UPDATE: I don't think I'm going to get a Bingo. I've been in a bit of a slump the last two weeks and haven't felt much like reading. Next year I'll focus on reading books based on the bingo calls. I've been reading all over the place and have a few waiting in the wings for a call. 

 

I'm only posting a marker for books that I've finished that have been called because it is clear I will never be organized enough to follow a game correctly. 

 

I will update and bump this post if I ever get a Bingo!

This series is just wacky and crazy. I love it!
Play That Funky Music White Koi (Lemon Layne Mystery) - Hollie Jackson,Dakota Cassidy

    

 

This is a fun book, I mean just look at that title. :) If you want to laugh and still have a decent murder mystery then you should try this series! :) 

 

Lemon Layne isn't looking to get into any more murder mysteries but then Cappie comes to her house and they discover a dead body in her Koi pond. Of course, Cappie who is the fun loving conspiracy theorist sees that she has two punctures in her neck, starts speaking of vampires!! You just got to love Cappie!

 

Lemon really doesn't want to get involved but when someone dies in your Koi pond how could you not be curious and want to find out what happened. She can't help it if people talk to her and she finds out all about Amy from her friends and they were into alternative medicines, etc.  

 

I really like Lemon as she is a fun character but I really love the side characters like Cappie as he cracks me up! It also has a pretty decent mystery for being only 4 hour and 40 minute listen. I just let the killer slip through my fingers as I just didn't suspect that person and it should have been pretty obvious...lol. :) 

 

If you love wacky and zany characters then you should try this series. It's great after you have listened to something heavy and need a light crazy book. :)

I am getting to where I enjoy Hollie Jackson more and more with each read. She does a good job with this series.

Reading progress update: I've listened 25 out of 300 minutes.
Play That Funky Music White Koi (Lemon Layne Mystery) - Hollie Jackson,Dakota Cassidy

This series just cracks me up. It's purely for laugh out loud fun but they do have good short little mysteries. They have a conspiracy theorist that lives in town and in the first book the murder looked like a zombie did it and in this one there are puncture wounds so he thinks it's a vampire!! HEHE Just pure fun!

Prawn of the Dead by Dakota Cassidy
Prawn of the Dead (Lemon Layne Mystery) - Dakota Cassidy,Hollie Jackson

Lemon Layne and her mom run a gas station/convenience store/BBQ pitstop and one morning Lemon starts off the day by finding a dead fellow in one of the bathrooms! It appears he’s been shot and later it’s revealed that a piece of his brain is missing and that he was the ex-boyfriend of her mother. Her mother had told everyone who would listen that she wanted him dead after she discovered he had been cheating. Uh oh!



So Lemon, with the help of her pet monkey and her best friend, starts a-snooping and uncovering the dirt. To find out more about the plot you will have to read the book. 

This book is zany and light-hearted and will not hurt your brain or make you sad. I did not figure out the mystery but I suck at sleuthing so no surprise there. It takes place in an idyllic small coastal town in Washington and the cast is filled with eccentrics and out of all of them I loved Lemon’s mom the best. She’s feisty and just made me smile. We also have a hoard of zombie hunters, a monkey, a bossy best friend (she was not my favorite), a hunky policeman and quite a few others who come to vivid life in the audio. This is book #1 in a new series and even though I’m not a fan of following a series around until the end of time, I’d definitely read another of these to see what other wacky things are bound to happen in this little town. More murders, perhaps?!

I’d recommend the audio read by Hollie Jackson. She brings these nutty people to life and does a killer accent (I don’t know if it was accurate but I liked it anyway). She keeps the story moving and deftly moves from manly man to pissed off old lady without a hitch.

 

*I received a copy of this audiobook from Tantor Media. 

 

Read for Halloween Bingo 2017.
