In Time S Up Time s Up shut down an over eager guy at the bar with Move along pal I haven t upgraded to misery yet This time out she hits back with Think again pal Casual sex isn t in my job description or my repressed Catholic schoolgirl DNA when someone suggests she sleep her way into a convincing cover story Whether it s lines like those or comparing her hobbled self to the girl version of Jimmy from South Park Maisie s inner dialogue is hilariously entertaining WHY YOU SHOULD READ ITJaney Mack s writing style makes her work attractive to a very diverse group of readers If you enjoyed Gone Girl or Girl on the Train meeting Maisie McGrane is an absolute must Likewise if you re into mysteries and police dramas there s than enough of that in this book to go around Mack s sharp dialogue which is truly in a class of its own is the icing on the cake though If screenwriter Aaron Sorkin The West Wing Moneyball The Social Network The Newsroom wrote a novel this is exactly how I imagine the characters would speak to each other BOOK DETAILSAuthor Janey MackPages 341 PaperbackPublisher KensingtonRelease Date September 27 2016 A wild ride a satisfying conclusion in one part and an ending that made me sad This book nocked my socks off The arch of the plot really made my toes curl This book welcomed me in like a warm pair of socks I really enjoyed the first two Maisie books but this third one was by far my favorite Not that crying is a reuirement of mine for a book to be one of my favorites but this one made me cry at the end As with the first two books this one is a real page turner This book was a great escape from every day life and to get completely wrapped up in the story was fantastic The 3rd book in the Maisie McCrane series by Janey Mack I was a little astounded at the things Maisie did in this installment and that she came out alive from all of them I missed some of the family banter and interactions I also missed that there is no Hank in this installment But the author set up a potential love triangle with Maisie her new partner and Hank At times I thought the book was a little farfetched and I was sort of tired of Maisie sort of being a victim in that she appears to be being used by everyone while she thinks she is getting ahead in the police force There is a 4th installment coming so it will be interesting to see where Maisie goes The best entry yet in the Maisie McGrane mysteriesMaisie is still under cover And her cop family still thinks she is a meter maidBut this time she gets loaned out to the Feds to track down the source of some guns that are coming into the Chicago area Partnered with Lee Sharpe who assumes a much larger role in the series this time around she returns to play off of contacts she made in the earlier booksUnlike most series this one picks up in the moments after book two ended So reading the earlier is probably advised Each book in the series gets better can t wait for the next Maisie McGrane installment.
