Book Review #318 - Two for the Dough (Stephanie Plum #2) by Janet Evanovich

Two for the Dough (Stephanie Plum, #2)

This one's double the fun!

Bounty hunter Stephanie Pum 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 weatlhy, 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 Grandma 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.
My Rating: 4/5
This book was equally as good as the first one One for the Money.
Grandma Mazur is by far my favourite character, she brings humour everytime she is involved. Stephanie's entire family are really dysfunctional and so her family dynamics are hilarious.
I found the plot a little hard to follow at times, but overall I found it really enthralling, although a little bit more slowly paced than the first book.
Stephanie's relationship with Morelli is very interesting, and I am intrigued to see how that goes in the rest of the series.
