In One for the Money, the first book in a series that currently includes includes fifteen volumes and 5 shorter supplementary novels, Janet Evanovich introduces her readers to Stephanie Plum. Stephanie is a woman from the close-knit Chambersburg neighborhood of Trenton New Jersey which the locals call “The Burg” where every good hostess always has coffee cake for guests and dinner is served promptly at 6pm (God help anyone who isn’t there on time).

After being laid off from her job a a lingerie buyer, her mother suggests that she get a job filing at a family cousin’s bail bond agency. however when she arrives the position ahs been filled and Stephanie blackmails him into giving her a job as a Bail Enforcement Agent (Bounty Hunter). Her Job? To catch the neighborhood bad boy turned cop, Joseph Morelli, before she gets evicted from from her apartment and has to move back in with her mother father as well as her Grandma Mazur who is in her mid seventies and doesn’t look a day over ninety. Stephanie is a bounty hunter in a neighborhood where nearly everyone carries a gun but she keeps hers at home in the cookie jar next to her hamster Rex’s cage.

Stephanie’s lack of bounty hunting skills is made up for both by the humorous situations and captures that she attempts as well as her own personal Doctor Doolittle in the form of a good looking Cuban-American named Ranger who is described as having the stealth of batman and skills that make Rambo look like a novice.

If you enjoy your mystery with a generous dose of humor then the adventures of Stephanie Plum are for you!

I love these books. They are great on audio! Ranger is awesome. Joe Morelli is great, too. But I love Lula most. They make me laugh out loud!
