One for the Money by Janet Evanovich




I have fallen in love with this series, I am usually not a series fan, having to keep up with reading each one in order so on and so forth, but I really have taken a shine to the whole Stephanie Plum persona. Shes not someone you can't imagine being friends with, its like you have met, known or know a Stephanie right now. Just an average woman who got a very interesting job! Give yourself a chance to try this series I am sure you will find it as entertaining as I have.

Synopsis

Watch out, world. Here comes Stephanie Plum, a bounty hunter with attitude. In Stephanie's opinion, toxic waste, rabid drivers, armed schizophrenics, and August heat, humidity, and hydrocarbons are all
part of the great adventure of living in Jersey.

She's a product of the "burg," a blue-collar pocket of Trenton where houses are attached and narrow, cars are American, windows are clean, and (God forbid you should be late) dinner is served at six.

Now Stephanie's all grown up and out on her own, living five miles from Mom and Dad's, doing her best to sever the world's longest umbilical cord. Her mother is a meddler, and her grandmother is a few
cans short of a case.

Out of work and out of money, with her Miata repossessed and her refrigerator empty, Stephanie blackmails her bail bondsman cousin, Vinnie, into giving her a try as an apprehension agent. Stephanie knows
zilch about the job requirements, but she figures her new pal, fearless
bounty hunter Ranger, can teach her what it takes to catch a crook.

Her first assignment: nail Joe Morelli, a former vice cop on the run from a charge of murder one. Morelli is also the irresistible macho pig who took Stephanie's virginity at age sixteen and then wrote the
details on the bathroom wall of Mario's Sub Shop. There's still
powerful chemistry between these two, so the chase should be
interesting.

It could also be extremely dangerous, especially when Stephanie encounters a heavyweight title contender who likes to play rough. Benito Ramirez is known for his brutality to women. At the very least,
his obsession with Stephanie complicates her manhunt and brings terror
and uncertainty into her life. At the worst, it could lead to murder.

Witty, fresh, and full of surprises, One for the Money was among the most eagerly awaited crime novels of the season.
