"Three to Get Deadly" My Thoughts
Stephanie Plum, the brassy babe in the powder blue Buick, is back, and she's having a bad hair day - for the whole month of January. For starters, she's been given the unpopular task of finding Mo Bedemier - one of the burg's most beloved figures, who unfortunately was caught carrying concealed. Steph's job is to haul this revered person back to the lock-up and collect her share of the bounty. But Mo seems to have skipped town. His car is gone, his ice cream store is deserted, and his neighbors aren't talking, certainly not to Stephanie.
Trenton homicide cop and local hunk Joe Morelli is keeping his distance. The last time he got social with Stephanie he ended up naked in the middle of the street. But Stephanie's not one to say no to a challenge, whether she's after a Mo or a Morelli....With lots of help from former "ho" turned file clerk, Lula, and the occasional assist from the ultimate of bounty hunters, Ranger, Stephanie packs her pepper spray and takes off in pursuit of the elusive purveyor of sweets.
"Three to Get Deadly" is fast, fun, fabulous entertainment from one of the hottest rising stars in the crime-writing world.
I have read a few of Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum, bounty hunter numbered mysteries. I haven't read them in order, and I haven't read all of them, I think she wrote Number 19 recently. I don't think they have to be read in order each one is a stand alone book in itself. I find that if you have read one of the books of this series, they all follow the same premise. In the end she always gets her man, but a lot of mayhem goes on in between getting her man and turning him over to the police. And then there are Joe Morelli, and Ranger, and a few other characters that are always on board to keep the story moving along.
This month I think I will be listening to some of my audio books. A friend has asked me to crochet her a blanket or as I call them afghans. She has moved into a new home, and would like a new blanket to cuddle in while watching TV and reading. So I decided to combine my two favorite hobbies, reading and crocheting, only my reading will have to be listening to books until the afghan is finished.
I enjoyed this book and awarded it 3***, it is a part of my personal audio book library.
It will also help me out in my "Mount TBR Reading Challenge."
