VISIONS OF SUGAR PLUMS by Janet Evanovich - SIGNED FIRST EDITION BOOKSee all titles by Janet Evanovich.
Stephanie Plum, the least organized bounty hunter and holiday shopper (Hard Eight,

chased from a toy factory by a mob of enraged elves. So bring out the plastic reindeer, strap on your jingle bells, and get ready to celebrate the holidays-Jersey style.
