Review: Repo Chick Blues
Repo Chick Blues by Tracy Sharp
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Please Note: I read this book in September 2011 from a copy I won in a giveaway. All opinions are my own.
About the Book: Book 1 in the Leah Ryan mysteries introduces us to hard-as-nails Leah Ryan; former juvenile car thief, now a construction worker. When her car is repossessed, she decides to try to get a job there; the owner, Callahan, gives her a chance and she quickly shows she knows what she is doing. On one of the first jobs, she rescues a mistreated Rottweiler, who is called Buddy, and takes him in. On another of the earliest jobs, she repossesses the car of the local drug lord and pimp, Brent Woodard, who then sets out to make her life miserable – she, of course, sets out to return the favor. By the end, she has contacted a bunch of her old friends and even her brother, recently released from jail after hacking into a government database, is involved.
My Thoughts: Fast-moving and high tension, this is a book to keep you reading through to the end. I really enjoyed it. There were a couple plot mishaps – most obviously when she first says her brother was three years old one year after her mother left them, and then later says he was four prior to her mother leaving – but they were minor enough to not reduce my enjoyment of the story. I already had book 2, “Finding Chloe,” and also picked up book 3, “Dirty Business.” I highly recommend these books to those who enjoy a kick-butt heroine. Great stuff!
