Angie is a little too much to take sometimes, but the other characters in the book make up for her. The mystery is solid and Joanne Pence keeps you quickly turning the pages with her writing style. She offers humor and excitement from the 1st page to the last. Though I wish she would tone Angie down a little to make her less irritating, Paavo keeps getting better and better and the other supporting characters seem to be further developed with each book making them seem like real people. Joanne Pence is definitely an author I would still buy in hardback. The enjoyment she offers would be worth the hardback cost.
