So, what I thoroughly enjoyed in the last book, Stars and Stripes, didn't really happen in this one. Stars and Stripes felt self contained, like an episode if you like. I loved it. All wrapped up in one book, having dealt with emotional, relationship things and scooby mystery all nice and tidy. This one felt like an endless ratcheting of tension and bleh. I think I much prefer the previous books format. More of that please! I'm picking up the next one with some trepidation.
