    I Love The Stephanie Plum Mysteries..

    I think they are a lot of fun!  They make me laugh! I think Janet Evanovich has written a great series.  I hope someone makes movies out of one of the series.  I think Sandra Bullock would make a great Stephanie Plum!

    I read it before I saw the movie; I loved the book. It's composed of six stories that happen in different places and different times, starting from the 1850 to the post apocalyptic future. Each story is interrupted by the next in the most thrilling time except for the last one...
