Audio Review: Whiskey Sour (Jacqueline “Jack” Daniels Series) by J.A. Konrath

“I was overworked, underpaid, and socially retarded. I discovered J. A. Konrath over Christmas break, and in devouring all of his thrillers I came across a mystery series. Whiskey Sour is the first book in Konrath’s Jacqueline “Jack” Daniels Mysteries. This book is a big departure from his techno-thrillers. Though Jack investigates heinous crimes, the novel is written with […]

Meanwhile, Katy and Ezra […]

Alex: “Egg whites are full of protein.” Violet: “So is jizz. You don’t see me harvesting yours so I can drink a glass of it.” And that’s pretty much how the entire book went. Alex and Violet traded snarky humor, throughout the book, and had me laughing hysterically the whole way through. Unlike the typical […]
