really liked it

This was a fun read for me. Pru is a VERY imperfect main character who very much put me in the mind of older, crass PIs in old mystery novels and shows, but while similar she is also miles different. I like Beckett's twist on this; it is refreshing to read about characters along the LGBTQIA+ spectrum.

One of the things I really liked about this book was just how well Beckett was able to weave multiple characters and a crazy story line together so well. For the most part it worked, the next section mentions what didn't work so well, and I found myself reading about well developed characters who are human and flawed, and at a nice quick pace that kept the story moving.

A few of the scenes didn't work well for me and I think the last 1/8 of the book (except the last chapter) missed the mark a little. There are some parts that are very surreal and I found them to not fit with what I had experienced up to then. Don't get me wrong, it's still good; however, I found myself pulled out of the story and I had a bit of time suspending disbelief.

But this didn't make me enjoy the book any less and I will definitely pick up book 2. Maybe in a paperback this next time, the ebook experience just doesn't work for me as well, especially with books like this. I need to HOLD it.
