    Another enjoyable read

    Ms Wong has an easy writing style which I enjoy. I like her main character better with each book. She's a tough lady in a world dominated by men, but she refuses to back down. She will find the answers no matter the personal cost, or the painful. Well done, looking forward to reading the third book in the series.

    A Great Read Full of Surprises

    If you like smart female characters who don't rely on a man for their strength or intelligence, you'll love Lola Starke, SG Wong's captivating protagonist. Lola isn't perfect (fortunately), but she's clever and gutsy. Add a cast of interesting people and you've got the start of a really enjoyable book. But Wong doesn't stop at the cast of characters. Crescent City has been so vividly described that I can picture parts of it as I read. I think I could happily live in this beach city. The story is set in the 30s, but Wong's research allows her to seamlessly bring in just enough cant to be believable, but not so much that it's irritating to read. But the biggest player in this book after Lola is the traditional Chinese lore that Wong weaves into the story, which is integral to the plot. Speaking of plot, this one moves deliciously from one point to the next - you'll have a hard time putting the book down until you know how it works out. However, to get the most out of In For a Pound, I highly recommend that you read SG Wong's previous novel, Die on Your Feet. I hadn't read it and felt like I was struggling to stay afloat at first. It took until about 80 pages in for me to really begin to understand the relationships between the characters. But it was worth the struggle. Disclosure: SG Wong is a friend, but didn't ask me to write a review.
