This the first book in the Stephanie Plum Series, I actually thought this was good book. Stephanie Plum is a woman down on her luck, try do odd jobs to make money to pay her outstanding bills. As a last resort she begs her cousin Vinnie a bail bonds for a job as a bounty hunter. This book is about her ups and downs of learning to become a bounty hunter, as well as trying to hunt down the one person that Stephanie can’t stand the most Joe Morelli. She still as a grudge against him from high school, when he took her virginity and never called her back.
I had my doubts at first, but it kept you on your toes the whole time trying to figure out who was innocent and who were guilty.Telling the story from the main character’s perspective was good too. Sometimes most authors can get carried away with being in the main characters head too much ( I don’t like that). The heat between Plum and Morelli was awesome, and written very well, not overly done. It was like you didn’t know if they wanted to be together or kill each other. The character development was great too, you got to know a little bit about ever character in the book. She did a really good job having a little back story on the side characters in the story. The ending of the book was a surprise turn around that I did not see coming (which I love). I can’t wait to read the remaining books in this series.
