I'm not looking for deep meaning, strong messages or socially redeeming. Give me interesting characters, some laughs and fun plot twists!

    There isn't much fun in the sun when a billionaire real estate tycoon is found murdered on the Tilt-a-Whirl at a seedy seaside amusement park in the otherwise quiet summer tourist town of Sea Haven. John Ceepak, a former MP just back from Iraq, has just joined the Sea Haven police department. The job offer came from an old Army buddy who hoped to give Ceepak at least a summer's worth of rest and relaxation to help him forget the horrors of war. Instead, Ceepak will head up the murder investigation.

    What made the experience of listening to Tilt-a-Whirl the most enjoyable?

    Danny and Ceepak are great fun! The plot has some real twists and goes deeper than your average quick and fun listen!


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    About the time you're sure you know what's going on there is a twist. The humor slides in and keeps sneaking up at just the right times too.


    What does Jeff Woodman bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    I found myself walking saying "focus Danny" to myself in that same tone whenever I started chasing squirrels in my head. :)


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I not only wanted to listen in one sitting - I downloaded the rest of the series. Love 'em!


    Any additional comments?

    Like Springsteen? Like fun reads with humor and some substance? Been to the Jersey boardwalk? If you answered yes to any of these give Danny and Ceepak a try!

    Mercy Thompson's life is not exactly normal. Her next-door neighbor is a werewolf. Her former boss is a gremlin. And she's fixing a VW bus for a vampire. But then, Mercy isn't exactly normal herself.

    Story

    I tried this book because I was looking for a new series. I got pulled into the books very quickly. Mercy is a strong female lead who takes no crap from the bigger and badder out there. She's sarcastic, caring and smart.

    The books are about the paranormal and the mystery - without a lot of the romance baggage.

    I found the setting - the Tri-Cities in Washington and Mercy's "day job" - a mechanic to be refreshing changes from so many of the other series out there.

    I'd say the book is worth a shot - and a good intro into the series.
