Two for the Dough | [Janet Evanovich]

Two for the Dough

Stephanie Plum once again takes to the mean streets of Trenton, NJ, armed with attitude (not to mention stun guns, defense sprays, killer flashlights, and her untrustworthy .38) to find Kenny Mancuso, who recently left the army, inadvertently shot his best friend, and is on the run in violation of a bond.

Publisher's Summary

Stephanie Plum once again takes to the mean streets of Trenton, NJ, armed with attitude (not to mention stun guns, defense sprays, killer flashlights, and her untrustworthy .38) to find Kenny Mancuso, who recently left the army, inadvertently shot his best friend, and is on the run in violation of a bond. Aided by her tough bounty hunter couch and her irrepressible Grandma Mazur, Stephanie once again forms a rocky alliance with fast talking, slow-handed vice cop Joe Morelli for the tumultuous chase through back alleys and Grandma's favorite funeral parlors.

Witty, fresh, and full of suprises, Two for the Dough is the Stephanie Plum sequel fans have been waiting for.

Don't forget to download the rest of the Stephanie Plum series.

    "Fun Fun Fun"

    I Love Janet Evanovich. I never read this type of ?lighthearted fiction? until I was stuck on a long flight and I ended up laughing lots along the way. A good time and I have fun visualizing the scenes. Stephanie Plum is a great character- her life and her family is an enjoyable mess.

    "Stephanie is the best!"

    I found this series and almost didn't get it because I hate serieses! As a general rule characters in a series are great and likeable in the first book but just get boring and monotonous with subsequent books. But the Stephanie Plum mysteries take "mystery series" to a whole new level... Janet Evanovich is brilliant and masterfully brings more depth and ingregue to Stephanie's character with this next book and it just keeps getting better!! You will fall all the more in love with Stephanie, Joe, and Lula in this book! Don't miss all the rest of the books to date in this series! The reader for these early books is ok, but I like Lorilei King, who does the later books, better. However don't let it stop you from catching all these early books in the series. They are delightful... just like Stephanie herself!

    Lori Petty is perfect for these first 3 books. I wish she did them all.

    "Love the series!"

    This is the first time I have read this author and have fallen in love with the Stephanie Plum series. I downloaded all 13 books and listened to them all within a week. I couldn’t wait to hear what adventures (and mishaps!) that Stephanie, Joe, Ranger, Lula and the rest of the gang would get into. I’ve read some of the previous reviews. I agree with some and disagree with others. I disagree that it gets old and complacent that Stephanie finds herself in the same situations in every book. It appears to me that Stephanie’s character is just one of those people that trouble and mayhem seem to find. I do agree that narrator Lori Petty is the voice of Stephanie. Narrator Debi Mazar’s accent is a bit heavy for audio books and then after all this Lorilei King takes over as narrator for the rest of the series. While Ms. King’s character voices are awesome (she has such a range!) her Stephanie voice has no Jersey accent at all and sound just a little too “blue blood”. Otherwise Ms. King is a joy to listen to. You will fall in love with Ranger and Joe! Both are too hot to handle……no wonder Stephanie can’t choose between the two!

    Don’t let the narrator changes deter you from listening to this funny charming, and at times mysterious series. You won’t be disappointed if you’re looking for something light hearted to listen to.

    "I laughed till I cried"

    This book was recommended to me as a nice change from the serious mysteries I usually read. What a surprise. I loved this book. It was entertaining, funny and full of surprises. Down loaded the next book and can't wait to start it.

    "TOOOO funny to be a bedtime book"

    Sometimes the second book in a series is a letdown. In my case I had to warm to the first book and with this one I was on fire with laughter right off the bat.

    Stephanie Plum breaks all the rules and is the least likely bounty hunter of all time. She is down-to-earth and gets herself into hilarious situations as she just plods ahead not really knowing what she is doing.

    Do you remember Vicki Lawrence as "Mama" from the Carol Burnett show? In this book Stephanie enlists Grandma Mazur to help her search funeral homes for the allusive Kenny Mancusco and 26 missing caskets. I was rolling on the floor with laughter. This is NOT a bed time book. I pictured “Mama” with her white wig as crazy Grandma Mazur. This is a hilarious comedy in it’s purest form with the mystery on the side.

    Detective Joe Morelli and Grandma Mazur are marvelous supporting characters with a lot of depth. I can hardly wait to read the next Stephanie adventure and I hope both of these characters are a part of it.

    "Two keeps on rollin'"

    One was pretty great and two keeps the momentum going. I love these characters and love the twists in two. How fun! Can't wait to read three!

    "Love the story, hate the abridged version"

    Great story, made utterly confusing in this abridged version. Characters are cut out and the plot gets hard to follow. I love Janet Evanovich but get an unabridged version if you can, this one really let me down after previously listening to C. J. Critt's fantastic unabridged reading of "One for the Money".

    "Unabridged PLEASE!!!!!!!"

    As an abridged version this is very good - Lori Petty's voice and accent are completely Stephanie although she is a little limited in her range of voices. Her interpretation of Ranger's voice is also very good - different to that which I imagined but I think that my imagination got it wrong!!!

    But I shall repeat my whinge of One for the Money - we need unabridged versions of these great books - I think that the books are less funny and less menacing in their abridged forms. Nonetheless I would recommend that everybody should get to know Stephanie Plum in whatever media is available to them!

    "Great story. Wrong reader."
    What would have made Two for the Dough better?

    It's a great story but Lori Patty reads it too fast in a fairy monotoned style. Accent sounds slightly Spanish which is wrong for the character, Stephanie Plum who is suppose to have a jersey accent.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Two for the Dough?

    Story is good. The reader is disappointing.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Lori Petty’s performances?

    No.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment because I like Stephanie Plum novels.


    Any additional comments?

    Listen to C.J. Critt. She reads them brilliantly!

    "Wish it was unabridged."

    Like many of the early Stephanie Plum novels this is let down by being an abridged version, I think they are much better as unabridged. Narrator does a good job though.
