Publisher Description

From the New York Times bestselling author Darynda Jones comes the second novel in her laugh-out-loud Sunshine Vicram mystery series, A Good Day for Chardonnay.

Running a small-town police force in the mountains of New Mexico should be a smooth, carefree kind of job. Sadly, full-time Sheriff—and even fuller-time coffee guzzler—Sunshine Vicram, didn’t get that memo.

All Sunshine really wants is one easy-going day. You know, the kind that starts with coffee and a donut (or three) and ends with take-out pizza and a glass of chardonnay (or seven). Turns out, that’s about as easy as switching to decaf. (What kind of people do that? And who hurt them?)

Before she can say iced mocha latte, Sunny’s got a bar fight gone bad, a teenage daughter hunting a serial killer and, oh yes, the still unresolved mystery of her own abduction years prior. All evidence points to a local distiller, a dangerous bad boy named Levi Ravinder, but Sun knows he’s not the villain of her story. Still, perhaps beneath it all, he possesses the keys to her disappearance. At the very least, beneath it all, he possesses a serious set of abs. She’s seen it. Once. Accidentally.

Between policing a town her hunky chief deputy calls four cents short of a nickel, that pesky crush she has on Levi which seems to grow exponentially every day, and an irascible raccoon that just doesn’t know when to quit, Sunny’s life is about to rocket to a whole new level of crazy.

Yep, definitely a good day for chardonnay.

Can’t wait for next book!

I just finished this book, starting it immediately following A Bad Day for Sunshine. I couldn’t put them down! The characters were charming, the plots full of twists and surprises. And, of course, the humor. Realistic? No, but definitely entertaining! Hopefully we won’t have to,wait too long for book 3. 🙏🏻

Highly recommended love story!

Loved reading the sensational and spectacular second story in the Sunshine Vicram series. When Sunshine hears Levi is seriously hurt, she rushes to his side, finds out he was defending his friend who has been rushed to the hospital, and Levi is refusing to go to the hospital. Meanwhile, Sunshine's daughter with her friends are trying to uncover a serial killer case. Read the highly recommended, wonderfully written, full of action, suspense, mystery, and romance.
