Synopsis

Watch out, world. Here comes Stephanie Plum, a bounty hunter with attitude in the bestselling debut mystery that earned Janet Evanovich nominations for the Edgar, Anthony, Agatha, Shamus, and Macavity awards. She's a product of the "burg," a blue-collar pocket of Trenton where houses are attached and narrow, cars are American, windows are clean, and (God forbid you should be late) dinner is served at six.In Stephanie's opinion, toxic waste, rabid drivers, armed schizophrenics, and August heat, humidity, and hydrocarbons are all part of the great adventure of living in Jersey. Out of work and out of money, with her Miata repossessed and her refrigerator empty, Stephanie blackmails her bail bondsman cousin into giving her a try as an apprehension agent. Stephanie knows zilch about the job requirements, but she figures she can learn what it takes to catch a crook. Her first assignment: nail a former vice cop on the run from a charge of murder one -- who also happens to be the irresistible macho pig who took Stephanie's virginity at age sixteen. There's still powerful chemistry between these two, so the chase could be as interesting as it is dangerous.Witty, fresh, and full of surprises, One for the Money is a dazzling introduction to a sleuth you'll be hearing from again.

About the Author

Janet Evanovich was born Janet Schneider on April 22, 1943 in South River, New Jersey. She routinely appears on both the New York Times and Amazon Bestseller Lists and has a devoted following of readers. Using the pen name Steffie Hall, she published her several short romance novels. She later struck gold with her popular ‘Stephanie Plum’ Series – the twenty second book in the series, (‘Tricky Twenty Two’) will be released this November. After the third book in the series, Evanovich started running contests for her readers to suggest names for the next book. Each Plum book since that time has been named by a fan. The heroine, Stephanie Plum becomes a bounty hunter in her hometown of Trenton, New Jersey by bribing her pervert cousin Vinnie for a job after she is laid off as a lingerie buyer. Although there is plenty of romance and comedy in the books, they are primarily modern mysteries with an outrageous cast of secondary characters that add down to earth humor.

Evanovich became the first in her family to attend college. After graduating from South River High School she went on to attend Douglass College, part of Rutgers University. Janet Evanovich married her husband Pete in 1964. When she had her son, Peter and daughter, Alexandra, she decided to become a stay at home mom to raise her children. She first began writing in her thirties and had trouble publishing her first three manuscripts. Someone suggested she try writing romance novels. She had written two romance novels and still had not found anyone to publish them and became discouraged. She stopped writing and instead signed on with a temporary employment agency. After she worked there for several months, she received an offer to publish her second romance manuscript. She wrote and published multiple short romance novels before creating the world of Stephanie Plum. She has also written several other series, including the ‘Wicked’ Series, the ‘Alex Barnaby’ series, and the newer ‘Fox and O’Hare series featuring an FBI Agent and her partner, a notorious thief on the FBI’s Most Wanted List.

This was a great start to the series. I usually don't like reading in first person, but it wasn't annoying in this book. It actually works better because Stephanie Plum is so funny. She is a normal woman that worries about her weight like we all do but likes to eat! She is single and lives in an apartment with her hamster. It is a very funny and fast read. I love her grandmother! Her grandmonther is so funny. I read these books when I am in between books.

This is a great series and this first in the series is one of the best! If you like a book that is a page turner and also keeps you laughing, this is the one!

This was the first time I have ever read a Stephanie Plum novel and I really enjoyed it. I enjoyed this book with a big cup of coffee. I cant wait for my next Stephanie Plum novel to come in the mail. A Stephanie Plum movie would be awesome.

AudiobooksNow review by Tanisha on 2008-08-05 16:09:09

After many pressures from friends I finally pick up this series and I must say I'm glad I did. Stephanie was an enjoyable charcter who I could relate to. Her family is funny as all get out Stephanie takes on being a bounty hunter when she loses her job and the first person she goes after is Morelli. Trentons own playboy who suckered Stephanie into giving herself to him in the back of the bakery shop when they were younger. Clearly Stephanie has some unresolved issues with Morelli and the bounty on his head has made him even more desirable. Stephanie finds how desirable Morelli is to her a the funniest unravel in One for the Money. This book had me LOL all the way through. I can't wait to read ther others to find out what happens with Stephanie/ Morelli.
