A good read. Bit of a slow starter but I really enjoyed it in the end. I liked Angel's character. I'm looking forward to reading more from this author. 4*.

    Read just for the first chapter if nothing else. A quick coffee break read. Not tremendous but readable. I must admit that the opening pages were some of the best I've ever read. Who is this heartless killer? Had a chuckle when I read the explanation. She's drifted from job to job but is quite happy working at the florist shop were she can take her troublesome chihuahua.

She remembers him as the 'Boffin. Not as cool as Drake with his YouTube followers, his blue hair, and his panache for being 'down with the kids' . However the job is boring and someone has spoken her mother's smalls (okay they're not that small) off her washing line and set up a new YouTube with a man dancing in them. She cannot see the face but when her chihuahua gets dognapped she finally has an address. Can she get in without being spotted? Will she find out who is the washing line thief and get her dog back? Will she go back to the job she had at the florists?

    This was a fun short(ish) story featuring Angel Drake, who proves to be a fun character. It took a couple of pages to figure out what was actually happening (and that was intentional on the writer's part!) but once I'd worked it out it was a fun romp, with lively characters and situations.

Angel isn't exactly career-driven, so when her mother takes the opportunity to fix her up with a bank job she's a little wary, but when her mother's underwear starts going missing she is dragged into a mystery to solve.

    You had me at .... Mom’s underwear was stolen! Great story to introduce Angel Drake. The book is hilarious as we are dying to see who in the world is stealing Mom’s underwear and more importantly.... why??? The male leads are interesting and repulsive.... very entertaining reading. I can’t wait to read more in this series.

    This short story is a fun series of escapades of Angel Drake. It can serve as an introduction to the character who also appears in a full length book. It was an enjoyable romp and the character has great possibilities. Be aware that the last 8% of this is the first chapter of the next.

    Angel is a screw up. And seems to attract other screwed up people into her life. This makes for some unbelievably odd encounters. Don't take it too seriously! Angel is a screw up.
