I liked this one a lot, although it got a bit weird at the end, with the porn movies and the drug dealer assassinations. Sometimes these books take way serious things not seriously at all and it's just a little . . . off-putting?
This time around, Stephanie Plum is tasked with bringing in neighborhood ice cream and candy vendor, Uncle Mo, who is universally beloved. He was caught carrying concealed, but it turns out to be so much more than that, of course. Aforementioned porn films and assassinated drug dealers, dead bodies buried beneath ice cream shops, and neighborhood vigilantes . . . and they don't want Stephanie to uncover their secrets. While all of this is going on, Stephanie and Joe Morelli grow closer and finally consummate their adult relationship, so that probably means something, although who knows with these two at this point. And Lula is working at Vinnie's now as a file clerk/bounty hunter in training. Lula is wacky.
Not much to complain about here. Three to Get Deadly was a fun read that doesn't tax your brain cells or ask too much of you, and it never pretends to be anything more.
