Winners: Kate Ryan and Lisa Warren
It was called “One for the Money” and was about Stephanie Plum – a sassy lass from New Jersey with tonnes of attitude and a serious lack of money. As a last resort, Stephanie turns to her cousin for help and lands a job working at Vinnie’s bail bonding company.
Stephanie has no experience, but that doesn’t seem to matter. Her first assignment is to track down Joe Morelli, an ex-boyfriend who also happens to be a local vice cop.
I could go on and tell you more about the story, but I don’t want to spoil it for you…
I absolutely loved the book. Actually, I loved it so much, that I logged into amazon.com and bought the whole Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich (I think it was about 12 books – but there are more now).
One of the Money has now been made into a film, starring Katherine Heigl as Stephanie Plum and Jason O’Mara as Joe Morelli.
It’s a thrill packed, action comedy and a great film for one of those times you want to watch something - which doesn’t require much thought.
When I read the books, I imagined someone different as Stephanie Plum, but I think Heigl is well suited to this character.
Sherri Shepherd (from The View) is absolutely fabulous as Lula and Daniel Sunjata is a wayyyyyy better Ranger than I imagined.
With thanks to Roadshow, I have 2 copies of One for the Money to giveaway.
