Two for the Dough Book Review


””



Title: Two for the Dough
Author: Janet Evanovich
Published: 1996, St. Martin’s Paperbacks
No. of Pages: 325
Cover Price: $7.99 US



Stephanie Plum is back in another irreverent thriller by Janet Evanovich, Two for the Dough. Stephanie is still learning the ins and outs of bounty hunting, and is excited to be searching for Kenny Mancuso, who recently shot his best friend. The payoff is huge, and Stephanie really needs the cash. Of course Cousin Vinny (owner of the bail bond company that she’s working for) assigns this job to Stephanie because he thinks Kenny is an easy pick-up, but it turns out that he’s wrong. Stephanie teams up with Joe Morelli, as well as her bounty hunter mentor, Ranger. Stephanie’s crazy Grandma Mazur plays a large part in the search, and Stephanie and Grandma spend plenty of time at funeral homes. Unfortunately, Stephanie is over her head this time, and the danger is imminent both for her and for Grandma.

Evanovich is a master at building not only suspense, but also her own brand of humor. Two for the Dough has readers laughing at the same time they are on the edge wondering if their heroine is going to survive. In addition, the writing is right on target in the depiction of a lower-class Jersey crowd, and even though the Jersey accents aren’t spelled out in the prose, the writing is such that a reader can hear it in the phrases and words.

Evanovich’s characters are a little crude at times, which could be offensive to some; however, it’s all in fun, and is so in-character for Stephanie Plum, most readers won’t take offense and will laugh throughout the entire novel.

Two for the Dough, as well as the other novels in the Stephanie Plum series, is definitely recommended for anyone who likes humor and the lighter side of suspense.

This book was purchased with personal funds and no promotion of the book was solicited by the author or publisher.
