One for the Money

one for the moneyI woke up in the middle of the night yesterday, and my mother and I couldn’t sleep for hours. Then she fell asleep and I continued reading Two for the Dough by Janet Evanovich. Since I didn’t finish it yet, it would be wrong to talk about it. 

For those who haven’t heard of it, this series is about a bounty hunter named Stephanie Plum, who starts the job in the first book, One for the Money, because she’s broke, jobless and divorced. She lives in this New Jersey neighborhood, where I imagine is only a tad better than wherever Earl (from My Name is Earl) lives in. She’s actually quite funny, and I remember laughing out loud a couple of times. It’s a through and through crime book, with almost no romance. But it’s quite good, though I’d prefer  a bit more romance, but the comedy covers up for it. It’s also quite smart. 

It also has a huge fan base and is going to be a movie (or was going to be one years ago). It would be quite cool to watch it, though there’s no way it can be as funny. Give it a try.
