The book plot is well covered in other customer reviews so I won't repeat. I bought both Bait and Hook based on customer reviews and am thrilled to have found another great series. Meg is not perfect and, therefore, C. J. Songer provides us with a believable character, not only in Meg's actions, but in her relationships with her partner Mike, stepson Josh and the new man in her life Reilly. There's no lagging in the storyline and you race along with Meg to the believeable conclusion. Unfortunately, per C.J.'s website, we have to wait until 2003 for the third installment.
