I hit the 80% milestone on NetGalley and then did the obvious self destruct thing of requesting more!!
This book reminded me of Investigation, Mediation, Vindication (The Many Travails of John Smith, #1) by Chris Tullbane!
Once in a while, when I am in the mood for something wacky, I pick up a book with a blurb like this. Usually, the strange storyline is accompanied by intentionally funny writing that enhances the oddities in the scenarios. This feature existed in this book, as well. I flew through it in one sitting.
Our leading lady is in hiding, and over the course of the book, she lets us into her past and shows the reader all the things that are at stake for her. For day-to-day needs, she finds herself a job which comes with strange allusions to the workings of Suite #45. She tries to get out of the situation multiple times but digs herself further into the chaos that reigns around the job. I liked the writing, the pacing but the story itself left me wanting more. I should have been better invested in the mental and physical well-being of the characters given how well I was getting on with the reading. There are a lot of action scenes with guns blazing and other such instances. I would recommend picking it up if one is on the lookout for a quick read. Some of the topics handled were not as light as the rest of the book and, although they formed the backbone of the story, it did not jar the tone of the story.
I received an ARC thanks to NetGalley and the publishers, and the review is entirely based on my own reading experience.
