Laugh out loud, over and over again. Robin Alexander’s Rusty Logic is filed with zany characters, which are anything but normal and chock-full of hilariousness. Robin Alexander is hands down one of my absolute favorite writers, she always writes a great story, and Rusty Logic is no exception.
Rusty Martinez is a thirty-eight year old CEO of a super successful company that delivers grocery’s to its patrons. She started this company with her high-school friend, and has shed blood, sweat and tears to make their company prosperous. Her hard work has cost her though, she has no life outside the business and Rusty recently suffered a stress induced heart attack. This workaholic, control freak is forced by her business partner/best friend, to take a sabbatical to Ancelet Bay, a sleepy town two hours from her company’s home base in Baton Rouge.
Kirsten Flyte is the police chief of the Ancelet Bay. She is a kind, thoughtful woman who is used to dealing with the peculiar folks that reside in her hometown. Kirsten has followed in her father’s footsteps in becoming the chief of police, the first woman to do so, and she is an absolute thorn in the town’s shady mayor’s side. She also has a peeping tom to catch that is causing a ruckus all over the town. If she wasn’t already busy enough, she now has Rusty to deal with.
The cast of characters in this book is what makes it a really good read. Stella, Rusty’s new next door neighbor is absolutely gut-busting funny. She easily is the best character of this book. She delivers one liners that literally made me laugh like a hyena. Rusty and Kirsten’s romance is a slow one, but not in a bad way, it was nice. Did it make me swoon, well no, but Rusty Logic is really good but it does swing to more of a comedy than overall romance. Was it worth the price and my time? Absofreakinglutely!
