Synopsis (from Goodreads): JJ Shultz is torn between two hot men. So what’s a girl to do? Prolong the decision and escape to Seattle, of course! Especially when sister Lori invites her to a fashion trade show. But their plans for a weekend of cocktails and sisterly bonding go south when Lori’s panties disappear from their hotel room. It’s not just any pair of unmentionables - it’s Lori’s only prototype for a new product she’s almost ready to reveal. Determined to find Lori’s treasured trunks, the sisters set out to track down the thief, with the help of some friends at home, a few quirky new acquaintances, and a cat who can’t stop himself from shedding all over the evidence.
This is basically a quick and fun read, and was exactly what it seems to be. Except that I was surprised to find it was one of the follow the fantasy type books. Because this was a quick and fun read, and because of the nature of the story, the following the fantasy format worked.
I didn't really buy into any of the various potential relationships in The Great Panty Caper but that was probably because they weren't central to the plot. JJ and Lori were definitely the main players and the protective relationship between the sisters took centre stage. This meant the potential romances were sidelined (which I didn't mind really!)
The mystery was an easy enough one to solve, especially as the story progressed, and I thought that it was resolved in a good way that left me feeling satisified. It had a relaxed feel to it and the focus was definitely on the humour of the situation.
This was a fun read, not that I expected any less from a Fenske book!
