A first-reads giveaway win for me, The Elusive Mr. McCoy turned out to be a great summer read. I was intrigued from the first chapter when McCoy and Jason, a private investigator, have their first interaction in a coffee shop which ends in McCoy's aneurism and his multiple identities being discovered. I was surprised by all the focus on the family of the four main characters, Eric McCoy, wife #1 Kendra, wife #2 Lesley and Jason Cheddick, but I think it made this book that much more interesting. I think Baker did a great job with showing the evolution of the relationship between the wives after they discovered each other. And, the evolution of their feelings towards McCoy. The interspersed chapters on McCoy's childhood and adult secrets were key to humanizing him. It felt a little rushed to tie up the ending, though overall a good read.
