My first Evanovich book outside of the wonderful Stephanie Plum series. I wasn't sure that I would like this, I like Plum too much, but this was just as good, wacky & very funny in places. Here we follow the life, misfortune and determination of Alexandra Barnaby, whose brother has disappeared, along with a boat that he doesn't own. His flat has been turned over, not once but twice. Barnaby is determined to find & protect her little brother. She meets Hooker, who is perhaps as full on as Morelli & Ranger. I look forward to meeting the characters again next time.
