    Twila Taunton has just moved back to her home town of Quisby, Alabama. She is starting up her own detective agency/ real estate office. Recently having her mother murdered, Twila’s main goal...use her detective skills and discover the murder’s identity. Twila and her side kick, Scratch, scourer the surrounding areas for clues in the unsolved murder. Her investigation stirs up some trouble and now, her and her family are being threatened...which only tells Twila she’s getting close to the truth.Somehow each clue that is uncovered leads to multiple murders in this little Alabama town. Facing down unknown assailants, marriage proposals and other propositions...Twila must carefully arrange to keep everyone safe and solve the mystery before some one else is murdered. Kick Assitude was a fun and enjoyable read. Twila is a self proclaimed “redneck” and watching her navigate through her world was extremely entertaining. No this isn’t one of my normal paranormal read, although there is talk of ghosts :D, I really found following Twila through her adventure very pleasurable. Trish Jackson created a strong connection between me the reader and her characters. Speaking of characters, I have to say Aunt Essie was brilliant! I’m hoping there will be more fabulous adventures with Twila...especially with that ending!This copy of Kick Assitude was provided by Trish Jackson in exchange for an honest review. This book will be available in March of 2013.

    I don’t often read romantic suspense. I’m struggling to think of a time when I read a book about a redneck detective. So, it’s safe to say that it’s a bit of a departure from my usual read.Kick Assitude follows the adventures of Twila Taunton, redneck and detective, when she returns to her home town to find out who killed her mother. In the meantime, she’s trying to establish her PI business and resolve her commitment issues. As the mystery progresses, the body count mounts. It’s a sort of Nancy Drew meets Dukes of Hazard. There’s adventure, a complex mystery, romance (who doesn’t like a hot cowboy or two?), motorbikes and some very funny secondary characters. Harley riding, weed smoking, incontinent when frightened, Aunt Essie was my personal favourite. Twila herself is a straight talking, no nonsense sort of person. Both ladies have plenty of kick-assitude.This is a good fun book. If flesh eating hogs and grannies weeing themselves is your sort of humour (it is mine), then you’ll really enjoy it. Thank you to Uncial Press for a review copy in exchange for an honest review.

    A fun edition to Jackson’s Redneck P.I. Adventure SeriesBeing that I sincerely enjoyed reading Capricorn Cravings by author Trish Jackson, I decided that I’d also read her another of her books: Kick Assitude. From everything that I’d read, this title seemed to promise a fun read; and being an animal lover, I also couldn't not read a tale which included a pig named ‘Piggy-Sue.’Several weeks ago, while on a five hour fight, I was finally able to open Kick Assitude and ‘relax with a good book.’ And it was a good book too; fun, interesting and boasting an unsolved murder case for all you mystery lovers.Premise: Twila Taunton has finally returned to the town of Quisby, Alabama after being away for several years. Having recently discovered her potential as a Private Investigator, she decided to return and open her own P.I. firm.Growing up in Quisby, Twila knows the town is rife with unsolved cases from way back when. She’s also certain that she can successfully provide P.I. aid to the Quisby Police Department, the Attorney Firms as well as the local individuals.However, Twila has a ‘hidden’ agenda too. She yearns to uncover the truth behind her mother’s unsolved murder; to see the killer caught and justice for the crime meted out.As Twila investigates the murder, she keeps finding clues that seem to point to it having been part of larger, more sinister activities; activities that certain unknown-to-her individuals are intent on keeping hidden. After receiving multiple, variously phrased, death-threats Twila realizes that she needs to change her strategy; otherwise she too may wind up in an early grave.And that's all I’m giving you... If you enjoy detective/murder mysteries/thrillers then chances are that you’ll enjoy Kick Assitude. Jackson has always had an easy-to-read writing style, and in this book (true to form) she’s also created characters that are quite relatable. After all, who doesn’t have (or hasn’t had) that cantankerous parent/grandparent, the wild and/or crazy non-parental family member? Who hasn’t at some point in their life run into that overly secretive person; the one that makes you question what ‘dark’ deeds they are capable of committing? And, ‘Piggy-Sue aside, what pet owner hasn’t experienced and/or shared a life with that ‘too intelligent for their own good’ four legged member of the family...In summary, Kick Assitude is a fun and interesting sequel to Jackson’s Redneck P.I. Adventure Series. I look forward to reading the future books in this series.

