This was rated in the context of fun entertainment value.
As my significant other had a major surgery, I was with a good deal of time on my hands and wanting to read something light and enjoyable that kept me engaged...but easy to take a brake from for my car giving commitments.
I've read the Stephanie Plum series and really enjoyed them. I have also enjoyed the Monk series. So this series seemed a good choice.
The Fox and O'hare series was perfect. They're action packed with a sprinkling of romance and humor, a strong female character and fun twists and turns. My favorite is by far the Chase. I had a hard time putting it down! I highly recommend them.
