Book 7 of the Stephanie Plum series does not disappoint. I have been waiting for the chance to read this and decided to just put all other books aside and start it. Good thing they are quick reads because I read it in less than 24 hours (I’m sure) over the course of a couple days.

In Seven Up, Stephanie is searching for Eddie DeChooch – her grandmother’s “boyfriend” – who was caught smuggling cigarettes over the state line and missed his bail hearing. Turns out he’s severely depressed, refuses to leave the house, and doesn’t mind shooting at whoever comes near him. He has a knack for escaping seemingly impossible situations (climbing out of windows, etc) and causing trouble. Everyone seems to be looking for him, and still no one can catch him.

As if Stephanie doesn’t have enough problems, the gossip mill is running on full regarding Stephanie and Joe, but Stephanie still can’t wrap her head about spending the rest of her life with him … especially when someone else keeps sending signals her way.

I absolutely loved book 7, I am very anxious to get home and possibly start book 8 (just to see where the cliffhanger left off). At this rate I might get through the rest of the series in record time.
