What am I reading? Hell on Wheels by Sue Ann Jaffarian.
This is the ninth in her Odelia Grey series, and it's one of my favorite series. The characters are such fun and the plots are always all over the place. If I could I'd devour these books in one sitting. If only I had the time.
And the quotes I've got for you will prove why.
Let's start with the beginning, shall we?
The crash was not a surprise. I saw it coming, steeling myself for the inevitable sound of metal hitting metal at a high, reckless speed. The final impact rattled my teeth and took my breath away. It always did.
This is a humorous mystery series, and an example of the humor is found in two short sentences on page 56.
I really need to work on my duplicity skills. I wonder if there's an app for that?
Okay, so knowing a joke is coming might take away from the joke, but I laughed when I read that the first time around, something I rarely do with books.
I'm about half way through and loving it. I'm sure I'll finish this weekend despite being at Bouchercon. I can never do anything but race through the books in the series. As a result, I'm sure my review will be up at some point next week.
