A Bad Day for Sunshine by Darynda Jones
St Martin's Press and Net Galley let me read this book for review (thank you). It will be published April 7th.
It's her first day on the job and she walks into a huge mess. A woman claims a man has stolen her rooster, Puff Daddy. A young girl is missing from school and believes she'll die on her fifteenth birthday, which isn't far away. Her parents are frantic. A young disabled boy is missing and the weather is very bad.
If that wasn't bad enough she sees her old boyfriend in town and he looks better than ever. Then the US Marshalls come to help look for the girl and one of them is a hunk, too. She's got too much to do to worry about romance.
Her daughter is having trouble at school and the bullies find out her mother's secret and play it on the school's television. The sheriff's secret is out but almost everyone knew the truth anyway.
This is a hell of a beginning for the new sheriff but she has a way with dealing it all. She's a refreshing character and I look forward to reading more about her adventures.
