Rainer Maria Rilke

"Live a while in these books, learn from them what seems to you worth learning, but above all love them. This love will be repaid you a thousand and a thousand times, and however your life may turn,-it will, I am certain of it, run through the fabric of your growth as one of the most important threads among all the threads of your experiences, disappointments, and joys."--Rainer Maia Rilke

A Sinful Pleasure...Much Like Tastycakes

Hard Eight:  Stephanie Plum #8 by Janet Evanovich

Romance/Mystery/Thriller

I'm sure there was a mystery in here somewhere...probably someone did something wrong and then skipped out on their bail.  Then, the world's worst bounty hunter stumbles across a bigger mystery and tries to solve it, getting herself, and everyone surrounding her almost killed several times over before she accidentally solves the crime.  I'm sure that's what happened in this book because that's what happens in every book.

If the plot is why you read these, you're clearly missing the point.  The point is the hot dichotomy of Ranger Vs. Joe.  In this book, that triangle just turned up the heat about 100 degrees.  I can't give too much away if you haven't read it, but I'll have to say I was shocked by the events that take place.  I don't know why because it's been leading up to this for, oh, about seven other books, but still...

This was is as funny, as ridiculous, and sinful as each of the previous ones in the series.  The difference here is that Evanovich just upped her game and now I'm scrambling to find #9.
