Three to get Deadly by Janet Evanovich

This series just keeps getting more and more hilarious.

In the third installment of Stephanie Plum's misadventures as a bounty hunter, she acquires a new sidekick, her pal Lula - a 200+ lb ex-whore turned file clerk at the bail bonding agency. Lula's big ambition is to become a bounty hunter herself, and she seems to be under the impression that Stephanie knows what she's doing and could teach her a few tricks of the trade. The problems that beset Stephanie and Lula as they pursue Mo, the beloved owner of a local candy shop who skipped bail, sound serious (ie, discovery of multiple corpses, death threats, being shot at multiple times) but they had me laughing so hard that I got the hiccups.

I don't want to give away the story, but be assured that if you pick this one up, you'll get more of the same things that made the first two books so great. Family dynamics, romance, thrills, and the defence of an innocent hamster's life - it's all here.
