This was basically fun fluff and McGuire's signature brand of snark. Annie gets a job in an amusement park I what I can only assume must have been an excuse for the author to spend lots of write-off time at Disney parks. The behind the scenes angle was pretty cool even though it got a little repetitive. Her antagonists had a sound concept, even though none of them was ever really developed as a character.

I enjoyed Tricks for Free in audio, but I liked the Carnival setting of the previous book better than the behind the scenes amusement park setting of this one though, and I really missed the mice - sacrilege to have a Price with no Aeslyn mice.
