Book Description

28 Nov 1996 Stephanie Plum 02

Kenny Mancuso shot his childhood buddy Moogey Bues and then jumped bail. Now bounty hunter Stephanie Plum is on the case to track Kenny down.

Then someone finished Moogey off, Kenny can't be found, twenty-four coffins are missing, and there's some ex-army heavy artillery roaming the streets. And Joe Morelli - the cop with more than a professional interest in her every move - is tailing Stephanie.

With a healthy disregard for the law, and an unhealthy dependence on marshmallow hot chocolate, Stephanie's a match for anyone - even Morelli. That is, until her eccentric grandmother goes AWOL and little pieces of corpses start to disappear . . .

4.0 out of 5 stars Stephanie's Back in Over Her Head 22 Dec 2002
By Mark Baker TOP 500 REVIEWER
Stephanie's new case was supposed to be simple. Kenny Mancuso had shot his friend, not fatally, and then skipped out on his bond. Should be real simple, right? Of course, first she has to find Kenny. Then his friend is murdered. Trying to track down any leads, she joins Grandma Mazur at a funeral home run by Spiro, another of Kenny's childhood friends. But Spiro has a case of his own. 24 caskets have been stolen, and he wants Stephanie to hunt them down. Is there a connection? With Ranger to advise and Joe Morelli to shadow, will Stephanie put all the pieces in place and catch Kenny before he turns on her?
Stephanie Plum is an appealing heroine. She acts tough, but in reality she's all too human. The plot is complicated enough to keep the reader engaged, and the action never lets up. There were several parts I thought I had figured out only to learn later I was wrong. And Grandma Mazur is a riot as she gets more involved in the story.
It's easy to see why these books are so popular - an appealing main character and fun stories. If you're looking for purely escapist fiction, this is the series for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Getting Plummier 24 Sep 2003
Stephanie Plum is back in her second outing as a bounty hunter. She's getting better, and now she's been assigned the case of finding Kenny Mancuso, who skipped bail after shotting his old friend in the knee. Turns out though that Kenny's cousin is her old flame and cop Joe Morelli, who also has an interest in this case, as well as in Stephanie.
Stephanie is also hired by local undertaker Spiro to track down 24 stolen army surplus caskets, and coincidentally, Spiro was also a friend of Kenny. As the plot thickens, Stephanie realises that Kenny is a psycho, and that there is a lot more going on here than meets the eye. And, as if enough isn't going on, she has to deal with an energetic Granny Mazur, and a very interested Morelli.
Stephanie Plum is an independant woman, fighting bad hair as well as the criminal underworld and her attraction to Morelli. She will make you laugh, as will her gun-toting, funeral-attending grandmother. These books just keep getting better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stephanie collects body parts 2 Dec 2003
Author Janet Evanovich has made the protagonist of her Stephanie Plum series one of the most endearing fictional characters I've come across. Should Hollywood make any of the books into a film, the lead role is made for Sandra Bullock.
In TWO FOR THE DOUGH, novice bounty hunter Stephanie is on the hunt for Kenny Mancuso, who's jumped bail after being charged with shooting a service station attendant in the knee. As the plot unfolds, Plum becomes involved in the investigation of a weapons theft from an Army arsenal, and is mailed various body parts carved from corpses on slabs at a local mortuary. All to the continuing discomfiture of her family, who just wants her to find a nice man and get married. Or at least a job that pays steady.
Admittedly, the plots of the Plum novels are rudimentary. Almost amateurish even. But they serve as the skeleton structures upon which Evanovich constructs the superbly hilarious misadventures of her klutzy heroine. Not since Sophie Kinsella's Shopaholic series with Becky Bloomwood have I been so amused.
A major attraction of the series is the cast of ongoing, supporting characters. Foremost is Joe Morelli, a plain-clothes cop on the Trenton (NJ) PD, and Plum's reluctant ally in her pursuit of the bad guys. Joe and Stephanie would be lovers except that she finds him so infuriating, and the fact that she manages to trash Joe's cars. Another is her maternal grandmother, Grandma Mazur, a feisty old lady who see's herself as Clint Eastwood and her granddaughter's sometimes partner. In that hypothetical film of Stephanie's exploits, Mazur would be played by Dorothy's Mom in TV's GOLDEN GIRLS, Sophia.

4.0 out of 5 stars Looking forward to Three, Four and Five! 14 Dec 1999
By A Customer
I've just finished this book, and came to to see if Janet had written any more in this series. I'm delighted! Three more to go! I carried this and the "One for" books around with me wherever I went, I just couldn't put them down. They had me laughing out loud and fantasing about the enigmatic Morelli (do I need to get out more?). Not great literature, but a damned entertaining read, with some hilarious characters. I'm buying the others in the series to take on holiday with me next week.

5.0 out of 5 stars Morelli Makes His Move 20 May 2004
In One for the Money, Stephanie Plum becomes a bounty hunter charged with bringing in Joe Morelli, a cop who is charged with killing an unarmed man. The two had a history, from Joe teaching her choo-choo between her legs when she was six, later on the bakery floor when she was sixteen, and finally when she broke his leg by running over him when he didn't call again and told the whole town about their exploits.
In Two for the Dough (the second book in the series), Stephanie is after Kenny Mancuso, a relative of Morelli's and Morelli is everywhere. Before the book is over, he makes his move. And the results will keep you laughing for days!
In addition to the wacky romance, naturally there's a mystery, lots of bad guys, and great action. Stephanie is still good at finding the missing felon, but like in One for the Money, she can't seem to apprehend him. She's better armed this time, but it doesn't help her with Mancuso.
Her Grandmother Mazur becomes her sidekick, because the search for Mancuso turns out to be connected to mortuaries as 24 caskets turn up missing. Grandmother Mazur hasn't missed a viewing in years, so this is right up her alley. Somehow, these wandering caskets are also connected to Mancuso's shooting of his best friend, and missing munitions from an Army base where Mancuso was stationed. The missing munitions are being used to kill cops all over New Jersey.
Janet Evanovich is able to draw humor from the most unlikely places, such as animal droppings and death. This book has more mortuary humor in it than all other books combined that I have read in my life.
You'll find out what the stylish Jersey girl turned bounty hunter was wearing in 1996, and the best ways to track down a missing felon. In the meantime, you'll have more laughs than in most comedies.
