The Pilot & the Puck-Up is a very light hearted read/listen. This author is all about OTT humour and characters that are completely ridiculous at times, but she provides a nice break from the more angsty reads. The 2 main characters in this story, Zeuss and Joey, are not at all angsty. I felt zero angst listening to this, but I did smile and laugh a lot at their OTT antics and behaviour.
Joey is the determined and capable pilot, she is beyond protective of her *little* sister, she is one tough customer. She excels in her chosen profession, and she takes NO crap from anyone. Zeuss is the huge, enormous hockey player, who makes a habit of embarrassing himself in Joey's presence. He also has a phobia of spiders, which leads to some funny scenes across the story.
Lots of secondary characters that play a large part in the story - family and friends of Zeuss and Joey. I haven't listened to all of their stories yet, but this would be easily read/listened to as a standalone. Fabulous narration by Jason Clarke and Erin Mallon - I recommend listening to this authors books rather than reading, as she has some awesome narrators performing across her books, that do a great job with the OTT humour and making for a really fun listen.
