Two For The Dough

by Janet Evanovich

‘Stephanie Plum’ series Book #2

Bounty hunter Stephanie Plum debuted in Janet Evanovich’s award-winning One For The Money. Here, she’s back, packing a whole lot of attitude – not to mention stun guns, defense sprays, and a .38 Smith & Wesson. This time around, she’s on the trail of Kenny Mancuso, a boy from the working-class burg of Trenton, New Jersey, who has just shot his best friend. Fresh out of the Army and suspiciously wealthy, Mancuso’s also distantly related to Joe Morelli, a vice cop with questionable ethics, a libido in permanent overdrive, and a habit of horning in on Stephanie’s investigations.

Aided by her tough bounty hunter pal, Ranger, and her funeral-happy Grandma Mazur, Stephanie’s soon staggering knee-deep in corpses, trying to shake Morelli, and stirring up a very nasty enemy.

Review: Awesome! I already know I won’t be able to get enough of this series. I lost track of how many times I burst out laughing. And the characters… They’re written as if in real life. LOL, every time Stephanie’s eye twitched, I could almost see her beat her head against the wall. Grandma Mazur jars me out, her dad makes me think of my grandfather, and her mom… what can I say! She may be half Hungarian and half Italian, but the Italian in her shines through. And dammit, when is Joe going tomake a move? I love the way he and Stephanie banter and agrue with each other, ahow she turns to mush when he’s being sincere… That girl needs some martial arts training, LOL!
