5 stars for Bourre Brouhaha: The Big Uneasy 8 by @paulinebjones #romanticmystery #bookreview

Title: Bourre Brouhaha: The Big Uneasy 8

Author: Pauline Baird Jones

Genre: Romantic Mystery, Humorous Cozy Mystery

Book Blurb:

He’s a firefighter. She’s the daughter of an arsonist. What could possibly go wrong?

Eddie Baker doesn’t know it yet, but he’s ready to fall in love. The only thing standing in his way are his family, a couple of mob bosses, and a cast of dubious characters.

Audrey Goodheart isn’t a witch or a fortune teller, though she sometimes plays them in her working life. All she wants is a good man to love and a criminal-free life.

What stands in her way? A wide variety of the criminal friends of her father, the person trying to burn down her life, and, oh, those people who think she’s a reincarnated witch.

Audrey is incurably honest. Eddie is irrevocably decent. They are a match made in heaven, if they can survive hell.

Join them for the eighth installment in the popular and exciting Big Uneasy series!

My Review:

Wow, this romantic mystery set on heart on fire. I’ve heard about this funny series for months and when I got a chance to read one, I couldn’t wait. This Baker family is a hoot!

The characters, no matter which side of the law they’re on, are quirky, imaginative, and humorous. I like Audrey immensely. Her truthful nature brings a fresh view on life. She doesn’t shy away from anything which added an unfiltered perspective. Her falling for a firefighter is priceless and full of irony. She makes the perfect addition to the Baker clan.

The romance is understated and well-written. It’s written with realism and unfolds as a romance should. The romantic subplot ebbs and flows bringing two unlikely people together.

The mystery subplot is expertly written and draws the read into the story. There are a few twists I didn’t expect. Well done by the author.

Overall, this book is a humorous romantic mystery I recommend. Escape from the everyday blahs to the big uneasy.

My Rating: 5 stars
