Editorial Reviews


Hashes & Bashes is PJ Colando's second book in the Jackie and Steve series, and follows the subsequent adventures of this very real and lovable Midwestern farm couple and the spirited lives of the many entertaining folks around them. Struggling with farm debt and adjusting to the return home of their full grown son, Steve and Jackie's day today lives on their dairy farm are suddenly disrupted by the arrival of a stranger, Carl, who claims to be Steve's long-lost half brother. As the family and town size up the handsome Californian stranger and his unfamiliar 'egg-white eating' lifestyle, Steve and Jackie move from uncertain mistrust of this odd visitor to admiration and brotherly love, specially validated by their dog Sparty.

Steve, Jackie and their colorful friends and family embark on the many events and activities of small town life, including baked goods of a suspicious nature, strange Avon lady gifts, and a long list of odd romances, not the least of which involve their son, Brandon. But when a second brother, long estranged from Steve due to conflict, arrives in their lives, the family is tested in their relationships, finances, and homestead.

PJ Colando captured me from the opening lines and pulled me into the warmth and love in Steve and Jackie's lives. With vivid descriptions, I was transported into Steve's cow barn, smelled the cookies in Jackie's kitchen, and felt like I personally knew all the lively characters presented. Colando has a great knack for capturing the day to day humor that surrounds such engaging personalities without sounding forced. Every character was believable and captivating as they moved through their own curious story lines. And beneath the peculiar and comical antics, the underlying strength and support of a Midwestern farming community shone through every line. This is a great read for anyone looking to sit back and be absorbed into real life with a dose of good chuckles and imaginative twists.
