Book 61: Three to Get Deadly by Janet Evanovich

Classic Stephanie Plum - this is my first time reding through this series and I am loving it. I love laughing at Stephanie and Lula's crazy antics in this one. I missed Grandma Mazur in this one since she was really in Two for the Dough, but when she was there, she was funny.

Stephanie is hot on the trail of one of Trenton's favorite uncles. Uncle Moe who owns the town candy store. In this one she fights against people out to protect Moe, one of her former teachers, her new truck, her hairdresser and of course Joe Morelli. As things start to unravel it gets even crazier. Just a fun read and C.J. Critt does a wonderful job on the audio - I love her different voices and the accents are great.

Fun, fun, fun is what you get when reading this book and I'm looking forward to reading more about Stephanie Plum, Lula, Grandma Mazur, Morelli and Ranger.

Book 60: Swimming with the Dead by Kathy Brandt

Hannah Sampson is a detective on the Denver police force and she is also a search and rescue diver. Due to her diving knowledge and her reputation for never giving up on a case, the police commissioner asks Hannah to investigate his son's death in the British Virgin Islands.

So Hannah heads down there reluctantly and falls in love with the area, but it seems someone doesn't like her digging. As she begins to investigate, everyone seems guilty even the guy she starts to fall for.

Lots of local color of the island and plenty of people to make you wonder who exactly did it. Fun book to read and get to know Hannah. I look forward to more books in this series.
