My least favorite part of this book is that it concludes the Jersery Barnes series. The initial appeal of this series for me was the setting - the North Carolina coast. I don't tend to be a mysteries fan, but I'll give most anything set in the modern day south half a chance. A silly reason for reading a book? Maybe.

I was drawn in from page one. Hook line and sinker. Jersey Barnes is a sassy, sexy, witty ex-military private security specialist. She's tomboy while still being feminine and sexy. A

#3 Jersey Barnes series set in Wilmington, NC. Ox and Lindsay are away and Jersey must utilize the help of Brad, a DEA agent, to stop a drug ring and help three doctors and a restaurant owner. As usual, the exploits of Spud, Jersey's father, are comic relief. This is a quick read mystery with little depth. Again, this is like Janet Evanovich without the nasty language and constant sex. A great way to spend an afternoon.

Jersey Barnes is a smart, gutsy broad and her cast of supporting characters are endearing. This is less of a who-dun-it than a how-do-we catch-him. An entertaining read.
