Grand Theft Cargo - Review and Tour Dates

Idgie Says:
Within the first four chapters of this book I was pissed off at Linda. (I might have even sent her a nasty note.)To me, my emotional response shows her strength of writing characters that grab hold and don't let go. 

This novel, while having enough angsty moments to get me riled up, is a fun thrill ride of adventurous moments filled with lively characters and witty banter.  The dialogue is fun, fast and laugh out loud in spots. 

When I hit the last page I thought to myself that the story line was left open enough for a sequel so I wasn't surprised when I read afterwards that this is the first book in a series.  I will say that I quite enjoyed JoJo and her pals and welcome reading more about her in the future. 

I  can easily recommend this book.

Grand Theft Cargo
Down and Out Books
February 2017

Grand Theft Cargo is a wild ride from start to finish with a secretive highwayman, explosive house bombs, singing telegrams, flaming mice, secret cancer drugs, dead truckers, an agency that can’t be named, and enough crashes and car chases to remind you these road cowboys have no qualms crossing the zipper to walk the dog in the hammer lane.

Tenacious trucker Jojo Boudreaux and her co-driver beau Tyler Boone spend their days- and nights- delivering cargo coast to coast. Old Blue, their custom Peterbilt tractor-trailer makes the perfect home for a man who never had one and a Louisiana tomboy who thinks an oven is for storing guns. But life on the road isn’t all sing-a-longs and sunsets.

When Jojo and Boone are called in to deliver an abandoned load of high-profile pharmaceuticals to a secure warehouse, they delay their vacation for the quick, easy job with the big paycheck, forgetting that nothing quick and easy ever comes with a big paycheck.
