An interesting selection by my book club this month. I'd never heard of the author/series beforehand, so I went into this with no expectations. All in all, it was a fun, light, easy read. No heavy thinking required. The characters are well-defined and unique, which I enjoyed. I didn't enjoy the plot, though - the lead character seems to happen into peculiar situations as opposed to being an actual sleuth. Like, when someone writes a message in Russian in your lip pencil on a mirror, don't you run to a dictionary to figure out what the message is? Not Wollie. She sits and idles on it for 150 pages, which I find unbelievable - but a necessary mechanic to help the story drive to its conclusion. I've heard lots of comparisons between this series and Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum Series. I definitely see the likeness, but I'm not a fan of Plum at all, and probably won't be picking up any of the other books in this series, either.
