Turbo twenty-three by Janet Evanovich

Stephanie Plum bk 23. Hachette Australia, 2016. ISBN 9781472201706
(Age: Adult) Strong language and sexual content. Another one for anyone who is a fan of Stephanie Plum and her very funny friends. Stephanie is again trying to pick up a bond evader, who is trying to hijack a freezer van loaded with Bogart ice-cream. He crashes the van and a frozen body covered in chocolate and pecans is discovered in the back. Ranger asks her to go undercover at the Bogart factory and try and discover just what is going on. From then on there are all the hilarious hijinks that one would expect to happen in this series.
Probably one of the reasons people continue to read the books is to find out whether Stephanie finally ends up with Joe Morelli or whether the temptation of the dark, mysterious and very sexy Ranger will prove too much for Stephanie. As always, Evanovich is clever enough to keep the reader engrossed enough to continue to the end to see what happens in the romance department.
The murder mystery is also lots of fun as Stephanie grapples with some hilarious and sometimes very dangerous moments as she helps to uncover the strange murder.
Turbo twenty-three is pure holiday reading, with a lot of familiar humour, a new plot and some scary moments.