    I won Kick Assitude here on Goodreads. When I got then book I didn't realize that it was a second book in a (hopefully) series. Even though I hadn't read the first book this one filled me in without it being an information dump for someone that had read the first one.Here is the blurb about the book: Small town redneck P.I. Twila Taunton is hell-bent on solving her mother's murder. Accompanied by her canine companion, she follows the trail of a cold murder case and discovers a secret code on the skeletal remains--Cyder Hill 1952. Sexy cowboy Tanner Ferrano makes a concerted effort to seduce her and drive a wedge into her relationship with long distance boyfriend, hunky Harland O'Connor. When hard-drinking, weed-smoking Great Aunt Essie cracks the code, they head to a haunted mansion in the dead of night, mindful of the man-eating wild boars that patrol the grounds... Twila is not certain whether she'll succumb to Tanner's advances or end up rolling in the hay with Harland. She does know one thing, though. It's gonna be wild and passionate. I liked most of the book. Once I started I had to finish.I was unsure of who the murderers were until the end. I also liked how Ms.Jackson didn't make Twila out to be a "Saint" in her love life nor did she make a umm what is the word I am looking for..I will go with promiscuous. Twila is what you see is what get type of woman. She is stubborn,loyal,strong and smart. She gets in a little overhead and knows when she needs to call for backup. If you like a want a book with a good southern girl,beer drinking weed smoking Harley riding Aunt,an adorable pup named Scratch and a mystery to solve well your search is over.

    Kick AssitudeByTrish JacksonTwila Taunton and her boyfriend Harland O'Connor drive their Harleys from Boston, Massachusetts back to her redneck hometown of Quisby, Alabama. Things were going okay in Boston until she loses her job for exposing her boobs to a nerd coworker, gets shot at, blown up by a bomb blast, attacked and kidnapped. On the upside, she realizes she has a real bent as a private investigator and hopes to solve her mama’s murder while in Quisby.Uncle Pervis helps set her up in her old real estate office where she intends to handle both jobs. Harland heads off to Nebraska to visit his parents. Twila moves back into her unrented trailer and accepts her uncle's gift of his old red Dodge. He just can't envision her taking clients house hunting on the Harley.P.I. business picks up quickly thanks to an attorney friend, cold cases at the Police Department — not her favorite place; but mostly from the gossiping women in Quisby, the ‘Peyton Place’ of the South. She's all set for crime, murder and mayhem. One of the three may fall upon the head of Jimmie-Ray who left her at the altar and took off and married a Yankee girl, and is now back in Quisby, which makes Twila’s livid. By the end of her first day Twila has Zeb Walton, a grumpy grey bearded man who’s searching for the lotto money his mother hid before going missing or dead, Velda’s husband M.J. who was murdered, and her own mama’s murder to solve. Plus she has an assistant, a puppy she names Scratch who pawed at her door all night during a horrendous thunderstorm. The pup adopts her, refusing to take no for an answer.Twila snooping around doesn't go unnoticed in the small town. She takes it in stride until threatened by a man in black unrecognizable except for a tattoo above his wrist — a skull. She doesn't take it seriously until Scratch disappears from her truck during church. A piece of paper saying she was warned — and next time it won't be a dog-- is left on the front seat.Author Trish Jackson tells this often hysterical story with straight tongue-in-cheek humor, making it even funnier. The dialect is subtle with just the right touch for a redneck southern gal. Her novel is fast-paced with action on almost every page. Jackson has the knack for pulling the reader right into the book; fitting into this small crazy town and its characters — and they are characters! The outrageous ending will send the reader off to continue Twila's new career in her other ‘P. I. Redneck’ novels. This book is highly recommended as an enjoyable five-star novel.Micki Peluso: writer, journalist, and author of . . . And the Whippoorwill Sang
