Starred Review. Lorelei King returns to Trenton, N.J., to continue the misadventures of Stephanie Plum, intermittently successful bounty hunter. King is one of many to voice Janet Evanovich's successful series, but her voice can be heard above the crowd, especially when she's bringing the more colorful characters to life. Her former prostitute Lula can tear down walls with the force of her personality, and King gives professional security specialist (read mercenary) Ranger the measured tones of one who is always in control. Stephanie spends much of the book blue from a briefcase dye bomb. King's Plum accepts her blueness and responds to the reactions with indignity, ruefulness and eventually resignation. In addition to established favorites, Evanovich has thrown into the mix a 60-ish singer trying to hang onto fame who gives King plenty of scope for her Southern side. Fearless Fourteen becomes peerless fourteen with narrator King at the helm. A St. Martin's hardcover (Reviews, May 19). (June)

Our heroine, the irrepressible bounty hunter Stephanie Plum, finds herself watching over a goth teen called Zook, who is heavily into gaming, after his mom can’t make bail and disappears (or has been kidnapped). A lot of people think there is stolen money buried in or near Officer Morelli’s little house—that’s Steph’s Morelli, the cop who is her number-one boyfriend most of the time, or at least when the entrancing Ranger isn’t nearby. The money is the reason behind Zook’s mom’s disappearance, and it’s the tie that binds Evanovich’s various plotlines, which carom about endlessly, not always resolving. Questions abound: Are Steph’s sidekick, the plus-size Lula, and Ranger’s man Tank really engaged? Ranger is working security for a fading but brassy pop star: How does Steph manage to get into and out of her reality show? Can Zook and his sidekicks protect Morelli’s house—and Stephanie—with their homegrown weaponry (think potatoes as missiles)? Where else but Evanovich’s fourteenth novel can a line like “it’s raining money and popsicles!” actually make sense? Fans will be delighted, but others, who stumble into the series at this advanced point, may find themselves starved for backstory, so much so that they may need to go all the way back to One for the Money (1994). --GraceAnne A.

It is the perfect read for just talking some time to relax and enjoy yourself! If you are a fan go ahead you will enjoy this book. If you are just starting it is more fun to go back and start with#1!
I love the Stephanie Plum books because they are so outrageous laugh-out-loud funny. There isn't as much "substance" to them as some of the other mysteries I read, but they do deliver in the laughs department, and Fearless Fourteen was no exception.
While there was no car bombings or explosions, we did have a house bombing, a monkey that likes to hump and a aging star that likes to get intoxicated and is looking for husband #6. So needless to say there is plenty of action and lots of laughs!!
I liked this Stephanie Plum adventure. There are hints towards a future between Stephanie and Morelli, and it will be interesting to see if that plays out. While I'm hoping Stephanie might choose Ranger down the track, right now I'm happy to read about her love life with Morelli.
There wasn't as much "mystery" with this one but there were lots of laughs, including Grandma Mazur playing the role of a goth gamer, and for this reason it was a solid 4-star read for me!
I do agree that I wish Grandma Mazur was in the book a bit more. However, Grandma Mazur, Ranger and even Morelli are side characters. Stephanie is the main character of these books and sometimes the other characters are going to be scarce and that’s something you just have to deal with. But, having Mooner back was a treat. I think his character is funny and adds comic relief to the story line.
I also agree with the fact that I didn't like that we don’t know (and am guessing never will) who the toes belonged to. Dom’s mom? A random lady? Not getting to know who's they were after it being mentioned several times was kind of upsetting.
All in all, if you've read the other thirteen books, give fourteen a shot and form your own opinions. There were plenty of ”laugh out loud” moments and interesting story lines.
I understand why the title has "fearless" in it as Stephanie is getting more "professional" at what she does, and calls the shots even when it means facing an angry Morelli. I do not think the story was as inspired as some of the previous ones, but it is immensely entertaining and that is the reason I keep reading this series. I like the characters (I felt for Tank during this one!), and I am always amused by the storyline. If I am too tired or just feeling low, Stephanie never fails to make me laugh out loud.
