I have to admit I was always disappointed that Disappearing Nightly didn't have a sequel. So I was surprised and heartened when I discovered this had been written - even if it was four years later.
The book follows the heroine Esther Diamond as she negotiates the murky waters of showbiz and the magical side of the world she was introduced to in disappearing nightly. Esther is a very fun character - although she has the luck of Stephanie Plum and some of the humour, she is probably a bit more serious and dedicated. She certainly has clear personal goals (acting career), and is willing to work to get them.
The book runs a very good line between the humour and mystery. The main mystery is a strong point, with good motives and series of events. Add a dash of romance developing, quite a bit of danger, and some dashing characters and all in all it is a really good read. Looking forward to the next one.
