Three to Get Deadly by Janet Evanovich


A “saintly” old candy store owner is on the lam - and bounty hunter extraordinaire Stephanie Plum is on the case. As the body count rises, Stephanie finds herself dealing with dead drug dealers and slippery fugitives on the chase of her life. And with the help of eccentric friends and family, Steph must see to it that this case doesn't end up being her last....

This is a classic story of people not always being like what they seem. Uncle Mo seemed like a stand-up citizen. A guy that everyone loved and an upstanding member of society that sold candy to children. When he is arrested for carrying concealed, Stephanie has to try to bring him in so they can collect the bond money. She keeps hitting a brick wall of nobody wanting to help her out because every loves Uncle Mo.

It was a fun book. There was a lot of action and craziness. I love the emergence of Lula as a big character. As if there weren’t enough comical characters to begin with, she bring even more of a comedic edge as she rolls up in her red Firebird.

I am really starting to like Ranger more as a character now as well. I never disliked him, but he was always just a background character. He and Stephanie have an interesting working relationship, and I like them working together.

As with the first two, the relationship between Stephanie and Morelli is teased throughout the book, I just wonder how long it will take before they are officially together, or whether they ever will be.

Now, Grandma Mazur is trying to find herself a boyfriend, so Stephanie’s parents’ house is even more interesting than ever before. Her family is hilarious and adds something unique to these books.
Altogether, this was a really good read. I can’t wait to read the next one.

5/5 Stars

Memorable Quotes: “I exchanged my flannel shirt for a Rangers jersey and zapped the television on. Probably I should make more phone calls, but the Rangers were playing and priorities were priorities.”

“Damn. What were the chances of two people breaking into Mo’s at the same time? I shook my head in disgust. Crime was getting out of hand in Trenton.”

“I’d decided at an early age to stop being embarrassed over my family. This is yet another advantage of living in Jersey. In Jersey everyone has the right to embarrass themselves with no reflection on anyone else.”

“’When a man’s got a nose like a penis he’s likely to do anything,’ Lula said. ‘It’s the sort of thing makes serial killers out of otherwise normal people.’”

“I knocked on the door and waited, wondering what sort of reception I’d get, praying Morelli was alone. If he had a woman with him I’d be so embarrassed I’d have to move to Florida.”
