About A Hard Day for a Hangover

Some people greet the day with open arms. Sheriff Sunshine Vicram would rather give it a hearty shove and get back into bed, because there’s just too much going on right now. There’s a series of women going missing, and Sunny feels powerless to stop it. There’s her persistent and awesomely-rebellious daughter Auri, who’s out to singlehandedly become Del Sol’s youngest and fiercest investigator. And then there’s drama with Levi Ravinder—the guy she’s loved and lusted after for years. The guy who might just be her one and only. The guy who comes from a family of disingenuous vipers looking to oust him—and Sunshine—for good.

My thoughts about A Hard Day for a Hangover

This is the perfect ending to this trilogy, although seriously, I don’t want the series t end. So much love for the main characters of this trilogy, Sunshine and her daughter Auri! Darynda Jones is a master at writing characters who don’t just encourage you to like them, they demand it and I gladly give in every freaking time. 

A HARD DAY FOR A HANGOVER punched me in the heart one moment and had me giggling the next. I want to go out for burritos with all of the quirky, loveable characters in Del Sol. And I need to see that wily, scheming raccoon at the police station in action! 

I loved getting an incredibly satisfying conclusion to the mysteries that ran through the trilogy. 

Read this if you’re looking for mysteries with a lot of snarkalicious humor but a lot of emotion. I’ll admit that I shed some tears while reading.

In closing

Darynda Jones is one of my autobuy authors. I love the way she writes characters that demand that I care about them. And she always balances the punches to the feels with sarcastic, wry humor that makes me snork throughout the book.

If you haven’t already, read the first book in the series, A Bad Day for Sunshine.
