I really enjoyed reading the first book in this series, so I was very excited to get a chance to listen to book 2. I would recommend this to a friend, although the reader wasn't at all like I had in mind for Holly Anna. It took my enjoyment down a notch, but it was still an entertaining story.
Holly Anna is a great character. She's quirky, but has a good heart. She was really put in a difficult situation in this story. She wanted to be with those she loved, but was forced to choose between their safety and being with them.
The narrator's portrayal of Holly Anna came off as younger and not as smart and tough as I'd built her up in my mind from the first book in the series.
The mystery was good in Random Acts of Deceit, although I had my suspicions about who the bad guy was.
