Adult | Mystery
What adult lacks even basic commons sense. Who would really do the things she does? Leaving purposeful and obvious evidence of a break in, make out with one of your abductors, think you can solve some conjecture based scheme. All of it is just ridiculous. And Vicky who apparently doesn't like her womanly figure going through all the length to cultivate it. If she were really bugged wouldn't she dress it down not accentuate. And the "clues" she finds are just bogus. Like the "address" she finds, do people really not write in English anymore but draw out an address? The entire book is a farce, silly and complete nonsense.
Not the type of mystery I have dabbled in before. The entire "mystery" or quest began under the flimsiest of suspicion. If they weren't a bit crazy non of the investigation would have happened. Vicky only manages to not get killed and figure out the "mystery" with a heavy dollop of luck and good graces. It is more like she just stumbles around in the dark and perseveres stubbornly. Her romantic choices are daft.
There isn't that much mystery occurring. Early on I was certain who was the culprit I just didn't know why they would bother.
Not terribly funny but a complete romp. With a tinge of female bond thrown in. Mildly entertaining but not a solid read.
