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. . . .
After Book 1 & 2, I expect 3 to be eventful but to my disappointment it was mostly chasing after this new adventuire's FTA, Uncle Mo, who happens to be loved by the people in the burg. he sells candy to kids and is revered as a saint, which is ridiculous even after Stephanie already explained that he jumped bail.
Morelli was acting distant too and for a minute there Stepahnie thought he found himself a girlfriend. I did love the Lula and her crazy ideas and stereotype talk was all over most chapters in this book. It proved to be entertaining. I was thinking she's be the next Grandma Mazur, but it turned out she was just all tough talk and seems to disappear when she hear sirens. I also got a glimpse of the Stephanie's ex-husband, Dickie Orr but at this point I cannot really tell is he is a tough lawyer or mostly a coward. Hard to say, I mean Lula played the mean and scary black girl and was talking about shooting and beating him up. The ending offered a surprising twist, for some reason I did not see that coming even when clues where left here and there. I am going to wrap this up because book 4 sounds exciting.
