Troubel Maker 2 by Janet Evanovich & Alex Evanovich

About the book: There's no smooth sailing for Alex Barnaby and Sam Hooker in the second volume of bestselling author Janet Evanovich's graphic-novel adventure, Troublemaker. Barnaby, Hooker, Rosa, Felicia, and Beans the St. Bernard set sail to the Florida Keys in order to find the wooden body of Baron Samedi that matches their recently acquired - and stolen - wooden hand. But in the world of petro voodoo a hand for a hand and a Baron for a boat is fair play. When the Happy Hooker disappears from its mooring in the Keys, Barnaby and Hooker have to find a way back to Miami with the stolen body of Baron Samedi. Ransom notes for the Happy Hooker, a sack of snakes, and a ticked-off chicken, leave only one place safe enough to hide a body... Hooker's mom's house - a situation that makes the sack of snakes look like chump change.

My thoughts: Another fun romp through unbelievable events by Janet Evanovich's Barnaby and Hooker. The only problem with this one, as with the first one, is that it is too short. The illustrations were simple, colorful and funny. I enjoyed the novels (Motor Mouth and Metro Girl) so much that I had to read these. I'm glad I checked them out of the library, though.
