Happy Friday!! Happy Good Friday, in fact!
Do you celebrate Easter? My family doesn't go to church regularly, but I have been attending the Unitarian church with my group of girlfriends, so we are going to the 9:30 service and then after that I am headed out to Dexter to my grandmother's for lunch/dinner (linner?).
Today I'm linking up with Heather for Book Club Friday and this week I'm talking about One For the Money, the first book in the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich. This series is an extremely popular women's mystery series and once the movie with was made (with Katherine Heigl) I knew that at some point I was going to need to pick up the first book. This type of series is not really my thing, and I rarely read murder mysteries, but I was curious.
I wish I could say I totally enjoyed it, but I didn't. I found parts of it to be really cheesy (which, I guess, was to be expected) and at times I felt like it really crawled by. In fact, I think I was reading this book for a few weeks (while reading other books). By the last 80 pages or so it really picked up for me, but that is probably because the romance part of it began to pick up. The book ended with a little romantic cliffhanger so I'm sure I will end up picking up the second book in the series just to find out what happens with that! Maybe that book will hook me?! Clearly I'm a sucker for romance.
Are you a fan of the Stephanie Plum series?
