i’ve put off reading anything that’s supposed to be funny since i threw the first janet evanovich book at the wall in frustration at the protagonist’s stupidity. i picked this up in the bookshop and chuckled at the first page though. after a couple of chapters sam jones seems like quite a character but she definitely doesn’t seem stupid. so i’m hoping we’ll get on.

we did get on. sam’s smart, not smart enough not to get caught up in investigating murders of course, but if she was that smart then there would be no book.
