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. ( )

This review is of the audiobooks from the set 'Three Plums in One,' which, apparently, is abridged from the written books.

These are the first three installments in the Stephanie Plum series, about a woman who stumbles into the bounty hunter business and has a series of adventures revolving around her lack of skill or at least naivete in the business, her luck, her tenacity, and the hot cop for whom she has this long-standing thing. Plum is refreshing and amusing in audiobook form. The books are full of entertaining situations involving a succession of destroyed cars, bumbled take-downs, and the Jersey-girl style that oozes from the pages. I adore the fact the heroine owns a hamster. The non-audio versions might be more cliche and annoying, or perhaps other reviews are reacting more to ongoing themes - which I could see becoming old if they continue too much in later books - but these first three installments are good, fairly clean, fun with a lot of charm.

One for the Money
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...

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...

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...
