The Stephanie Plum collection is a very easy to read collection of novels good for the reader who likes a good set of characters and doesn't require a lot of mental stimulation. I'm not criticizing the author's writing style, it has been a very successful book series and many readers enjoy this brain candy style of book.

Stephanie is an original New Jersey girl who has found herself trapped in a job as a bounty hunter and has a knack for getting herself into dangerous situations while capturing her bad guy of the week. Mixed into the equation is her really funny family, especially her grandmother, her friends at the bounty hunter office and the ever present Detective hottie. Janet Evanovich does an excellent job in sprinkling in new characters as the book series progresses and spends ample time reviewing the past so new readers can pick up wherever.

I picked up this series by recommendation from a friend, and admittedly ran out and bought book 4 as soon as I had finished the first three books. After that, I was finished with Stephanie and friends for the time being, but I'm not saying the next time I find myself utterly trapped with nowhere to go for a week, I won't reach for something this easy to read again. And although I would describe parts of the writing as cute or funny, I didn't find it hilarious which was the common description I read on book covers and even the lady who sold me the collection at B&N used. Maybe my funnybone needs a tuneup?

Overall, I would recommend this book series for a light read to someone who enjoys fiction mixed with a little action and suspense.

    Fun Read

    These are not great literature. They are a fun escapist type read. The characters are fun and quirky. They are also short enough to read quickly and have just enough mystery to keep you guessing.

    A harmless read

    Jane Evonovich's books will probably never be my favorites, but I'm definitely planning on reading all of them. They're easy, fun, humorous. And I like the romantic tension, and the sexual innuendos.

    Lite and Breezy

    These books are a good lite and breezy read. The story moves right along, the central character is believeable and sympathetic. Good plot and easy humor. Very similar to Kinsey Milhone novels by Sue Grafton. The main character, Stephanie Plum is surrounded by other interesting characters. Definitely recommend this series.

    Just Plain Fun!

    Janet grabs you by making her Plum character very real. You feel as if she could be your friend from school, or maybe she is even a lot like you! The stories are fun, fast paced, and not too heavy for "get away" reading.

    Light and funny read

    I read all three of the first books in order, and it felt as if I was continuing the same book. I enjoyed them enough that this was a good thing, as I sometimes feel let down when I finish a book I like. I purchased the next 3 and am reading them now.
