Angela Cray Gets Real: (An Angela Cray Mystery, Book 1) Kindle Edition
|New from||Used from|
"Dara Carr's Angela Cray Gets Real is a mystery with a decidedly unconventional detective: Angela Cray is broke, living with her mother, desperately in need of a job, and entirely lacking in detective experience. Her story of venturing into this new line of work is stylish, absorbing, and laugh-out-loud funny."--Rebecca Hussey for Foreword Clarion Reviews
"Verdict: ANGELA CRAY GETS REAL is gleefully sardonic and wonderfully convoluted and as hilarious a mystery novel as you are likely to find anywhere."--Chaz Baker for IndieReader--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I loved this book.
Angela is not your regular female protagonist but more like an anti-hero. She is more out of jobs than in jobs. But she is a very likeable and warmhearted gal.
When her neighbour and friend the elderly Iona passes suddenly away Monalisa, her granddaughter and lawyer, moves into the house and offers Angela to investigate a missing fiancee for one of her clients. She is not going to screw up this job and is gung-ho to find him no matter what it takes... And, whoa it takes a lot....
Angela doesn't always make the smartest decisions but that just contributes to the fun of this roller coaster ride.
When I read the description I did not expect to like the story as much as I did! A wonderful surprise.
A great first installment in this series and I can't wait to meet Angela again.
I requested this book from NetGalley and am thankful that Xpresso Book Tours and the author provided me with a copy.

Angela Cray Gets Real is the first book in a series. I love that there is a sense of history right off the bat. I'd read a prequel and I'm definitely going to follow Dara Carr on Amazon so I am notified of new releases. I hope there are many more books in the series.
The characters feel authentic and I love the mystery. It's not the light airy cozy or the gritty, deeply dangerous thriller that I usually read. Instead, it's somewhere in the middle with its danger laced liberally with humor.
I won a beautiful paperback copy in a contest and voluntary chose to review it.
It is a great book and well worth the read.
I was very happy to find a sophisticated, suspenseful mystery I could read before bed and still be able to fall asleep. There’s some scary stuff in there, but the violence doesn’t feel gratuitous and it’s blunted by the humor you’ll find in every paragraph – if not every sentence.
Let’s hope this is just the beginning of our adventures with Angela Cray.
