Very entertaining! I had downloaded this quite awhile ago and finally got the opportunity to read it. Didn't know what to expect going in but was very pleasantly surprised.

Having enjoyed Young's previous title, Five Star Detour, I was really looking forward to Opportunity Slips. I can easily say that Opportunity doesn't disappoint. Once again Young is in top form with this entertaining adventure. The plot, refreshingly unpredictable and never boring, follows an extensive cast of likable characters in some unlikely situations. The author's brilliant choreography with words makes other books in this genre seem downright pedestrian. Even if you're not a hard-core mystery buff you will find a lot to like here, it's really quite funny and hard not to laugh aloud at some points. But despite the light, whimsical nature of the story, I turned the last page with a fundamentally more positive outlook on life. If you need a nice pick-me-up on a rainy day this book is sure to put a smile on your face, if not give you a craving for ice cream.

A very funny book, at first I wondered what I had purchased, but the more I read the better I enjoyed it. I have already purchased more of Sherban's books and I'm looking forward to reading them.

I did not like this book at all! Could not get into it no matter how I tried. Just not the book for me.

After thoroughly enjoying Five Star Detour, I couldn't wait to read the next book by Sherban Young. With characters who charm you from the first chapter to a plot that is so creative I couldn't put the book down, Opportunity Slips certainly lived up to my expectations. I highly recommend this book to everyone because it contains a broad enough spectrum to entice every kind of reader. Don't let the 'opportunity' to enjoy this book 'slip' by you!
