Janet Evanovich: Two For The Dough (Rating: 8 out of 10)

I finished reading Two for the Dough by Janet Evanovich and, once again, I had a real good time, definitely better than the time had by the protagonist. Poor Stephanie Plum! Evanovich really puts her through some rough times. Well, at least she almost had sex this time; she actually got so far as getting almost naked for it but — alas — it simply didn't happen! Maybe next time.

One thing I'll say for Evanovich, she does create interesting, colorful, and fully developed characters.

She's also funny as hell (which, honestly, is a dumb phrase when you think about it; make it funny as anything, instead!)

This book wasn't rated any higher for the same reason that the previous book wasn't.

Oh, yeah, and there is a new Stephanie Plum novel out — a "A Stephanie Plum Between-the-Numbers Novel", they're calling it — called Plum Lovin' that I'll have to get around to reading when I'm all caught up with the numbered books.

Here is what Amazon has to say about it:

Watch your back Look both ways Because love is in the air And that means big trouble! Mysterious men have a way of showing up in Stephanie Plum's apartment. When the shadowy Diesel appears, he has a task for Stephanie -- and he's not taking no for an answer. Annie Hart is a "relationship expert" who is wanted for armed robbery and assault with a deadly weapon. Stephanie needs to find her, fast. Diesel knows where she is. So they make a deal: He'll help her get Annie if Stephanie plays matchmaker to several of Annie's most difficult clients. But someone wants to find Annie even more than Diesel and Stephanie. Someone with a nasty temper. And someone with "unmentionable" skills. Does Diesel know more that he's saying about Annie Hart? Does Diesel have secrets he's keeping from Stephanie and the two men in her life -- Ranger and Morelli? With Stephanie Plum in over her head, things are sure to get a little dicey and a little explosive, Jersey style!
