TWO FOR THE DOUGH
Two For the Dough, Janet Evanovich, Simon & Schuster Inc, 1996, 312 pp
Another romp with Stephanie Plum, bounty hunter, along with Morelli, Ranger and the bunch. A cousin of Morelli's did not make his court date and it turns out he was involved in guns stolen from the military. Something is going on at the funeral home in the burg which includes the funeral director's son so Stephanie's Grandma Mazur, who loves to go to viewings, helps solve the mystery.
The sexual/romantic sparks still fly between Stephanie and Morelli though there is less action of that nature than in the first book. Somehow Evanovich makes it all the more steamy, especially since Stephanie's mom, the tireless cook, has warmed up to Morelli.
I am more hooked than ever because these books provide great distraction, particularly when you've got something going on in life that you just don't want to think about anymore until tomorrow.
(This book is available in hard cover or paperback by special order from Once Upon A Time.)
