Review: One for the Money

One for the Money (Stephanie Plum, No. 1)
Title: One for the Money( Stephanie Plum #1)
Author: Janet Evanovich
Source: Library

I have heard a lot of good things about the Stephanie Plum series, so I thought I would give them a try.  While I liked One for the Money, I didn't like it enough to continue reading the series.  I thought it was a nice and fluffy read, but it was a little too cheesy for my taste.  I thought the author tried too hard to be humorous and the Stephanie Plum wasn't a very well flushed out character.  Halfway through the book she just started to annoy me.  I usually like books like this, but for some reason these really aren't for me.

Rating: 2 stars


  1. Oh it's too bad. I have most of her books and I enjoyed her antics. The most interesting is her continual confusion as to who will be her "boyfriedn" - epic battles between Team Morelli or Team Ranger.

    I do admit Plum does frustrate me at times but it's due to her hesitancy. They are actually making the movie as we speak. Heigl is playing Plum... I wonder how that will work out.

  2. Came over from Cym to say congratulations!
