Book Review: One of the Girls by Lucy Clarke

One of the Girls by Lucy Clarke opens with six friends arriving in Greece to celebrate an upcoming wedding. Each one of the women have a secret, and one of them is determined to make sure the wedding doesn't happen. And, one of them ends up dead. Thank you to NetGalley, Penguin Group Putnam, and G.P. Putnam's Sons for a digital Advanced Readers Copy (ARC) of One of the Girls by Lucy Clarke. I was ecstatic to be selected to read this book in exchange for my honest review. Wow! I'm at a loss of what to say about One of the Girls because it was that fantastic. Fun. Engrossing. Well Written. Unputdownable. These are just a few words I'd use to describe this novel.  There were red herrings galore. With that being said, I had my suspicions that the "killer" was one of two people, and one of them ended up being the killer, so I was happy with my deduction.

Book Review: Three to Get Deadly (Stephanie Plum, #3) by Janet Evanovich

Stephanie Plum is at it again in Three to Get Deadly (Stephanie Plum, #3) by Janet Evanovich. Stephanie has been having a bad hair day for a month and is driving a powder blue Buick. Her latest skip that Stephanie has to apprehend is Trenton's adored ice cream shop owner Mo Bedemier, who was arrested for carrying a concealed gun and missed his court date. To top it off, Vinny's file clerk, former hooker Lula, now wants to be a bounty hunter and assist Stephanie.

As in the previous two installments, One for the Money (Stephanie Plum, #1) and Two for the Dough (Stephanie Plum, #2), Stephanie Plum is a terrible bounty hunter. It's amazing that she stays employed, but I guess it helps that her cousin, Vincent "Vinny" Plum is her boss. I did enjoy that Stephanie's ex-husband made an appearance in Three to Get Deadly. It made the book more interesting.

What I detested was the exercise routine Stephanie started with Ranger because she had gained a few pounds. It's just so uncharacteristic for her, and it just felt like it was put in for filler. I have to say that this installment was one of my least favorite in the series, so much so that I almost didn't continue reading past this one. I gave it three out of five stars.
