    Bounty hunter Stephanie Plum is back, packing a whole lot of attitude. This time around, she's on the trail of Kenny Mancuso, a boy from the working-class burg of Trenton, New Jersey, who has just shot his best friend. Fresh out of the Army and suspiciously wealthy, Mancuso's also distantly related to Joe Morelli, a vice cop with questionable ethics, a libido in permanent overdrive, and a habit of horning in on Stephanie's investigations.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Two for the Dough the most enjoyable?

    Content, Content, Content - Consistent Janet Evanovich! Witty and funny plus adventure. Stephanie is a "pitt-bull..." according to Joe Morelli, "when it comes to cases", and she doggedly (see what I did there?) pursues her cases while fending of Morelli - great fun and great story too! This time Stephanie is knee deep in 'burg bad boys and caskets!


    What did you like best about this story?

    Stephanie and Joe - hot, hot, hot.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    I am not sure why they picked this narrator - she sounds like a 60 year old woman who has been smoking and drinking for 40 years, raspy and aged. Stephanie is supposed to be 30 years old (from One for the Money) so why voice her with a whisky/cigarette voiced older woman? The narator also has a timing issue, every. word. comes. out. as if. it. is. a. complete. sentence. And you can hear every intake of breath - distracting to say the least. That being said - her New Jersified "burg" accent is spot-on and I find her totally believable when she is discussing Stephanie's neighborhood and lifestyle, it is just her perceived age that gets me - I flip back and forth between a sexy 30 yr old that Ranger and Joe Morelli are drooling over and the 60 yr old that she sounds like... Hopefully the later books are voiced by a younger sounding woman.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No - but that is not really my style, audible books are for sitting in the daily commute, so they usually take me a few weeks of 3040 mins at a time.
