Burn One Down
by Jeffrey A. Cooper
on Tour June 11 - July 13, 2018
Retiring thief Jack Apple is offered a low-risk, six-figure payout to heist a medical marijuana dispensary from the feisty and impetuous Diane Thomas after Diane steals the robbery plans from her shady ex-husband Alvin, hoping to beat him to the score.
Diane promises to stay out of Jack’s way but she can’t help interfering, forcing them to take hostages inside the dispensary when the robbery is interrupted by law enforcement, inciting a media circus that deteriorates into a full-on urban riot.
To escape, Jack and Diane must negotiate the hostages, their agendas, an army of Sheriff’s deputies, the tenacious local news media, crooked deals, corrupt politicians, rioters, Diane’s shady ex-husband Alvin, and their growing attraction to each other.
This little ditty about Jack and Diane is a fast-paced read that finds a few new wrinkles in a familiar genre. ~ Kirkus Review

Robbing a pot warehouse run by your ex-husband, what could go wrong? Everything!
OMG. Burn One Down is a hilarious romp that will have readers wiping tears from their eyes!
Jack and Diane are "losers". Yet, they are loveable "losers". They can't do anything right but yet I can't help but cheer for them. Diane is a bit of a surprise (in a god day). She is not happy just being a trophy wife. Yeah, her idea of robbing her ex did not go as planned but at least she had a plan. It is kind of a wonder that Jack had not found himself in more trouble previously. I do have a theory that it probably is due to the fact that he usually works alone. It goes to show that sometimes working alone is a good thing.
There were too many good moments in this book to pick. It is always a good thing when I have a fun time reading a book with characters that stick with me.
