Janet Evanovich

GLOBAL – We’re all over the Kindle app on the new Nokia Lumia smartphones. So as part of our Friday line-up of entertainment options for your Windows Phone, let’s throw in an e-book recommendation. New Jersey bounty hunter Stephanie Plum is a guilty pleasure. Janet Evanovich’s heroine is now solving her eighteenth mystery, and her books have been seen tucked under the arm of everyone and anyone, including Bill Clinton. 

If you want a tense, densely plotted, thriller this is probably not for you. But if you want to laugh out loud at classic Stephanie Plum moments – like when Grandma Mazur shot the turkey – this might be more up your street.

Enjoy classic Stephanie Plum dilemmas – will she eat that cannoli, pay for her clapped out used-car to be fixed, or get together with her childhood sweetheart Joe Morelli – rather than the sexier, and more dangerous, Ranger? 

Explosive Eighteen

In Explosive Eighteen Stephanie steps on the plane from a hellish holiday in Hawaii, but finds that her seatmate mysteriously disappears during a stopover in LA – only to be found later stuffed in a garbage can.

Only one other person has seen the missing photograph the dead man was supposed to be carrying – and yes, it happens to be Stephanie Plum.

Will she end up in a garbage can herself? Read on to find out…
