I'm a 30-something paranormal, mystery, and humor enthusiast. For me, the main character is the most important part of a book.
Non stop from page one. I love Claire and her septuagenarian friends. I'm excited to get to meet Ronnie in the next installment
This 2nd book in the Jackrabbit Junction series is firing on all cylinders and expands the cast of characters. We have the same fun crowd as before with Claire, Harley and his besties (my favorite is Manny), Ruby, her daughter Jess, and Mac. Add to the mix Claire’s mother Deborah, her younger sister Kate and the very hot bar owner Butch, and things in the Junction just got jittery.
They mystery is less mysterious this time around, but that’s only because it relies again on the misdeeds of Ruby’s dead husband Joe. This time we have a different person he did wrong. If Joe was so rotten, it’s hard to believe that Ruby was so blind she didn’t see it.
There is also a recurring thread about Mac having told Claire he loves her but that he doesn’t want the rest of the world to know he said that. I found those parts of the story really annoying. They could potentially be true to how people really are, but it made me want to tell the character to man up. He said it, so he should own it.
Narrator Lisa Larsen shines again with her performance. The sound is professional, and with minimal slips she sounds great and clear all the way through. Generally, the listener will immediately know who is being voiced even without the tags. There is one time where Chester didn’t sound gruff enough, but that was an exception and not the rule.
Full disclosure: I received a free audible download of this book from the narrator in exchange for an honest review. I have enjoyed this so much, though, that I plan on immediately buying the 3rd book in the series just so I know what happens next.
