One for the Money

Title: "One for the Money" (first book in the Stephanie Plum series)

Author: Janet Evanovich

Book Type: Paperback Mystery

Pages: 320

Synopsis: This is the first installment of the Stephanie Plum series. Stephanie Plum is a woman who has hit desperate times. She lost her job as a lingerie buyer, has a clunker of a car, has resorted to eating most meals with her crazy family. She needs cash fast! Soon, she finds that she has to resort to working for her creepy cousin Vinnie in his bail bonds office as a bond agent. She has no experience but that doesn't stop her from going after bail jumper, Joe Morelli who is a local vice cop. Joe has been a pain in Stephanie's neck ever since he looked up her dress as a child to when he got in her pants as a teen. Luckily the skills she learns as a bounty hunter come in handy when Stephanie learns she has a crazed boxer, Benito Ramirez after her. Will she be able to turn in Morelli for the $10,000 fee she'll make before Ramirez gets his hands on her?

My Thoughts: This is a good start to an amazing series. I found that I loved the later books much more than this first installment but I'd recommend reading this series in order because there are many smaller storylines and relationships between the characters that need to be followed. At times I'd find myself giggling out loud at the antics of the characters. I highly recommend this series if you're in the mood for a light, easy read.

My Rating: 3.5/5 (really good read)
