One for the Money


Item Details

ONE FINE MESS 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. 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. As 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.

The author writes with great style and sassy humour but her heroine's brassy, wisecracking personality jars with her endless bumblings at her new job. It's like Batman, dark and scary but constantly getting his cape caught on doors. Uncomfortably embarrassing.

I LOVE THE BOOK SO MUCH!!! I caught myself laughing out loud in the train!!!! (which was embarrassing).

Very funny and entertaining. Occasionally I had to suspend my disbelief, but Evanovich kept me turning the pages. I plan to read other books in the series.

If you want to laugh out loud, read this book. If you are looking for "good" literature, go elsewhere. The movie doesn't do justice to the books.

I really don't see what the fuss is about. Sure Stephanie Plum's got a smart mouth, but Evanovich's screwball romances are way more fun. I found this story downright creepy - not just the bad guys, who are as bad as they could possibly be, but the heroine and "hero" are both seriously screwed up. You want funny mysteries, try Donna Andrews. Light-hearted and fun - way more to my taste.

Love the fun and lightheartedness of this book and Stephanie Plum. One of my husband's co-workers had given me Explosive Eighteen (which was my first read in the series) and I was not impressed at all. However, I decided to start from the beginning of the series and was not disappointed!

One of the most interesting books I have read.

I put off reading the first Plum because I didn't think I would like it. Turned out to be funny and I end up liking it. Now onto seeing the movie...

A recently-laid off woman is down to her last few dollars. She's hocked everything she has and is forced to work for her bail bondsman uncle as a bounty hunter just to buy groceries. The story follows her exploits at learning the business while tracking a most uncanny bond-skipper. In the interim, she meets up with some really inscrutable characters.

This series is about about a woman bounty hunter, her co-workers, foes, friends, and family. Often you can relate to her misadventures, other times they are so out there you know they can't really be true, but you laugh anyway.
