One for the Money, as great as this series is, really didn’t show you the potential of laughter to come.
Two for the Dough changes everything! The relationship between Stephanie and Morelli will leave you smiling. All of the wonderful little things in a relationship that bugs you, you’ll find in theirs. The awkward moments to the pitter patter wonder moments.
Grandma Mazur really steps on stage with her need to pay her respects to the dead. Skipping her feet to help her granddaugh...more
This book was just as good as the first one. Evanovich still had me chuckling.
I must say I was VERY excited to see that Joe Morelli was also in book 2. I thought he was going to be gone when book 1 finished. I was very happy to see he is a part of the cast of characters that is going to be sticking around. He is a great character, mysterious, sexy character...more

NOTE: I am know I am one of the last people ever to start reading this series but better late than never right? It is as fun (so far) as people said. Stephanie Plum is one hot mess :)
Audio Review: C.J. Critt actually did a wonderful job with the narration. My problem was with the long pauses between chapters. I am guessing that it is because the book may have been recorded for cassette tape rendering.
However, we all know that there are another 15 or so episodes to read, so that's a minor complaint.
I read these first two in the series because folk...more
With her bounty hunter pal Ranger stepping in occasionally to advise her, Stephanie staggers kneedeep in corpses and caskets as she traipses through back streets, dark alleys, and funeral parlors.
And nobody k...more
Tamyra told me I should read Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series because Stephanie and I have something in common - things just "seem" to happen to us. Maria and I were talking about books and she said her Dad was reading them and sent her the first four which she loaned me. She also said they made her laugh out loud. Then, I was talking to Norene and she said she and her daughters have read all of the books.
OK, so I'm coming late to the party. But, I'm very...more
I'd say more but that would require a spoiler warning and you know how I hate those. (RIGHT)
Another book I listened to in my truck while at wo...more
Kenny is supposed to be an easy catch, but as it turns out there’s much more involved. Caskets go missing from Stiva’s funeral home, and then stolen ammun...more
Joe Morelli is back on the right side of the law this time, but his cousin is now the one that Stephanie is after. Since Joe comes from a large extended (and stereotypical) Italian family, Joe is also trying to track him down on his family’s behalf.
Thus Stephanie and Joe are now working towards the same goal. Sometimes, the t...more
I just finished reading Two for theDough by Janet Evanovich, and let me tell you, I was NOT disappointed! What a great second edition to the Stephanie Plum series!
Stephanie is back and still doing her best as a bounty hunter in Trenton, New Jersey. She's got her tough guy pal, Ranger, a total pro at the job, and super sexy Joe Morelli, helping her out whether she wants it or not!
It's Stephanie Plum, New Jersey's "fugitive apprehension" agent (aka bounty hunter), introduced to the world by Janet Evanovich in the award-winning novel One for the Money.
Now Stephanie's back, armed with attitude -- not to mention stun guns, defense sprays, killer flashlights, and her trusty .38, Stephanie is after a new bail jumper, Kenny Mancuso, a boy from Trenton's burg. He's fresh out of the army, suspiciously wealthy, and he's just shot his best friend.
With her bounty hunter pal Ranger s...more
In Two for the Dough, we notice that Stephanie has a close relationship with her Nana and I have to say I love Grandma Plum, she is such a hoot for an old lady- in a way she reminds me a cross betwee...more
In "Two for the Dough" Stephanie Plum, Jersey's bounty hunting gal in training, tries to track down Kenny: a sick scumbag who is smuggling goverment issued weaponry. Along with Stephanie's funeral-happy grandma, ex-pros...more
What happens when you are offered $10000 to search for coffins? Well you take it, duh! This is exactly what happens to our great Plum in the second installment of the Stephanie Plum series, Two for the Dough. Plum is still getting the hang of the bounty hunting thing searching for a man who shot a friend of his. But by chance, due to crazy Grandma Mazur’s obsession with funerals, Plum is offe...more
My review: Two for the Dough is the second in the Stephanie Plum series and proved that this entire series will be a good listen! I can’t wait to pick up the third audiobook after this one kept me laughing.
Stephanie, a bounty hunter, is on the trail of Kenny Mancuso who had just shot his best friend. Some best friend, huh? This guy is a real piece of work and keeps Stephanie and cop Joe Morelli reeling through his gam...more
It's hard not to like Stephanie. I imagine if I were a bounty hunter, I'd probably behave the same way she did and make the same mistakes she did. I didn't like this one as much as the first one, but I still really liked it. It was nice seeing...more
Stephanie Plum breaks all the rules and is the least likely bounty hunter of all time. She is down-to-earth and gets herself into hilarious situations as she just plods ahead not really knowing what she is doing.
Do you remember Vicki Lawrence as "Mama" from the Carol Burnett show? In this book Stephanie enlists Grandma Mazur to help her se...more
In realtà potrei tranquillamente fare un copia/incolla della recensione del primo volume senza far alcun torto a nessuno dei due romanzi: si...more
