Three to get Deadly
Stephanie Plum, #3
by Janet Evanovich
Synopsis from Goodreads
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…
Stephanie Plum is amazing. In other books, I’ve considered her emotionally dysfunctional, but I take it all back over this one paragraph. (Loc. 3559 on Kindle)
There’s a limit to how far a woman can be pushed. I’d been gassed, attacked, stalked by masked men, lied to… swindled by my mechanic. And I’d stayed pretty damn calm through it all. Threatening my hamster brought out a whole new set of rules. Threatening my hamster made me Godzilla. I had no intentions of saying goodbye to my hamster.
Don’t get me wrong, Stephanie is a walking disaster who has no business being a bounty hunter, and in real life she would be a menace to society and dangerous, but in literature she’s amazing.
