Publisher Description

"Narrator Lorelei King delivers a highly enjoyable listening experience." - AudioFile Magazine A Hard Day for a Hangover is another humorous installment in Darynda Jones's wine mystery series deemed: "Laugh-out-loud funny, intensely suspenseful fun." —New York Times bestselling author Allison Brennan "Narrator Lorelei King works well with the subtly snarky style of author Darynda Jones....Listeners will look forward to the next installment of this new series, as some mysteries are solved, and others remain." —AudioFile on A Bad Day for Sunshine Some people greet the day with open arms. Sheriff Sunshine Vicram would rather give it a hearty shove and get back into bed, because there’s just too much going on right now. There’s a series of women going missing, and Sunny feels powerless to stop it. There’s her persistent and awesomely-rebellious daughter Auri, who’s out to singlehandedly become Del Sol’s youngest and fiercest investigator. And then there’s drama with Levi Ravinder—the guy she’s loved and lusted after for years. The guy who might just be her one and only. The guy who comes from a family of disingenuous vipers looking to oust him—and Sunshine—for good. Like we said, the new day can take a hike. The blockbuster conclusion to the bestselling Sunshine Vicram trilogy, A Hard Day for a Hangover will have listeners laughing and cheering to the very last page. "Fans will be delighted." —Publishers Weekly A Macmillan Audio production from St. Martin’s Press.

Luckily, her new story has more than just lipstick and a number. Prepare to get sucked in. Her writing is like a vortex; you can't get out until you're done and sobbing for more.
