created a resourceful and humorous character who stands apart from the pack of gritty female detectives 5 5 starsThis has quickly become a favourite of mine, it was recommended to me by my mum who

expectations were exceeded I am not a person who shows emotion when reading, and I never laugh out loud Ever While I was reading this book, I had numerous people, including my family, ask if I was okay I got strange looks from people on the train and in the coffee shop No matter where it was, I ended up hysterically laughing to myself it wasn t a pretty sight This book follows Stephanie Plum, a girl from the Burg as she becomes a bounty hunter out of pure desperation Her car had been repossessed and she s barely hanging onto her apartment after she lost her job as a Lingerie buyer She blackmails her cousin Vinnie into giving her the job, and Joe Morelli s case.Joe Morelli is a cop who missed his court appearance for murder, but he claims it was in self defence Stephanie has a past with Joe, him being her first and her lateraccidentallymowing him with her father s car The two are ridiculously hilarious, their banter and relationship were the highlight of the book Stephanie is just a typical person, she has no experience in Bounty Hunting and manages to mess up every situation she stumbles across, she s clumsy and loud mouthed and I loved her to death She was completely and utterly normal, the only exceptional thing about her was her humour and ability to attract calamity She was completely and utterly awkward, and I related so hard Truly don t have enough good words to speak about this book, so I m moving straight into the second one.The most fun I ve had reading a book in a long time, I was dying of laughter at work, on the bus and every other place where it s slightly awkward to burst out laughing It s Gender Reversal Day here on Goodreads as I review One for the Money So Samuel Plum is an underwear buyer for a retail store who has recently lost his job Desperate for cash, he blackmails his pervert cousin who runs a bail bonds agency into letting him go after a cop named Jane Morellie who was accused of murder and then skipped There may be a personal revenge motive for Samuel in this because Jane is the girl who seduced him and took his virginity in high school Since she never called It s Gender Reversal Day here on Goodreads as I review One for the Money So Samuel Plum is an underwear buyer for a retail store who has recently lost his job Desperate for cash, he blackmails his pervert cousin who runs a bail bonds agency into letting him go after a cop named Jane Morellie who was accused of murder and then skipped There may be a personal revenge motive for Samuel in this because Jane is the girl who seduced him and took his virginity in high school Since she never called him again, Samuel felt justified in running her over with a car and breaking her leg shortly after that Now Jane is worth 10,000 Even though he has absolutely no experience or training in law enforcement or as a bounty hunter, Samuel decides he s going to capture her He almost immediately stumbles across Jane who basically laughs at him and walks away So Samuel gets a pistol he doesn t know how to use or even load He also allows his senile grandfather to get a hold of the gun because who doesn t love it when the elderly start waving handguns around in a room full of family members Samuel s inexperience quickly gets him intotrouble after he gets assaulted by a female boxer who tries to rape him Rather than pull his gun on the boxer, he panics and hits her with his man purse Things get even worse as Jane repeatedly shows up to humiliate him and then get away again Samuel also gets another person shot when a fugitive takes away his man purse with the gun while Samuel just stands there and allows it to happen Plus, Samuel s failure to report the boxer to the police for the attack on him because he doesn t want to look weak allows two innocent people to be brutally raped and assaulted.Samuel is obviously a moron who has no business running around with a gun and hand cuffs He also seems to be criminally negligent, and he probably should have been in prison already for running over a sex partner He also steals Jane s car when he gets tired of driving his own piece of shit so even though he s supposedly on the side of law and order, he s guilty of carrying a concealed weapon and grand theft auto Samuel is such a nitwit that I have no idea how I m supposed to relate or sympathize with him If this was some kind of comic farce, then I could see how a loser getting humiliated by the fugitives he s supposed to be chasing would be funny, but that kind of goes out the window with the psychotic rapist boxer thing and people getting shot due to Samuel s utter failure as a bounty hunter.In conclusion, I ll say that Samuel Plum is a fucktarded asshat who should be beaten with.Oh, wait Gender Reversal Day was yesterday And it s Stephanie Plum, not Samuel Oh I guess in that case she s just a spunky heroine and her vehicular assault on a former lover, overall gross incompetence and insistence on trying to do a job she has no training or qualifications for is just another example of womanly independence Girl Power Now, Stephanie, if you d just step into this dark alley, there s a few ladies who d like a word with you Oh, don t worry, it s just FBI Special Agent Clarice Starling, US Marshal Karen Sisco, Ree Dolly from the Ozarks and Lisbeth Salander from Sweden They d like to have a little talk regarding what you ve done to the image of female heroes in crime fiction I LOVE THESE BOOKS SERIOUSLY I am obsessed with this series And you know when your brain keeps telling you that this is ridiculous, there must be a hundred books that are written better, or a better mystery, or whatever Well, I don t care This series is my ultimate guilty pleasure I was hooked with the first one and have read the entire series thus far including all the stupid mini books in between Now, those mini books I could do without and they always feel like an attempt to mak I LOVE THESE BOOKS SERIOUSLY I am obsessed with this series And you know when your brain keeps telling you that this is ridiculous, there must be a hundred books that are written better, or a better mystery, or whatever Well, I don t care This series is my ultimate guilty pleasure I was hooked with the first one and have read the entire series thus far including all the stupid mini books in between Now, those mini books I could do without and they always feel like an attempt to make sure they even got the loose change in my pockets, but I still get them anyway because it is like a fix until I can get the real thing So what is so great about them Stephanie hilarious I laugh out loud a rarity for me when reading a book constantly when reading these books I love the murder mysteries which are often at least a step above the formula ones I love the triangle between Ranger and Morelli and Stephanie That is something that often gets old for me in other books or TV shows, etc but for some reason, it just doesn t get old here for me 13 books in and I am still captivated by the tension between the three I love the setting being from CT and living in NY and knowing people from Jersey she nails that dead on I mean, an exaggeration of it but still And the quirky characters I love that I like books that the people are really odd and funny But it still has to be believable I hate odd just for the sake of odd like, hey look at me I m wacky wocka wocka But these characters are so outrageous and I still find myself being able to believe it and go along with the book Do things get repetitive Sure, I mean, she blows up a car in every single book But for me, that makes it all thefunny I can t help it, I laugh every single time I love how she is so clumsy and crazy and manages to get things done in spite of herself I love how she is always battling her weight that constant struggle between carrots and carrot cake I love her family, the situations she gets in, her friends, her grandmother Really, did I mention I love these books I can t explain it, but I am compulsive about buying the next one as soon as it comes out in paperback and I have kept the entire set and read it through again a few times I feel that the story just gets better and better as you know the charactersand she doesn t have to spend time introducing them, she can just get on to the chaos I tried to talk my mom into reading these books and she just couldn t get past the introduction to Morelli which IS pretty odd basically two kids experimenting I just ignore it and skipped beyond it and was able to enjoy the rest of it and all I think she was a little too uptight sorry mom to enjoy the whole feel of the series If I had to sum up the series, I think it would have to be Funny, fast and loose Pure gold in humor 4 unforgettable
