I loved, loved, loved, loved this book!!!!!

Where has Mackenzie August been all my life???!!! I LOVED this listen sooooo much!!!!

Mackenzie August is a retired-cop-turned-school-teacher (are you smiling yet?) who lives with his still-got-it-going-on Dad, and a studly Hispanic ex-cop-turned-marshal best friend. (I know you're smiling now.) He's the father of a Gerber-baby-runner-up named Kicks. He's charismatic and snarky wrapped in a hunk suit. All day. Every day.

This story was insanely good. Insanely. Good. It's a crime mystery with drugs, church, and wayward women thrown in for good measure. Seriously, this book is so good.

The narrator was up to the task. He made Mackenzie tough with a side of tender. He added the right amount of snark and wit that made this story flow. He was incredibly believable when delivering the Hispanic character. I cannot say enough good words about the narration.

Seriously, stop reading this review. Go bathe in the wonder that is Mackenzie August. Then thank the book gods that there will be a book two.

Loved it!

I really enjoyed reading this book, every minute of it. The witty humor and sarcasm made me laugh many time throughout the book. The only negative is the shortness of the book. I will read it again, and again.
