Dirty Laundry - Tori Carrington I grabbed this book from the tbr pile this morning and started it this afternoon because I wanted something light and fun.

After reading about 1/3 it appears this book is a ripoff of the Stephanie Plum books. The tone is tongue in cheek, the heroine is a Greek girl who, after catching her husband-to-be with the maid of honor on her wedding day, is now a PI wanna-be and she has a huge crush on a sexy Australian bounty hunter. If you've read the Stephanie Plum books this will all sound painfully familiar. In comparison (and how could one not make the comparison?) this one lacks. There is a lot of talk about Greek food and a few somewhat quirky characters but there is no Grandma Mazer here, just an old bat who wants to cook a dog and gives people the "evil eye" and it's all a bit bland. Man, now I'm feeling even grouchier.

Later: I finished and won't say it was a chore. The writing is light and breezy and it's truly a mindless read which is what I needed to distract me from thinking on a few things. Come tomorrow I doubt I'll remember any details about it however . . .
