Format: Paperback
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.

The second novel in the Stephanie Plum series sees the bounty hunter in her second case - trying to catch an elusive bail skipper. The story feels instantly forgettable (I can't recall what happened in the first book either), and seemed to be missing an opening chapter that would have reintroduced the characters and set up the plot.

The story took a while to get going and a long time for me to get into it. The chapters seemed too long and were, particularly at the beginning of the book, very repetitive, which didn't help grip me. The plot really felt that it wasn't going anywhere, and at the end I was left feeling cheated out of anything much happening, and that the characters hadn't been on any sort of journey.

The main character is quite annoying, and the rest of the cast are equally frustrating to read about. The comedic elements felt very forced and slapstick and the male characters are entirely one-dimensional.

Looking back, I enjoyed the first book in the series, and commented on how well-constructed the characters and plot were. This sequel then was a terrible disappointment. I hope it's just a blip and that the remainder of the series will turn out stronger when I read them.

By J. Cronin VINE VOICE on 24 Sept. 2003
Format: Paperback
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.

By Donald Mitchell HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 20 May 2004
Format: Paperback
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.
