Fortune and Glory: Tantalizing Twenty-Seven by Janet Evanovich
Reviewed by L. Bennett
In this novel the lucky but nearly inept bail bondsman Stephanie Plum is hunting three guys who jumped bail. She needs to pay her rent so she has to bring the men in. Easier said than done, of course. But it is Stephanie's Grandma who provides the suspense, mystery, and fun in Janet Evanovich's 27th book in the Plum series. Grandma, in case you haven't enjoyed the earlier books, is the wife of a deceased gangster and his buddies believe she holds the key to recover the treasure the group of baddies hid decades ago. One of the former buddies is out to capture Grandma and wrest the secret from her no matter the consequences. Stephanie and her odd assortment of sidekicks have their hands full protecting the gun-toting, treasure-hungry granny. It was a fast, fun read and good for some laughs.
