In the heart of Trenton, N.J., a killer is out to make sure someone gets his just desserts. Larry Virgil skipped out on his latest court date after he was arrested for hijacking an eighteen-wheeler full of premium bourbon. Fortunately for bounty hunter Stephanie Plum, Larry is just stupid enough to attempt almost the exact same crime again . Only this time he flees the scene, leaving behind a freezer truck loaded with Bogart ice cream and a dead body--frozen solid and covered in chocolate and chopped pecans. As fate would have it, Stephanie's mentor and occasional employer, Ranger, needs her to go undercover at the Bogart factory to find out who's putting their employees on ice and sabotaging the business. It's going to be hard for Stephanie to keep her hands off all that ice cream, and even harder for her to keep her hands off Ranger. It's also going to be hard to explain to Trenton's hottest cop, Joe Morelli, why she is spending late nights with Ranger, late nights with Lula and Randy Briggs--who are naked and afraid--and late nights keeping tabs on Grandma Mazur and her new fella. Stephanie Plum has a lot on her plate, but for a girl who claims to have "virtually no marketable skills," these are the kinds of sweet assignments she does best.

Boring, formulaic, same old same old. And, call me old-fashioned but I really object to her sleeping with both Ranger & Morelli in the same book :( I stopped buying Evanavitch's books long ago, now this is the last one I read from the library ...
Can I give it 'no stars'?

I have to leave Stephanie now before she becomes a nightmare. I've loved her up until now but Janet Evanovich isn't putting any effort into moving her or her lovely men on. It almost feels as if Ms Evanovich is going through the motions for money only & isn't prepared to take everyone out of limbo. It's "Groundhog Day" all over again...& again.....& again. Come on Janet man up & move us all on!!!!!

Excellent book for entertainment and travel! Grandma Mazur is always full of surprises and makes me laugh hard.

I was at the pool reading my book and started laughing at Lulu's antics. Another mom walked by and said, "Stephanie Plum, right?" Need I say more.

Sigh! TURBO TWENTY-THREE offers nothing new or fresh in this long-standing series. When our feisty heroine, Stephanie Plum, burst on the literary scene 20+ years ago, creator and author Janet Evanovich challenged fans of the traditional male-dominated bounty hunter/detective genre by offering snappy dialogue, memorable albeit wacky characters, and original mysteries that were fun to read as well as to solve. By my calculations, Stephanie has got to be pushing middle-age by now, but she and her cohorts seem to be perpetually locked into a pathetic, adolescent formulaic loop. Time to pull the plug on this series and put Stephanie et al., not to mention readers, out of their collective misery.

Not great literature, but a fun read.

Excellent, as always!!!! Not as much tension than some of her past books, so may fit more in the cozy genre, but very, very, very funny!!!!

I found the first ten of this series laugh out loud funny. This was just ridiculous, I won't be reading anymore of this series.

Too many weak characters. Implausible characters develop into, even more so, hard to relate to characters. To top it off the story line is weak!

Not one of her best; poorly written

I pushed through the loading dock doors and looked around, happy to be outside. It was a cloudless blue-sky day. Perfect for September. Warm in the sun and chilly in the shade. Hardly any stench from the chemical plant in the neighboring industrial park and only a slight haze of air pollution.

I had a big Maglite, and Lula had her purse.
"What are we looking for?" Lula asked.
"I don't know exactly. Evidence of chocolate syrup and chopped nuts. A huge freezer. Bloodstains."
"The usual stuff," Lula said.
