Read the books separately, but could not find the first one listed. ( )

Very convenient having the first three in one book. This is what got me started and hooked on the Plum series. ( )

Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series (One for the Money through Notorious Nineteen) are light, fun, quick reads that are laugh-out-loud funny. They could never be mistaken for great literature, but if you just want an escape with a lot of laughs they fill the bill nicely. ( )

The Stephanie Plum series was the series that really got me reading. Each book is jam-packed with adventure, love/lust, hysterical mishaps, and fun-loving characters. The love triangle between Plum, Morrelli, and Ranger always keeps you on your toes. Grandma Mazur's antics will have you laughing outloud. Lula comments and opinions will have your jaw dropping, not to mention her way too-tight, wild wardrobe. Expect the unexpected in each adventure with Bounty Hunter "Extraordinaire", Stephanie Plum. The question you will ask yourself each time is, "What car will she be driving in this book?" I am positive you will enjoy this series. These books are difficult to put down, so clear your schedule!!

Easy way to get stuck into the Plum novels. Really enjoyed all three novels, although the concentration of them meant I need to force myself to consciously separate the story-lines in my mind. A nice, simple read, with clever use of humour and crime. ( )

One for the Money
ONE FINE MESS
Welcome to Trenton, New Jersey, home to wiseguys, average Joes, and Stephanie Plum, who sports a big attitude and even bigger money problems (since losing her job as a lingerie buyer for a department store). Stephanie needs cash-fast-but times are tough, and soon she's forced to turn to the last resort of the truly desperate: family...

ONE FALSE MOVE
Stephanie lands a gig at her sleazy cousin Vinnie's bail bonding company. She's got no experience. But that doesn't matter. As does the fact that the bail jumper in question is local vice cop Joe Morelli. From the time he first looked up her dress to the time he first got into her pants, to the time Steph hit him with her father's Buick, M-o-r-e-l-l-i has spelled t-r-o-u-b-l-e. And now the hot guy is in hot water-wanted for murder...

ONE FOR THE MONEY
Abject poverty is a great motivator for learning new skills, but being trained in the school of hard knocks by people like psycho prizefighter Benito Ramirez isn't. Still, if Stephanie can nab Morelli in a week, she'll make a cool ten grand. All she has to do is become an expert bounty hunter overnight-and keep herself from getting killed before she gets her man...
 
 
Two For The Dough
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.
 
 
Three to Get Ready
A "saintly" old candy-store owner is on the lam-and bounty hunter extraordinaire Stephanie Plum is on the case. As the body count rises, Stephanie finds herself dealing with dead drug dealers and slippery fugitives on the chase of her life. And with the help of eccentric friends and family, Steph must see to it that this case doesn't end up being her last...
