Big Apple Hunter

Review of Maddie Cochere’s novel Big Apple Hunter

In Big Apple Hunter, Susan decides to go on a trip with her friend Darby to New York City. I love the character of Darby and his friendship with Susan. I admit at one point I was hoping for them to get together. But, as we know, well…you must read the first book, Sunshine Hunter, to find out what makes their friendship just friends.

I think setting one of the scenes in New York made the story line even more exciting and adventurous. I so loved the bus tour of men. Who wouldn’t want to tour with a bunch of hot guys?

I liked the mystery of the bad guys. It kept me guessing what their angle was clear through the book. There was enough mystery to keep me reading and wanting to know the answer.

The ongoing turmoil with her boyfriend makes me wonder if they will last as a couple. I keep thinking maybe they can’t get past their previous relationship disasters. All of Susan’s encounters with available men adds to the question of whether they will stay together. I like that with each book you just don’t know.

All the characters are interesting and likeable. I had all kinds of ideas going through my head about what each character might end up doing throughout the book.  It keeps you assuming things to the end. I believe that is what makes a good book.

I loved the ending. 🙂 Just read it, no spoilers from me.

I love the author’s style, it is witty, adventurous, and easy to read. The characters are like everyday people with added adventures.  She leaves the ending at a point I am ready to read the next book. 🙂

I see with each book where her writing becomes better and better. I like being able to see her grow as a writer. I believe that is what is so interesting about self-published authors, you can see their writing develop with each book. Thank goodness for the internet.

Check out her blog! She has her own witty adventures that will make you smile. 🙂


I am a writer and an artist, at least in my mind. :) I love to read!

    1. Thank you for the kind words. It is a good book. I try to review here and there on the books I read. I do a short review on all the books I read through Goodreads. I am glad it lifted your day. It may be awhile on reading my books…lol…slow at editing.

    I had such a nice surprise today. Julia at *Jwls Mac Ray, 2BCreative* reviewed my second book, Big Apple Hunter. If you have time, hop on over to read the review, and look around while you’re there, too. She’s one of my favorite bloggers!
