My Review: Three to Get Deadly by Janet Evanovich
Stephanie Plum is fast becoming my favourite heroine of all time. Janet Evanovich has created a winning formula. The recipe for these books is as sweet as Grandma’s warmly baked apple pie, and as satisfying as the ice cream melting atop it.
The ingredients are a (don’t) wanna be bounty hunter, who has a sense of humour and an appetite that she attaches more value to than her body image (refreshing, these days), lots of action, car chases with run-down and later blown up cars, Grandma Mazur and the rest of the delinquent, yet delightful Plums and the ever dashing Joe Morelli.
And then there are moments when I laugh out loud, and my husband groans, because he knows I am about to start reading aloud. Really, that’s what makes these books – they’re so funny.
I think every so often I should crack open another Stephanie Plum – and there do seem to be plenty of them - to restore my faith in the power of humor and a well told story.
For another fun read, try Ms Conception by Pamela Power
