Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Sassy, brassy Stephanie Plum, the bounty hunter from Trenton, N.J., introduced to acclaim in last year's One for the Money, returns to track a bond jumper through her blue-collar neighborhood known as the "burg." A local funeral home, a slimy undertaker and mutilated corpses figure large in the search for Kenny Mancuso, who, having shot an old high-school friend in the knee, posted bail with Stephanie's boss, her cousin, and then disappeared. When the old friend is shot again, fatally, Stephanie reluctantly joins forces with her sexy enemy and love interest, Trenton homicide cop Joe Morelli. While looking for Kenny, Stephanie also searches for 24 caskets stolen from Spiro Stiva, heir apparent of Stiva's Mortuary and also a high-school buddy of Kenny's. As body parts, cut from "clients" on view at Stiva's, are used to warn people off the case, Stephanie and Morelli spar in a lively if expected fashion and Stephanie's feisty gun-toting Grandma Mazur forsakes her usual routine of talk-show TV and attending wakes to join the fight against crime. Readers will likely stay a few steps ahead of the sleuths, but the sharp repartee and Stephanie's slightly cynical but still fond relationship with her family and the burg hold a treasury of urban-style charms. $100,000 ad/promo; Mystery Guild selection; Literary Guild alternate selection; author tour.

From Library Journal

Evanovich's first novel, One for the Money (Macmillan, 1994), introduced Stephanie Plum, a gutsy heroine who wormed her way into a job with her bond-agent cousin Vinnie. With the aid of vice cop Joe and her Grandma Mazur, Stephanie pursues a bail jumper and knows that a vice cop wants them both. A winning adventure.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read May 10 2012
By Alyssa
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I originally read the first book in the Stephanie Plum series because it was a Christmas gift and love the book so much I needed to get this, the second of the series. This book was so good, a definite page turner and when I was finished it left me feeling like I couldn't start the third fast enough. Janet Evanovich is a writer who grabs your attention immediately and before you know it you on the last page wishing for more!

5.0 out of 5 stars Plum redeemed June 16 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
After being so disappointed with the first book of the Stephanie Plum series, I thought it unlikely that I'd try a second book. I'm glad I did. The first book was just irritating, but Ms. Plum is redeemed by the second.
The plot moooooves. It's funny in the right places. The jeopardy is always present, always real. We know, of course, that somehow Plum will get Mancuso, bad as he is, but no matter. That is a flaw of all series crime novels: the reader knows the hero will prevail. Otherwise, there wouldn't be a next book.
But the plot isn't what fascinated me here. It was the atmosphere. It was the cast of characters. Trenton, NJ is not exactly a tourist Mecca, and the author doesn't try to burnish the city's reputation. It's cold. It's dirty. It's dangerous. A good portion of the book takes place in sundry funeral parlors, not exactly places we like to visit in the best of cities. But the author makes it real--I almost wrote "come alive," but that would be tacky. As for characters, they are all good, from Plum to her grandmother. While the reader probably wouldn't care to socialize with most of those who populate this tale, it is undeniable that they are realistic. Characters and atmosphere: they are what make or break any work of fiction, and they certainly make this an enjoyable turn.
I look forward to catching up with book three, if only to follow the further saga of Plum's Grandma.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wise, witty, and oh-so New Joisey! June 7 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Everyone loves Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum mysteries, but for one like me who's lived in New Joisey, both north and south, and actually WORKED in Trenton (no kidding, there are a few jobs), these books have me collapsing in hysterical laughter. New Jersey really is like this, with all the endearing and irritating ethnic barbie-babbitry and hypocrisy Evanovich so beautifully evokes. (I note she lives out of state these days. So do I.)
If I had to rate the series, I'd choose this one as best or perhaps second-best, so far, although all are superb. Lula and Grandma Mazur, two of Evanovich's best characters, really come alive in this one. Stephanie is still Everywoman in La-La Land while Joe sizzles, Ranger looms dangerously, Stephanie's father and mother remain completely and hilariously in character, Spiro is nicely smarmy, and Mancuso is a REALLY BAD GUY. Highly recommended!
Stephanie reminds me of another bewildered and exploited tracer of lost persons who also possesses a wisecracking mouth, a convoluted love life, and an eccentric and hilarious family, who makes dead-on observations and is so much "at home" in the 'hood that the narrative gives us a complete sense of belonging -- namely, Marcus Didius Falco in Lindsey Davis's fabulous Roman series. And folks, that's high praise.

4.0 out of 5 stars Even more funny than One.... April 26 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
If you thought that Janet Evanovich's One for the Money was hysterical, Two for the Dough will have you in stitches! We get to learn a bit more about bounty hunter, Stephanie Plum. In trying to capture Kenny Mancuso while trying to track down a truckload of stolen caskets, Stephanie stumbles onto something much more serious and even life threatening. Many scenes take place in a funeral home in Trenton, and the antics of Grandma Mazur will have you wetting your pants. No corpse is safe when she's around!
Many of the regular characters become more fleshed out including Vinnie, Connie, Ranger, and especially heartthrob cop Joe Morelli. The best character in the bunch is Lula-a prostitute introduced in book one who now wants to join Stephanie as a bounty hunter. Think 200+ pound African American in spandex miniskirts. The two of them working together is a blast. Stephanie is also becoming a little more savvy in her job and now sports a stun-gun. But she still has much to learn, which makes the story funny and maybe a little more realistic (no James Bond-types to be found here).
I read the book first, and then listened to the audio version. One thing that is really annoying with many audio books (this one included) is that so many of the readers mispronounce so many words-especially names of places. Also, this book was only made available in the abridged version. But even so, Evanovich will have you coming back for more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Response to Literature April 19 2004
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Stephanie Plum is on the move again in Two for the Dough by Janet Evanovich. When she finds out she has to bring on a dangerous criminal who as just killed his best friend after shooting him in the knee with a powerful gun. When Stephanie found out who she was dealing with she new she would have to contact Morelli because Morelli was related to Kenny, the murderer. Kenny was well known for his illegal actions. This was another way fro Stephanie to make money for bringing Kenny in.
When Stephanie is on the case she meets Kenny's girlfriend named Julia who is denying his man slaughter. Julia is telling Kenny about Stephanie looking for him and how she is going to take him to jail. The part that confused me the most is when the truck had been robbed and Stephanie and Morelli where changing names left and right. I couldn't understand who they were talking about. They were saying that Kenny had killed so many different people that I didn't know who Kenny really murdered." There were two homicide detectives o the scene" (Evanovich 15). I could not tell if the detectives had killed the victim or if it was Moogey. What Stephanie did not know was that Morelli was related to Kenney until she went with Joe to the Morelli house hold when Joe found out that Leo, Joe's cousin's car was stolen by Kenney.
Leo and Kenney were close cousins who were there for one another. Well now Leo can not stand Kenney after he stole his car and now Leo might have to show up in court for the two victims that were killed. And now Joe and Stephanie have to make sure that they find Kenney and they have to find Kenney before Leo does. If Leo finds Kenney before Joe and Stephanie does then Kenney could be in some serious trouble.
