ONE FINE MESSWelcome to Trenton, New Jersey, home to wiseguys, average Joes, and Stephanie Plum, who sports a big attitude and even bigger money problems (since losing her job as a lingerie buyer for a department store). Stephanie needs cash-fast-but times are tough, and soon she's forced to turn to the last resort of the truly desperate: family...ONE FALSE MOVEStephanie lands a gig at her sleazy cousin Vinnie's bail bonding company. She's got no experience. But that doesn't matter. As does the fact that the bail jumper in question is local vice cop Joe Morelli. From the time he first looked up her dress to the time he first got into her pants, to the time Steph hit him with her father's Buick, M-o-r-e-l-l-i has spelled t-r-o-u-b-l-e. And now the hot guy is in hot water-wanted for murder...ONE FOR THE MONEYAbject poverty is a great motivator for learning new skills, but being trained in the school of hard knocks by people like psycho prizefighter Benito Ramirez isn't. Still, if Stephanie can nab Morelli in a week, she'll make a cool ten grand. All she has to do is become an expert bounty hunter overnight-and keep herself from getting killed before she gets her man...

3✨The storyline for me was not enjoyable at the beginning. The crude wording throughout the book is something I would expect from a male author, but the characters did cause me to care about them. I want to continue the series, but maybe not own the rest. The mystery gave a good dose of twists and turns, and there was a lot of laugh out loud moments. #DogsofLitsy “Monica”

“It was two years ago,” he said, dancing away from me. “Shit, Stephanie, it‘s unattractive to hold a grudge.”
“You are scum, Morelli. Scum.”
“Probably,” Morelli said, “but I give good . . . pizza.”

I know these books are ridiculous and can be formulaic. However, they can be fun, silly, and a comfort read. I will say, though, that the boxer in this one is too much for me and I often skip some of the details. 😕 I love Grandma Mazur.

Solid 3 stars. I work with trauma victims so I was not pleased with the level of violence and abuse. Major trigger warnings here ⚠️

The main character was unlikable but that makes perfect sense considering it's book 1 in a long series.

I liked the concept of her being a bounty hunter but im not sure it was successfully executed. Some of her dialog was so far fetched from normal everyday conversations.

I'll unlikely I'll pick up book 2.

brittanythebookdragon I read book 18 (kind of) like a year or so ago and I DNF because it‘s the same every book. Also, after 18 books, the love triangle is tiresome and frustrating. I wonder how I‘d feel about this series if I picked it up now versus back in senior year of high school when I found book 1. 2y
LoverOfLearning Ahh yeah that seems like a fair assessment. I can say that if I picked this book up in high-school I would've had a way different perspective and likely would've picked up book 2. 2y

Thanks for the tag @Eggs I didn't totally drop the ball this time! #WondrousWednesday 🦋❤

1. I have no idea, but it could be any of the following Charlaine Harris, Janet Evanovich, Cassandra Clare or Agatha Christie. All write very entertaining series.

2. I will read literally anywhere. Preference in NE in Feb is couch/living room.

3. I used to. It's a fun concept. But I kind of read all of the time now in the new normal.

Eggs Love Charlaine Harris❤️ Thanks for playing 🙏🏻 2y

I have definitely been seeing Janet Evanovich‘s books in bookstores, etc. for years and always passed despite hearing good things. I finally figured I‘d give the author a try. Anytime I start a new series, I have to start at the very beginning. I like Stephanie Plum well enough. I‘m not hooked on the series just yet, but I am willing to read the next one to see the potential of this author.

This is between a pick and so-so for me. I had to keep reminding myself that Stephanie was new to bounty hunting because, boy did she do some stupid stuff. I‘ve heard such wonderful things about this series that I will give the second book a go.

This was my second finish for #nutsinmay another finish for #seriesread2021 and my #bookspin for February and May 😂

Traci1 Haha, Steph never really gets past the doing stupid stuff level of bounty hunting. But the books are great fun. Lula and Grandma Mazur kind of steal the show, though. 3y

The Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich has made me laugh out loud. These books are my guilty pleasure!

Thanks for the tag @Eggs and @DarkMina ! ❤️❤️

slategreyskies That series cracks me up! I still remember the scene where Lula was on the Atkins diet and carrying bacon in her pockets, only to be chased down the street by a dog wanting her bacon. I laughed so hard I cried! 😂 😂 😂 4y

This is a reread for me. I‘ve enjoyed the first 15 books or so of this series and this is not my first reread of the earlier books. The characters are entertaining and memorable, even if the plots are not. I always forget how this one ends and I always forget that this is the one with the creepy, giggling, psychopathic boxer. Ramirez gives me nightmares. Not a huge fan of this narrator. I prefer Lorelei King who does later books.

Traci1 I've gone back and reread this one a couple times, and it's always a little jarring for me because this one seems a bit darker and more menacing than the later books. 4y
DGRachel @Traci1 You‘re right. I don‘t remember the others being nearly as scary. I may have to do a reread of the whole series on audio soon. 4y

#top20series #20series20days

Another love/hate series. When I first started the series 20 years ago Stephanie Plum was new and exciting but now after 26 books her shtick is old. I still keep reading with hope that the series will end and Stephanie will finally pick between Joe and Ranger.

I missed day 1 so here are two of my #top20series. The Stephanie Plum novels always make me laugh. I know so people say they are redundant at this point but I always look forward to a new one and a new set of laughs. The Mortal Instrument series is a love from high school. I love the magic, romance and overall story line. I‘m in the middle of a reread of this one #20series20days
