This series is a bit iffy for me. I didn't like the first book very much, LOVED the second and this one is a bit "Meh." It was good but it's definitely not going on my favorites list.
Every reader has their achilles heel. Mine happens to be shrill heroines. Michelle wasn't an overly bad case of shrill heroine-ness but she was definitely getting there. She was either yelling or crying--there was no middle ground with her. She was always in some form of hysterics and, while I may sympathize with her, I just can't handle the constant emotional outbursts of rage or sadness. I, quite honestly, did not have any clue what to do with her. It's odd because I thought I was going to really like her based on In Rides Trouble. Jake was a completely different story for me. I loved him in spite of his surferness. He was the perfect hero. He was kind, reliable and protective.
It is a very rare occasion when I can say that I liked a book even though I disliked one of the main characters. Usually that is a connection that I need to have. This is one of those rare occasions. I loved the action and mystery of the plot. I though Jake and Michelle worked well together in spite of my near dislike of Michelle. I did, however, notice that there was an abundance of crying in this book. Almost everyone shed tears at the drop of a hat. It kind of reminded me of the vomit escapades of the first book. It was much less disgusting though but it did get a little bit annoying. Stop crying!
Nevertheless, I am looking forward to the next book, Thrill Ride, because it is about my absolute favorite couple, Vanessa and Rock.
