Book: One for the Money [Stephanie Plum, Book #1] by Janet Evanovich

This is the first book in this series. We meet many characters:

  • Stephanie Plum – She is out of work. Her car gets repossessed. She has to drive a powder blue Buick from the 50s. She tries to be a bounty hunter.
  • Grandma Mazur: A little old lady always looking to get into trouble. She shoots a chicken. Not to kill it though as it’s already dead and cooked.
  • Vinnie: Stephanie cousin who is a bail bondsmen. He gives her a job as a bounty hunter because she blackmails him.
  • Joe Morelli: This is Stephanie’s on again and off again boyfriend. He’s hot, he’s Italian, he’s a cop.

In this book she’s hard up on her luck. She lost her job and her car. She has to drive around the buick which she hates. She blackmails her cousin Vinnie to give her a job as a bounty hunter till she can get back on her feet. She gets a bond jumper for a $10,000 bond. She doesn’t have the equipment or the skills to catch this guy. She winds up having a psycho boxer after her. She makes some new friends and nearly gets them killed. This book is the ultimate comedy of errors. I won’t mention what happens to the poor cars in this book. You’ll have to read that yourself. I recommend some tissues. As you read this book you’ll laugh so hard you cry.
