One For The Money  - Janet Evanovich Stephanie Plumb has no job, hasn't paid the rent for a while and has pawned most of her stuff and her car's been re-possessed. The answer to her problems? Cousin Vinnie, who runs a bail bondsmans.

So Stephanie becomes a bounty hunter - her first job is to hunt down the bane of her teenage life Joe Morelli (last time she saw him she ran him over - on purpose).

Joe's a cop, charged with Murder and Stephanie just can't stop running into him (not literally this time). Throw into the mix a very mean boxer, shootings, beatings, explosions - the action doesn't really stop.

I must admit I did find the story a little hard to follow, but it certainly wasn't dull - so why only 3 stars? I just don't know. There were a lot of characters to keep track of and in such a short story I found that hard to deal with. The blend of comedy and violence was well handled though. There's certainly a lot of chemistry between Stephanie and Ranger, as well as Stephanie and Joe and I'm interested to see which way she jumps. I did like the way Joe ended up caring for her, trying to protect her.

There wasn't enough Ranger and the ending was rather abrupt.

I was slightly confused by Grandma Mazur (is she slightly crazy?), but maybe the next book will clear that up.
