Now Reading – One For The Money


About a week ago, I made a trip to the library to pick up a couple of books, one of which was a book by an author my sister recommended to me.  One of those books is One for the Money by Janet Evanovich.  My little sister felt that I might really like this author, and in particular, the Stephanie Plum series of books.  So I decided to go with my sister’s recommendation, and felt it was worth a check out from the library.  I checked out the paperback version from the library and here’s what the back of the book says:

Welcome 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.

Stephanie lands a gig at her sleazy cousin Vinnie’s bail bonding company.  She’s got no experience, but that doesn’t matter.  Neither 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.

Abject poverty is a great motivator for learning new skills, but just 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.

I’m certainly hoping my little sister hasn’t recommended a dud.  But I’m looking forward to finding out!  Let me know if you’ve read One for the Money, I’d love to hear what you think/thought about it.

  1. I’ve read other Stephanie Plum novels. It’s pure fluff. It’s nice after heavier reads.
