Started out very promising -- especially enjoyed the complex and subtle examinations of race/gender/ethnicity.

Recommends it for: anyone who likes a good, fun time.
I love these books. April Woo and her mother, the Dragon Lady and hysterical in the way they interact. Her boyfriend, sexy Mike, the romantic Mexican police officer is wonderful. I believe these only come out in paperback with no fanfare, but they are a good read.

I enjoy this series for what it is. The Dragon Lady is a hoot.
