No, I don't only read when I eat, and I don't always eat when I read. Stephanie Plum, however, is a girl who can eat and she makes me hungry -- donuts, drive-thru, and mom's cooking, yum!
Her awesome eating habits aside, Stephanie Plum is still my favorite bad-ass Jersey girl. Joe Morelli makes another appearance in Two for the Dough (Stephanie Plum, No. 2) , and I hope he continues to show up in the next book in the series. We see *ahem* more of Morelli, although he and Stephanie fail to seal the deal, so to speak. Joe Morelli is that perfect blend of the cool, funny, and handsome guys I went to high school with. I actually started to formulate a little recipe on this page complete with names of guys from my old neighborhood, but I don't want anyone to feel left out, nor do I want their wives sending me hate mail. Moving on!
Once again, I was cracking up while reading this book. One of my favorite parts was when Stephanie was in the beauty parlor, thinking she's all tough because she is carrying concealed. Meanwhile, it becomes an all-out competition among the ladies as to who's packing the most heat. Hysterical! Illegal, sure, but funny as hell.
Ok, back to Stephanie's eating habits for a quick second. Since this whole book cracks me up, I will be taking my favorite lines and sharing them with you. Here's a conversation between Stephanie and Joe Morelli:
"You have a terrific family, but they'll have you on Valium in forty-eight hours."
"Plums don't do Valium. We mainline cheesecake."
If you're looking for a fun, easy read, I highly recommend Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series.
