BOOK REVIEW: DIRTY LAUNDRY
BY DANIEL EHRENHAFT
We hope you enjoy this book review by
While going undercover to research for her new TV show, Carli least expected to get caught up in a mystery. But when a girl goes missing, Carli can’t even think of standing aside. If the cops aren’t going to take it seriously, someone else needs too.
Fun isn’t happy with the arrangement. He doesn’t want to baby-sit a Hollywood brat, but if he wants to graduate he has to be Carli’s assistant. While Carli creates ideas of her own, Fun can’t help but harbor his own suspicions.
Neither of them planned to investigate a kidnapping. Neither were they prepared to face the outcome of their snooping…
Dirty Laundry was a pretty good book that I hope leads to a possible series, if not sequel.
Instead of describing the setting and characters as “bad”, I think a more appropriate word is “icky” They thought icky thoughts. They lived in icky rooms. They took part in icky activities. And some people were just icky, both physically and mentally. I believe the author wrote it that way purposefully and it did suit the story plot. I would have preferred it differently, but it worked out well.
From the beginning I had the bad guy pegged, but throughout the book I was forced to second-guess myself. The evidence was contradictory and the words sly and deceiving. Dirty Laundry is one of the few books that took a common “problem” and setting, but didn’t annoy me with its regularity.
The writing format and character voices were sloppy, but just quirky and funny enough to pull it off.
I’m hoping Dirty Laundry is just the beginning to a series or at least a planned sequel in the works. Yes, it could do fine as a stand alone but its plot and characters could easily live on in a few more books. That would enable a more gratifying goodbye.
