A Hard Day for a Hangover by Darynda Jones

Some people greet the day with open arms. Sheriff Sunshine Vicram would rather give it a hearty shove and get back into bed. Available wherever books are sold: 12/06/22.

The blockbuster conclusion to the bestselling Sunshine Vicram trilogy

Some people greet the day with open arms. Sheriff Sunshine Vicram would rather give it a hearty shove and get back into bed, because there’s just too much going on right now. There’s a series of women going missing, and Sunny feels powerless to stop it. There’s her persistent and awesomely-rebellious daughter Auri, who’s out to singlehandedly become Del Sol’s youngest and fiercest investigator. And then there’s drama with Levi Ravinder—the guy she’s loved and lusted after for years. The guy who might just be her one and only. The guy who comes from a family of disingenuous vipers looking to oust him—and Sunshine—for good.

Like we said, the new day can take a hike.

Compulsively readable, laugh-out-loud funny, and brimming with big-hearted characters, A Hard Day for a Hangover will have readers cheering to the very last page.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

A Hard Day for a Hangover is the third book in the Sunshine Vicram series and the previous book left us with a bit of a cliffhanger, so I’ve been really looking forward to seeing what was going to happen next between Sunshine and Levi.

A Hard Day for a Hangover is hugely entertaining. From the mystery of who stabbed the town flasher with a knitting needle to who broke into a little old lady’s house, the escape of a prisoner and, more seriously, the case of an unidentified teenage girl left for dead on the side of a mountain, there is never a dull moment. The book combines humour, clever mysteries, loveable, quirky characters, and a dose of action and danger. I’m completely in love with Sunshine, Levi, Auri, and the people of Del Sol and I didn’t want the book to end. There is still more to learn about these people and I’m dying to spend more time with Auri and Cruz and see their teenage romance play out. I hope that the author is going to give us more stories from this town because this has been one of the best series I’ve ever read and I want more.

Book three in the Sunshine Vicram series, A Hard Day for a Hangover, was as good, if not better than the first two!

Sheriff Sunshine and the law enforcement officers responsible for the safety of Del Sol, New Mexico are in the middle of a situation.

Actually, make that a few situations... such as the resident flasher being stabbed and an inmate escaping. Can't forget to mention the discovery of a body in the desert, which leads to a full-fledged investigation. This story doesn't pick up steam as it goes – it's fully charged from the get-go!

Wait, I can't leave out Auri, the teen wiz! The junior investigator who has such an amazing heart and sarcastic approach (my fav). She is such an incredible character, smart and young. This story really is Auri's but I will let you find out for yourself.

I love this town and its quirkiness, I adore Sunshine and her attitude, but I really appreciate Levi Ravinder and all that he brings to the table. This series just sucks you in. I was laughing, crying, laugh-crying, and cheering for the good guys. You never know what's going to happen, but somehow it all makes sense and leaves me wanting more!

This is the third book in the series, and I would highly recommend that you read them in order. In fact, I would do more than that – you NEED to read them in order. If you are not up to date, then please go back and enjoy all the fabulousness that is Sunshine, Auri, and Levi from the very beginning.

As sad as I was that this was the conclusion of the trilogy, I could not help but hide away and read it from beginning to end in almost one sitting/lying. It is really great to be back with the madness, to get some answers for Sunshine, some happiness for her family's future, and some mystery solving along the way – in no small part, in the hands of Auri.

I am loathed to reveal any more, but I can say that I fell straight back into their world and enjoyed every minute, laughed, may have shed a tear or two, and was delighted as it all pulled together and went just where every invested reader would wish.

I have pencilled in a couple of days in the Christmas holidays to read all three back to back – because who doesn't like Sunshine in their lives?
