The Stephanie Plum series written by Janet Evanovich is one of my absolute favorite series. I could continue to re-read the books every few months without ever getting bored. Evanovich paints a very vibrant world of New Jersey where nothing is ever dull!
You get to follow the main character Stephanie who is a lady down on her luck. She ends up taking a job at her cousin Vinnie’s bail bond company after losing her job as a lingerie sales representative. Stephanie embarks on an amazing journey of trying to catch fugitives who skip out on their bond. The series is literally packed full of everything from criminals, mysteries, love, family, and cars blowing up on a consistent basis!
The main character is one of the most laughable and easiest characters to relate with that I have ever seen. I just love how real she is and how her brain works. She is always getting herself in trouble or having to chase down her young at heart eccentric grandmother. The story-line of each book is always unique and fresh which easily keeps you entertained throughout the entire series. What I love most about this series besides the delightful characters you fall in love with is how many books are in the series.
If you want a long journey and a series to cozy up with for a long period of time this is the one for you! There are currently twenty-four books in total I believe. There also are in-between books that have their own bizarre twist and crazy storylines. These are not as long as the series books tend to be and always have some sort of supernatural twist to them; however, they are very delightful to read!
