“I have read this one a couple times in the past. However, I wanted to pick up where I left off in the series but couldn't remember what happened, so I'm starting from the beginning again.
Stephanie is still a terrible bounty hunter. She has a couple FTA's in the book but still can't catch them in a timely manner. She enlists the help of Ranger to bring down Uncle Mo, a candy/ice cream shop owner who has a store in the Burg. Ranger takes it personally after Mo steals his Mercedes. Turns out Mo got involved in somethings that he couldn't get out of and was trying to get out but it snowballed into something more. Stephanie finally gets him, plus her other FTA's, however, she loses another car. Looks like she's back to driving the Buick again.”

“Re-read this (second or third time) because Life of Pi was making me want to stick a fork in my eye. And because...Ranger...that's why.
Pulled this off the keeper shelf and gave it another go-through because Stephanie Plum in the early days (approximately books 1-6) always makes my brain smile and my muse happy. My favorite SP novel is probably Four to Score, but Three to Get Deadly is good fun in the Plum tradition of hot love triangles, crazy old people, and the rest of the zany assortment of characters who populate the Burg.
This time around Stephanie's FTA (Failed to Appear) quarry is a beloved icon of Trenton, Moses (Mo) Bedemier. He's sort of like the local Willy Wonka, the candy store owner that EVERYONE loves. So when Stephanie takes on the case of finding the vanished Mo, who is on the lam following a weapons possession charge, she immediately becomes the town pariah.
Ranger is present as her laconic mentor; Morelli, the cop, does his thing as smoldering point in the love triangle. Grandma Mazur isn't as active in the story as she was in Two for the Dough, this time sticking with playing comic to Stephanie's long-suffering parents.
And of course...vehicles get blown up.
Fun, fun, fun!”
“I cannot stop reading these books! They're so funny and all the tension building up between Stephanie and Morelli is so good.....”Juliana C wrote this review Tuesday, February 19, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“I listened to the audio of this book, and I think that is the reason I didn't enjoy it was much as the other Janet Evonovich books I've read. The voices bothered me, and the only parts I held onto afterwards were Lula. The stand out character that always makes me laugh. ”Joi W wrote this review Monday, January 14, 2013.
