The B-Team: The Case of the Angry First Wife by Melodie Campbell

3 short stars 🌟🌟🌟


Del’s great-aunt, Kitty, has retired from a life of crime and embarked on a new venture, the B-Team. Although Del works at an animal shelter by day, by night she, her great-aunt and their cohorts, Dino and Ritz, use their criminal skills to right wrongs. In this fun book, the modern-day Robin Hoods set out to return a necklace to its rightful owner but along the way discover they’ve been duped by an impostor who also wants to get her hands on the necklace. The problem is, criminals can’t go to the police, even if they are on the side of the good. Del comes up with a new plan, and the B-Team saves the day. Not without a few detours along the way.


I guess this is classified as a rapid read and indeed it was that…. and while I would have really appreciated this in high school and college as assigned reading… it made it hard to really get into…. hard for much character development when the book is this short….

I thought based on the title of this book it would be funny, unfortunately that wasn’t the case…. it was about Del a girl who works at an animal shelter by day and helps bring justice to those who have been wronged by night…. and oh yeah she has ties to the mob…. I really needed more angry first wife and less mob!

Del and her aunt really had potential to be interesting characters, but the book was too short for that…. The plot really didn’t draw me in either… I just felt as though a lot was thrown in, the animal shelter, the mob, the love interest…..

I’d recommend this if you want a really quick read, perhaps to pass the time in a doctors waiting room….

*** i’d like to thank the publisher and Net Galley for a copy of this book ***
