I might recommend it to a teenaged girl. There are some interesting characters and a cute heroine, but it was so boring I didn't even make it to the end. The criminal names all sounded the same so you couldn't tell who came in and out of the main character's apartment.
No, I'm sure I'll try again sometime.
Stephanie's parents are very funny.
I bought it on sale, so I don't mind.
I bought Virgin River on the same sale and enjoyed it more.
This book kept me reeled in from the beginning. The Stephanie Plum character is charming, funny, and easy to love. I found myself relating to some of her irrational rants! I thought C.J. Critt did a wonderful job narrating! She adds emphasis at just the right moments and her pauses make a great effect. I see that some other critics have said they thought she sounded like an old lady smoker, but I never caught that vibe. I would certainly recommend this audiobook to my friends!
I loved the twists and turns and the sexual tension building between Stephanie and Joe Moreli.
I don't know . I feel it is a silly story that does not make a lot of sense . Stephanie steals the car of a person she is per suing and then puts an car alarm on it ! !
Do more research so the parts of the story fit together
In time I think her books will get better . I was just looking for a inexpensive book to get me to the end of the month to fill in my treadmill time .
I listened to one for the moneyand read the next two in the series this and have to say
yes....I carried the kindle everywhere I went so I could listen at the grocery store,waiting at the bank or in the doctor's office. This book made me laugh out loud at times and teary eyed at others.
It was enjoyable to listen to and required the listener to only use minimum consentration. I like to multitask when listening and it was great to be able to do two things and still be able to follow the story and be able to really get into it. I also was able to pick up the subtle feelings of the lead character even when she was outwordly acting differently. It made for a very easy listen and kept me entertained.
I really do not do light reading usually but read more complex stories. I found this a very easy read (listen) but still very enjoyable. I was sure that I would find it superficial but it had depth of character and kept me wanting to find out more. All in all I can not compare it to anything I have read but it was fun.
Miss Plum of course!
NO but I was eager to finish it and find out the ending.
Great Fun to read (listen)!
Have not read print version
I ended up really enjoying the book & was sorry that it ended even though when I started reading I thought it was very 'corny'. I recommend listeners not to judge it until they get well into the story.
This book kept my attention from begining to end
I was never able to guess what was going to happen next
I did not have a favorite scene. I enjoyed each one equally
wanted to hear book before I saw movie
Stephanie is strangely, crazily credible. Backed into a financial corner, she chooses the least likely way to get out of trouble and gets into heaps. I was so disappointed to find that the rest of the series isn't available yet but I'll be looking out for more of Stephanie's exploits.
I have listened to One for the Money twice now, and would probably listen again. I LOVE the characters, story and reader, making this a win win combo for me.
