New York Times bestseller Janet Evanovich’s One for the Money is being reissued for only $14.99 to coincide with the feature film due out this summer.

Welcome to Trenton, New Jersey, home to wiseguys, average Joes, and Stephanie Plum, who sports a big attitude and even bigger money problems. Stephanie needs cash fast—but times are tough, and soon she’s forced to turn to the last resort of the truly desperate: family….

Stephanie lands a gig at her sleazy cousin Vinnie’s bail bonding company. She’s got no experience. But that doesn’t matter. And neither does the fact that the bail jumper in question is local vice cop Joe Morelli. From the time he first looked up her dress to the time he first got into her pants, to the time Steph hit him with her father’s Buick, M-o-r-e-l-l-i has spelled t-r-o-u-b-l-e. And now the hot guy is in hot water-wanted for murder…. Download and start listening now!

    " I have read this book before and am still entertained by Janet Evanovich's wit and humor. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Meagan | 2/19/2014

    " There were definite funny bits, but I'm pretty sure Stephanie Plum is a moron and wouldn't actually have ended up alive. It was a fluffy little book despite a few gruesome scenes, and good for leisurely holiday reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dawn Doran | 2/15/2014

    " I love Janet's books... I got hooked with the first and can't stop reading them...they are such easy reads... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenny Mcdonald | 2/13/2014

    " A lighthearted, fast read. Predictable, but humorous. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kendra Plunkett | 2/13/2014

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lori | 1/18/2014

    " Can't believe I found a book where I liked the movie better! It was ok, but I wouldn't bother with another one in the series. There were some funny parts, but I found it a bit raunchy. You can have a good plot, funny, suspenseful...without the nasty language, in my opinion. I was disappointed as I was wanting to find a series that would keep me occupied for a long time! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rosemary | 1/17/2014

    " Pretty fun, overall fluffy, but it builds suspense well. Good light reading. "

    " I loved this book and cannot wait for the second one to check in at the library! The character reminded me of myself. I would be just like that if I had to branch out and start a drastically new job, and who does not have a Morelli in their past:) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bèbè | 1/5/2014

    " Again, movie made it okay. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 April | 12/10/2013

    " Just ok. I kept waiting for it to get better and it never really did. Maybe if I were from New Jersey I would have enjoyed this more. I really liked the love/hate relationship with Morelli, but was unimpressed with the mystery part of the plot. "
