Vince, a handsome, driven lawman, digs up more than just clues to the brutal murder. Brett, a fun-loving pathologist with a deadly sense of humor, drives everyone crazy with his fart machine-will travel. Macey's supersized black cat Wikket, possessing courage, curiosity, and crankiness in equal portions, assists in his own grumpy, feline fashion, golden eyes open and claws extended.
I decided to read and review this book based on the words “fart machine” in the blurb. What can I say? Farts are hilarious. I’m immature like that. I think the author and I share a similar sense of humor, for the most part.
I could immediately see why this book was a Kindle Scout winner. It’s well written, has a nice, even pace, just enough mystery to keep things interesting, and plenty of witty, snappy dialogue. Fun, quirky characters are also in abundance, which I love.
This book is also a bit of genre-bender, which is cool. There’s a little bit of something here for fans of satire, mystery, chick lit and romance. And it works really well as the first book in a series in all of those categories. Mostly.
I did have a few nitpicks that lowered my rating a bit:
Minor gripes aside, this was an overall fun, light story from a talented author that’s definitely worth a read.
Full disclosure: the author generously offered a free copy of the book in exchange for an honest review, but I didn’t take it. I downloaded via Kindle Unlimited.
