One for the Money by Janet Evanovich

One for the Money by Janet Evanovich Book Summary


Watch out, world. Here comes Stephanie Plum, a bounty hunter with attitude. In Stephanie's opinion, toxic waste, rabid drivers, armed schizophrenics, and August heat, humidity, and hydrocarbons are all part of the great adventure of living in Jersey.
She's a product of the "burg," a blue-collar pocket of Trenton where houses are attached and narrow, cars are American, windows are clean, and (God forbid you should be late) dinner is served at six.
Now Stephanie's all grown up and out on her own, living five miles from Mom and Dad's, doing her best to sever the world's longest umbilical cord. Her mother is a meddler, and her grandmother is a few cans short of a case.
Out of work and out of money, with her Miata repossessed and her refrigerator empty, Stephanie blackmails her bail bondsman cousin, Vinnie, into giving her a try as an apprehension agent. Stephanie knows zilch about the job requirements, but she figures her new pal, fearless bounty hunter Ranger, can teach her what it takes to catch a crook.
Her first assignment: nail Joe Morelli, a former vice cop on the run from a charge of murder one. Morelli is also the irresistible macho pig who took Stephanie's virginity at age sixteen and then wrote the details on the bathroom wall of Mario's Sub Shop. There's still powerful chemistry between these two, so the chase should be interesting.
It could also be extremely dangerous, especially when Stephanie encounters a heavyweight title contender who likes to play rough. Benito Ramirez is known for his brutality to women. At the very least, his obsession with Stephanie complicates her manhunt and brings terror and uncertainty into her life. At worst, it could lead to murder.
Witty, fresh, and full of surprises, One for the Money is among the most eagerly awaited crime novels of the season.

Never Give Up. Excellent story. Read her last book first and really liked it. Then decided to read her first book about the Bondsman she became. Great story with ins and outs,mugs and downs tracking people down. Not always an easy or safe job. Sometimes people get shot and die. Read this book and you’ll find out.


Fun areas. Fun book all kinds of plot twists and circle backs


Witty and fun. If you want drama with light-hearted one liners and lots of action and charm then you will enjoy this one!

Was not too crazy about it.... I read this since the movie was coming out but I must admit, I wasn't crazy about it. Slow, predictable... but with some cute humor. Will probably not read this author again.

This book is amazing. I have to say that I can't place my iPad Down the book was good cant wait to read more Stephanie plum adventures of being a bounty hunter. I hope the movie is good too.

One for the Money. An engaging heroine solves a mystery in spite of herself. What could be better? Can't wait for Plum to come to life on the big screen. I haven't had so much fun since Nancy Drew.

Volkswagen-Lover Charlie

Best book. This is the best book I've ever read in m entire life!! :)


Incredible~~~. Woww....this book was truly good!!! Very intriguing and clever! I love the tension between Plum and Morelli. 😊 The foreshadowing used was well crafted. Also, the plot and the conclusion......"Dang!" All the bad boys deserved what they got☺☺☺☺☺☺☺☺


Good Book. I have no time to read and I found that I couldn't put this book down...great read!!!


One for the Money!. Enjoyable read appreciated the humor!


Page turner!!!!. Excellent!!!!!! First time reading here books. Can't wait the read her others.


One for the Money. Toooooo descriptive on most of the book, like the author was just trying to fill sentences. I also found myself looking for grammatical errors because there were so many. Don' think I will read any more of her books. Very predictable and slow.


AWESOME!. That doesn't sound like a book you would read, said my husband. I loved it! My cousin just told me about it, and I read this book in 2 days! I've just finished the 4th in the series and I hope they never stop! True, it DOESN'T sound like a book I would normally read, but I'm so glad I stretched my boundaries! Wish I could find more like this..that were so well written! On to number 5!!!!


One for the Money. Love this it too!!


One for the money. Great book!!


Bambam. Love this book! It keep me wanting more and wanting to read constantly. My attention was held and I couldn't wait to find out what was going to happen next. Can't wait to get the 2 one.


One for the money. Love this book!


One for the money. Ive read the whole series loved them all and i always thought it should be made into a movie i cant wait to see how it turns out on film


One for the money. Very good book. I couldn't put it down, good to the very end.


Wonderful read. A friend recommended this author to me, so I read her first book. I read this in just 3 days. Janet Evanovich clearly has a style to her writing not like anyone else I've read. Being a very serious murder, kidnapping etc story, she manages to throw in some out loud laughing lines that will leave you not only smiling but wanting more. I can't wait to read the rest of her books. Also, if you sign up for updates at Simon and Schuster, you get a free Ebook and have 3 months to use it. Good deal, good read. I recommend this book highly! Enjoy.


Page Turner. Very entertaining read with no slow, boring parts!

Perry the walrus

One for the money. First book in the series I read and definitely not the last :)


Great read!. I really enjoyed this book. Granted, it's not what I would classify as great literature, but it was fast paced and engaging - an entertaining, wild ride. I'm looking forward to reading the next book in the series.


Slow but interesting. Had a hard time getting into the book until the last few chapters and then it got good . Wasn't craZy about the writing style because it was too descriptive and I would rather just get to the point! Still.. I would recommend!


Tq. It is my favorite out of the series.


Very exciting. Great! Haven't read a book like this since Patricia Cornwells' Kay Scarpetta series. Very fun, and action packed. Couldn't put it down and I finished in two days. Now for time for her next book :)


Great Read. Fun, Light Hearted Series

Disgusted bunny etc

One For the Money. The plot was great and very well executed ( pun intended) but it was way to graphic for me. I enjoyed reading the book but I have doubts about reading more of her books.

Kelly ghdjsk

Disappointed. I downloaded this book and there are chapters that will not show up. It is simply saying that there are errors on that page! Do not want to pay another ten dollars again for this book! Please send me a new one! What a shame to get part way through a book, and not get to continue it! Please help!


One for the money by Janet Evanovich. Best book I ever read by a female author. I guess that’s why I own all of the Stephanie Plum books except for number 26 which isn’t out yet. I hope the rest of Janet’s books are just as exciting!!!!!!


Omg!! Great belly laugh…. If you love to laugh then this is the best series to get in to... There are so many times you just end up laugh so hard you could cry!! & Grandma is just as much fun as Stephanie... I have read the series at least 4x's & it never gets old!!! Thank you Janet!! Please please please write more of this series!!!


Best. It's one of the best book series you'll EVER read! Start with one and work your way up. And dont miss the in between books as I call them about Stephanie and Diesel ;)


Great. I loved this book! Easy read and couldn't put it down. Can't wait to read the next one!


One for the Money. This was a great book, just too short. I loved the mystery but best of all the humour!
