Alexandra (Barney) Barnaby roars onto the Miami Beach scene in hot pursuit of her missing baby brother, "Wild" Bill. Leave it to the maverick of the family to get Barney involved with high-speed car chases, a search for sunken treasure, and Sam Hooker, a NASCAR driver who's good at revving a woman's engine.

Engaged in a deadly race, Bill has "borrowed" Hooker's sixty-five-foot Hatteras and sailed off into the sunset...just when Hooker has plans for the boat. Hooker figures he'll attach himself to Barney and maybe run into scumbag Bill. And better yet, maybe he'll get lucky in love with Bill's sweetie pie sister.

The pedal will have to go to metal if Barney and Hooker want to be the first to cross the finish line, save Bill, Hooker's boat...and maybe the world.

This main character is interesting. Her hook-up with the various characters is also interesting. The ending wasn't obvious for me. I enjoyed the book, yet her hook-up with the NASCAR guy early in the book seems awfully convenient. Too convenient. Whatever they need, he has the connections to make it happen. Like others have said, I prefer the Stephanie Plum bounty hunter series to this one.

Amusing read, but reminds me of a pallid imitation of the Stephanie Plum novels. The side kick is a Cuban version of Lula. I adore JE's Stephanie Plum novels, but her other series that she co-writes with other authors are insipid in comparison.

Like all Evanovich's books, fun and exciting. A great beach read!

This is the first time I have read Janet Evanovich. There was some moments that I found myself laughing out loud

This book is very bizarre... but surprisingly easy to read.
It's my first Janet Evanovich novel and I have to admit that I'm quite curious to see if any of her others are this bizarre/exciting.

It's basically a fun packed book about a girl who fixes engines (out to rescue her brother) and someone named Hooker (NASCAR guy).

For starters the names/nicknames of the characters in the book are a bit outrageous: Hooker, Puke Face, Slick and Gimpy (kinda like Ren and Stimpy), and Hooker has this entertaining habit of calling himself "NASCAR guy" and speaking about himself in the third person.

I didn't know what I was getting into when I started it, but I was overall pleasantly surprised. The best part of the book was that it wasn't raunchy! There were no unnecessary hot and heated sex scenes (yet it still has that verbal sparring, in a cute way)!

I don't like this as much as the bounty hunter series.
