Good Read

I bought this book because I'm from Texas, and I haven't read too many books based on large cities in TX. This was pretty good. There were some times in the book that I couldn't help but think that the story should be wrapped up, but, overall, it was good. The characters were interesting and funny and the plot was realistic. It's not a perfect book. I am forever cured of saying "Aw man" after I heard the character Raul say it with every line. But Green made up for it by allowing real life and consequences catch up to Dallas. I won't say more because I don't want to ruin the story. Of course by the end, the mystery has been solved and evryone is basically happy. This was a good read and I plan to read the next two in the series.

Fun for Dallasites

I have to state up front, I live in the DFW area and have a degree in fashion design. Liking this book, I am sure, has less to do with plot and more to do with pondering similarities of some of the characters to actual people/companies and imagining those people and businesses in the book. Also, it was fun because I knew exactly where the characters were most of the time, i.e. stuck in traffic on 75 or going up and down the steep hills at Fossil Rim.

I liked Dallas. She is that perfect blend of airhead and genius. But I was disappointed in the choice of narrator. She definitely is not from Texas. This isn't a suspenseful or serious mystery. It has more in common with Shopaholic than Dave Robicheaux, but I liked Dallas better than Shopaholic. The story's conclusion had some flaws but nothing that ruined the book for me.
