Some Like It Hot (Cat DeLuca Mysteries, #3)
Reading this series is like eating vanilla ice cream; you take a bite, and it's great, but it's not perfect. So you take another bite, savouring it in your mouth this time, trying to figure out why you really like it but still don't love it. It has all the things you enjoy on a hot summer day but it just doesn't quite quench that craving. Then suddenly you have it, and you snap your fingers and say, "but it's not chocolate ice cream." The Cat Deluca Mystery series is a fun read, with a heroine who gets the villain with the help of 2 superhero men who love her, the support of her whacky family, and a lot of dumb luck...yes, this is Stephanie Plum 2.0... but it isn't. Which is actually a shame because K. J. Larsen has really GREAT plots, something which gets lost in the too-close comparison to that other series. The Cat Deluca stories are well written suspenseful mysteries, with snappy dialogue that works, but if you have read the SP series the similarities will knock you out of the story at inopportune times. With just a bit more thought, I truly believe K.J. Larsen could have given the Cat Deluca series a unique spin that might have knocked it out of the ballpark. That said, I'm still going to finish reading the rest of the series because who doesn't enjoy good ice cream?
