Jessie Adams is a part-time musician, an
alternative/indie music DJ and a sucker for blond longhaired
musicians. Her friend’s business, The Sea Shack, is being
threatened with rezoning by the local city council; she
decides to run for public office. Unfortunately, the
candidates are all being threatened. Fortunately, she has run
into (literally) tall, sexy Detective Chuck Jackson. Will she
be lucky in love or win the election?
Five O’Clock Shadow is an
amusing tale of small town politics and love. I enjoyed
reading it, but I did find that the story dragged in places
mainly due to the main character’s habit of over describing
her quirks and life in general. These descriptions could be
funny, but they did drag the book down a bit. However, that
said, it is a good book for a quiet night or day when you want
an amusing story to keep you smiling.
