Little more hard-boiled
PLOT OR PREMISE:
This time around Plum's got a dandy assignment: pick up Uncle Mo, the owner of the local soda shop who everybody thinks is a saint. He got picked up for carrying a concealed weapon (which everybody says is no real crime at all) and promptly jumps bail for no apparent reason. She no sooner asks the first person about Mo's whereabouts, and lo and behold, her mom is getting complaints about her harassing poor Uncle Mo. Ah, life is just peachy. Add in a couple of vigilante types who keep warning her away from Mo, some more involvement with Jackie and Lulu (the hookers from book one), and life gets interesting.
WHAT I LIKED:
I liked the expansion of the various characters again. As well, its kind of fun to see the relationship develop between Joe and Stephanie, even if it is romance-by-the-book. :) The grandmother is less pronounced in this one but Lulu more than makes up for it as she wants to kick butt too. Ranger is definitely an interesting presence, and fun for everyone.
WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE:
This book is a little more hard-boiled, complete with lots of guns blazing, and some harder-core motives for stuff. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but it detracts a bit from the otherwise amusing antics of Stephanie as she is still learning the ropes about being a bounty-hunter.
I received no compensation, not even a free copy, in exchange for this review. I am not personal friends with the author, nor do I follow her on social media.
Silly hijinks in the search for missing uncle Mo. Fun read but I didn't care for the ending.
third book in the series. I laughed a couple of times. And, I did NOT figure out the plot twist, even at the end!
Very entertaining. Number 3 in the series, and number 3 for me. I still intend to read the entire series.
Another great Stephanie Plum mystery! Janet Evanovich never disappoints!
Another good book. Still funny. The series is starting to feel a little repetitive, though. Like you're reading the same book over and over with a different bad guy each time. I can't say I mind too much, though. I've already ordered the 4th.
After being an avid listener to the Stephanie Plum novels on tape, I thought I would try reading one for a change. The other deciding factor was that Lorelei King was not the voice on this title on the tape, and I love her rendition of all the characters! Everyone''s favorite uncle Mo, the candy store proprietor, has gone FTA and Stephanie has to bring him in. This should be easy, but Mo has done a real good job of making like a lemon drop and disappeared completely. And when the burg hears through the grapevine that Stephanie is out to pick him up for missing his court date on a minor charge, everyone is out to get Stephanie. This results in a very large list of suspects and a few too many bodies found in Mo''s cellar. Meanwhile, Joe Morelli starts getting a little too close to Stephanie in a way she doesn''t understand ? it looks like he just wants to be friends! Everything seems to throw Stephanie off kilter including her early morning runs with Ranger and Lula. How Stephanie exposes this network of crime and sets her new vehicle on fire is something that I?m not going to reveal. So kick back and enjoy the antics of the most madcap bounty hunter you will ever find!
