“Ms. Peresta has a witty and engaging style that screams along in first person, ala Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum. It’s a bold, brassy style loaded with clever similes such as “My thoughts are frantic, like butterflies trapped in a jar,” and “Mornin’ Izzy!” Birdie sings, his smile blazing like blanched bones at high noon.”
