Occasionally I enjoy a funny series. I work outside a great deal and books with twist and turns become an arduous undertaking. Julie Moffett's series has provided a few "laugh out loud" moments. However, No Biz Like Showbiz, is not a book I would recommend. <br/>I do not like the characters. I do not like the development of the story line. I knew very quickly where the story was going. <br/><br/>Writing books, writing a series of successful books is undoubtedly difficult to do. I am respectful of the author. Nevertheless, I would skip this one. Your listening library will thank you.

I was skeptical at first because there were a lot of negative reviews and encouragement to skip this book. In this one she sets out on her own and there was less interaction with the supporting characters we've met along the way. It does get annoying her complaints about interacting with others and wanting to give up but I read it more as frustration that her continuing was putting these guys she was interacting with in the spotlight in a negative way mixed with the lingering effects of being a geek in a non-geek world. She's always gone on about not having social skills and being on her own in this novel sets her up for maturing and being a grown up between learning to interact with others, determining what she wants in a guy (I'm still holding out for her to pick the guy whom I think fits that bill to a T!) and even making decisions about her romantic life. I sincerely hope she doesn't revert in the future but that this novel sets her up to show her growth in these ways in future novels. Points off for it seemingly dragging out at some points and my trying to remember when last any forward movement regarding the case had happened, Basia's lengthy monologue pep talk and that annoying Italian accent. I'm going to ride it out until he's written out of the series bc I'm convinced he's not the guy for her and am holding my breath until she and the right guy figure things out. Otherwise, good listen!
