Deep Fried and Pickled by Paisley Ray (The Rachael O'Brien Chronicles Book 1) - Book Review/Giveaway





Paisley Ray books are not your typical fiction. A young woman's plan for an art history degree turns into an outrageous series of misadventures in this laugh-out-loud romp about a girl who enrolls in a southern college during the height of the crazy era that was the 1980’s. This collection crosses genres of chick lit, mystery, romance, humor, and action with the possibility of a corpse or two. To date there are 8 novels in this humorous romantic misadventure mystery series with book #9 due to release spring of 2016.

It’s ’86, the era of Pop Rocks, Jelly shoes, and big hair rock bands. Rachael O'Brien's freshman plan seems simple: Attend a southern college, earn a degree, party, and meet cute guys—hopefully acing the latter two.

But being threatened by a jealous She-Devil, avoiding the advances of a thirty-something redneck, and discovering an art fraud scheme thwart her “to do” list. On top of her troubles at school, Rachael finds herself forging a new relationship with her emotionally shaken father after Mom abandons the family to pursue a psychic calling.

Bad decision-making, law-bending behavior, and surprise romances make freshman year memorable in Paisley Ray’s DEEP FRIED AND PICKLED.

"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".....

"Being a Southern girl and child of the 80s myself, I enjoyed the characters, the setting and the period references. Good plot without being too serious or watered down."

"This fun and quirky mystery was very nostalgic for me as I got to relive the eighties through Rachael."

"An entertaining read. Fresh new characters and some zany plot twists kept me reading late into the night."

My Review:

I thought this was a fun read. Rachael was a character that I could relate to. She was quirky and funny. I really like that it was set in the 80's because it made it even funner to read. 4 college age girls looking for love where they shouldn't be was such a fun journey. I enjoyed reading about their first year of college. Their mishaps and adventures made for a good read. I would love to read the whole series and hope to.
