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

The Apple Doesn't Fall Far From the Tree

Two For the Dough by Janet Evanovitch
(Adult Comedy/Mystery)

This second book in the series was just as much fun as the first!

In this installment, Stephanie Plum has some new cases to solve without any real new tricks to solve them.  I've never seen a more inept detective (or bounty hunter), which is, of course, what makes these so fun!

Plum's new case is finding a bail jumper who also just happens to be cousin to Joe Morelli, her arch-nemesis and......potentially more.  Stephanie looks for help in some very nontraditional ways-by following her grandmother to funeral homes around town.  G'ma knows everyone but turns out to be as clumsy and nosy as her granddaughter.  When a shady undertaker hires her to find some missing caskets, Stephanie and Joe have to work together.  Just like in the first book, this is where the fun and trouble begins.

I actually think I liked this one even more than the first now that the romance is heating up between Stephanie and Joe.  Stephanie is just plum full of fun!
