Three to get Deadly by Janet Evanovich

Genre:  Detective
Stephanie Plum Series, Book 3

Note:  If you haven't read the first book in this series, then my review might ruin it for you a little bit (although you won't know until you read the first one).  The books slightly build off each other, but the descriptions do well without revealing what happened in the previous book.

Description (taken from Janet Evanovich's website):
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 Bedemeir, 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 to lock up a crook in the trunk of her car.

Morelli, the New Jersey vice cop with the slow-burning smile that undermines a girl's strongest resolve is being polite. So what does that mean? Has he found a new love? Or is he manipulating Steph, using her in his police investigation, counting on her unmanageable curiosity and competitive Jersey attitude?
Once again, the entire One for the Money crew is in action, including Ranger and Grandma Mazur, searching for Mo, tripping down a trail littered with drug dealers, leading Stephanie to suspect Mo has traded his ice-cream scoop for a vigilante gun.

Cursed with a disastrous new hair color and an increasing sense that it's really time to get a new job, Stephanie spirals and tumbles through Three to Get Deadly with all the wisecracks and pace her fans have come to expect.

I have come to the conclusion that I absolutely love these books.  They make me laugh a lot.  I still want to see Stephanie and Morelli together, but I think their personalities will prevent that from occurring anytime in the near future (and by future, I mean the books' future - even though they've been written, I still need to read them).

If you haven't read these series, then I'd recommend all ladies read these books.  If you can handle a few cuss words and a Jersey attitude, then you'll love them.
