Tricky Twenty-Two by Janet Evanovich
Narrator: Lorelei King
Length: 6 hrs and 27 mins
Date Read: March 2016
Genre: Cozy Mystery, Mystery
Something big is brewing in Trenton, N.J., and it could blow at any minute.
Stephanie Plum might not be the world's greatest bounty hunter, but she knows when she's being played. Ken Globovic (aka Gobbles), hailed as the Supreme Exalted Zookeeper of the animal house known as Zeta fraternity, has been arrested for beating up the dean of students at Kiltman College. Gobbles has missed his court date and gone into hiding. People have seen him on campus, but no one will talk. Things just aren't adding up, and Stephanie can't shake the feeling that something funny is going on at the college - and it's not just Zeta fraternity pranks.
As much as people love Gobbles, they hate Doug Linken. When Linken is gunned down in his backyard it's good riddance, and the list of possible murder suspects is long. The only people who care about finding Linken's killer are Trenton cop Joe Morelli, who has been assigned the case, security expert Ranger, who was hired to protect Linken, and Stephanie, who has her eye on a cash prize and hopefully has some tricks up her sleeve.

First Thought when Finished: Lots of Lulu so Tricky Twenty-Two was downright fun!
Quick Thoughts: I seriously keep these for when I need something fun, light, quick, and predictable to read. The mysteries are usually pretty solid and the hijinks are ones that will make you smile. I think the end of the book might have brought the back and forth of the Morelli/Ranger/Steph triangle to an end but alas this is Steph so who knows. Only warning with this book, if you have a flea phobia it might not be the book for you LOL 🙂
NOTE: I do not read these in order so I don’t think you have too! I just kind of pick them up as my library has the audio available. Each case stands alone!

I love Lorelei’s take on Stephanie and especially Lulu & Grandma. Even her “babe” as Ranger is pretty darn good. These are fun on audio. She brings the snark and sass full-time! Which with these characters is just what you need!
Part of my read it, rate it, file it, done! reviews
During her non-reading time you can find her hanging with her rescue furr children named after book characters: Lizzie a beautiful cattle dog mix (Pound Pup), Cinder a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Pound Pup), and Minerva a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Foster Fail). Gathering with friends and family, attending conventions, watching movies/tv shows, rooting for the 49rs, and crocheting.
