Metro Girl by Janet Evanovich July 6, 2009

I just read Metro Girl by Janet Evanovich. Much like her other well know character, Stephanie Plum, Alexandra “Barney” is a quirky, easy to relate to woman who grew up in a Baltimore car garage, and has the attitude to prove it. When Barney’s little brother, Wild Bill, goes missing, and she finds his apartment has been searched, she high tails it over to Florida to solve the mystery. Along the way, she meets NASCAR legend Sam Hooker, a sexy Texas womanizer who sets his sights on Barney. Teaming up with two large round Mexican woman and Judey, Barney’s gay friend, they find out that Bill is involved in some bad stuff (a plot to overthrow the Cuban government, a poison canister that could easily kill six million people, and several millions of dollars in gold bricks). Intent on saving her brother, and his new girl, Barney winds up pissing off several bad people– and I think we all know what comes next.
This story, like so many others of Evanovichs, is so spellbinding and fun, I devoured it all in one sitting! Plus, it’s funny (I laughed so much my sides hurt) and the characters are so charming you’d think they really exist (who can’t resist NASCAR guy when he’s trying to be funny?). This really is a great book.

I absolutely love Janet Evanovich’s writing. I think I’m going to have to read this one too!
