#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR

JANET EVANOVICH

ONE FOR THE MONEY

A Stephanie Plum Novel

"Comes roaring in like a blast of very fresh air...Goes down like a tall, cool, drink."

-The Washington Post

READ THE DYNAMITE BLOCKBUSTER THAT STARTED IT ALL!

"Snappily written, fast paced and witty."

-USA Today

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...

"Evanovich is funny and ceaselessy inventive."

-Los Angeles Times Book Review

"Evanovich's writing is smooth, clever and laugh-aloud. Her plot is ingenious and fresh, her dialogue breezy, bright, witty, and gutsy."

-Booklist p0(starred Review)

This book is fairly predictable - I could pretty much tell what was going to happen from the first chapter. The first person narrative took a couple of chapters to get used to but this is nothing new. I always struggle at first with first person narrative.

Having said that, however, I found this book to be an enjoyable read. It was light enough to read when I was winding down at night, yet interesting enough that I will be reading the rest of the series. Overall, I would say it is worth reading.

This is truly a laugh-out-loud book (and series)! Not only are the characters hilarious (and truly addicting), I can't help but crave Stephanie's favorite foods. Read the first one and you'll be itching for the next book in the series before you are through.

It's a quick read and a great escape from reality. I LOVE Stephanie and all the characters really (grandma, etc.). I didn't think I was going to like it at first, but eventually couldn't put it down, so stick with it if it doesn't grab you right away.
