GOODREADS BOOK BLURB:
SERIES / GENRES:
Two for the Dough is not as good as One for the Money but is still enjoyable. It seemed to drag on a little longer, and the action was more spread out with lots of stakeouts this time.
It was nice having some character development in place of non-stop action, though. You can never have too much Grandma Mazur, and it was nice to see Stephanie’s mother support her as well. While the escalation of the Morelli relationship is excellent, I missed Ranger in this one. Especially as she’s still learning the ropes of being a bounty hunter, I’d love to see more Ranger lessons.
I enjoy Stephanie as a protagonist; she’s tough but real. She does what she needs to but isn’t perfect and has emotions and realistic reactions to violence, threats, and danger. I like seeing a female protagonist badass who is allowed to have flaws but still be strong. When Stephanie’s living back at home, the writing perfectly encapsulates the feelings of being back home as an adult where everyone feels too big and the rooms feel too small.
So overall, I’ll accept the trade-off of character development instead of action. I picture these novels as a tv show, and every book is another episode. The first one was the pilot with a quick introduction to everyone with some action and violence thrown in to get you hooked. Now it’s the second episode where you learn more about the cast with some creepy new characters thrown in to keep it interesting. I’m looking forward to episode three!
