“Four to Score” by Janet Evanovich. I want to say this is the best book I’ve read in awhile. I have this personal gauge of judging books that if I cry at the end it was a good book. “Four to Score” had me howling with laughter many times throughout the book. I have a new standard for judging books. I couldn’t turn a page and I was laughing. This isn’t the first book I’ve read by Janet Evanovich and it sure won’t be the last. Same caliber of excellent writing. Same fantastic one-liners and wonderfully quirky witticisms.
Stephanie Plum is a bounty hunter. “Four to Score” is another one of her attempts to bring in somebody who has jumped bail. Actually, it isn’t an attempt. She does get her man; or her lady in this case. But along the way she has terrific sex with a cop, she gets assistance from a rock star who dresses as a woman for success and a former prostitute now file clerk who yearns to be a bounty hunter too. They go after the bad guys. And, this has got to be the best few hours you will spend during the summer you can imagine.
