Original review posted at A Date with a Book I don’t know why I have been so timid in reading this series. I had book #1 on my shelf for several years, haven’t read it, so when this was a free Kindle book I grabbed it. It wasn’t until I had started and a good portion through this that I found I did have book #1 on my Kindle as well. I was in a slump for reading and not sure what I was in the mood for, but this book definitely hit the spot. With its humor and wit, it had me laughing at every turn. This book was a quick read.Here are a few quick statement reviews summing up a few ideas I had: What a way to say I Love YouWhoa Old People!Wait a go Mr. Friskers!Diets can cause a lot of grief.Great characters and great story not only with just the crime solving, but personal levels as well. I very much enjoyed the humor and found myself laughing quite often. I thought the main character, Jack was very likeable and I identified with her well. I also liked her partner Herb who did at times get on my nerves as he rushed through his decisions. However, in the end I feel like he kind of redeemed himself. Excited to read the next book and find out more of his story.I would definitely match the level of enjoyment and humor with Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum, but definitely not similar stories. I would recommend this book to readers who enjoy a crime mystery book with a high dose of humor.
