    One thought on “Eleven on Top”

    1. 4 out of 5 stars to Eleven on Top, the 11th book in the "Stephanie Plum" cozy mystery series by Janet Evanovich. This book was one of the more funny in the series, particularly for two reasons:Stephanie is being chased by someone who came back from the grave. She thought the person was dead, but it's not true and someone has a grudge. The humor that comes along with this one makes it worth the read.Stephanie, of course, needs more money. And she takes on multiple additional jobs besides being a [...]

    2. This was shaping up to be a 3-star book for me because Stephanie decides to stop being a bounty hunter and goes from stupid job to stupid job in her search for something different. I was pretty meh on that part because she didn't quit for the right reasons. She has literally been tortured in past books, but that didn't make her reevaluate her career choice. If someone had me tied down and was burning me with a hot poker I would consider the button factory then, but she didn't even slow down or h [...]

    3. This was a good plum novel a little bit different than the previous books in the series. I really didn't expect the ending and that was surprising but got to live Stephanie Plum!:)

    4. Joe Morelli is right. Stephanie Plum is a danger magnet. Because even when she quits her job as a bounty hunter she is still wrecking havok all over town. With no income she needs a new job and manages to go through three different ones in three days after being fired for being late, shooting up a cleaners and burning down the Cluck-a-Bucket. So what else can she do but work for hot bounty hunter extraodinaire Ranger? With a nice safe desk job, right? But that still doesn't keep her out of troub [...]

    5. I let someone at a library sale convince me to pick up a couple of her books, once she learned I'd never read the author. She handed me what felt like ten, and I discretely put a few back when she wasn't looking. Reading the back cover of this book, I kind of think I should've put this one back, too. Giving it a shot.----Color me shocked. I loved this character. I'm not exactly known for my grown up taste in books, nor for my appreciation of anything that comes close to "chick lit" (GOD, I hate [...]

    6. There is only so much a girl can take. And this girl has had enough! Enough of chasing bad guys, wrestling them to the ground, having them shoot at her and always ending up covered in garbage. So Stephanie Plum quits her job as a bounty hunter. She quickly finds out there are other jobs she is much worse at! She can’t seem to keep a job. She temporarily works at the button factury, a fast food place, a dry cleaners, before landing a gig at a security company, with the very good looking Ranger [...]

    7. There really isn't much to say about these books. They follow a formula and require minimal effort and brain power, perfect for stressful baseball postseason reading when your favorite team is trying to kill you with heart attack baseball. These books are comfort food without the calories, carbs, and sugar.

    8. Eleven On Top, 5 easy, no-brainer stars. This is the second Stephanie Plum novel I have read and it is official - I am in love with Stephanie Plum, and I am not even gay!Stephanie is a sassy, kick-ass bounty hunter who wants to put the bad guys behind bars, preferably without the aid of a gun - I get where she is coming from I don't like guns either.In this book she has quit her job because she has had enough of being shot at, kidnapped, stalked, firebombed, spat at, cussed at, run off the road [...]

    9. The Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich is incredible.Fun characters. Exhilarating mystery. Crimes to be solved. Lusts to be sated. Eleven on Top is a neat book. It is however, not on my top picks for this series. Nonetheless, the novel is amazing and I enjoyed every minute of it.Old men disappear and an old enemy keeps trying to blow Stephanie away. She has an idea who is behind the threats, but as Morelli and Ranger keep explaining to her, she has no evidence and is working based of ‘su [...]

    10. Shake the other ten in a bag, dump out a bit at a time, & you get 11 !!We hate to say it, as some of the other ten were definitely amusing, but there's not much smile factor left in Plum et al that we haven't heard or seen before. While there is a smidge of a plot (four small business owners are missing, and Steph keeps getting threatening notes and cars bombed), one can almost predict the rest: Lulu can't get her bond jumpers, so eats fast food; Steph shacks up with Morelli (again) but hank [...]

    11. A Stephanie Plum "Mystery." Stephanie quits her job as a bounty hunter, yet, despite this, continues to fail at common sense. Lula gets promoted and somehow proves to be even worse at the job than Stephanie. Morelli is hot and strangely calm. Ranger is hot and doing his best to save Stephanie from herself. Bob eats things he shouldn't, then does a lot of hunching and vomiting and crapping.Look. It's a hundred degrees here. I wanted something mindless, and I knew Evanovich would deliver. I wasn't [...]

    12. Okay, so I promised myself this had to be the last one for a while. And it was a great one to end on. Got to see Plum try to leave the bounty-hunter business behind and, of course, it was just one glorious disaster after another.I still get mad about her, "He's sexy, oh no he's sexy" stuff. I realize it's a tension-building love triangle I guess I just don't get into those when the one stuck in the middle stays (mostly) in a relationship. You're in a relationship, you chose to be in it and do se [...]

    13. :: 5 Gut-Busting Stars ::Oh man do I love reading the Stephanie Plum series. Janet Evanovich consistently writes books that keep readers hanging on the edge of their seats (while laughing out loud). In Eleven on Top, Stephanie Plum finally decides she has had enough of bounty hunting. She is tired of being stalked, abused, and scared of all the crazies she has to get. So, she hops from one job to another- the button factory, cluck-in-a bucket, and more! But, do these jobs actually keep her safe? [...]

