After everything that happened in Beaumont, Jamie leaves town with Max to start on a new adventure. Ok, really she’s just going to track down the person who shot up her news office and made multiple attempts on Max’s and her lives. However, she has to somehow try not to kill Max during this little trip together.

This book was a little harder to get into than the first 2 books, but I think that might have just been me. Before the book even begins Jamie and Max have a fight and we don’t find out what happened until later in the book. I don’t particularly like books that do that. Once we get over the hissy fit, I started to enjoy the book more. I like how that character plays off of each other and the banter between them is quite enjoyable.

The plot of this book is heavily based on the prior book. I don’t feel like you could have stopped reading the series after the second book as it didn’t have an end. However, this book does end nicely. I like the book in a series to be connected but not dependant on each other like these 2 books were.

I love the characters that were introduced into the universe and how much feistier Jamie got in this book. She was already an enjoyable character, and I feel like she became even more so throughout this book. Max is still egotistical but the reader can see his emotions, even though he can have trouble showing them at times.

Overall, I enjoyed this book. I did listen to the audiobook so I enjoyed Lorelei King’s voice as always. I don’t know if I’m a bigger fangirl of Lorelei King or of Janet Evanovich.

Jamie is the owner of the Beaumont gazette and she has her entire life figured out, or so she thought. When her silent partner shows ups one day and weird things started to happen, then she watches her entire plan fall to pieces. 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.

After Simon Diggery, Trenton’s grave robber, claims to have dug up a zombie portal, he asks Stephanie to take care of Ethal. However, when headless bodies start to show up around Trenton, Zombies seem like a plausible explanation. With Diesel back in town, and Morelli pulling the case, Stephanie finds herself stuck in the middle of the entire mystery.

I was so happy when I saw that this book was ready for me to listen to list on Audible. Lorelei King did an excellent job like always.

Seeing Diesel in a non-in-between the numbers book. It was really fun to see him again. Ranger was a little more relaxed in this book which I enjoyed, I mean he actually laughs multiple times in this book. Morelli was pretty much the same as he always is, however, I felt like he was a little more relaxed in this book.

Since Diesel was in it this book, we all know that there was some type of supernatural-esque occurrences throughout the book. We get to have zombies in this book, well not real zombies, but that was a very interesting storyline. Of course, one of Steph’s skips decides to become part of the whole thing.

Morelli and Ranger seem to be able to work together in this book, along with Diesel. Stephanie is a careless as always which leaves the men in her life to clean up after her.

I really really enjoyed this book like I always so. I enjoyed the chemistry between Ranger and Stephanie like always. Also Lorelei King was perfect like always.
