"This isn't another case. This is family." This. This is 100% exactly how I feel about this book and this series. It's family.

Janet Evanovich takes us on another wild adventure with the family in this latest Stephanie Plum novel, Twisted Twenty-Six. This time it isn't just about her crazy cases, although there's no shortage of that either, this time - it's personal. Grandma Mazur is being targeted by... well, everyone. There are quite a few shady characters out there wishing this sassy Grandma harm over something she has zero knowledge of. Let's see, there's the mob, the sisters of her late husband of 45 minutes, said late husband's ex-wife and daughter. The list goes on, and it's up to Stephanie to figure it all out before it's too late!

I absolutely and without a doubt loved reading Twisted Twenty-Six! The dialogue and flawless transition from one moment to the next were on point. The imagery and descriptions of scenes, characters, and feelings were like no other. Once you get sucked into the world of Stephanie Plum, each subsequent novel is like visiting with an old friend, with family. I wouldn't expect anything less from Janet Evanovich. Having read every one of the Stephanie Plum novels and the Lizzy & Diesel novels, I can say this - Twisted Twenty-Six isn't one to be missed! It's a must-read! I was laughing out loud more times than I can count!

By the end, I was tearing up at how much I enjoyed this book and wished I could share it with my Grandma. This story, this series, is incredibly important to me for so many reasons. I’ve always loved reading, but reading this series with my Grandma is what truly made me fall in love with reading. So many memories and happy conversations tied around this series (as well as others down the road), discussing which actors we thought would do this series justice, etc. I miss her more than I can ever put into words. I pre-ordered this book before it came out, knowing that it would be hard to read and that I wasn’t going to read it right away. I was waiting for the right moment. December 19th would have been her 73rd birthday, but she passed away three years ago while I was pregnant with our third child (who also happens to share her middle name). Happy Birthday, Grandma, this one’s for you. ❤️

I 100% rated this five-stars and would highly recommend to everyone, especially those who are already familiar with the Stephanie Plum series. Twisted Twenty-Six is the perfect next installment to the previous twenty-five and the between-the-numbers holiday novellas. If you're looking for an edge-of-your-seat crime thriller, this one may not be for you. BUT, if you're looking for a highly entertaining read about a bounty hunter, her ex-ho partner-in-crime, her on-again-off-again cop boyfriend, her sex-on-a-stick badass mysterious mentor bounty hunter protector, and her small-town Burg living family with their too-sassy-for-her-own-good grandmother than look no further! 😜

Book Blurb:
This isn't another case. This is family.
How far will Stephanie Plum go to protect the one person who means the most to her? The stakes have never been higher in this latest adventure from #1 New York Times bestselling author Janet Evanovich.

Grandma Mazur, Stephanie Plum’s favorite family member and occasional partner in crime, has decided to get married again – this time to a local gangster named Jimmy Rosolli. If Stephanie has her doubts about this marriage, she doesn’t have to worry for long, because the groom drops dead of a heart attack 45 minutes after saying, “I do.” 

A sad day for Grandma Mazur turns into something far more dangerous when Jimmy’s former “business partners” are convinced that his new widow is keeping the keys to a financial windfall all to herself. But the one thing these wise guys didn’t count on was the widow’s bounty hunter granddaughter, who’ll do anything to save her.

Stephanie Plum has made a career of tracking down bad guys, but this time some of the worst people in all of New Jersey are coming after the most important person in her life – and she’s the only thing standing in their way.
