One for the Money
(Stephanie Plum #1)
by Janet Evanovich (1994)
You’ve lost your job as a department store lingerie buyer, your car’s been repossessed, and most of your furniture and small appliances have been sold off to pay last month’s rent. Now the rent is due again. And you live in New Jersey. What do you do?
If you’re Stephanie Plum, you become a bounty hunter.
It’s easy to see why this author and the series is so popular. The writing is clear, so are the characters and plot. And while most of the people the usual crime stereotypes, there is enough depth and variety to keep things interesting.
The best part of the tone of the book, while it is a crime story, there is wit and charm in Stephanie to make it an enjoyable read.
The only question is; given the scrapes and close calls, how is it that the character appears to have survived through 26 full length novels…
Only one way to find out……..
