Stephanie Plum, Trenton's favorite bondswoman, is having a career crisis, which gives Janet Evanovich plenty of opportunities to showcase her series heroine in a variety of alternative vocations, from dry cleaner to factory worker. Most of them don't last a full working day, which is good for the reader, since it plunges Stephanie back into the always seedy, often dangerous, and always colorful world of fugitives who'd rather flee than face their day in court. She may be tired of having her life threatened, her cars torched or blown up, and her apartment broken into, but one thing she can say about her job is that it's never boring... and neither is she. Despite her intentions of going straight at a job with a little more security and a bit less excitement, an old client won't let her--he keeps leaving her threatening notes, stalking and scaring her, and making sure she needs the protection of the two men in her life--Joe Morelli, the sexy cop who's been bedding her since high school, and Ranger, the even sexier tough guy who can take down the meanest fugitive around but has a tender spot in his heart for the plucky Ms. Plum. All Evanovich fans' favorite characters people this sprightly caper novel, including Lula, the fast-food-chomping former hooker who's hot to take over Stephanie's job but really belongs in a WWE Takedown; Grandma Mazur, who'd rather go to a wake than a fancy-dress ball; Grandma Bella, the matriarch of the Corelli family whose evil eye frightens even the indomitable Stephanie; and Valerie, Stephanie's sister, who's about to embark on another trip to the altar. A great beach read, Eleven on Top is a guilty pleasure that will delight readers of the author's 10 earlier novels and should win her even more fans. --Jane Adams

Customer Review of Eleven on Top (A Stephanie Plum Novel)
Laughed So Hard It Hurt!
I adore Janet Evanovich! Her books get better all the time."Eleven on Top" was absolutely hysterical. I laughed and laughed and then laughed some more. Lula tries to be a bounty hunter and Grandma Mazur gets into a fist fight with Morelli's Grandma Bella. And those are just two of the highlights from this novel.
>I know a few readers said they found this novel to be "over the top" and I say so what if it is? I didn't find it to be, but this is a fun series with a little over-the-top action now and again. It is terrific fun to read the books in this series and they read SO quickly. If you are looking for something totally engaging and very funny, check out the Stephanie Plum series.
Couldn't read through my tears
This book was so laugh-out-loud funny I literally could not see the words through my tears. Start with One for the Money and read them all. The only parts I did not like were Stephanie lying about the cello and not being able to tell Joe she loved him. When (if?) she choses between Morelli and Ranger, I will feel bad for the one she doesn't pick. Maybe Ranger's secret will help everything work out. This is vintage Plum. Bring on #12.
Jumped the shark with this book...
...or is that expression only allowed for use with TV programs? Well, unfortunately, it happens to be true, and next summer I won't be waiting to read book 12.
>I've read some reviews that say, basically, 'Lighten up! It's only a beach book!' Well, I might be buying a 'beach book', but I still want to buy a GOOD beach book, one that keeps me entertained and excited. EOT does neither.
>The Stephanie Plum series used to be a good series. It wouldn't have made it to 11 books with a huge fanbase if it wasn't. We fell in love with the characters, the crazy humor, the insane situations, the sexual tension. Everything came together perfectly, and they were an excellent read.
>Starting a couple books ago in the series, things began a downward spiral. Characters and situations started to become dull and predictable. Parts of the books were still good, but it was not a cohesive whole.
>Now, what we are left with in this book is dull and rote. The main characters are all one-note, the situations are eye-rollingly familiar, and the sexual tension between Steph/Morelli/Ranger is as exciting as fingernails across the chalkboard.
>And as for the humor? I laughed twice during the whole book.
>Steph used to be my hero. She was by no means a superwoman, but she persevered, she didn't back down, and she was able to laugh at herself and her mistakes. Now, I don't even like the character. She is whiny and self-centered, and her 'feelings' about the two male leads just make her seem cheap. She'll talk about how she is disappointed in herself for not being able to tell Joe she loves him even though she feels it, then two pages later in the book she's thinking about going to bed with Ranger.
>As for those two guys, they aren't even characters anymore, they are just accessories for Stephanie. They used to be cool, now they're pretty much emasculated.
>Nothing lasts forever, and my belief is this series has run its course. It was a great series, and I'm very grateful to Janet Evanovich for creating this amazing mix of characters that made many an enjoyable hour for me. I have enough love for the series that, when the last book is finally out, I'll be curious enough to look for spoilers on the web to see who Janet finally decided Stephanie should end up with.
>However, don't expect me to spend any more of my money on this series, after TBO and especially this book. I'd rather keep my fond memories of Steph and the gang then watch the characters I love slowly be destroyed with progressively worse books.
