There're gangs and a hitman in this installment. All gunning for my gal Steph. She witnesses in a bike-by bombing - of her own car, as it turns out - and the guilty party isn't happy about it. So Steph hides out while trying to keep up with her FTAs, trying on dresses for Valerie's wedding, and dieting. The body count's reasonable (for Stephanie), till Sally drives his school bus through a bunch of gang members who're trying to beat Stephanie up. Figures. With a cop and an ex-Special Forces dude on her side, it's the 7-foot-tall cross-dressing perpetually-cussing school-bus-driver who comes to the rescue.

Family: Valerie & Albert are getting married. Sally Sweet (from Four to Score) is roped into the position of wedding planner. And Steph finds Valerie a nice place to rent so that she can get her apartment back.

Wheels: Well, the sunny yellow Escort makes it to page 5, where it's, you guessed it, blown up. She buys a purple Lincoln that gets riddled with bullet holes. The Buick (still thinking of a replacement nickname for the tank) gets graffiti'd. At least she didn't toast any of Ranger's vehicles this time...

Action: Stephanie moves out of Morelli's place, and hides out at Ranger's, while he's out of town. There's no hanky-panky (even when he's back in town), but Ranger does drop a qualified "three little words". And she finds out she's a line item in his budget.

I can't believe I'm on #10 already, it seems like it was just yesterday that I picked up One for the Money. 6 more to go (includes to two "little" ones) - I hope they're as good as these have been. =)
