Book Review 4 of 5 stars to Three to Get Deadly, the third book in the "Stephanie Plum" mystery series written by Janet Evanovich. And if you love ice cream, you need to read this one. Evanovich gets in her stride in this series with this book, as she has a good, repeatable pattern and formula, but always throws a few surprises in. here's the scoop: I read A LOT.
Wait, I got it, a supper scary bounty hunter in crime torn Trenton, New Jersey!!! The home of Stephanie, Lula, Ranger (possibly also known as Batman), and Morrely. :-) For a long running mystery series with an emphasis on chick lit and romance, this is one which has earned, cemented, and endured its reputation and notoriety. Since it is a simple job, his apprehension is assigned to the newest bountyhunter - Stephanie Plum, a woman of mystery!!... See, and people say these books don't have real mystery in them, HA! Yep, if that doesn't make you want to read the book, you really need to chill!!! I hope you guys pick up the series to discover, or to remind yourself of why we read such light books - enjoy!!!
I dont know who should be more frightened, Joe Morelli or the criminals shes searching for. As the books continue, the inevitable character progression always fascinates me. I expect nothing less of the characters in the Stephanie Plum series. I always picture my momma as Mazur and me as Stephanie. I hear they got some live lookers coming to bingo. I love Grandma Mazur and look forward to reading more of her! My momma always says she wants to be Mazur or Lula. Wise ass, daring and sexy, Lula will force a smile upon your face even if youre fighting it. I want a triple-decker burger, Lula yelled at the box. He shows up a little in this book, and the verbal sparring matches between Stephanie and Dickie are priceless. I was called a fat cow by my ex-husband. And if that isnt enoughmy hair is ORANGE! I will most definitely recommend this book to anyone looking for a great night of laughter!
No one is interested in helping Stephanie lock up their favorite candy man. Three To Get Deadly also featured a record-high body count, and the return of everyones favorite former ho .
In this third book in the 'Stephanie Plum' series, the bounty hunter is looking for a beloved candy store owner. ***** When Trenton, New Jersey native Stephanie Plum lost her department store job, she became a bounty hunter for her cousin Vinnie. As Stephanie goes about her business she's either helped or hindered by her usual associates: Lula - a big black woman who was once a 'ho' but is now a file clerk/bounty hunter in training; Lula wears kooky clothes, drives a red Firebird, and carries a huge gun. There are a lot of laughs in this cozy mystery, including Stephanie's inadvertent orange hair; Lula's bounty hunter outfit (a leather duster and cowboy hat); a corpse protruding from Lula's Firebird; and more.
For me, they aren't books that I think about much after I am finished with them, just ones that I enjoy during the reading process :)
This was another light and fun instalment of the Stephanie Plum series. Unfortunately for Stephanie the whole neighbourhood loves local sweet shop owner Uncle Mo and are more interested in scolding her for harassing the poor guy than they are in helping her find him.
But(there is always a but) I am in a strange land under strange circumstances these days and Stephanie Plum has entered my life. I never read murder mysteries unless written by Carl Hiaasen. The inevitable day came when I found myself without a new book to read. You dont read the Stephanie Plum series for the plot necessarily, although some are clever. The Stephanie Plum series is an industry unto itself, but dont let this put you off from giving them a go.
