This is one of the best in the Stephanie Plum series. (I've only read through 5 so far, though!) If you want a mystery that is laugh-out-loud funny, this series delivers. My husband asked to read them after hearing me laugh so often. Now HE'S hooked! (And that's saying a lot!)

I'm very happy that it took me so long to find Stephanie Plum. Now I can zoom through the next ten or so books since they've already been published! This one has the brash, rash Trenton, NJ bounty hunter tangling with undertakers and arms dealers with the help of Grandma Mazur and sexy Joe Morelli.

I love Stephanie! I think Lula, thr "Ho" turned file clerk who always wants to put a cap up someone's ass, is hilarious. I love the fact that you can almost taste the New Jersey smog. I love the daft granny! Sometimes books you can read in a day - just for a laugh are worth as much as pulitzer winners.

The 2nd in the Stephanie Plum series, it just gets better. Evanovich writes rich, full characters that grab you by the collar and jerk you into the story. Be ready to laugh out loud when Stephanie's Grandma Mazur decides to "help out" with her current case.
Hanging out with Stephanie in Trenton is like driving around my own city. I can almost see the old guys hanging around in front of the stores, and the kids on the streetcorners. The descriptions are top notch and you really feel like you are riding shotgun with the sassiest bounty hunter around.

Another good one by Evanovich. I enjoy how she keeps you on your toes and the sexual tension between Stephanie Plum and Joe Morelli. I also like how she intertwines the books yet you can still read them stand alone if you like.

Janet Evanovich always manages to have fun while spinning a plot full of twists and turns, with just the right amount of sexual tension. Having read some of the more recent Stephanie Plum books, it's interesting to see how she was more tentative and insecure in the early episodes, contrasted with the confidence of the newer ones. Character development is especially good. The men in the book aren't strictly good guys or bad guys-- they're just guys that struggle with decisions, and sometimes make bad choices. I highly recommend this book to any mystery lover, and especially to fans of Janet's work.

"You have a knack for running into people you're looking for, though completely inept at taking them down."

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!

Plum has a new case, Kenny Mancuso, who seems to have lost his marbles! Never on police radar before, Mancuso is now hacking off fingers, feet and Johnsons!

Stephanie is still learning the whole apprehension agent gig, so she's not going to be perfect at it immediately, right? Right! So, of course she's going to make some " oopses ". She's got a huge, blue Buick (very visible, not that great on stake outs), still pretty terrible with her .38 S&W, and now has this weird twitch in her eye!

Not only that, Stephanie's also got Morelli muscling his way in on supper! Her mother is fussing over her all the time and her dad has his nose buried in a paper to escape it all.

This book is hilarious! The dialog, the witty antics and especially the laugh out loud humor her Grandma Mazur offers to the plot, makes Two for the Dough, hysterical, thrilling, and suspenseful! Two for the Dough NEEDS to be on your bookshelves!
