investigation that uncovers a grand conspiracy that has implications for the future of the whole town. A secret that certain people are prepared to kill to protect! Before long, his identity is at risk......along with his sanity.
Fresh Squeezed comes described as a cross between the likes of authors such as Carl Hiaasen, Elmore Leonard, and Tim Dorsey but seeing as how I have never read any of these authors, I came in to this not sure what to expect. What I got was an okay read that seemed a bit too over-complicated and convoluted. High points for me included an incredibly inept hit-man who comes to the town and his hilarious efforts to take out his three intended targets.....low points included the length. For me, this book started to drag on and out stayed its welcome and I found the over involved plot a little too much at times!
Overall, this was an okay read but nothing to write home about. It had some very funny moments and Juice was quite engaging as a character but, as a whole, I was left feeling a bit drained after wading through this novel and its more-complicated-than-it-needed-to-be plot.
