With her best friend’s husband getting death threats and her working in such close proximity to Max is making her think twice about her quiet life.
Ok… I am an Evanovich fangirl. I have been reading her books for years. I have fond memories of my father listening to this book. That being said, this is the first time that I’ve actually listened to the audiobook start to finish.
Though I enjoyed the character’s mismatched characteristics, I did find that they didn’t expand on all of the characters fully. Jamie and Bennie had a great introduction. Frankie, Deedee and the wrestlers were in the previous book so they didn’t need anything more. But some of the key players, like Philip and Lamar, were very flat. Heck, the bad guys had more story than those two.
The story was funny and light. It didn’t have a fluid line, but given the bad guy of the story, it would have been odder if it made complete logical sense.
The audiobook does have weird musical transitions, but Lorelei King was excellent as always. I really enjoyed this book and would recommend it for a light read.
