Two For The Dough

Title: Two For The Dough

Author: Janet Evanovich

Number of pages: 336

Started: 7 November 2012

Finished: 13 November 2012

Opening words:

I knew Ranger was beside me because I could see his earring gleaming in the moonlight. Everything else about him - his T-shirt, his flack vest, his slicked-back hair and 9mm Glock - was as black as the night.  

Plot summary:

Kenny Mancuso shot his childhood buddy Moogey Bues and then jumped bail. Now bounty hunter Stephanie Plum is on the case to track Kenny down.

Then someone finished Moogey off, Kenny can't be found, twenty-four coffins are missing, and there's some ex-army heavy artillery roaming the streets. And Joe Morelli - the cop with more than a professional interest in her every move - is tailing Stephanie.

With a healthy disregard for the law, and an unhealthy dependence on marshmallow hot chocolate, Stephanie's a match for anyone - even Morelli. That is, until her eccentric grandmother goes AWOL and little pieces of corpses start to disappear . . .

What I thought:

This is the second book in the (very extensive) Stephanie Plum series.  It was very readable and had some very funny moments in it.  It wasn’t quite as good as the first book but the Stephanie’s grandma is clearly developing into a character who will make these books an enjoyable light read (although with some slightly harder edged moments).  A good commuter read.
