Book: “One for the Money” by Janet Evanovich (1994)
Welcome to Trenton, New Jersey, home to Stephanie Plum, who sports a big attitude and even bigger money problems (since losing her job as a lingerie buyer). Stephanie needs cash--fast--but times are tough, and soon she's forced to turn to the last resort of the truly desperate: family. Stephanie lands a job at her sleazy cousin Vinnie's bail bonding company with zero experience and no problem that the bail jumper in question is local vice cop and ex-boyfriend Joe Morelli.
Movie: “One for the Money” Releases in theaters: July 8, 2011. Starring Katherine Heigl, John Leguizamo, Debbie Reynolds and Sherri Shepherd, “One for the Money” tells the story of newly-divorced Stephanie Plum.
