The readers can download Sizzling Sixteen: A Stephanie Plum Novel Audiobook for free via Audible Free Trial.


Trenton, New Jersey, bounty hunter Stephanie Plum has inherited a "lucky" bottle from her Uncle Pip. Problem is, Uncle Pip didn't specify if the bottle brought good luck or bad luck. . . . BAD LUCK: Vinnie, of Vincent Plum Bail Bonds, has run up a gambling debt of $786,000 with mobster Bobby Sunflower and is being held until the cash can be produced. Nobody else will pay to get Vinnie back, leaving it up to Stephanie, office manager Connie, and file clerk Lula to raise the money if they want to save their jobs. GOOD LUCK: Being in the business of tracking down people, Stephanie, Lula, and Connie have an advantage in finding Vinnie. If they can rescue him, it will buy them some time to raise the cash. BAD LUCK: Finding a safe place to hide Vinnie turns out to be harder than raising $786,000. Vinnie's messing up Mooner's vibe, running up pay-per-view porn charges in Ranger's apartment, and making Stephanie question genetics. GOOD LUCK: Between a bonds office yard sale that has the entire Burg turning out, Mooner's Hobbit-Con charity event, and Uncle Pip's lucky bottle, they just might raise enough money to save the business, and Vinnie, from ruin. BAD LUCK: Saving Vincent Plum Bail Bonds means Stephanie can keep being a bounty hunter. In Trenton, this involves hunting down a man wanted for polygamy, a turnpike toilet paper bandit, and a drug dealer with a pet alligator named Mr. Jingles. GOOD LUCK: The job of bounty hunter comes with perks in the guise of Trenton's hottest cop, Joe Morelli, and the dark and dangerous security expert, Ranger. With any luck at all, Uncle Pip's lucky bottle will have Stephanie getting lucky---the only question is . . . with whom? Sizzling Sixteen . . . so hot, the pages might spontaneously combust!



  • To be honest, the storyline remains unchanged in 'Sizzling Sixteen: A Stephanie Plum Novel'. Stephanie finds herself caught between two love interests without making a decision. There is an excessive focus on the character Lulah, to the point where I couldn't bring myself to finish the book. The initial books were enjoyable due to their novelty, but unfortunately, there has been no development in Stephanie's character. She continues to engage in the same foolish behavior. If I were Ranger, I would break up with her as she is indecisive and immature.
  • Listening to Lorelei King narrate this series for so long makes me feel like she's an old friend. It's a challenge for any author to keep a series fresh after so many titles (16 + 4 Between the Numbers), but I still find the characters worth revisiting. What I enjoy most about these books is the relatable humanity of the characters and their everyday struggles. In this particular installment, the focus is on Vinny, a reckless bail bondsman who finds himself in deep gambling debt and must face the consequences. While it's not my favorite in the series, it still has the signature elements to appreciate: a dash of humor, moments of tenderness, and plenty of romantic tension. If you're a fan of this series, you'll find comfort in the familiar aspects of Stephanie and the gang that you love!
  • I might be in the minority, but hear me out. I'm starting to feel like Stephanie Plum and her shenanigans have become a bit predictable and tiresome. I mean, she's a grown woman who can't make up her mind between two guys. She constantly puts her grandmother's life in danger and acts so immature! I gave this book a 3 out of 5 rating because thankfully, we weren't subjected to her constantly changing feelings towards the two attractive men. There were a few moments where she interacted with them, but it wasn't as cheesy as in previous books. I appreciated that, for the most part, she was portrayed as an independent woman. It was about time, considering she's 27 and not from a wealthy background. I had a good laugh and shook my head at times, but overall, I enjoyed listening to this book for over 5 hours.
  • Janet Evanovich has definitely done it again with 'Sizzling Sixteen: A Stephanie Plum Novel'! This series never fails to bring me joy and entertainment. There's plenty of eye candy and guaranteed loads of laughter throughout.
  • I've listened to all the books in Janet Evanovich's series, including all 16 of them. Once again, Lorelei King did an amazing job. No one else can bring the characters to life like Lorelei does. If she couldn’t continue reading, they should just end the series. Sizzling Sixteen is a fantastic return from the 15th book in the series. Janet delivers a captivating blend of mystery and personal drama in the story. There's suspense, intrigue, and a touch of humor, all wrapped up in another thrilling Stephanie Plum adventure. This bounty hunter guarantees an enjoyable experience. I couldn't stop smiling and giggling from start to finish.
  • Janet, seriously, it's time to bring this series to a close and venture into something new. Every book feels like a carbon copy of the previous one. I dig the characters, don't get me wrong, but the scenarios are becoming stale and I'm fed up with Stephanie's indecisiveness regarding her love interests.
  • This audiobook is nothing like the previous ones in the series. It's a disappointment because I used to love the books, but the last few have not been as good. "Sizzling Sixteen" was particularly unappealing, and I couldn't even bring myself to finish listening to it. I regret not waiting, as I wouldn't give it a second chance now that I know what it's like.
