I miss Lee Goldberg! This sixth installment did not do much for character development with the exception of Jake -- the king of distractions. He was my favorite character in this book. What a total BA! Anyway, in true Evanovich fashion there is lots of action, and quirky characters. Also loved the exotic locales -- sort of made me think of the challenges from the Amazing Race at times, too. Some have been annoyed by Cosmo, but I like him as a foil for Kate and Nick. If there is a #7 I will give it a chance.
