So, the cover of this book was off-putting to me. It looks serious. The title sounds serious. I don’t like heavy outer space books. But this one was short and came highly recommended so I tried it. I am now on the third in the series and am going to move on to her fantasy books. The stories are light and funny adventures with a lot of sarcasm. They make for great short escapes, and feel more like cozy murder mysteries to me than space operas, except for the robots and IA’s and such.
