Recommended Age: Adult
I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.
This one was a little faster than the first, and it hooks you in and takes you along for the ride. And quite the ride this one is. Around the world in 80days has nothing on the geography Kate and Nick seem to cover in this book. Kate is really starting to grow on me. She's not a blundering fool, but has her faults and her strengths. I love her loyalty and dedication to what's right. I find her a good ying to Nick's yang, they make good partners. I'm not really feeling the sexual tension between Kate and Nick, but that's not what I'm reading the series for anyway so the lack doesn't change much. I love Kate's father, one of my favorite characters. Willie's a fun character I hope we keep seeing more of. I'm on the fence about Nick right now. I like the humor and the dad jokes. I love how a book can be funny and not filled with language and sex to remind its audience how its geared toward adults. I found myself laughing out loud like many Evanovich favorites, however it was much more mellow than the Plum novels. I'm hoping to get more depth to Nick in the future. This adventure was complete with rocket launcher and crap getting blown up. Definitely a series I will be continuing with.
