Stephanie Plum is thinking her career as a fugitive apprehension agent has run its course. She's been shot at, spat at, cussed at, fire-bombed, mooned, and attacked by dogs. Time for a change, Stephanie thinks. Time to find the kind of job her mother can tell her friends about without making the sign of the cross.

So Stephanie Plum quits. Resigns. No looking back. No changing her mind. She wants something safe and normal. As it turns out, jobs that are safe and normal for most people aren't necessarily safe and normal for Stephanie Plum. Trouble follows her, and the kind of trouble she had at the bail bonds office can't compare to the kind of trouble she finds herself facing now. Her past has come back to haunt her. She's stalked by a maniac returned from the grave for the sole purpose of putting her into a burial plot of her own. He's killed before, and he'll kill again if given the chance. Caught between staying far away from the bounty hunter business and staying alive, Stephanie reexamines her life and the possibility that being a bounty hunter is the solution rather than the problem. After disturbingly brief careers at the button factory, Kan Klean Dry Cleaners, and Cluck-in-a-Bucket, Stephanie takes an office position in security, working for Ranger, the sexiest, baddest bounty hunter and businessman on two continents. It might not be the job she'll keep for the rest of her life, but for now it gives her the technical access she needs to find her stalker. Tempers and temperatures rise as competition ratchets up between the two men in her life---her on-again, off-again boyfriend, tough Trenton cop Joe Morelli, and her bad-ass boss, Ranger. Can Stephanie Plum take the heat? Can you?

Between the adventure and the adversity there's attitude, and Stephanie Plum's got plenty in her newest misadventure, Eleven on Top .

PLOT OR PREMISE:
Stephanie's had enough of the bounty hunter business, so she quits and takes a series of jobs around Jersey. Meanwhile, someone's hunting her with threats, shots, and car bombs. Could it be the undertaker's son?
.
WHAT I LIKED:
All the various jobs going to heck in a handbasket are a hoot, not to mention Stephanie telling people she plays the cello, which they now want her to do at the wedding. And things really heat up when Stephanie starts working at Rangeman.
.
WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE:
The plot with a bunch of missing businessmen takes a long time to gel, but not really a problem.
.
DISCLOSURE:
I received no compensation, not even a free copy, in exchange for this review. I am not personal friends with the author, nor do I follow her on social media.

It was a nice change for Stephanie to try some different jobs -- although not so nice for some of her employers. . . She still rode along with Lulu and Ranger and even spent some time as a Rangeman employee. Will be interesting to see if she goes back to Vinnie in future episodes.

Stephanie Plum tries to lead a more normal life. It seems that danger and exploding cars follow her everywhere she goes. Good thing she has Ranger and Joe Morelli looking after her.

As with any Evanovich book, Stephanie Plum does not disappoint. Plum decides to try her hand at various jobs- though explosives and dismemberment still follow her around! One of the best Plum books!

Stephanie does it again. Love it!

My absolute favorite Plum (after the first). Stephanie tries to grow and goes through a series of "real" jobs with hilarious results.

The 11th book in a great series featuring engaging characters and laugh-out-loud humour. An enjoyable light read.
