Publisher's Summary

Claire is back, raining trouble throughout Jackrabbit Junction in another fast-paced, fun, sexy suspense.

A burglar is on the loose! Claire wastes no time forming suspicions, but she's sidetracked by a treasure hunt.

Even with help from her boyfriend, Claire is swirling in a whirlpool of chaos. Throw her crazy sister into the torrent, along with an angst-ridden teen, a jittery bride, and some randy old men, and Claire struggles just to keep a toehold in the current.

Then her mother arrives.

Rolicking fun mystery

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.

Recommended.

Fun.

Non stop from page one. I love Claire and her septuagenarian friends. I'm excited to get to meet Ronnie in the next installment

May have to switch to reading

I really enjoy Ann Charles'writing and characters. I cannot handle the narrator's phrasing and cadence, however. It's too annoucer/voiceover-y. "In a world..." I prefer more voice acting like Caroline Shaffer on the Deadwood series.

Really enjoying

This series and the Deadwood series are loads of eye rolling and smirking. Really enjoying them.

Enjoyable

I’ve enjoyed every book by this author I’ve read/listened to. Funny and light-hearted, but with enough intrigue to keep you going. The narrator does a good job with voices and the narration in general.

The only thing I don’t like of this series is Jess. 15 year olds aren’t this dumb! She feels more like a 10 yr old trying to act 15.

Medicate Jess!

Aside from an annoying teenager that I want to clock, the plot is great! Ms. Charles is extremely talented!

Want to strangle the character?

Is it a sign of good writing that you become so involved in a story that you want to strangle one of the characters or is it a sign of dysfunction? Claire’s mother is a piece of work. I had to stop listening periodically just because I was getting angry at the character. Silly, I know, but apparently it was so well written, or I related too well to the character that I needed a time out.
