Olivia Joules and the Overactive Imagination

Funny and entertaining light reading.
The characters are superficial, and it took a few chapters for Olivia to grow on me, but once some more depths had been added to her I enjoyed the book immensely.

This is like the suspense novels I used to read as a teenager, but even better because it's for girls: it has a main character you can actually sympathize with, lots of humor, action and hot romance.

Unfortunately, towards the end the book loses a bit of the humor and romance, so the big climax of the plot feels like an anti-climax.
