Early Review: A Bad For Sunshine by Darynda Jones

Mar 28, 2020

New York Times bestselling author Darynda Jones is back with the first novel in the brand-new snarky, sassy, wickedly fun Sunshine Vicram seriesA Bad Day for Sunshine!

Sheriff Sunshine Vicram finds her cup o’ joe more than half full when the small village of Del Sol, New Mexico, becomes the center of national attention for a kidnapper on the loose.
Del Sol, New Mexico is known for three things: its fry-an-egg-on-the-cement summers, its strong cups of coffee—and a nationwide manhunt? Del Sol native Sunshine Vicram has returned to town as the elected sheriff—an election her adorably meddlesome parents entered her in—and she expects her biggest crime wave to involve an elderly flasher named Doug. But a teenage girl is missing, a kidnapper is on the loose, and all of it's reminding Sunny why she left Del Sol in the first place. Add to that trouble at her daughter’s new school and a kidnapped prized rooster named Puff Daddy, and Sunshine has her hands full.
Enter sexy almost-old-flame Levi Ravinder and a hunky US Marshal, both elevens on a scale of one to blazing inferno, and the normally savvy sheriff is quickly in over her head. Now it’s up to Sunshine to juggle a few good hunky men, a not-so-nice kidnapping miscreant, and Doug the ever-pesky flasher. And they said coming home would be drama-free.



Amazingly wonderful! Jones delivers another fabulous series with just the right balance of comedy, mystery, and steaminess. This unique mystery is set in the town of Del Sol, filled to the brim with secrets. Whispered pasts are entrenched into this new mystery on different levels. Sunshine will have to come face to face with her past as she moves back to her hometown with her daughter. The flavor of the town weaves into this small-town mystery. It's bursting at the seams with lively characters and their stories. There is so much more to learn about Sunshine and Levi. They left me breathless each time they encountered each other. Prepare to have unexpected outbursts of laughter as you visit Del Sol and meet its residents.
