One for the MoneyBook - 1994
She's a product of the "burg," a blue-collar pocket of Trenton where houses are attached and narrow, cars are American, windows are clean, and (God forbid you should be late) dinner is served at six.
Now Stephanie's all grown up and out on her own, living five miles from Mom and Dad's, doing her best to sever the world's longest umbilical cord. Her mother is a meddler, and her grandmother is a few cans short of a case.
One for the Money is now a major motion picture starring Katherine Heigl as Stephanie Plum and Debbie Reynolds as Grandma Mazur.

SummaryAdd a Summary
A recently-laid off woman is down to her last few dollars. She's hocked everything she has and is forced to work for her bail bondsman uncle as a bounty hunter just to buy groceries. The story follows her exploits at learning the business while tracking a most uncanny bond-skipper. In the interim, she meets up with some really inscrutable characters.
