It’s no secret that I’m a fan of Grace Risata. She’s one vulgar lady, but she can string one hell of a great story as you can see in My Dirty Detour, Nights in the Fast Lane (my personal fav), and Ungranted Wishes. Now, My Dirty Crown is a Dirty Detour novella, and while it could be read as a standalone, I recommend you read My Dirty Detour first so you are familiar with the whole cast.
Overall Rating: 6/6 Glass Slippers
Genre: Action/Comedy Novella
Violet’s been working at the Grim Rock Distillery as their book keeper for a bit. But it’s not just the paycheck she goes in for, but her mega hot boyfriend Rocky, who brought much more adventure into Violet’s life than the mild-mannered, semi-germophobic, woman bargained for. But, the odd couple makes it work and Violets melded into Rocky’s world without too much issue.
Anyways, Violet goes into the brewery, hoping for a lovely date, but instead got roped into shopping with fellow brewery girlfriend, Irena, and anothey brewery worker named Dmitry.To keep from giving too much away, there’s a makeover, a “grizzly” stranger, a crossbow, a biker gang, some sequins, and a series of wild events that seem to find Violet wherever she goes.
As always, I was a fan of this book. It was a nice way to spend the evening, even if I cackled like a drunk witch, every other page. What was different about this one is that each chapter was from the viewpoint of different characters. You get Violet’s nervous, but vulgar, charm. You see Rocky’s protective side, along with his calculating mind. Then you see how Irena works, when she works the street in her leather pants. All in all, it was another hilarious, action-packet, ride that you won’t regret. So, keep writing, Grace, I’m waiting!
