About this ebook

Discover where it all began—#1 New York Times bestselling author Janet Evanovich’s first “snappily written, fast-paced, and witty” (USA TODAY) novel in the beloved Stephanie Plum series featuring a feisty and funny heroine who “comes roaring in like a blast of very fresh air” (The Washington Post).

Meet Stephanie Plum, 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 the “burg,” a blue-collar pocket of Trenton where houses are attached and narrow, cars are American, windows are clean, and (God forbid you should be late) dinner is served at six.

Out of work and out of money, Stephanie blackmails her bail-bondsman cousin Vinnie into giving her a try as an apprehension agent. Stephanie knows zilch about the job requirements, but she figures her new pal, el-primo bounty hunter Ranger, can teach her what it takes to catch a crook. Her first assignment: nail Joe Morelli, a former vice cop on the run from a charge of murder one. Morelli’s the inamorato who charmed Stephanie out of her virginity at age sixteen. There’s still powerful chemistry between them, so the chase should be interesting…and could also be extremely dangerous.

While she may never be studied in the nations colleges and universities Ms Evanovitch definitely has a talent for keeping a reader interested. This effort has me wondering what sort of trouble Ms Plum may get herself into next. I will continue to read on so I suppose that One For the Money may not go down in the literary world as a classic it should be on the literary "Must Read" list. Just the opinion of an average reader. I should also say that it was recommended and even highly praised by my mother.

I hadn't heard of Stephanie Plum until recently, at least not that I remember. Finally picked up 'One for the Money' and couldn't put it down. Stephanie Plum cracks me up! Looking forward to continuing this series to see what more trouble she manages gets into, where things go with Morelli and hearing more from the crazy Granny. 😁
