Title: Three to Get Deadly
Author: Janet Evanovich
Series: Stephanie Plum #03
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. She’s been given the unpopular task of finding Mo Bedemier Trenton’s most beloved citizen, arrested for carrying concealed, gone no-show for his court appearance. And to make matters worse, she’s got Lula, a former hooker turned file clerk – now a wannabe bounty hunter – at her side, sticking like glue. Lula’s big and blonde and black, and itching to get the chance to lock up a crook in the trunk of her car. Morelli, the New Jersey vice cop with the slow-burning smile that undermines a girl’s stronger resolve is being polite. So what does this mean? Has he found a new love? Or is he manipulating Steph, using her in his police investigation, counting on her unmanageable curiosity and competitive Jersey attitude? Once again, the entire One for the Money crew is in action, including Ranger and Grandma Mazur, searching for Mo, tripping down a trail littered with dead drug dealers, leading Stephanie to suspect Mo has traded his ice-cream scoop for a vigilante gun. Cursed with a disastrous new hair color and an increasing sense that it’s really time to get a new job, Stephanie spirals and tumbles through Three to Get Deadly with all the wisecracks and pace her fans have come to expect.
Book #51 was Three to Get Deadly, the third book in Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum series.
I really like these books. Which will be evident when you see how many of them I’m about to blog about. I’ve just been sucked in by the characters, from Stephanie, to Grandma Mazur, to Lula, to Ranger, to Joe, to Rex.
It doesn’t hurt that I’ve been dealing with house stress by hiding in books.
