Two for the Dough by Janet Evanovich

The story picks up a few weeks after One for the Money ended. Stephanie Plum has started to settle into the life of the bounty hunter, but she's still learning from her mistakes, still being a total pain in the ass to the cop and fellow bounty hunter she's learning from, still being plagued by her overbearing mother and still having to look out for her crazy granny. Luckily (or not so luckily) for Stephanie, she's trying to bring in a man who is helping her do lots of learning from mistakes. Kenny Mancuso is showing increasing evidence of being totally insane... and he isn't shy to let Stephanie know that he's not too happy about her interest in his life and whereabouts. When body parts start showing up in unexpected places, and Kenny starts targeting Stephanie's loved ones, this case becomes just a little too personal. Look out, Kenny - you won't like Stephanie when she's angry...

This book had action, suspense, and way more laugh-out-loud moments than I usually get in a mystery novel. So far this series is proving to be thoroughly enjoyable... so much so that I'm passing up the other titles on my bookshelf to read the third installment next.
