For many, summer is a time for light, fun reading. Tracy in our Morden branch enjoys Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum novels, and she is not alone. One of her favourites is One for the money.
The heroine in the novel, Stepahnie Plum, is a woman in her late 20s who finds herself desperately in need of money. She learns of a $10,000 reward for the capture of an expoliceman, Joe Morelli. With the help of her cousin Vinnie, a bail bondsman, she takes on the job, despite having no prior experience in this line of work.
Their search for Morelli takes them to the seediest parts of Trenton, and into contact with some dangerous people. Stephanie learns that all is not as it seems and the novel takes some interesting plot twists.
Janet Evanovich is definitely a popular author at any time of the year. If you are having trouble finding some entertaining summer reading, just ask the staff at any of the branches. We’ll be happy to make suggestions.
