Kenny Mancuso shot his childhood buddy Moogey Bues and then jumped bail. Now bounty hunter Stephanie Plum is on the case to track Kenny down. Then someone finished Moogey off, Kenny can't be found, twenty-four coffins are missing, and there's some ex-army heavy artillery roaming the streets. And Joe Morelli - the cop with more than a professional interest in her every move - is tailing Stephanie. With a healthy disregard for the law, and an unhealthy dependence on marshmallow hot chocolate, Stephanie's a match for anyone - even Morelli. That is, until her eccentric grandmother goes AWOL and little pieces of corpses start to disappear...
Been looking for this book in hardcover for a while, glad this one is in great shape and i can enjoy reading it!

Review of "Two For the Dough"
This book sees bounty-hunter Stephanie Plum going after Kenny Mancuso, who is related to Trenton cop Joe Morelli. Stephanie is learning more about her job all the time and is assisted by her grandmother, her friend Lula and bounty-hunter extraordinaire Ranger. She and Joe fight a lot but are definitely attracted to each other. I always like a touch of romance in with a mystery novel.
I enjoyed this book and will soon be reading ?Three to Get Deadly?.

Two for the Dough
Stephanie Plum the main character is always a disaster waiting to happen. In this book she always gets herself into unimaginable predicaments. This book is so entertaining, funny as can be and really holds the readers interest. It is light and easy reading.

Publishers Weekly, 1996-07-08 Return of sassy New Jersey bounty hunter Stephanie Plum in Evanovich's followup to One for the Money. (Sept.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
Publishers Weekly, 1995-11-13 Sassy, brassy Stephanie Plum, the bounty hunter from Trenton, N.J., introduced to acclaim in last year's One for the Money, returns to track a bond jumper through her blue-collar neighborhood known as the ``burg.'' A local funeral home, a slimy undertaker and mutilated corpses figure large in the search for Kenny Mancuso, who, having shot an old high-school friend in the knee, posted bail with Stephanie's boss, her cousin, and then disappeared. When the old friend is shot again, fatally, Stephanie reluctantly joins forces with her sexy enemy and love interest, Trenton homicide cop Joe Morelli. While looking for Kenny, Stephanie also searches for 24 caskets stolen from Spiro Stiva, heir apparent of Stiva's Mortuary and also a high-school buddy of Kenny's. As body parts, cut from ``clients'' on view at Stiva's, are used to warn people off the case, Stephanie and Morelli spar in a lively if expected fashion and Stephanie's feisty gun-toting Grandma Mazur forsakes her usual routine of talk-show TV and attending wakes to join the fight against crime. Readers will likely stay a few steps ahead of the sleuths, but the sharp repartee and Stephanie's slightly cynical but still fond relationship with her family and the burg hold a treasury of urban-style charms. $100,000 ad/promo; Mystery Guild selection; Literary Guild alternate selection; author tour.
