This is a very intriguing story about the intersection of paleontology with time travel and how the study of dinosaurs by scientists might be done. Of course the characters can't leave their own emotions behind, so it gets very messy. Good read.

This is the first in the popular Stephanie Plum series. Stephanie is a ditzy, lovable young woman without many marketable skills who decides to become a bounty hunter in Trenton, NJ.

"One For The Money" will leave you laughing and looking forward to the next in this series by Janet Evanovich.
