction
Form: Mass Paperback
Series: Stephanie Plum Series
Bounty hunter Stephanie Plum is faced with her most daunting task yet: bring in the mysterious former Special Forces agent, Carlose Manoso (aka Ranger). He’s the man who taught her everything about fugitive apprehension, and Stephanie knows she will be testing her skills against the master. But if she does catch him, she’s not so sure she could turn in her friend-even if he’s wanted for murder…
Ant if this isn’t enough to keep her up at night, Grandma Mazur is crimping her sex life by moving in with her and keeping her from getting any action from her cop boyfriend, Joe Morelli. Now, with her love life messing with her head, two threatening goons on her tail, and three corpses – so far – it’s getting a little too hot for Stephaine, who’s search for Ranger is bringing her dangerously close to the wrong side of the law…Source: back of book
First of all, the synopsis has it wrong. This isn’t her task. She does not take the assignment to bring Ranger in – Joyce Barnhardt has this assignment. But Stephanie, of course, cannot help but be caught in the middle of all the drama. Especially as others involved in this mystery are following HER to find Ranger. Which of course, they are right to – since Ranger somehow finds himself into Stephanie’s apartment on a semi-regular basis. Oh, and we can’t forget the new addition to the Plum series: Bob the dog..the poop-tacular mutt who (of course) eats everything in sight!
Hot Six steps up the Stephanie/Ranger possibilities a bit – bring on another love triangle…will be Team Joe or Team Ranger? Personally – I’d go with Joe. But that’s just me.
