The Curious Case of the Missing Figurehead was a fun read. At times it was romantic, at times suspenseful, and at times thoughtful. But it was at all times a fun read.

There isn't anything really deep as far as character development in the story. The perspective changes from the first person perspective of our main character- El Littlefield- to third person perspective focusing on other main characters at time.

But even though there isn't lots of depth of characters, the fast-paced, suspenseful story was a really enjoyable read. I was caught up in the mystery from the start. And, although transitions were a little choppy at times, the mystery of the figurehead's disappearance along with El's missing best friend not to mention the trouble of all the illness from the banquet catered by El's catering group, were all enough to keep me very interested in reading to the end.
