Explosive Eighteen is one of the best Stephanie Plum books I have read. At the end of Smoking Seventeen Stephanie was off to Hawaii but we were unsure with whom, this one starts out with her trip home, she mentions she left both Morelli and Ranger in Hawaii and has a tan line on her bare ring finger that she is unwilling to explain. This was so hard to not jump ahead and find out what happened. It took all my effort to just read and let the story play out. I believe that Stephanie is starting to finally realize that she has to make a decision between her two loves though I am hoping for a big surprise and maybe Diesel will steal her right from under their noses. Laugh out loud funny !!
