Look, nobody gets hurt (much) in these books. The protagonist, Walker, has the usual special-ops bad-ass back story but he goes to great lengths not to hurt anybody, including the various thugs that invariably come after him. He has a steady string of beautiful and independent women more or less throw themselves at him but there are no awkward or hide-your-eyes sex scenes. Only one person gets murdered (as near as I can remember) in the whole series and that one is a bad guy and it happens off-stage.
Which is refreshing compared to the usual serial killer heroes.
Now listen, as literature goes this series gets less than a star. There is a bit of static in continuity from book to book, and the quotation marks are all over the place. Sometimes it is not clear who is speaking. The plots are...well, over the course of six books this guy Walker is continually stumbling into huge sums of money. Unlikely severance pay amounts, corporate bribes, then a free RV, which incidentally has half a million in gold hidden inside, later he buys his first ever lottery ticket and it wins, then on a fling he goes off to the Treasure Coast for some incongruous beach combing and on the first day finds highly valuable Spanish Treasure.
Like I said, harmless fun for a book to carry along to the beach or otherwise killing time in a waiting room. I don't mean to back stab the author and don't forget, I gave the series five stars and read it all in a 48 hour stretch. Now I am reading the Leatherstocking Tales by James Fenimore Cooper. Quite a switch and for a REALLY scathing (and hilarious) review google up what Mark Twain had to say about THAT series.
Finally, there are plenty of details about life in a motor home. Not surprising since the author spends half his time in a motor home and has written a couple instructional books on the subject. And let us not forget the cat. There is a cat. An American Bobtail named Mango Bob. Bob never does much but somehow, by the end of each installment, he shines out as my favorite character.
So there ya go.

The character development is excellent, the scenes are painted so well you feel like you are there, and the plot is captivating.
Sign me up for Book Four!
The book is a fast and easy read. It has a nice comic touch, a little romance, some pets anyone would love and believable characters. What else do you need when you want a really good read that is more an appetizer than a heavy meal. Do not get me wrong, the Mango books are really fun reads and the plots are believable.
Read these books. They are fun!
