Deep Fried and Pickled is by far the most intriguing and hilarious read that anyone will get their hands on. Paisley Ray has the talent that shines through every page. Her main character, Rachael, is a young woman who strives to go to college away from her parents prying eyes. She hopes to earn her degree in art history, to have fun, and to maybe find a guy worthy for her. But that all of that is soon not her only worries, things are going on at her college, and her dad calls to inform her that her mother has left her dad to pursue a physic calling. Never did Rachel think that her mother would leave her dad to do something so ridiculous. Rachael’s first year away at college proves anything but boring. Besides what else can happen?
Paisley Ray’s debut novel, Deep Friend and Pickled is the best chic lit mystery and romance I have ever read. She keeps you in suspense as to who and what is going on next and then she surprises you. Little does Rachael know that she will get a romance after all and maybe solve a mystery using her art history skills. I choose this novel, not just because the story sounded interesting but because the genres were something I liked to read. Instantly, I feel in love with Paisley Ray’s stunning yet moving plot and her characters. But most of all, Rachael. Rachael is my new favorite character. I can’t wait to read more by this talented writer and what her next masterpiece entails. A bright and highly entertaining way to start out a new series. Overall, I both recommend this novel to everyone and give it a five out of five stars.
