Description

You’ve lost your job as a department store lingerie buyer, your car’s been repossessed, and most of your furniture and small appliances have been sold off to pay last month’s rent. Now the rent is due again. And you live in New Jersey. What do you do?

If you’re Stephanie Plum, you become a bounty hunter. But not just a nickel-and-dime bounty hunter; you go after the big money. That means a cop gone bad. And not just any cop. She goes after Joe Morelli, a disgraced former vice cop who is also the man who took Stephanie’s virginity at age 16 and then wrote details on a bathroom wall. With pride and rent money on the line, Plum plunges headlong into her first case, one that pits her against ruthless adversaries - people who’d rather kill than lose.

The New York Times Book Review calls Stephanie Plum “a Jersey girl with Bette Middler’s mouth and Cher’s fashion sense.” In Stephanie Plum, Evanovich has created a resourceful and humorous character who stands apart from the pack of gritty female detectives.

I love reading Janet Evanovich because her....

...mysteries are light and funny. I doubt I will ever give any of her Stephanie Plum mysteries 5 stars, but I do love the series. My preferred reading is by authors like Vince Flynn, Mark Greaney, Ben Coes, Brett Battles, Lee Child, Tom Wood, Karin Slaughter, etc.; books that are really intense thrillers. But there are times I want lighter fare but still good mysteries and that's when writers like Janet Evanovich,, Rhys Bowen, and Chris Grabenstein are most enjoyable.

One for the Money was written over 20 years ago. It and the books that follow it in the series are the perfect light and fun fare. Originally CJ Critt was the wonderful narration voice of Stephanie Plum. More recently Lorelei King narrates. Both are superb.

Recommended!

Liked the story but not the narrator

I found it somewhat difficult to make my brain differentiate between all of the male characters because Critt made them all sound the same. If the author didn't specify who was talking, you couldn't tell by the narration. Critt's too-long pauses between her sentences became annoying.

Overall, I enjoyed the story but didn't love it because of the narration. I'll trudge through books 2-3 just so I can get to a different narrator in book 4.

NOT THE GREATEST.

This series was recommended to me with the warning that the first books in the series are not as good as the later ones. I had a hard time sticking with this one and the second book, but I'm on the third one now and am totally hooked! I makes me laugh out loud at times. I can't wait to get to the later books that are narrated by Lorelei King, because I really enjoy her narration of the Mercy Thompson books. So hang in there, this series definitely does get better!

Horrible narrator detracts from book

Janet Evanovich is a publishing legend, but you'd never know it from this audiobook. C.J. Critt is the worst Audible narrator I've ever heard. Her deep breaths and pauses after every sentence distract from the story, and make you wonder if she has emphysema! Too bad she narrated the first 4 books in the Stephanie Plum series - the books deserve better!

This will make you miss Lorelei King!

If, like me, you found Janet Evanovich by her more recent books, and then were tempted to buy this book in anticipation of the movie, don't bother! The narrator's breathing drove me crazy. It may have just been the production back in those days that couldn't edit it out, but it was way too distracting. I look forward to each book narrated by Lorelei King and will definitely skip all those narraged by C. J. Critt in the future. Even on sale, it is not worth it.

Enjoyable and Funny!

Wonderfully cozy. A lighthearted, mystery, to curl up with, and pass the time. There were several places where I laughed out loud causing people to stare at me. Stephanie, seems to get herself into, ongoing, silly predicaments. This was my first Janet Evanovich book and I REALLY enjoyed it. I found the narrator to be perfect, but I didn't have any others to compare, as did some of the reviewers. I just purchased four more books and it seems to be quite a large series, so it should keep me out of trouble for a while! I will take the advice of other reviewers and read, rather than listen, to the abridged audiobooks. I've never cared for any of the abridged books that I've purchased.

Ho Hum

I am still unsure why the newly released unabridged versions of Evanovich's books are being read by someone who is not Lorelei King. Critt is a mediocre Stephanie Plum at best. The story is typical first in a series, a lot of background info and explanations of characters we'll see throughout the series. Overall, the book is just kind of meh.

Slow. See comment section.

Would you try another book from Janet Evanovich and/or C. J. Critt?

No

Would you be willing to try another one of C. J. Critt’s performances?

no

Did One for the Money inspire you to do anything?

no

Any additional comments?

I am listening to another story now, but continue to use this to help put me asleep at night. It is interestering enough to be engaging, but not enough so to interfere with drifting off to sleep.---- That sums up the story quite well.

Terrible reader

The reader/performer used such inappropriate inflection and phrasing that she was really annoying to listen to. I very nearly deleted the book before I heard it all. She apparently didn't have any feel for the story she was reading. The main character was annoying also, and rather poorly drawn, in my opinion. No more Janet Evanovitch for me and I will try to avoid any books narrated by C.J. Critt.
