Three to Get Deadly (Stephanie Plum #3)
Stephanie Plum. Bounty hunter.
I checked my pocketbook to make sure I had the essentials…beeper, tissues, hair spray, flashlight, cuffs, lipstick, gun with bullets, recharged cell phone, recharged stun gun, hairbrush, gum, pepper spray nail file. Was I a kick-ass bounty hunter, or what?
That about sums her up. She’s hilarious. She’s brave and bold. She’s a woman on the edge. I don’t know who should be more frightened, Joe Morelli or...more
Ugh, sorry to be a "negative-Nancy", but am I the only the that doesn't laugh-out-loud at these books? Lula gets on my nerves (even though she's a sweetheart,) and Stephanie has the "oops! hehe" sense of humor that just always seems to be getting her in trouble. Don't get me wrong, I love readin...more
Je suis particulièrement fan de la Buick 1953, du duo formé avec Lula, des courses-poursuites qui virent au ridicule (le coup du cadavre qui tombe sur leur voiture, puis du corps fourgué dans le coffre avec un foulard autour du pied en guise de fanion ... ha ! ha !), du mystère Ranger, de son potentiel de super-héros, même si je fonds pour le charme canaille de Morelli, sa...more
Lula's character development was good and Lula also provided most of the humour in the b...more
With irrepressible former hooker Lula riding along as bounty-hunter-in-training, Stephanie has her hands full. Uncle Mo's reputation is so high she find doors slammed in her face and dead ends wherever she looks - not to mention all the gossip filtering through the phone lines to he...more
The story here is that Stephanie is looking for Mo Bedermeyer, local candystore owner and generally loved by the com...more
This book is another Stephanie Plum book and, like the rest, is very entertaining and well written. Stephanie is the world's worst bounty hunter who lives in NJ. She solves her dilemmas not by reasoning but by totally bumbling into solving them.
Some of the characters in these books stretch credibility but if you accept these books for the comical r...more
This time the friendly and beloved neighborhood candy store owner, affectionately known as “Uncle Mo”, has failed to appear at his court date. He was arrested for carrying a concealed weapon, which apparently is so common in the area that it is a law most everybody ignores. And the people in the neighborhood are not about to help Stephanie bring in Uncle Mo in any way, shape, or form. -This rings true to real life. Some people are so loved by the local mass...more
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
I feel that the main plot question that is always on Janet's mind is, "how can I get Stephanie into even more trouble than she's already in?" I think it is a very good que...more
Stephanie Plum is at it again in "Three to Get Deadly," as the neophyte bounty hunter. This time she is after Mo (Moses Bedemier), the man who owns the candy store and whom everyone loves. When Mo is arrested for carrying a concealed weapon and doesn’t show up for his court date, Stephanie is on the case. The problem is that no one wants to help her because they all love Mo and can’t believe he’d ever be involved in any wrongdoing.
Dead bodies of drug dealers begin to appear, especially those bur...more

My review: I feel like I zipped right through this audio book and I guess I kind of did. I couldn’t help myself; I was so enticed with the story line, I had to stay up past my normal “old lady” bed time and listen. I managed to drag myself to work the next day and kick myself for staying up too late. Then, that night I’d do it all over again just to see what kind of mess Stephanie would get herself into.

Not even Stephanie should be able to screw up her latest FTA, an old man who runs a candy store. What could be less threatening or dangerous, well, maybe a grizzly bear. Uncle Mo is loved by everyone in the Burg and because Stephanie is out to bring him in, everyone hates her. Mo's crime, carrying a concealed weapon, but he has...more
