'It's all about hanging out with Metro Girl and NASCAR Guy'. Mystery/Humor

Normally, I'd steer clear of books with pink covers (especially pink covers with soft focus illustrations) but there is nothing soft and romantic about this pink.  This pink says 'I am Metro Girl, eat my dust'.  Evanovich's new heroine is Alexandra Barnaby (known as Barney) a woman who sets the tone of the book from her opening line, 'Just because I know how to change a guy's oil doesn't mean I want to spend the rest of my life on my back, staring up his undercarriage.'  Barney comes from Baltimore and is passionate about cars, having grown up in her father's garage, but she's also pretty keen on the good things in life which is why she holds down her day job in an office.  That is until her brother goes missing in Florida and she sets off to find him.
