More Book Reviews…
The indie book Duckett & Dyer: Dicks for Hire was so much fun, I read book 2. I’m happy to report that the fun continues with Duckett & Dyer: The One-Hundred Percent Solution by G.M. Nair. It is just as fast-paced and humorous as the first book but with even more action.
The ridiculous duo of inexperienced detectives Michael Duckett and Stephanie Dyer kept me laughing while they navigated one problem after another. It all starts with Michael losing his job at the Future Group. What is the Future Group? Everyone finally finds out.
After a visit from a strange, secretive woman who wants to hire Duckett & Dyer Dicks for Hire, Michael and Stephanie’s detective agency finally has business. The Garbagemobile rolls again, and old favorites are back, including Detective Rex Calhoun. This time, Rex enlists the services of Michael and Stephanie to crack his case, but he’s not happy about it.
The duo bumble through just about everything, but Earth’s future depends on them to finally do one thing right.
The book Do Your Laundry Or You’ll Die Alone by Becky Blades was given to my daughter years ago, and it’s been sitting in a box ever since until a cleaning spree last weekend. It was in her “giveaway” pile, but the title caught my attention and curiosity. It’s a very quick read, and I enjoyed it. It reminded me of the poster “All I Really Need to Know, I Learned in Kindergarten,” which was also a book, but I never read it.
Young adults could benefit from the advice, and it’s full of good reminders about things the not-so-young adults tend to forget—but shouldn’t.
My personal favorites are “cut people some slack” and “don’t think you know how it feels.”
She did leave out “always write a book review”—the time it takes you to read a book and write a quick review is probably one-hundredth the amount of time an author has put into that book.
