Summer Book Review #6

Title: Mad Mouse: A John Ceepak Mystery
By: Chris Grabenstein
Pages: 320

Book Description:
It’s almost Labor Day, and the end of summer could mean the end of someone’s life in this exciting sequel to Chris Grabenstein’s Tilt-a-Whirl.

Young Danny Boyle, the part-time summer cop “down the shore” in Sea Haven, New Jersey, gets taken on a wild ride when he and his longtime beach buddies become the unwitting targets of a mad-man’s twisted scheme for revenge. Fortunately, John Ceepak, the cop with a soldier’s unshakeable code of honor, stays at Danny’s side to help him negotiate the quick twists and turns that threaten to destroy his life, his friends, and everything about the world he loves. Whipping from the boardwalk to the beach and back again, Mad Mouse keeps zigging and zagging at a breakneck pace, all the way to the surprising finish.

What I thought:
I finished Love You to Death 10 minutes before I was about to board my plane so I made a mad dash to the overpriced gift shop and quickly picked out a book. I was worried becuase I didn't really have time to decided if i would even like this book. I however did. I think I have been reading out of my comfort zone lately - that is, I'm not picking my typically style of book. I was pleasantly satisfied with this book. It is about a couple of cops solving a mystery. It wasn't and "OMG you have to read this book." But it was good, and kept me reading to find out what happened. I also enjoyed reading the light "cop stuff" considering I'm a Criminal Justice major and hope to be in the field one day.

Halfway though the book I realized it was part of a series. I missed that part on the back of the book. It seemed okay though, I was able to pick up on everything. I just have added two more books to my "list."


  1. Hmmm, guess who was reading "light cop stuff" about your age! lol Now doesn't that just thrill you?!
