This was not one of my favorites. It had humor, romance and mystery. It felt like there was almost TOO much going on and I couldn't keep track. The Jail scene was off the chain in a bad way. I understand the author was trying to be funny but it bordered on the ridiculous. Nicks and Phem's secondary romance felt like it was just thrown in there. I guess maybe I needed to read the first 3 books in the series but because I hadn't a lot of the scenes were over the top confusing.
