Genre: Light Mystery/ humor
Published 2006
Book on CD read by C. J. Critt

From Publishers Weekly:

At the start of this cool comedy thriller from bestseller Evanovich, her second novel to star Alexandra "Barney" Barnaby (after 2004's Metro Girl), Barney and her unfaithful NASCAR racing honey, Sam Hooker, find themselves in trouble after discovering the shrink-wrapped body of ruthless businessman Oscar Huevo in a rival racer's car hauler. The pair must pull together to protect a high-tech gizmo that can revolutionize racing-and save their lives. Evanovich burns some rubber and only hits the brakes a few times, thanks to her bright dialogue, race-track savvy and expert depiction of romantic mayhem. Though sometimes it seems as if she's still taking a test drive with this new cast of eccentrics, the pages fly by as the racy tension between Hooker and Barney adds heat to the fun. Action on the menu includes destruction of valuable race cars, a dognapping and a kidnapping. While Barney isn't likely to beat Stephanie Plum in a popularity contest, she's still a hoot.
This was a light, enjoyable audiobook for driving around town listening. Barney and Hooker are definitely not clones of Stephanie and Joe or Ranger, but they’re still fun. I’m pretty sure I’m developing a soft spot for Hooker and I think I love Beans (Hooker’s loveable Saint Bernard).

This one sounds cute. May have to get it for light reading between some of the heavy stuff I have planned.

Karen: read Metro Girl first - they're not quite as good as the Stephanie Plum books, but they're still fun.
