    Watch out, world. Here comes Stephanie Plum, a bounty hunter with attitude. In Stephanie's opinion, toxic waste, rabid drivers, armed schizophrenics, and August heat, humidity, and hydrocarbons are all part of the great adventure of living in Jersey.


    ITEM#: 2555771

    Janet Evanovich, formerly from South River, New Jersey, now lives in northern Virginia. One for the Money is her first crime novel.
    Watch out, world. Here comes Stephanie Plum, a bounty hunter with attitude. In Stephanie's opinion, toxic waste, rabid drivers, armed schizophrenics, and August heat, humidity, and hydrocarbons are all part of the great adventure of living in Jersey.
    She's a product of the "burg," a blue-collar pocket of Trenton where houses are attached and narrow, cars are American, windows are clean, and (God forbid you should be late) dinner is served at six.
    Now Stephanie's all grown up and out on her own, living five miles from Mom and Dad's, doing her best to sever the world's longest umbilical cord. Her mother is a meddler, and her grandmother is a few cans short of a case.
    Out of work and out of money, with her Miata repossessed and her refrigerator empty, Stephanie blackmails her bail bondsman cousin, Vinnie, into giving her a try as an apprehension agent. Stephanie knows zilch about the job requirements, but she figures her new pal, fearless bounty hunter Ranger, can teach her what it takes to catch a crook.
    Her first assignment: nail Joe Morelli, a former vice cop on the run from a charge of murder one. Morelli is also the irresistible macho pig who took Stephanie's virginity at age sixteen and then wrote the details on the bathroom wall of Mario's Sub Shop. There's still powerful chemistry between these two, so the chase should be interesting.
    It could also be extremely dangerous, especially when Stephanie encounters a heavyweight title contender who likes to play rough. Benito Ramirez is known for his brutality to women. At the very least, his obsession with Stephanie complicates her manhunt and brings terror and uncertainty into her life. At worst, it could lead to murder.
    Witty, fresh, and full of surprises, One for the Money is among the most eagerly awaited crime novels of the season.

    • One For The Money

      Janet Evanovich is a really good writer. Her characters are well drawn, and the pace of the book is fast and funny. I bought this book to replace a book club addition as I tend to re-read Ms. Evanovich's books when I need a relaxing break from life's little stresses. Book club editions don't hold up well during multiple re-reads, and loans to friends. I would highly recommend the Stephanie Plum Series.

    • This book is laugh out loud funny. I could not put it down and it just kept me laughing. My husband, who hates to read, finally asked to read it to see what was so funny and actually enjoyed it, too.

    • This is a laugh out loud funny book. Stephanie Plum kept me in stitches until the very end. First in the series of Stephanie Plum books it is a light and easy read.

    • This book is so funny. I kept laughing out loud and my husband asked me to read him the funny parts. You'll want to read all 10 of them, and when the 11th one is out, you'll rush out to get it too. Great reading.
