If you were here Monday, you got 7 books for the money. Today you'll get 3 more. If Monday's book satisfied a hearty reader like an entire delicious Turkey Dinner, (I capitalize nouns that make me happy.) today is Lunch. (I wasn't going to capitalize lunch, but I felt that it was rude on my part to play favorites.)
"One For the Money," "Two For the Dough," and "Three to Get Deadly"
by Janet Evanovich
I didn't see the movie. I don't watch movies after I read the book. (Except Hunger Games) They just can't live up to the amount of information you get in a book.
The first 3 in Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series were deliciously fun. Stephanie used to work in a lingerie department, but upon losing her job, took up a career any clerk would... Bounty Hunting. Yes, she is on a treasure hunt for criminals, because let's face it... she has zero qualifications and that makes everything about skip tracing funny.
My favorite character is Stephanie's grandmother... who once got her dress caught in a casket, after pulling the fire alarm so she could sneak a peak at a woman's corpse to see if a significant mole had survived an explosion at the dry cleaners, which caused this poor woman's demise. Grandma gets into all sorts of funny trouble. Stephanie's mother is amazing at getting her grown daughter to come over for dinner.
I laughed out loud while reading these books. I don't recommend the later volumes in the series as heartily. Eventually the margins become so wide, it's embarrassing they wasted all that paper for so few written words. I still read them, but that's because I'm an optimist and held out hope that I'd get a pleasant surprise. Not yet... but I'll keep you posted.
