one For The Money by Janet Evanovich

this novel is affectionally referred to by fans "as where it all began" as it establishes the wonderful characters who reappear in future novels. The book is filled with drama, humor and mystery as it follows the experiences of Stephanie Plum, bounty hunter. It was a real page turner for me.
