Three to Get Deadly - Janet Evanovich
I really enjoy reading Stephanie Plum's adventures. This is the third one I read as I'm making a point of reading them in order.
The truth is that at first I thought I wouldn't enjoy them as much as I do. After all their reality has little to do with mine - bounty hunters, italian families that seem to have come out of a Godfather movie, a definitely weird community where everyone pokes their noses in everyone else's business (well maybe that's not so weird)... but the truth is that I laugh out loud with Stephanie's outburts and the interesting (for lack of a better word) relationship she has with her friends and possible love interests.
In this book Plum goes after Uncle Mo, a well known member of the community who has failed to appear for a court hearing and now is nowhere to be found. The problem is that no one wants to help Stephanie find him and soon the bodies start piling up. And it seems Uncle Mo might not be just an innocent candy store owner.
The mystery was okay but I'm really into these books because of the hilarious dialogues and characters like Plum, Lula, Grandma Mazur, Morelli, Ranger, etc etc
I have nº 4 on top of the tbr pile (it's a BC bookring) and I'm looking forward to it. A B.
