Stephanie Plum: High Five by Janet Evanovich

Out of bail skippers and rent money, Stephanie throws caution to the wind and follows in the entrepreneurial boot steps of Super Bounty Hunter, Ranger, engaging in morally correct and marginally legal enterprises. So, a scumball blows himself to smithereens on her first day of policing a crack house and the sheik she was chauffeuring stole the limo. But hey, nobody's perfect!

Anyway, Stephanie has other things on her mind. Her mother wants her to find Uncle Fred who's missing after arguing with his garbage company; homicidal rapist Benito Ramirez is back, quoting scripture and stalking Stephanie; vice cop Joe Morelli has a box of condoms with Stephanie's name on it; and Stephanie's afraid Ranger has his finger on her trigger.

Ok, I've got to be honest. After the events of book 4, Four to Score, High Five wasn't as exciting. This is good news for me because I was beginning to panic. Nothing can be this good, can it? Anyway, High Five was another good read by Miss Janet E. and even though I loved book four better I cannot wait to get a hold of book six. And as for Steph's sexual encounters, they're practically non existent.
