This was over all a really fun read. It was fast paced and and funny. Despite being a YA book the stakes felt sufficiently high, although the characters didn’t much talk or act like 16 year olds….which I didn’t really mind since I’m well out of that demographic anyway, but it was noticeable. The character development kinda went back and forth and left me feeling like neither of the main characters gained a lot of personal growth, but this is part of a series so perhaps I’m being too hard on it there. There was a dash of romance. It didn’t pull focus from the rest of the plot nor did it feel like insta-love. The mystery wasn’t the strongest part in my opinion. It just kinda felt like an average episode of Psych. But it was fun and I will probably read the next book and other things by this author.
