Two for the Dough
Bounty hunter Stephanie Plum's new job is taking her places she never expected - to strangers' funerals with Grandma Mazur, out onto a rusty fire escape, and under sexy Joe Morelli.
Ruining cars and making enemies as she goes, Stephanie is hunting for a Trenton boy who shot his buddy and skipped his court date. The case seemed simple enough until Morelli started taking undue interest in it - and bodies started piling up with missing parts. Feisty Grandma Mazur is more than a bit player in this sequel to One for the Money that manages to be just as charming and funny as the original.
For other series that combine strong female leads with mystery and action, try A is for Alibi by Sue Grafton, or the Carlotta Carlyle books by Linda Barnes (number one is A Trouble of Fools).
