Book Review: Bad Things, Small Packages

Head colds are bad… but the contents of the memory card are worse.

Emily has planned a quiet, restful evening at home, hoping to ward off the sniffles that might make her miss work. But the microSD card Brent stashed on her car is making more trouble than either of them expected. Getting it out of Phoenix and to the decryption genius before it self-destructs is going to take both of them.

But someone is after them and the card, and Emily discovers an eerie connection to her first accidental mission. To make matters worse, ICS is in danger and someone’s looking for Emily. 

It’s going to be a long night.” (from Goodreads)

FTC DISCLOSURE: I received a complimentary copy of this book. A positive review was not required. These are my honest thoughts and opinions.

Hello, my name is Inigo Montoya, I’m loving this summer, and this series is why. 

This book picked up right where the last one left off and things are seriously ramping up. More clues on who they’re up against and the revelation of a surprisingly clever plot. O.o. But, thanks to Brent and Emily’s roadtrip conversations, her headcold, and a certain microwave, this installment was just as real and hilarious as ever. XD I especially enjoyed the very uncliche hacker, and how Brent is definitely not from Arizona. 😛 (He needs help with his disguises. And maybe a warning about cactus.) Emily and he make a great team–what with his skills and her ordinaryness and noticing things. I loved how she was faking it on their way into headquarters. 😉 I think I’m gonna like this “Detective Frank”, though let’s hope Brent doesn’t get into too much trouble with her. 

Just a note, there was some mild peril. 😉

Best quotes: She slid into the driver’s seat and smirked. “You get into a lot of car chases, don’t you, Agent Nighthawk?” Deepening her voice to mimic Brent’s, she answered herself. “That’s movie stuff, Emily.” “Sure it is.”

Now do you have a fever?” “No, Brent, I just say absurd things because it’s who I am.” She gave him a cheesy grin.

Altogether, this was another great addition to the series, and I can’t wait for the next case. XD 

Also, don’t work with super tall spies if you’re really short. 😉

Series stats so far…
Codenames: eight
Car crashes: two?
Awesomeness level: 103%
