Editorial Reviews

From the Author

DEEP FRIED AND PICKLED is the first novel in THE RACHAEL O'BRIEN CHRONICLES humorous mystery fiction series.
 
I often get asked by readers what order THE RACHAEL O'BRIEN CHRONICLES books should be read in. Each book can be read without any prior knowledge of any of the others. That said, some readers do want to follow a chronological list of events in Rachael's southern fried, 80's college life antics so here it is.

After reading some of the "disappointed" reviews, I had to weigh in on this series. If you are looking for a serious book addressing college drinking, etc. in a serious way - this is not the book for you!! I attended college as an older adult, so I am NOT running down memory lane, I just enjoyed this book and its continuing series for the absolute silliness of a fun book. There is great dialogue, the mysteries are mostly misunderstandings, and every time she tries to throw herself into a basic college situation to lose her self-control - it never ends up as she planned, and you want to laugh at how it does end up. I am an older adult who can still enjoy a funny, sassy, silly, young person's POV, and I really am waiting patiently for hr next installment. Don't you remember what is was like to be young, and make some bad choices or have things go in a very different way than you planned? Those are the things that make us laugh later in life, how we survived it all! It's fun FICTION, it's not how I would have my daughters or grand-daughters behave, but so many young people do in an attempt to find their own way in life, told in a funny light-hearted way. Enjoy!!

This one's a charmer! Anyone who grew up in the '80s will enjoy a trip down memory lane with Rachel O'Brien, a heroine who keeps the story moving like a gifted emcee. Rachel is relatable, earnest and totally clueless--just like most of us stumbling our way through the college years. If you're looking for some good, old-fashioned nostalgic escapism, curl up with this book.

Loved the southern fried chicks. Glad there was a side mystery to hang the plot on. Green fried tomatoes meets Bridget jones!

Paisley Rae's Deep Fried and Pickled is a hilarious journey through the eyes of a college freshman in 1986. Whether you went to school in the 80's or after, you will love this book. As Rachael O'Brien navigates her way through new friends and boys, you will laugh out loud. It is the perfect winter break read!

After slogging 1/3 of the way thru, I could not finish it. The story revolves around repeated sterotypical drunken college parties, attempts to get laid, irresponsible behavior and road trips. There was nothing to hold my interest. I don't normally give up on books, but after the umpteenth drunken party, I put it down. I guess I'm too old now to really reminisce fondly about the frat parties and random hookups that this book is filled with.

I absolutely love Paisley Ray. This is the first book I have read of hers and had to buy all 3 and am anxiously awaiting book 4. I could not put them down. Paisley is one of my all time favorite authors now. You will so enjoy these books!
