Rainer Maria Rilke

"Live a while in these books, learn from them what seems to you worth learning, but above all love them. This love will be repaid you a thousand and a thousand times, and however your life may turn,-it will, I am certain of it, run through the fabric of your growth as one of the most important threads among all the threads of your experiences, disappointments, and joys."--Rainer Maia Rilke

Hilarious Thriller!

One for the Money by Stephani Evanovitch
(Adult Thriller)

This is one hilarious thriller--bet you don't hear those words too often.  But, it's true-absolutely hilarious.  Pee-in-your-pants hilarious.  Snort-your-drink hilarious.  People-move-their-seats-on-the-airplane-you're-laughin-so-loud hilarious.  (Sorry, Vegas flight-I just didn't know I would be chuckling and guffawing all the way through.)

Stephanie Plum in just that-plum out of luck, plum out of a job, plum out of romance and plum out of money.  When she hears of a job opening at her cousin Vinnie's bail bonds operation, she goes for it.  Only problem is....she's a cream puff and a real screw-up.  A girl after my own heart.

On the way to messing up her first case, she gets tangled in the life of Joe Morelli, her first love (for want of a more inappropriate word).  Morelli and Plum have a love-hate relationship hearkening back to their childhood.  Stands to reason this is the guy she would be assigned to bring in. 

On top of all this hilarity and romantic tension, there is also quite an engaging mystery and plenty of danger and intrigue.

Plum, I have taken the bait and am well way on my to #2.
