    "Just plain fun."

    This started out for me as a series to read simply as research for my own work. I am only two books in, but I am a fan. This is just simple, plain old fun. Stephanie is at it again, and this time, her grandma is the co-star, but she steals the scene every time she shows up. Easily my favorite character.

    Summer is coming, and if you want some mindless entertainment with wit and charm, this is the book series to grab.

    Critt has me hooked with her Grandma voice!

    "Narrator ruined it for me"

    I LOVED listening to Lori Petty narrate the first book... but unfortunately she doesn't read the unabridged versions, which I prefer. C.J. just doesn't do it, like Lori does the Brooklyn accent! I could have really gotten hooked on this series after listening to the first book with Lori Narrating. But if C.J. does all the unabridged, then I'll probably not continue the series. The Abridged versions are way too short and cut too much out.

    "Funny and entertaining"
    Would you listen to Two for the Dough again? Why?

    Makes me laugh when the Grandmother gets involved in sluthing


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Stephanie Plum and her adventures in recovery agent, then using her grandmother to help. Too funny how it all ends up.


    Which character – as performed by C. J. Critt – was your favorite?

    The NJ accent in the characters are believable.


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

    When the grandmother looks through Stephany Plum's pocket book.


    Any additional comments?

    Almost makes me want to try to be a recovery agent for the money.

    "First time reader/listner"

    This book had me laughing out lloud at work and distrupting the very quiet peace we have around here. I love the humor, it wasn't over done but was right on time so it went perfet with the story and tthe characters. The story was good and the characters were well written. I am not over joyed with the performance unfortunately, there's a lot of audible deep breathes before almost each word or break, the silences at the end of the each chapter makes you think something is wrong with the book or you got cut off somehow, the transitions could be better. I like her voice for Stephanie and some of the other characters but not for grandma and some of the others. These are not deal breakers just my own observations from the other many books I listen to on Audible, this one seems to be choppy and not as polished. I hope they get better with each installment.

    "Great book"

    My. Favorite books are the Stephanie Plum books by Janet Evanovich. The reader of this book, CJ critt, is an amazing reader as well. I really hear the different people's personalities as she reads the book. I highly recommend the series to anybody!
