Chop Chop: Book Review of Antiques Chop: A Trash N Treasure Mystery

Image

I got this surprise in my little envelope from Kensington Books this month. I wasn’t sure why, but settled in to read it anyways.

Oh, My. Gawd!

It’s a great cozy mystery, don’t get me wrong. But what made me say “Awesome Sauce!” was the comments directed at the reader. Because in the world of Brandy and Vivian, they not only solve mysteries, they also write them. And when they comment directly to us, dear readers, it’s hilarious. Their comments about watching language so they can finally (finally!) crack the Walmart market, the notes between daughter (Brandy) and mother (Vivian) and of course, their beleaguered editor…. oh my goodness. And the last chapter— written by hand because they don’t allow laptops in jail.

HA!

I loved this book. I loved all the little nods to them telling a story, the “dear reader” moments. I kept reading fast and faster, trying to catch more of them. This is the latest in a series— I’m going to have to go back and read the other ones too. Whee!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Have you read this series? How many Dear Reader moments are there? Maybe I’ll have to go back and count… on account they are dipped in  awesome sauce.
