Sheriff Sunshine Vicram finds her cup o’ joe more than half full when the small village of Del Sol, New Mexico, becomes the center of national attention for a kidnapper on the loose.
Del Sol, New Mexico is known for three things: its fry-an-egg-on-the-cement summers, its strong cups of coffee—and a nationwide manhunt? Del Sol native Sunshine Vicram has returned to town as the elected sheriff--an election her adorably meddlesome parents entered her in--and she expects her biggest crime wave to involve an elderly flasher named Doug. But a teenage girl is missing, a kidnapper is on the loose, and all of it's reminding Sunny why she left Del Sol in the first place. Add to that trouble at her daughter’s new school and a kidnapped prized rooster named Puff Daddy, and Sunshine has her hands full.
Enter sexy almost-old-flame Levi Ravinder and a hunky US Marshall, both elevens on a scale of one to blazing inferno, and the normally savvy sheriff is quickly in over her head. Now it’s up to Sunshine to juggle a few good hunky men, a not-so-nice kidnapping miscreant, and Doug the ever-pesky flasher. And they said coming home would be drama-free.
|You are in Del Sol New Mexico where the new sheriff Sunshine Vicram and her daughter Auri have now moved to. Should be noted Sunshine grew up in this but had moved away. She also does not know how she won the election because she did not file any paperwork to run for sheriff. Oh, she also won a debate that she was not present for also.|
When the book begins with mother and daughter having a morning talk before school and work you know right then that the dialogue in this book is going to be different than any book that you have read in a long time. That is a good thing for really that is what makes this story tick, along with all of the little sayings at the beginning of each chapter you get a smile on your face that makes you want to continue with the story. There is also the story of what is happening in town with a missing girl. You also have Sunshine dealing with her past also.
The author has different characters and each one has a place from Sunshine’s parents to the different deputies even Bo (who) you will get it if you read this book. To Levi and his family, each one plays a role. Even Auri makes a friend at her new school and he is her protector when she needs it. This is a story, a journey that is much more than the actual story. It’s about fitting in or trying to or thinking you have to and then dealing with bullies. Overall I really liked this book with all of the little things that went on and the relationship between mother and daughter for one, but there was so much more. A very good read. I received this book from Netgalley.com I gave it 5 stars. Follow us at www.1rad-readerreviews.com