    14. Stephanie Plum is thinking her career as fugitive apprehension agent has run its course. She's been shot at, spat at, cussed at, fire-bombed, mooned, and attacked by dogs. Time for a change, Stephanie thinks. Time to find the kind of job her mother can tell her friends about without making the sign of the cross. So Stephanie Plum quits. Resigns. No looking back. No changing her mind. She wants something safe and normal. As it turns out, jobs that are safe and normal for most people aren't necess [...]

    15. Number 11 in the Stephanie Plum series proves Janet Evanovich could go on forever. This best-selling author keeps the humor flowing with the wacky situations Stephanie and her cohorts manage to get themselves into. Stephanie is beginning to question where her life is going and makes the drastic decision to quit her job as a bounty hunter. She ends up working in a button factory but gets fired the first day before she even begins work. Her next job at a dry-cleaning establishment ends when the ow [...]

    16. These really are the perfect books to read while on an airplane. They're sort of like popcorn for the brain fun, enjoyable and quick. I know some of my friends started to get tired of the series after awhile, but I actually do think the books keep getting better (or maybe it's just that my mindset about them has changed enough that I'm enjoying them more).Oddly, one of the biggest complaints I've heard about the series is how the whole love triangle just drags on and on but I'm finding I actuall [...]

    17. I hate not being able to finish books, but this time I just couldn't get in to the book. Maybe my tastes have changed. Maybe it was the wrong book at the wrong time. All I know is all of the characters got on my nerves. Lula (who I used to love) is just stupid. I'm weary of the Steph/Morelli/Ranger "triangle" Even Grandma Mazur is no longer funny. I guess I just don't think there is any growth in the characters. They all say and do the same things every book. I loved the first 10, but I just can [...]

    18. NON HO MAI RISO COSI' TANTO (E IN MODO COSI' SGUAGLIATO) COME IN QUESTO ROMANZO!!!Stephanie al suo top (Il titolo lo prometteva!), Morelli e Ranger più sexi che mai e così tante situazioni paradossali che ve la farete sotto dalle risate!!Aaaah, è bello tornare a casa da te, Janet!

    19. Stephanie has hit hard times. Well, harder times than usual that is. Having reached a breaking point, Stephanie quits her job as a bond enforcement officer and pursues other career options much to her chagrin and my personal amusement. Life seems to b!tch slap Stephanie at every turn, and though it is not entirely realistic, it is no less endearing or humorous. Anyone who has read enough Plum novels to get to "Eleven On Top", knows these books are formulamatic. Stephanie blows up a car, or two, [...]

    20. Evanovich is back on track with this one. At first it seemed to be just the same ol', same ol' but about a quarter or a third of the way in it changed. Some absolutely hilarious scenes, more than just quips, but entire scenes. Pretty good mystery too.

    21. I listen to the audiobook and this series continues to provide some good laughs. With some series I would already be burnt out by book #11. Fortunately that has not happened. On to #12!

    22. Eleven on TopReally ALL of the Stephanie Plum’s I have Read Thus FarJanet EvanovichI have a soft spot in my heart for the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich. I started this series about 3 years ago. A friend of my mother-in-law raved on and on about them while we were at their pool one day, so I thought I would check them out. I picked up the first one in the series, One for the Money, at my local library. I remember reading it over the course of about 3 days. The book was well written, [...]

    23. I love these books. They seriously make me laugh out loud. And I am always torn between Ranger and Morelli. Yum!

    24. This was a very funny Stephanie Plum book. I was laughing out load at several parts. It amazes me that Evanovich never runs out of material for this series. I also loved the interactions with Ranger and Morelli, never a dull moment!

    25. And I go to bed at night wondering where my life is heading.- StephanieWell hell, when you smell that good and look that good who cares about anything else, anyway?- StephanieI don't have a lot of domestic instincts, but I have a real strong urge to take you home and hose you down.- RangerI needed happy food.- StephanieYou should have called me, I have just the thing to make you happy.- MorelliAnd on odd days of the month he woke up wanting to marry me. It turns out I only want to marry him on e [...]

    26. OK, my (**%)^$%!! laptop wiped out my review TWOCE before I could finish it, so let's try again. Latest fun Plum novel, narrated by Lorelei King (I like both her and C.J. Critt, both of whom have about perfected their characterizations and pacing, after so many of these works). This one involves Stephanie quitting Vinnie's Bail Bond business from getting just tired of chasing all these losers; however, her subsequent jobs are short lived and disastrous (just think of her jobs as not dissimilar t [...]

    27. Eleven on Top is the eleventh novel in the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich. In this novel Stephanie quits her job as a bounty hunter after another one of cars gets blown up again. She wants a safer job where she won't get shot at or have her apartment broken into again or her cars blowing up. This leads to her to working at the button factory (where she gets fired for being 3 hours late for work on her first day), to a dry cleaners (this one lasts until the second day when she gets shot [...]
