What is it about?

Dahlia Moss is studying to be a private detective. She is still recovering from a concussion when she gets asked to go under cover at an app game writing company in order to investigate how they are so far behind deadline.

This is book 3 in the Dahlia Moss series, but you do not have to have read the previous installments for this book to make sense. Everyone including Dahlia gets an introduction.

Was it good?

The story itself was interesting, although at its climax it had crossed the line to silly. This is a pretty quick-moving mystery with lots of zany characters,  and the book itself was quick to read.

There really isn’t any character development, and no life lessons learned. This book is meant to be fun to read. It didn’t make me laugh out loud, but it did amuse me.

Side note:  I am concerned by the fact that I received an ARC from the publisher (in exchange for an honest review) the week AFTER the anticipated publish date, and it was just riddled with errors. I’m talking about errors on nearly every page, and none of the “flow charts” or pictures were in the document. I tried not to let this impact my review but I hope the actual published version is more edited and complete.
