Stephanie Plum is so smart, so honest, and so funny that her narrative charm could drive a documentary on termites. But this tough gal from New Jersey, an unemployed discount lingerie buyer, has a much more interesting story to tell: She has to say that her Miata has been repossessed and that she’s so poor at the moment that she just drank her last bottle of beer for breakfast. She has to say that her only chance out of her present rut is her repugnant cousin Vinnie and his bail-bond business. She has to say that she blackmailed Vinnie into giving her a bail-bond recovery job worth $10,000 (for a murder suspect), even though she doesn’t own a gun and has never apprehended a person in her life. And she has to say that the guy she has to get, Joe Morelli, is the same creep who charmed away her teenage virginity behind the pastry case in the Trenton bakery where she worked after school.Source: Amazon.com
Stephanie Plum is a fun character. I enjoyed her adventure to becoming a reputable bounty hunter, and boy does she get herself into some interesting situations. Good thing she has friends to help her out. I also enjoyed Joe Morelli, especially because you couldn’t tell whether you could trust him or not from the start, but he always had a sort of tenderness about him the entire time. I’m hoping he remains a figure in the books to come.
My hope for the future – that Stephanie gets increasingly better at this job. I love girls who can kick some but, so I have some high hopes for Stephanie.
