I received this book free to read and review.
When I started reading this book I thought it was almost going to be the autobiography of a "Town Clerk" where there was plenty of fine descriptions and plenty of character development but very little happened. I was however very wrong and although written in a "gentle" style by the end of the book there had been, fraud a number of attempted murders and a murder not to mention a disastrous flood . This is not one of those books where the central character suddenly becomes a super sleuth, in fact she does not actually solve anything, it just happens around her. So although not the sort of book I would call an exciting page turner it certainly has a lot going for it. I particularly liked the portrayal of Mr Triggers who was continually harassing the clerk to have dunes built (Sea defenses) by the end I was feeling quite sorry for him until there was another complete twist to the story.
Well worth a read.

I read a lot of books and this is the worst I've read for a long time. I got to a third through before giving it up as a bad job. It is a story about civil servants, I suspect it is written by a current or ex civil servant because it is so boring it has civil servant written all over it. Another review gave this book 4 stars - totally deluded! Don't waste your time!

3.0 out of 5 stars Might be Entertaining 4 July 2014
By drkhimxz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
An odd sort of book. Not much of a mystery; more in line with a thriller, yet the most thrilling events have nothing to do with mystery or suspense. I suppose the best handle for it, is the one which used to be one of the standard subgenres, Damsel in Distress. No doubt this single (because divorced) mother has problems. She is facing a tough job situation in which things are happening which make life very difficult, even threatening; she has an infant and no man in her life, she is an object to whom political forces appear hostile, and her life is not only man-less but dependent on her parents in significant ways. The author builds up to the action slowly, with many diversions into home life (or, perhaps, better said, home life and personal difficulties are intensified because of on-the-job problems). One feels the author has not decided whether the suspenseful or the personal situations should dominate, thereby diffusing the impact of each. Of course, into all this comes the Great Storm which may be interesting to those who experienced it, but, once more, softens the impact of the other story elements. Finally, the Big Scene which has been adumbrated, but is not, logically, the one that should have occurred, to have the most literary significance.
On the other hand, one does grow attached to the young woman despite a good measure of soppiness in her delineation. That, in addition to some aspects of her friendships, and the absence of some obvious romantic possibilities, does make reading the book a more positive experience than I would have expected, given its defects.
All-in-all, I cannot be confident that my star rating has any meaning: it is the kind of book, I suppose, which is heavily dependent on the mood in which it is read and one's personal reactions to the disjointed organization.

4.0 out of 5 stars First in a Fun Series! 24 Mar. 2015
By c-lu - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
As the Municipal Clerk, Chelsey has to deal with all the customers who come into the office and answer to the mayor and other town officials. Robert Triggers is a major problem. He wants dunes put in near his house so that if there is a storm, his house won't wash away. He screams, yells, and causes all sorts of trouble. In the meantime, there are things going wrong, falling apart at the office, and Chelsey, along with her co-worker, are besides themselves trying to get the ballots all set for the election. Not that there was any doubt that Frita O'Donnell would be re-elected. As Chelsey tries to keep things together at the office, she is arrested and charged with embezzlement. Then Agent Sal Romero and Tex come into the story. Life as a municipal clerk is less than simple and at the same time friends and family are pressuring Chelsey to have more of a life. Along with all the problems, there are many humorous moments, mostly between Chelsey and Bonnie. Whether you've already read TAX CUTS (the second in the series) or COMMUNITY AFFAIRS or not, I'd recommend RED TAPE!

4.0 out of 5 stars look past the cover for a good read 11 Feb. 2016
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
you can't judge a book by it's cover! sometimes my kindle doesn't show the cover of books. when that happens i can read the description and reviews, but can't see an image of the cover. that's what happened when i bought this book. i liked the description so i gave it a shot, it was priced low enough that if i didn't like it it wasn't a big deal. i started reading it and immediately liked the setting, the characters were relatable. It was a fun read. When i eventually saw the cover I knew i never would have given it a try based on the cheesy, amateurish look. I'm glad i tried it, i liked the first book enough to buy the next 2. i say look past the cover and give it a try.

4.0 out of 5 stars 4 1/2 Stars 14 Sept. 2015
By T.O.Powell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Let's call this one 4 1/2 Stars. I liked the main character and her friends/family, and I liked how it seemed more realistic with more than only 'one' life problem to cope with. It was a little dull in places, but so is real life, and the exciting parts more than made up for it. I also loved how she and her best friend were willing to use firearms to defend themselves. That's right, in spite of what Hollywood would like you to believe there really are women who take responsibility for their own safety. Rarely do authors show the 'up' side of gun ownership, especially for women. Kudus to the author!
3.0 out of 5 stars Curious Mix of Cozy and Hardboiled 7 July 2014
By Elaine L. Orr - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I enjoyed many aspects of this book, including the intrigue in city hall. How that plays out is over the top, but that 's fiction. You don't often read books that are such a combination of cozy mystery and graphic murder. The cozy side has Chelsey's role as mom to a newborn and strong relationship with her parents. She has a genuine (and sometimes humorous) relationship with best friend Bonnie. The graphic side has violence in city hall (no spoilers) and some heavy-duty efforts to hurt Chelsey and friends. The book's most authentic element was its portrayal of life at the Jersey shore after Hurricane Sandy. I would read a cozy by this author, but would probably check first to see if it was the curious mix of cozy and hardboiled mystery. I say hardboiled for lack of a better term. There is a lot of law enforcement activity, but Chelsey isn't really a sleuth.
