Don't Sweat the Small Stuff by Don Bruns

James Lessor and Skip Moore just received their PI licenses from the department of Agriculture (Don't ask, it's Florida).  The problem being, that until their new business gets off of the ground, they got bills to pay and beer that needs bought.  So, James takes a job with a travelling carnival show to get them by, just until their new investigation business picks up.

Now, Skip saw the article where a woman fell to her death from one fo the rides months ago, but just forgot to tell James about it.  So when they realize that there has been quite a few "accident's" at the carnival, and they get hired to investigate, Skip and James figure this is their big break.

You have to realize that James and Skip aren't the brightest crayons in the box, but the repartee' between the two will have you rolling in stitches.  Watching James stake-out a dwarf zoo operator is very entertaining to say the least of their antics in the fun house. Things begin to heat up for Skip and James, not to mention the would-be girlfriends, and even though they bumble along in their own way, they do manage to unveil a few things.  But it wont' do any good if they can't get out with their lives.

The characters of Skip and James are very likable, entertaining, and are smarter than they appear.  The backdrop of the carnival for their investigation is treacherous, yet fun.  Toss in some spy toys from of their friends and you have pure fun reading of what they will do next.  High praise from this reader for Don't Sweat The Small Stuff.  I really look forward to seeing what Skip and James get into next!

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.
