I’m starting to understand how as the series goes on, you can start to tire of certain aspects. While I thoroughly enjoyed this book in the series, and everything about it, I am starting to wonder why Stephanie still has so many problems apprehending the easiest of criminals. I know the point of the stories are to give humor to the seriousness of some of her situations, however, fourth time is never the charm.

Hard Eight has Stephanie not only working on finding two people who have skipped their court date, but she’s taken a side job of helping a neighbor find her missing daughter and granddaughter. New and old faces arise, Stephanie is being terrorized by a dangerous man who both Ranger and Morelli tell her to stay away from. The one good thing she has going for her is that all the men in her life are willing to come to her aid over and over, protecting her from the bad guys.

It was great reading the resolution of book seven, and then having a new cliffhanger all on its own. I’m not sure what book nine has in store, but I’m sure it will be good. I have to take a Stephanie Plum break and read up on some other series, but I will be back to it soon, I’m sure.
