Anyone with a best friend will immediately recognize the camaraderie between the two main characters. Brady and Declan clearly go back a long way, as is evident by their comfortable interactions and witty banter. Clair crafted a lead duo who are eminently likable. I hated for the story to end; I could spend days with these guys and never grow bored.
The supporting cast were also realistic and well-crafted, and they moved the plot along at the perfect pace. Each new obstacle made me giggle, even as Brady grew more desperate. The town reminded me much of my own, the setting adding to my enjoyment of the whole piece.
As for McDoogal? You’ll love the description. And Brady’s revelation. And I won’t say any more than that. You’ve got to read it for yourself.
In Search of McDoogal was a delight from the first word to the last. I couldn’t put it down. Clair has hinted that she might write more lighthearted stories like this one, bringing back the same colorful cast of characters. I sincerely hope she does and eagerly await more in her IMER series.
As fate dictates, that buyer is four hours down the road so, here we go. You guessed it a chase to catch the buyer and get the painting back before the girlfriend even knows it’s missing. Whoever thinks this is going to be easy, raise your hand. As simple as that sounds, it would not be a Mae Clair story without complications. Oh, and there is a twist in there too. That is very like Mae Clair. Do the boys get the painting back? Well, you’ll just have to read the book. One more thought, if you like to laugh and have fun, this is the book for you.
It horrified Brady when he sold his girlfriend Vanessa’s cherished painting while watching her shop. He had one day to retrieve it before her return from a trip. The all-day tracking of the painting and the incredible chain of actions bolted me to the seat. The dialogue was hilarious and kept me laughing from the beginning to the end. It felt like these two guys were chasing their hundred-dollar bill got blown away, every time they almost touched it to grab it, another wind swooped it up.
The characters are believable. The mistake Brady made could have happened to anyone. The panicking, the willingness to go all the way in remediation, and the bargaining in saving a situation are so real in life. Yet the story put humor in such seemingly desperate circumstance. I look forward to more short stories from this author and this cast. Highly recommended.
I needn’t have worried. Mae Clair did not disappoint, and she has proven her versatility with McDoogal. A radically different tone and mood, yes, but the realistically funny, snarky conversations between two old friends, combined with the fast-paced plot, were perfect for this short read. It had me laughing all the way from Page One to The End, and I can’t wait to share another adventure with Brady and Declan!
One thing for sure. Mae Clair has proven her versatility as a writer with her new fun series. There’s no doubt about it. McDoogal is a delight!
While this story is far different from her usual genre, it didn’t disappoint.
Brady Conrad wants to impress his girlfriend. When he accidentally sells her beloved painting, he enlists the help of his friend, Declan, to help retrieve it.
What follows is a trip to a nearby town in search of the elusive “masterpiece”, a cast of quirky characters, a comedy of errors, and lots of laughs.
A solid five stars for this one.
