Publisher's Summary

You’ve lost your job as a department store lingerie buyer, your car’s been repossessed, and most of your furniture and small appliances have been sold off to pay last month’s rent. Now the rent is due again. And you live in New Jersey. What do you do?

If you’re Stephanie Plum, you become a bounty hunter. But not just a nickel-and-dime bounty hunter; you go after the big money. That means a cop gone bad. And not just any cop. She goes after Joe Morelli, a disgraced former vice cop who is also the man who took Stephanie’s virginity at age 16 and then wrote details on a bathroom wall. With pride and rent money on the line, Plum plunges headlong into her first case, one that pits her against ruthless adversaries - people who’d rather kill than lose.

The New York Times Book Review calls Stephanie Plum “a Jersey girl with Bette Middler’s mouth and Cher’s fashion sense.” In Stephanie Plum, Evanovich has created a resourceful and humorous character who stands apart from the pack of gritty female detectives.

    Story
    "Grabbed me from chapter one"
    What did you love best about One for the Money?

    I loved the ordinary girl thrust into extraordinary circumstances. And Critt's narration was superb.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of One for the Money?

    When the lead character was cornered in the gym was a memorable moment for its tension.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    So many great scenes it's difficult to be selective.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    It was not so much a moving novel. More a wonderful mix of tension and hilarity.

    "Good Listen"
    What was one of the most memorable moments of One for the Money?

    The dinner scene when grandma shoots off the gun.


    Have you listened to any of C. J. Critt’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is my first time listening to on of CJ Critt's performances. Would definitely choose another book with her as the reader.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I'm sure I looked a little odd to passers-by when I was in my car alone laughing hysterically.


    Any additional comments?

    The story was funny and the reader kept me wanting to hear more about the day-to-day experiences of Stephanie Plum. It was like listening to an old friend tell you about her day.

    "Funny!!"
    Would you try another book from Janet Evanovich and/or C. J. Critt?

    Absolutely would love to read another book by Janet Evanovich. The character is so flawed and realistic. It was fun to read about the way people live in the east.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Well the heroine of course. Absolutely hysterical.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Probably would not be nearly as funny as a movie and it would be capitalized on for the sexual components - whereas in the book - they are a sprinkle of spice!

    "FANTASTIC NARRATION!!"

    It was wonderful listening to the different characters -- they were all unique with just enough of a New Jersey accent to make them come alive, but not too much to be annoying. I've read the books & saw the movie, but I really enjoyed listening and can't wait to get the rest of the series.

    I've never heard the narrator before but I thought her 'voice' for the characters was outstanding.

    "Not as good as Sue Grafton"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The story is ok but a little unbelieveable.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Janet Evanovich? Why or why not?

    Probably because I have heard good reviews about her and this was just the first book.


    What three words best describe C. J. Critt’s voice?

    clear, funny in a good way,


    Did One for the Money inspire you to do anything?
