Enjoyable characters, enjoyable storyline. I especially like Grandma Mazur ... I can see Sophia from Golden Girls in that part. I really enjoy the fact that Stephanie Plum is a great anti-hero. She just stumbles through it all like real people do. ( )

I was still kind of on the fence about these books but they're starting to grow on me. And I'm loving the back and forth between Stephanie and Joe, it's really entertaining ( )

Evanovich is on a roll and her sequel to One for the Money, is Two for the Dough (guess what the third in the series is titled). It continues Stephanie’s career as a bounty hunter and is again populated with the same great characters. Joe Morelli, now back on the police force, is the old friend who keeps an eye on her, is probably in love with her, and can’t wait to check out her lingerie (the scene where she leaves him stranded in the middle of the street with no shorts on, then returns to give him back his .45 is a classic). Grandma Mazur is as loony as ever, still patrolling the viewings of funerals to compare handiwork of the funeral directors, (at one such — closed casket — she “accidentally” catches her sleeve on the handle and flings open the top so she can see how the funeral home handled the bullet holes). The bounty this time is Kenny Mansuro, Morelli’s cousin, who has stolen some special weaponry from the army, hidden in some caskets, then is double- crossed by one of his partners. In retaliation for the attention brings to himself, he begins sending body parts to Stephanie. You’ll never guess the part sent to her that she opens at home just before dinner. Grandma was most appreciative and really curious to see how the funeral parlor would handle this one. ( )

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

Then someone finishes 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...

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0312948964, Mass Market Paperback)

Bounty hunter Stephanie Plum is still learning the ropes at her cousin Vinnie's bail bond office, so when she sets out on the trail of Kenny Mancuso--a suspiciously wealthy, working class Trenton boy who has just shot his best friend--the stakes are higher than ever. That Mancuso is distantly related to vice cop Joe Morelli--who is trying to beat Stephanie to the punch--only makes the hunt more thrilling….
Taking pointers from her bounty hunter pal, Ranger, and using her pistol-packing Granda Mazur as a decoy, Stephanie is soon closing in on her mark. But Morelli and his libido are worthy foes. And a more sinister kind of enemy has made his first move…and his next move might be Stephanie's last.
