I kind of enjoyed the first one, though I thought the authors were channeling Stephanie Plum and that Big Fat Greek Wedding movie a bit too much.  It just seemed kind of derivative.

I've really never found anything that compares to the early Stephanie Plum books.  However, you might try the Spellman series by Lisa Lutz.  The first in the series is The Spellman FilesBobbie Faye's Very Bad Day by Toni McGee Causey may also interest you.  There are a couple more of these in the series and they have also been re-released under different names.  One of my favorite series is the Sarah Booth Delaney series by Carolyn Haines.  Different from Stephanie Plum but still very entertaining.

Another is the "Bubbles" series written by Sarah Strohmeyer, which was so much like Stephanie Plum in the first 50 pages of the first book that I stopped reading it...I quit reding the Plum series after book 7 for many reasons, although the first few were brilliant...and there are, I thnk, a lot of wannabees out there.
