#MissionBBA Review: Two for the Dough by Janet Evanovich (Audiobook)(Rating 4.25 Wine Glasses)

Posted September 22, 2011 by Felicia S in Uncategorized / 12 Comments


 From Goodreads: Kenny Mancuso shot his childhood buddy Moogey Bues and then jumped bail. Now bounty hunter Stephanie Plum is on the case to track Kenny down. Then someone finished Moogey off, Kenny can’t be found, twenty-four coffins are missing, and there’s some ex-army heavy artillery roaming the streets.

NOTE: I am know I am one of the last people ever to start reading this series but better late than never right? It is as fun (so far) as people said. Stephanie Plum is one hot mess πŸ™‚

Audio Review: C.J. Critt actually did a wonderful job with the narration. My problem was with the long pauses between chapters. I am guessing that it is because the book may have been recorded for cassette tape rendering.

Quick Review: Since most people have read the Stephanie Plum series there isn’t much I can add about what a joy the stories are. In the 2nd book there still isn’t a whole lot of the choose Team Morelli or Team Ranger stuff. Right now I am Team Grandma Mazur—that woman is a hoot. Since most of this book took place in and around a funeral home (one of her favorite pasttimes is to attend funerals), she was in the story a lot. Stephanie, Ranger, and Morelli were also fantastic though Ranger’s role was a bit limited. Overall, if you are looking for a fun mystery series with great characters then I would highly recommend reading these books.

    I thought that this was a fun read when I read it as well. Grandma Mazur is so much fun to read about and she never fails to crack me up πŸ™‚

    hey girl!No worries you have a lot to catch up on. I have to read from 14 on and I love my Danger Ranger. Do not touch me RANGER or else… you don't want to think about what I'll do to your eyebrows when you're sleeping… yeppers NO EYEBROWS – so you'll have to pencil them in. Muahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh… evil laugh…. Muahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh ;P

    O dear, I also have not read this series, exept for the occasional anthology here and there. Not sure the writing style agrees with me, but I will try one day.

    Oh geeze… so now I am the only one who hasn't read these now/ Damn… I need to get started. I keep looking at them, but never picked one up. I have no idea why!

    YAY! So glad you're loving this series so far, every book cracks me up. I think they get funnier and more ridiculous as they go. And Ranger comes into play more which works out for me since I'm solidly Team Ranger:) And I want a grandma like Grandma Mazur, she kills me.

    I'm glad you like it, it's a great series. I've read all of them for now, and I'm waiting for the sequel. In the end a lot of persons say that it's always the same but I still like it ! I hope it will be the same for you !
