Publisher's Summary

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.

Jersey girl: listen to more in the Stephanie Plum series.

    "Two for the Dough is a Must Read!!"
    What made the experience of listening to Two for the Dough the most enjoyable?

    CJ Critt is a great narrator for this series! She really makes each personality come to life. I enjoy having some of the same characters surface again in this second book of the Stephanie Plum series.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    It has to be Stephanie Plum. She just plays such a dunder-head of a personality. In the part she plays as a Bounty Hunter, it is just so darn funny the way she plays the part. In reality I would think someone who would be as dense a part as she plays ,would surely get knocked off, but she always comes out on top with the help of all of her awesomely funny friends. I love it!


    What about C. J. Critt’s performance did you like?

    Like I said earlier. She has a knack for creating the characters in a way that they really come to life in your mind.s eye


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

    Yes. If I had the time to do that, I certainly would. great read!!


    Any additional comments?

    I really like this series. Janet Evanovich has a winning combination of characters in this series. I like her style of writing. Unlike some other authors that I read, she does not use a lot of minutia to clutter up the story. It is always quite straight forward.

    "Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum rocks!!"

    I have read all of Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum books and enjoy listening to them again. They are funny and entertaining. Worth listening to or reading. You'll find some of the characters hysterically funny and Ranger and Morelli are hunks who love Stephanie and are willing to put up with her antics and pull her out of trouble when needed. There's also funeral loving Grandma and ex-prostitue, Lulu.

    "I could not get into it"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I tried listening while on the beach on vacation and it was way too slow. I will try again, but it was far too boring.


    What could Janet Evanovich have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I don't know


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Didn't. Just slow book.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I never finished it so I don't know.

    If you could sum up Two for the Dough in three words, what would they be?

    fun, humorous, silly

    It moved along quickly

    nothing extreme but I did laugh at times


    Any additional comments?

    Although I enjoy the Plum series, I don't know if I can read or listen to 19 of them. For me, although I love the sarcasm, she can be too silly.

    "Very pour narrating"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    This is the worst I ever heard of the autio books by Janet Evanovich. It was verey hard to figure out who was talking in this book. C J Critt does not change her voice at all, makes it hard to determind who is talking.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Different reader.


    Was Two for the Dough worth the listening time?

    Good Question, it would have been better with a different reader.

    "Seriously?"

    I knew this book would be a funny romp in the continued life of our favorite bounty hunter. Unfortunately, I'll have to read all about it, because after just a couple of chapters, I simply could not continue with the horrible narration. How could you take a classic series like this one and destroy the humor, the prosody, the timing? Do I sound disappointing? You bet I am. I seldom toss an audio title, even if the narration is suspect. But this one? The only direction I'll take here will be towards my Nook where I know I'll enjoy the tale. Shame on you. I paid for this title. Shame on me.

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

    The sexual tension between Stephani and Moreli. All the characters that make up Stephanies' family.


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

    When Stephanie finds a cat in Rex's cage. Thank goodness for the soupcan!


    What does C. J. Critt bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    So funny how she does the mother. And yet kinda tuns me on when she does Moreli and Ranger. Very confusing, but brilliant.


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

    Laugh and laugh and laugh.


    Any additional comments?

    I am planning on listening to the entire series.
