I listened to this on unabridged audio and thought it was a pretty enjoyable read. Not too dark and heavy and the characters were likable and interesting enough to hold my attention. It has a Stephanie Plum-like feel to it but it's a little more closer to reality than the Evanovich books. It has some nicely done but not over the top humor, a bit of romance and a mystery plot that kept me guessing. Definitely one one of the better books I've read this year.
