Wanted to really like this book. I know she has written tons and they are supposed to be good and funny, it just didn't quite make it for me. Yes, it's funny at times, and the writing is lively, but I found it predictable and trite. I think this is okay for a summer read, but I am not compelled to read the rest of her books.

Review of "One for the Money"

by LadyPI on Jul 11, 2009

This is the book where we get introduced to female-sleuth Stephanie Plum, her mom & dad, Grandma Mazur, Joe Morelli, Ranger, Cousin Vinnie and Lula. Stephanie had been working in Newark as a discount lingerie buyer but got laid off from her job. Her mother mentions Cousin Vinnie has a filing job at his bail bonds company. So Stephanie goes to check it out, only to find that job has been filled. However there is an opening doing 'skip tracing': AKA bounty hunting. The job involves finding people that don't show up for their scheduled court appearance. If she succeeds, she can earn 10% of the posted bond amount. So off Stephanie goes into one madcap adventure after another. This is a great first novel for a great series!

I love Janet Evanovich's books. This book was absolutely hilarious as well as suspenseful, interesting, and very easy reading. Great book.


"The Sopranos" on estrogen

by JMail on Apr 30, 2008

I love this series! Grandma Mazur is absoeffinlutely too real to be fictitious. The Jersey attitude, the sexy female Clousseau and her "which guy?" quandary, the mother drowning in de nile, and so on. Zany, yes, but a good (scary, at times) thriller thrown in each time. It's Laverne and Shirley meets The Bounty Hunter meets Monk. Like I said, The Sopranos on estrogen. Get it and be prepared to laugh out loud while being kept on the edge of your seat.
