Series: The Stephanie Plum series
Author: Janet Evanovich // twitter
Genre: Mystery, Chick Lit
Publisher: St. Martin’s Griffin
Stephanie Plum is 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 blue-collar Trenton, where houses are attached and narrow, cars are American, windows are clean, and dinner is served at six.
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. And that’s only the beginning of series that will set her on the trail of fugitives. Stephanie will have to sharpen her sleuthing skills, because she’s got many a mystery to solve.
What I Like:
The kooky characters, humorous situations, and Stephanie’s wacky family. The series is made of the fun, fluffy stuff that perfectly fits a beach read or vacation time.
What I Didn’t Like:
Sometimes the plots can fall into cookie-cutter patterns or flows into ridiculous situations that can be a little hard to believe.
Do I Recommend?
Yes! This series is perfect for the fun-loving mystery reader, or a reader looking to get back into reading.
Ooh, hard to pick! I think the first book, One for the Money, is one that I return to again and again.
Well, Stephanie. Of course! Then it’s a tie between Stephanie’s love interest Joe Morelli, her sidekick Lula, and her wacky grandma.
Yup. You should read it!
