I am already 60% through this book. I had to force myself to put it down so that I could quickly write-up the review for the second book.
A “saintly” old candy-store owner is on the lam-and bounty hunter extraordinaire Stephanie Plum is on the case. As the body count rises, Stephanie Plum finds herself dealing with dead drug dealers and slippery fugitives on the chase of her life. And with the help of eccentric friends and family, Steph must see to it that this case doesn’t end up being her last…
Back to the beginning!
After reading Smokin’ Seventeen .. I find myself forced to start over and reread the Plum series 🙂
Back to One for the Money .. I am looking forward to keeping my husband up late at night with my laughter ..
I find myself trying to stay quiet for him .. light on dim .. he’s sleeping next to me .. then WHAM! Lula and Stephanie suck me in again and I cannot help but to bust out laughing .. so hard that I’m crying ot snorting .. what can I say … the Plum series is brilliantly funny .. and worth every penny and moment of your time!
One fine mess:
Welcome to Trenton, New Jersey, home to wiseguys, average Joes, and Stephanie Plum, who sprts 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 move:
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…
One for the money:
Abject 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…
