A Hard Day for a Hangover by Darynda Jones


Some people greet the day with open arms. Sheriff Sunshine Vicram would rather give it a hearty shove and get back into bed, because there’s just too much going on right now. There’s a series of women going missing, and Sunny feels powerless to stop it. There’s her persistent and awesomely-rebellious daughter Auri, who’s out to singlehandedly become Del Sol’s youngest and fiercest investigator. And then there’s drama with Levi Ravinder—the guy she’s loved and lusted after for years. The guy who might just be her one and only. The guy who comes from a family of disingenuous vipers looking to oust him—and Sunshine—for good.

Like we said, the new day can take a hike.

A Hard Day For a Hangover by Darynda Jones


Sunshine is the sheriff in a small New Mexico town. Between a busy work schedule, her love life, and a teenage daughter, Sunshine has a lot on her plate. And, oh boy, does Sunshine has her hands full in this book!

A Hard Day for a Hangover is the third book in the Sunshine Vicram series. I recommend reading the earlier two books before diving into this one. While this book can stand on its own, understanding the characters and what has happened previously makes for a more enjoyable read.

The characters are quirky. The setting is charming. The writing is witty. The story is exciting. A Hard Day for a Hangover is a gripping read with romance, humor, and mystery. A great read for fans of mysteries with strong female protagonists and sarcastic humor.

I received a digital copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
