This was the third book in the McKays Series and I, personally, think that it is best to read the first two books prior to reading The Right Kind of Trouble. There is an ongoing mystery threaded throughout each book which culminates to a conclusion in this one. The first book has its own mystery, as well, while the second book is more of a bridge and ongoing story leading into the third. There is a separate romance in each book centering around one of the three McKay siblings. In The Right Kind of Trouble, Moira and Gideon are the main romantic interests with prior book MC's being secondary characters in this story. I didn't care much for Moira, but since I really loved Gideon, I was able to overlook what I found unappealing in Moira.

I genuinely enjoyed this book, but if I had to choose a favorite in the series, I think it would be the first book. I appreciated the multiple POV's in this book, as well as the others in the series. In the most enjoyable way, the multi-POV's give a window to the thoughts and contributions of each main character, the unknown villain, as well as many of the secondary characters. I wasn't surprised when the villain was revealed, but I also wasn't positive their identity. The details that comprised the book were well thought. In fact, I found myself amazed by all of the details woven throughout the three books that eventually yielded a finale that wrapped up the mystery nicely. I enjoyed following the complete series and I would, without hesitation, read a similar series by Shiloh Walker.

My only issue with this book was the editing and I, rarely if ever, comment on editing. I wouldn't even begin to fault the author as I would the publisher. Since this book is published by a mainstream traditional publishing house, I'm very surprised by the amount of errors not caught and corrected. It made me think that a rush to publish this story was the priority over quality . The errors were mostly missed or additional words, but they were hard to overlook due to their effect on sentence structure. I found myself having to re-read sentences in order to decipher the intended meaning. This was not the case in the first two books. Fortunately, it did not deter from my overall enjoyment of the book.
