Book Description

Sept. 18 2009
When Marty Drysdale first meets Chick, a member of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, he has an ounce of marijuana in the backseat of the limo he's driving and a breaking-and-entering offense on his record.

He escapes that first meeting with just a traffic ticket as well as a major crush on the woman who is six inches taller whom he nicknames "Officer Beautiful."

After just a month of knowing her, Marty asks Chick to marry him, and against all hope, she giggles and agrees. But Chick quickly grows frustrated with his laziness and oddities.

Then, one night, coming home from his latest job as a projectionist at a movie theater, Marty crashes his Flxible Flxette Buick limousine. In the shower of sparks, glass and twisted metal, he has an epiphany: he will film his own movie and prove to Chick that he's a man worth having.

It isn't long, however, before Marty finds himself pursued by a group of angry investors and other unintended victims of his latest scheme. He'll have a lot of explaining to do if he wants to get out of his latest pinch and keep the woman of his dreams in Odd Jobs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Odd Jobs Nov. 16 2011
By Chelle33 - Published on Amazon.com
I read "Odd Jobs" after having received it at a book festival in 2009. It was honestly one of the funniest books I've read. The protagonist goes through multiple situations that are purely bad luck, but hilarious to the reader. I recommend it to anyone who can appreciate sick and twisted humor.
