Two for the Dough: A Stephanie Plum Novel

Abridged / Go to Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Janet Evanovich

Narrated By: Lori Petty

Publisher: Simon & Schuster

Date: February 1996

Duration: 3 hours 0 minutes


Janet Evanovich's first Stephanie Plum outing, the Dilys award-winning One for the Money, was a
finalist for the Edgar, Anthony, Agatha, Shamus, and Macavity awards, and was named the book 'most fun
to sell' by the Independent Mystery Booksellers of America in 1994. Now she once again takes to the mean
streets of Trenton, armed with attitude (not to mention stun guns, defense sprays, killer flashlights, and
her untrustworthy .38) to find Kenny Mancuso, who recently left the army, inadvertently shot his best
friend, and is on the run in violation of a bond.

Aided by her tough bounty hunter coach and her irrepressible Grandma Mazur, Stephanie once again forms a
rocky alliance with fast-talking, slow-handed vice cop Joe Morelli for the tumultous chase through back
alleys and Grandma's favorite funeral parlors.

Witty, fresh, and full of surprises, Two for the Dough is the Stephanie Plum sequel fans have been
waiting for.

    First Janet Evanovich book I’ve read and I liked the story and the reader!

  • Lorin DePinto

    I love the Stephanie Plum series and Janet Evanovich is such a great writer!

    Usual Janet stuff - did not care for the narrator. The narrator from the later books is much better. Fun read tho!

    I enjoyed the content. I love Janet Evanovich books. I did not care for the reader. I did not like how the character's voices were portrayed and I didn't feel like there was emotion behind the reading. I love Loreli King's character voices. After hearing her, it's disappointing to hear the Stephanie Plum novels read by other artists.

    Not a fan of abridged books, but so far the Evanovich novels are entertaining. Will continue to rent...

    I have read all the books in the series and just started listening to the books. Unfortunately, I received High Five first which was plagued by horrible narration. In comparison, this audio version was outstanding. I think her Ranger sounded more Mexican than Cuban, but I could overlook that. If you like the book, you will like this audiobook.


    I've listened to several Plum novels and I was not impressed by the narrator. Her voice was very hard to distinguish between characters. Great story though.

    First of all, it's abridged... don't get me started on that. But I like the series, so I thought I'd give this a listen. Unfortunately, I didn't make it through the first disc. Lori Petty, whom I like as an actor, is a really terrible reader. Stephanie Plum is a great, quirky character, and she's the first-person narrator of the story. But Petty has no "reading rhythm" at all, and certainly doesn't sound like she "is" Stephanie Plum. I'll wait for the unabridged version, read by Lorelei King, who also reads Evanovich's Jamie Swift series.

    The story was difficult to follow because of the reader. The story was read so fast I had trouble following it. I do not recommend this book the way it is presented. I could not complete the story because it was so difficult to follow.

  • Kimberly Elliott

    After listening to Book 5 and Book 9, I had high hopes for Book 2, but I wasn't impressed. Maybe it was because this was the abridged version and so a lot of the story seemed to be missing. Don't think I will select abridged again from this author.
