I glanced over at her. “If I was going to throw something, it would be the bread pudding. Hypothetically.”
“Don’t throw the bread pudding,” Vivvie objected vehemently. “It’s got a butter rum sauce!”
The Fixer is my third Jennifer Lynn Barnes novel and I just love the way she writes her characters. She’s really gifted at juggling different personalities and keeping minor characters interesting rather than bland, flat characters. Cover is linked to Goodreads.
From my review:
“Tess Kendrick has been hiding the fact that her grandfather has Alzheimer’s, but taking care of the farm and keeping his debilitating health a secret is getting harder and harder. When Tess’ sister, Ivy, shows up, her secret is exposed and despite her objections, she’s forced to move across the country to D.C. Tess’ new school, Hardwicke, is home to children of politicians and other Washington elite. Her sister, Ivy is a ‘fixer’, the one bureaucrats call when they want to sweep a scandal under the rug. When her fellow classmates begin looking to her to solve their problems, Tess is suddenly pulled into Ivy’s world. She discovers a political conspiracy that leaves a high-ranking member of the government dead and no one, not even her sister, is above suspicion.” Find my full review here.
