SUNNY IN NAME AND SUNNY IN NATURE!!!!!!!!
Reviewed in the United States on December 5, 2014
Book one of the Sunny Randall series gets off to a great start. We meet and fall in love with Sunny herself in the prologue and by the end of chapter one, we see that she has just evolved from a painful but relatively docile divorce from the love of her life and has taken up a role of Private Detective. She hates her sister, loves her Dad to bits and can barely put up with her Mom.
This story, however, revolves around a missing fifteen year old girl that the very well-to-do Patton family have hired her to find. Sunny being Sunny in both name as well as nature has made one fan in the girl's father but possibly an enemy with the girl’s mother.
Anyway, the job is accepted by Sunny and the hunt for the girl is on.
The writing is typically Parker’ish. That is, full of life, and laughs, and tears, and moving observations of what life is like on this sacred globe hanging delicately in space we call Earth. Wonderfully short chapters make the book easy to read for newbies but seasoned fans of the genius that was Robert B. Parker will simply go with the flow of the story until they fall asleep in their leather bound wing chairs (or in my case, at the kitchen table!!!!).
This book is so good that I am about to order the entire series from Amazon.
The good news is that there is only six books in the series.
But the bad news is that there is only six books in the series.
Lets hope the estate of Mr Parker decide to find someone to write more Sunny Randall books.
A very healthy four stars from me.
As i have learned from reading the truly great works of other authors in this fantastic genre, you must leave room for greatness.
