I love this series & was devastated when Lee Goldberg announced he would no longer be writing them. The new author threw me for a bit – he openly admits he’s writing in his own style – not copying Lee’s, which I love! His spin is refreshing and he manages to keep the essence of Monk alive!
That said, this story is a typical Monk book, and honestly I can’t tell if I read them for the mystery, or just to step into Monk’s world to laugh at his fears, phobias and irrational ideas.
A great book full of laughs, but not silly! The story line is as always engaging & the characters are well developed and likeable.
