The reviews were all so positive that I decided to try the first book in the series. This book had all of the elements of a great, fun read...characters that captivate, laugh out loud humor, drama, and suspense. It's neither overboard nor lack lustre, it's solid and incredibly entertaining!!! I loved it! I read it in one day and have already started on the second book! This may just be a new favorite author for me. If it weren't for others that took the time to write reviews, I would've have never given it a try, I'm so grateful!
