Burn One Down by Jeffrey A. Cooper - GIVEAWAY!!!


5 STARS!

ABOUT THE BOOK -
Retiring thief Jack Apple is offered a low-­risk, six-­figure payout to heist a medical marijuana dispensary from the feisty and impetuous Diane Thomas after Diane steals the robbery plans from her shady ex-­husband Alvin, hoping to beat him to the score.

Diane promises to stay out of Jack’s way but she can’t help interfering, forcing them to take hostages inside the dispensary when the robbery is interrupted by law enforcement, inciting a media circus that deteriorates into a full-­on urban riot.

To escape, Jack and Diane must negotiate the hostages, their agendas, an army of Sheriff’s deputies, the tenacious local news media, crooked deals, corrupt politicians, rioters, Diane’s shady ex-­husband Alvin, and their growing attraction to each other.

MY THOUGHTS -
Who knew crime could be so much fun! Seriously - laugh out loud funny.
This book starts hilarious,very cheeky! I was Laughing out loud and therefore had to read parts of it to my daughter whom I was visiting at the time. I also, in a way, read it to my granddaughter, but I don't think she got it - she's only 8 months!!! LOL! A future fan.

Quite a lot of characters to keep track of, but each one has its place, and each one is important. Even the four different news reporters had fun, quirky, unique personalities and something to add to the story. I loved the melding of all of the different personalities. The author did a fantastic job with this. I especially loved the two main characters - Jack and Diane (a coincidence with the names? I think not! This author is very clever). I can't say that Jack and Diane worked well together - because they did not! But that was part of what made this so darn funny.

Sure this book is a wild and crazy ride but there's also meaning in here. It's not just a robbery gone crazy wrong it's also about protesting, equal rights, women's rights, marijuana being legalized (which I am all for), and so much more. Definitely my type of book!

I read this book easily in three days even with the distraction of my baby granddaughter! LOL A fun, quick, quirky summer read, but also one with a deeper meaning. I highly recommend this, especially if you are looking for something a little different.

Pool Rating - 5 Stars! A fantastic, fun poolside book!

    1. And then, true story- when I was finishing the book at home, I kept laughing out loud in front of my husband. He kept saying "what? what?" And I just kept saying, "This book is just so freakin hilarious!"
