Top Secret Twenty-One

Summary from Goodreads:

Trenton, New Jersey’s favorite used-car dealer, Jimmy Poletti, was caught selling a lot more than used cars out of his dealerships. Now he’s out on bail and has missed his date in court, and bounty hunter Stephanie Plum is looking to bring him in. Leads are quickly turning into dead ends, and all too frequently into dead bodies. Even Joe Morelli, the city’s hottest cop, is struggling to find a clue to the suspected killer’s whereabouts. These are desperate times, and they call for desperate measures. So Stephanie is going to have to do something she really doesn’t want to do: protect former hospital security guard and general pain in her behind Randy Briggs. Briggs was picking up quick cash as Poletti’s bookkeeper and knows all his boss’s dirty secrets. Now Briggs is next on Poletti’s list of people to put six feet under.

To top things off, Ranger—resident security expert and Stephanie’s greatest temptation—has been the target of an assassination plot. He’s dodged the bullet this time, but if Ranger wants to survive the next attempt on his life, he’ll have to enlist Stephanie’s help and reveal a bit more of his mysterious past.

Death threats, highly trained assassins, highly untrained assassins, and Stark Street being overrun by a pack of feral Chihuahuas are all in a day’s work for Stephanie Plum. The real challenge is dealing with her Grandma Mazur’s wild bucket list. A boob job and getting revenge on Joe Morelli’s Grandma Bella can barely hold a candle to what’s number one on the list—but that’s top secret.

Dog + Reading a Book = Adorable!

Zeke reading a book

I like to think I have the cutest dog in the world. He’s always got a big doggy grin, and he’s so happy to see me. My dog is the subject of many photos- as I’m learning how to shoot pictures in manual mode as opposed to just plain auto-focus.

Yesterday, he was being particularly adorable as I was organizing my library books. He kept looking at this one intently- so I just pulled the camera out and began snapping pictures. Then decided to add props. End results: This!

If he could talk- I’d like to think he would say “While I’m enjoying the Lizzy/Diesel storyline, I much prefer the Stephanie Plum series for this reason- I’m a total Team Cupcake!”

But realistically, he’d probably prefer being friends with Lula- especially in “To the Nines” when she was on the meat-eating diet- after all, having a best friend who carries meat in the purse- total heaven for the dog!
