I just finished Repo Girl. It is by a local author and it is always fun to read a book where you are familiar with the locations. But , in addition to THAT, Repo Girl was really good!
Andrea Sloan switched from being a waitress to a Repo Agent to make more money. She has only been doing it for a few weeks, but she is really good at it and things are looking up.
That is, until the car she has just repossessed crashes into a deer. The resulting accident flings the previously unseen dead body from the back seat into Andrea's lap. The naked and bloody dead body. While fumbling with the seat belt, she ends up touching the gun that was jammed between the seats. When the cops show up she is covered in the victim's blood and her prints are the only ones on the gun.
Naturally, she is arrested for the murder. Her bail is exhorbitant and paid by a shady character as a favor to her boss. It seems that she is the only suspect, so Andrea has to find the killer before the trial. She also needs to find a thumb drive that the victim had in his possession and that has disappeared. Returning it to The Broker is the only way she has to pay her share of the bail.
I liked her friends, I liked her spirit, I liked this book.
I particularly like that Jane Fenton has a second book coming out soon. I can't wait to see what trouble she gets into next.
