Two For The Dough
Stephanie Plum is back! And this time, Joe Morelli is on her side…well, more so than before. When Kenny Mancuso shoots his childhood best friend, Stephanie’s bail bondsman cousin, Vinnie bails him out. When Kenny skips bail, he’s made one, big mistake. Instead of just any fugitive apprehension agent, he gets, ‘the bombshell bounty hunter’ with bad luck for cars, men and life.
Stephanie Plum has only been with Vincent Plum Bail Bonds for two months. And she’s getting the hang of it…almost. Mentor Ranger has given her the reigns and Vinnie has a new filing clerk. It seems that Vinnie can’t keep his salami to himself. The new clerk, ex ‘ho Lula – returning from One For The Money – is big and black and well versed on what to do with Vinnie should he try something on the full figured woman.
Stephanie decides that the best way to find Kenny is to talk to his second childhood friend, Spiro Stiva, undertaker Constatine Stiva’s stepson and in charge whilst Constatine is having his appendix out. From the word go, Stephanie knows that there is something strange with Spiro. Especially when he asks Stephanie to find twenty-four coffins of his.
Things go from bad to worse when Stephanie starts to receive mail with dead appendages in them.
But Stephanie can always count on her family to complicate things. From a Grandmother who owns a gun, to a mother who prays to God that Stephanie will consider a career change.
“It’s bad enough that you have this job, now people are mailing bits of corpses to you. Why can’t you just work at the Button Factory like all the other girls’ daughters?” Stephanie’s mother, Ellen.
Loaded with luck, Lula and the indestructible Powder Blue ‘53 Buick that she’s borrowed, Stephanie faces another case head-on. But will she get her man Crazy Kenny? Or will he get her?
