I’ve read this one at least eight times, now. I do adore Evanovich’s first thirteen or so of her Stephanie Plum series. I’ve been wanting to figure out where in the series I started to become disenchanted, and I want to know what it was about this series that I enjoyed so much. What’s missing in those later Stephanie Plums.

I couldn’t find my One for the Money, so I started my analysis read with Two for the Dough.

It was towards the end that a) I remembered why I was doing this re-read, lol, and b) a couple examples that leapt out (to remind me!). I gotta say, I really do miss these early exchanges with Grandma. She is such a crack-up.

“Jesus!” Morelli said, ducking out of the way, taking the gun from Grandma. “Where the hell did you get this cannon?”

“Borrowed it,” Grandma said. “And I used it on your no-good cousin, but he got away.”

Morelli studied his shoes for a beat before speaking. “I don’t suppose this gun is registered?”

“What do you mean?” Grandma asked. “Registered where?”

“Get rid of it,” Morelli said to me. “Get it out of my sight.”

Then there’s this one.

“…I wasn’t watching my car.” He glanced over at the Buick. “No damage?”

“Scratched the rear bumper.”

“Does the army know about this car?”
