Book Description

In this first book in the Mango Bob series, Walker has just lost his job, his wife has filed for divorce, and he’s living in a tent down by the river.

Being ever resourceful, Walker swaps his truck for a motorhome (aka ‘the Love Bus’), and agrees to drive it cross-country to sleepy Englewood Florida so he can deliver a cat named Mango Bob to a woman he's never met.

Should be easy, right? Drive to Florida, hand over the cat, and then hang out on the beach.

Except there’s an unsolved murder involving the Love Bus, the Mexican mafia, and a half million in missing gold coins.

Add to the mix a trigger happy grandma, a team of bungling burglars, the hot chick with the kayak, the repo man, and you get a rollicking travel romp through the Sunshine State.

A fun and fast read!

5.0 out of 5 stars A good yarn May 2, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
John Walker's story unfolds in a sequence of believable events. You feel you're on the road as Walker learns the details about RV travel. There is suspense, a touch of mystery, or a smidgen of romance at every stop. The lovable Mango Bob is a cat with attitude and no tail, the perfect companion for an unexpected and eventful trip to Florida.

Mango Bob is an easy, enjoyable read. No bad words or steamy sex here, it's just a good yarn filled with interesting characters. You can share this book with anyone in the family.

You'll finish looking forward to the next Mango Bob adventure.

3.0 out of 5 stars Shocked at Being Left Hanging July 18, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was an interesting book and its characters kept me reading because it was a bit unusual. I was shocked to get to the end and to find myself left hanging. I actually said out-loud, "Really? Really? You're kidding me." Disappointingly the cat (that the book is named for) really has only a minor roll in this story. I will look for the sequel if only to find out what happens.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! May 4, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Really excellent read! Here's my suggestion: read Bill's nonfiction fook about motorhomes (http://www.amazon.com/Buying-Used-Motorhome-burned-ebook/dp/B007OV4TBY/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1336169916&sr=1-1) first, and you'll enjoy the book even more!
I started reading this on a plane trip from Seattle to Denver, and couldn't put it down. I can't WAIT for the sequel!

1.0 out of 5 stars Boring...... June 28, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
After reading the description of the book I was really looking forward to reading this. It sounded quirky and fun and I was in the mood for some light reading. Unfortunately, I only made it through 40% of the book before I gave up, and I have to tell you, I don't often leave books that I've started. Mango Bob is the title of the book and therefore, I expected him to be introduced pretty quickly in the story but at 40% through, I hadn't even met him yet. The main character is boring and basically shrugs off his wife unexpectedly serving him with divorce papers. He goes from having a wife and home that morning to living in tent and alone that evening without any kind of emotion. I felt no connection to this wooden character. When he gets the "Love Bus" I thought things might begin to pick up, but, no. At this point it seems to turn into an RV manual, when he is tutored on his RV by a new friend. There is waaay too much unnecessary description about the RV that lends nothing to the story. The plot then introduces a totally predictable "break in" which will leave nobody guessing. It was shortly after this that I just gave up, I couldn't do it. I could not continue to throw away a beautiful summer day and went for a walk instead. I suggest to anybody reading this, do not waste a moment of your day on this, choose another book, or go for walk, do something fun, but do not waste your time on this!

1.0 out of 5 stars Boring October 3, 2013

A waste of time and battery life. There is no character development; nor is there any story development. Unless you want to learn how a motor home operates don't bother reading this book.

1.0 out of 5 stars one of my worst reads ever December 12, 2012
By Boleyn
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
According to the customer reviews this should have been an easy read. Easy yes - if you like RV manuals. Easy also because almost everything in the book is repeated - several times! And eventually when Mango Bob turns up all you get to know about him is that he is a big cat and some of his "talking" habits. That's it. Except maybe for the many grammatical and typing errors (and English ist not my first language...) Read also the review of D.Shipley - this says it all. To me it's a mystery how an author like this can actually make money with his writing.

1.0 out of 5 stars Boring September 21, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This book was slow and basically boring. He must intend it for juvenile reading and not adults. The only redeeming quality was it being based in Florida.

1.0 out of 5 stars Honey Boo Boo meets Office Space October 26, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Thank goodness the book finally ended! Myers missed a great opportunity to develop his characters and plot. Nothing drives the story forward other than him locking the effen motor home every time he leaves. Couldn't there be anything fun in the plot like Walker's ex banging Tucker on the side? Nope. Nada. Maybe Molly is into naked hallway meditation? Not even. Here, have a boring ass character and deal with it through the whole...freaking...book.
