I freely chose to review this ARC from an unknown author, I am glad I took the chance as this book is hilarious! Chanel Smith opened her big mouth and told her sleazy boss's husband that she was joining the police department in order to escape his unwanted advances, and naturally living in a small country town the word spread like wildfire! Returning home, her mum told her how proud she was of her as word had reached her mum before she could explain. In allof her life she'd yearned for this so now to apply.

Just her luck there was a need for female officer and now she couldn't tell the truth because the whole town was there to send her off! Suddenly overwhelmed with the town's love she was on her way to make the town proud of her unknowing the trouble she'd get into on her first day there...

Ms. Usher spins a roaring good book as Chanel encounters drag queens, gay women, and even a murderer. ( )

This Australian crime comedy begins in the near future when a female police officer who is the main character (Chanel Smith) discovers the dead body of a woman. From there, it goes back to telling of how Chanel went from being a small town hairdresser to becoming a big city career cop. ...

Chanel lies to get away from her boss' groping husband and finds herself in the Police Academy. She goofs up a lot but is determined to find the serial killer on the loose in King's Cross.

This was one of the funniest cozy mysteries have a read. I laughed until the tears rolled down my cheeks. Chanel may not be the best cop but she is determined to do her best while finding out her mother is more than she ever thought. I figured out the murderer about halfway through (what a shock!) but I wanted to find out how Chanel came to the same suspect.

If the rest of the series is as good, I am going to have a blast with Chanel. ( )
