Book Review - Metro Girl


Today I am reviewing Metro Girl.  This story is about Alex Barnaby, a girl who grew up rebuilding engines in her dad's garage, but chose the safe life of an insurance adjuster until she gets a mysterious call from her fun-loving and irresponsible brother who lives in Miami.  She goes to rescue him yet again, meets Hooker, a NASCAR driver who helps her find her brother and rescue him.  They have an adventure, she loses her job and remembers what she truly loves.

I really enjoyed the Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum novels, so when I saw someone reading this it was like discovering a hidden gem.  Something new by Janet Evanovich, time I don’t have to spend waiting for her next book.  I enjoy her novels because they have good pacing and are funny.
J. Evanovich is a down to earth writer.  She writes in plain English, has great pacing, and keeps it so close to reality – even when going to the very unreal – that it’s silly.  Like Stephanie Plum always blowing up her cars, and bumbling thru her work.
This book is for someone who enjoys mystery/suspense, light reading and silliness.  J. Evanovich has been writing for years.  If you want to learn more, you can go to her website http://www.evanovich.com/.
If you enjoy this book you might want to wander to the next title in this series, Motor Mouth.  Also you can pick up the Stephanie Plum books.  I would also recommend Donna Andrews, who writes Meg Langslow books – which are even sillier.  And MC Beaton, who writes the Agatha Raisin novels and the Hamish McBeth novels.  They are mystery books and less silly but still funny and entertaining.
