I really enjoyed reading this book. The characters are amusing and the story is captivating. It moves along at a brisk pace and all the questions are tied up by the end. It is the perfect book for when you want a good relaxing read that doesn’t require too much thinking on your part. I give this book a solid 4 stars. Although it’s not a blockbuster, it does the job it was called to do quite well.
