Janet Evanovich/Stephanie Plum News

If you haven't heard of Janet Evanovich or Stephanie Plum, you have been missing out on a lot of great laughs. Evanovich is the author of 16 Stephanie Plum novels, the latest being Sizzling Sixteen. Stephanie is a Trenton, New Jersey former lingerie buyer turned bail bondswoman/bounty hunter (for which she she has no training or skills) who is joined by a host of unusual characters
  • Lula ( a plus sized woman and a former hooker)
  • Connie (a secretary who carries an NRA card)
  • Vinnie (owner of the bail bonds company who is married to the daughter of a mob boss)
  • Grandma Mazur (Stephanie's Grandmother whose idea of a great social event is a "showing" at the local funeral parlor).

Evanovich also adds in two gorgeous males (Ranger--the man in black with special ops skills and Joe Morelli--a vice cop with ties to Stephanie from high school--who have a soft spot in their hearts for her. Stephanie has a knack for falling into criminal circumstances as she tries to make a living bringing in bail jumpers so is always in need of being rescued.

The big news is that One for the Money, based on the first book in the series, is currently being made into a movie with Katherine Heigl playing Stephanie Plum. It's still not too late to have some fun this summer. Start reading the Plum series now so you can be primed for the release of the movie in 2012. SH
