Fortune and Glory: A Novel (27) (A Stephanie Plum Novel)
The search for treasure didn’t end in Twisted Twenty-Six. Evidently the La-Z-Boys still think they can find their treasure, even if the group is dwindling due to ill-timed deaths. After a fight with Morelli about the legitimacy of the treasure, Stephanie looks to Ranger to help safeguard Grandma Mazur and possibly do some not-so-legal breaking and entering and safe cracking. Helping George Potts, a bail skip, earns Plum a half-hearted guard and some unexpected comic relief. When Gabriela Rose enters, an unknown entity in the treasure hunting business who has been seen talking with Morelli, Stephanie must pull out all her best moves to find the treasure so she can help Grandma Mazur get what is rightfully hers.
Though predictable and ridiculous, book twenty-seven is just as quick and fun as the previous twenty-six installments. Readers can expect the usual tension between Morelli and Ranger, crazy laugh-out-loud antics from Grandma Mazur and Lula (see the first chapter!), and multiple bombs and car explosions. This is not the last we’ll see of Stephanie Plum, as book twenty-eight is slated for November, nor Gabriela Rose, who will have her own spin-off in June with The Recovery Agent, which are sure to appeal to those who haven’t tired of the series yet.
