I read the first book in the series and enjoyed it tremendously. When the second came out, I obtained a copy as soon as I could, and believe it or not, not only couldn't I finish it, I couldn't get past the first two chapters. Just too silly for me, I thought at the time.

Maybe I ought to try again. Thanks for the reminder!

I am reminded of the small-town bankers where I grew up. That was "back in the day," and they were a different breed of human at that time, I think. Well, some of them were. Of course, the big-time banker types are cut from a different cloth entirely ...
