Wonderful, amazing story! I realize it has been nearly 5 years since your last update, but if there is any way you can, please please finish this story! Your talent and skill are head and shoulders above the rest, and it takes someone of your caliber to do justice to a conclusion for Stephanie Plum (it certainly doesn't look like we will ever get a satisfying conclusion out of Janet Evanovich! ). So please update!

6 year old review, but here it goes )
I agree with Ranger and Mary Lou - the Joe/Steph relationship is bad - Joe wants to control Steph and Steph realizes this which is why they have the constant on and off and fighting. It is seriously unhealthy. Ranger if he would agree to an actual relationship instead of friends with benefits would be good - he is not trying to changer her other than perhaps helping her not go off half cocked on a whim - planning is better than just bouncing around in her job [that is one reason she ends up rolling in crap on a pick up.] If she could work on getting more physically fit, learning some self defense and learning to use her weapon she would be much better off [though no longer comic relief, I guess.] She needs to dump Joe, and have a serious discussion with Ranger.

Great story! I can't wait for the conclusion. Gotta catch Alicia, figure out who Steph's stalker is, see how Grandma's calendar turns out, what Ranger's reaction to the watch is, and more. Looks like things are getting cozy between Joe and Gina, doesn't it? So Steph shouldn't have to feel guilty for long. Hee-hee! Full speed ahead! Go for the gusto, Girl!
I hope the changes in your life worked out well and that you will soon have time to post" the rest of the story". (with apologies to Paul Harvey!)

I've read a ton of Babe stories on this site, and this one is EXCEPTIONAL. Please continue it. I don't see J.E. getting back on the rails any time soon, and your writing really hits the spot. Thank you very much.

Hello. Even thought it has been a really long time since you have posted this story, I just wanted to let you know that I really enjoyed reading it. Yes the story is not finished but where you left off is comfortable (at least we know that She is in Ranger's space, has broken up the engagement and Ranger knows it. I would love to know who the red rose stalker is (imho:I do not think he is dangerous, his adoration just got swept into Alicia's thread). You are a seriously talented writer. Your story flows, the details allow the reader to see "see" the scene and actors. Great job. Thank you for sharing.

I love this story! I know real life can be a bitch (mine certainly has been), but if you ever get the urge to write more ... As it is though, it's spectacular. Thanks for writing and sharing.

Fantastic story! I loved the way you portrayed all the characters - keeping their idiosyncrasies without turning them into unbelievable stereotypes. Hope that someday you come back to this!

Wow. This story is absolutely amazing! You are an incredibly gifted writer. I love your treatment of the characters. They all stay in character, while at the same time moving forward with their lives (something JE has not done of late, sadly). I hope you update soon!

Phenomenal story! It's July 2014 and I just found this story. It's exactly what I wish JE would do with ranger and stephanie in the books. I have read many of these Plum fanfiction a and this is by far one if the best. Thanks!
