I didn't actually have a love affair with Janet Evanovich. It's an expression! Get your minds out of the gutter for Christ's sake!
Anyway, One For The Money is coming out and I suppose it's the female equivalent to Lord of the Rings finally being made into a movie. At least for me. This book is my Frodo.
When I packed my hospital bag, to deliver my second daughter, I thought I would have some extra time sitting in my little room at some point so I packed Evanovich. I'd already read them all, twice, and thought it was light enough but funny enough that it would make the time pass.
Guess what? When you have been ripped a new one by a 9lb baby the last thing in the world you want is to laugh. It hurts.
But, you know, I'm worried-- the clowns they casted do NOT seem hot. That's not MY Joe and certainly not the way I envision Ranger. And Heigl...the jury is out. But the jury is suspicious. The jury is giving Katy the Stink Eye cause we know she's guilty of murdering Stephanie Plum.
My favorite bit of all time was when Lula goes on the Atkins Diet and gets chased by dogs down the street because she has a purse full of bacon. That was freaking hysterical.
My biggest complaint is that I really wish she'd have more sex in her books. I hate hearing that something or other 'zipped to her doo-dah' and then it fades to black. Even Grandma Mazur would write something steamier than that!
Anyway, are you excited about it? What do you think of the casting? More importantly, what's your favorite Plum moment?
