One For The Money
One For The Money: A Stephanie Plum Novel | Janet Evanovich
136 posts | 356 read | 2 reading | 47 to read
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 worst, it could lead to murder. Witty, fresh, and full of surprises, One for the Money is among the most eagerly awaited crime novels of the season.

Day 9 of the #Fallisbooked challenge by @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks and @OriginalCyn620

#Cozy - I read a lot of fantasy and science fiction, which can often feature some dark themes, so when I need something lighter, the Stephanie Plum series is one of my favorite cozy reads. Stephanie‘s sense of humor always cracks me up, as does her trusty band of quirky supporting characters!

Alora So crazy. I was just looking through my childhood books at my moms house the other day and found a few of Janet‘s books (never read them but wondered if were any good) And then I saw your post about them! Lol maybe I‘ll have to read them 😂 I‘ve seen a few posts lately with her series 1mo

Christy2318 @CarolynM I haven‘t read 25 yet but it‘s been pretty much rote Stephanie & Lulu do wacky incompetent stuff and Steph dithers over Ranger & Joe with just a bit of Grandma for quite a few books now. 2mo

I've read this book a few years ago and wanted to read it again. I almost never read this genre of book. But I like it and want to read the other ones in the series.

Making my way through this fun series. I am on #4 but I am disappointed in the change of narrators. I loved Lori Petty for the voice of Stephanie Plum. I may switch over to the physical book if the current narrator is used for the rest of the series...

AkashaVampie Wow I didnt know it was that big of a series. I have the first couple on my tbr. 3mo

I'd give this ☆☆☆☆. I figured out who done it by page 250 and it reminded me of the TV show moonlighting. I liked the characters, the story was quirky, sassy and kept me interested. And of couse going back in time to the land of pay phones, pagers and built in car phones is always fun for me. A perfect beach read!

The Stephanie Plum novels by Janet Evanovich are my go to books. My mom got me into them this year, and I adore them. They are funny and spicy! If the cursed reading slump shows up I grab the next book in the series. Even when I just feel sad about life, they cheer up . I adore Stephanie's grandma and most likely in love with Joe Morelli 😍😍. I can rave about them all day.

Combining a couple of things on this cold night , finished this book for my #booked2019 winter
#newtoyouauthor You can‘t help but like Stephanie Plum , down on her luck since she lost her job and falling into the bounty hunter game to put food on the table & stop selling her furniture. Lots of twists & turns.I‘m sure many Littens have read the whole series,I enjoyed it. Also , about up to 3hrs 40 mins.in
#24b4monday @Andrew65 @TheReadingMermaid

Traci1 It's a great series that should probably have ended about book 12 or so. But I still read every one. If you haven't seen the movie (Katherine Heigl plays Stephanie), it's cute. 9mo
Leftcoastzen @Traci1 I will check out the film.I have read someone else mentioning the series sort of runs out of gas . 9mo
CarolynM What @Traci1 said. I keep reading (and enjoying) them even though they're not as good as the earlier ones. (edited) 9mo

I came to this series late and started at book #7. I decided to read this one now because it fit a couple of reading challenge prompts that I‘m trying to complete. While I‘m glad I learned more about the back stories of the main characters and while the story was somewhat entertaining, I didn‘t enjoy this book as much as the later ones in the series. 2/5⭐️
