There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I started following the author shortly after reading Katie and Emily's stories. I read Buckle Bunny and Shock Jock, also two short Maggie stories, and was happy that I didn't have to wait forever for Live Wire to be released. I felt like I was missing a few things, so I just bought the Michelle series. Live Wire can be read as a stand alone, but I would recommend reading Buckle Bunny first.
They just keeping destroying others with their games. Is an alcoholic, former heroin and cocaine addict a good mate and child bearing partner candidate??? On reflection, perhaps this should be required reading for high school psychology and sociology classes.

BUT, that is kind of the point.
The story evolves, there are snippets of back story that make you feel as though you have dropped into a real life situation. Things aren't neat, she's created some of the situations she has found herself in (most of them, to be honest) Other characters don't like her. Or she doesn't think they do. And I didn't either. To be honest, she's the sort of person you'd avoid. And you certainly don't want her crashing into your life again. And then the person she hooked up with for a one night stand (and turfed out of his room in the morning) is found dead; so she's stuck until the police let her leave the area. That wouldn't stop her but her truck breaks down, too.
As I said, I didn't like her at the start, but by the end of the book, I was galloping to find out what happens next. It's not all neat, there's no predictable ending with all loose ends tied up, and it's like real life - stuff happens.
Authors who drop into the pit of foul language and blasphemy, are unable to present a good language flowing read. Good worthy authors have a good grasp of language and can bring their offering forward with heads held high
Against all the odds I grew to like Maggie and was on her side.
So much going on, I really enjoyed it.
