The blockbuster conclusion to the bestselling Sunshine Vicram trilogy

"Laugh-out-loud funny, intensely suspenseful, page-turning fun." —New York Times bestselling author Allison Brennan

Some people greet the day with open arms. Sheriff Sunshine Vicram would rather give it a hearty shove and get back into bed, because there’s just too much going on right now. There’s a series of women going missing, and Sunny feels powerless to stop it. There’s her persistent and awesomely-rebellious daughter Auri, who’s out to singlehandedly become Del Sol’s youngest and fiercest investigator. And then there’s drama with Levi Ravinder—the guy she’s loved and lusted after for years. The guy who might just be her one and only. The guy who comes from a family of disingenuous vipers looking to oust him—and Sunshine—for good.

Like we said, the new day can take a hike.

Compulsively readable, laugh-out-loud funny, and brimming with big-hearted characters, A Hard Day for a Hangover will have readers cheering to the very last page.

"Fans will be delighted." -Publishers Weekly

Thank you for this ARC!!!

Being a die hard Darynda fan - I was super excited for this book! Then I saw the "last in a series". So sad.

This book - as all the others she's given us - has all the sass, charm, with and wisdom that we expect and love. The multiple - but overlapping cases and the back story romance make this a fun, read in one night page turner.

My only question is what now?? We need more!

I adore this series, in fact I adore all of Jones's writing but there is something about this series that I absolutely can't get enough of. I was so eager for this new installment and I both tried to savor it and read as quickly as I could.
It did not disappoint and reminded me all over again why Jones's is one of my most favorite authors and why I love this series and all it's quirky characters so very much. It truly has it all and I can't get enough of it.

Can we just agree that it’s NEVER a good day for a hangover?🤣. My only hangover today is a book hangover. I absolutely love this Sunshine Vicram series and this was the last and final book 😭😭😭. Please Darynda Jones I need more Sunny and Levi, I need that camping trip.

If you haven’t read this series yet, why the heck not?!?! There’s mystery, drama, romance, humour and a loveable/quirky cast of characters that I just can’t get enough of. Like I said, super bummed this is the last book.

Set in a small village in New Mexico, Sheriff Vicram is dealing with a series of women who have gone missing, trying to keep her teenage daughter out of trouble and out of her police cases as well as all the drama with Levi whom she’s been in love with since forever. I’m not going to say much more on the plot because each book is connected and nobody likes spoilers. So you definitely need to start with book one, totally worth it BTW 😉. My only gripe would be that I wish the book was another 50 pages longer for maybe an epilogue? Everything was tied up well, I just needed more. I can see myself rereading these books at some point, they’re like a comfort food and so good for my soul.

This is it! Mystery, emotion, friendship, secrets revealed, and non-stop action. And a good dose of humor and heat! You can't go wrong, a super end to a rollicking trilogy!

Darynda Jones doesn't let you down on this book. I love the interaction with all the characters. This book has humor, snarky remarks, love, and family. Am I hoping this series continues. Sunshine is a great role model for women.

Okay, this series has quickly become one of my favorites! I feel as if I am also best friends with the characters and we get to share witty banter. In addition to this, I can't look away from the plot - which is character driven - because I just need to know what happens next in this ridiculously fun town. I'm crossing my fingers for another book that will sweep me back into Del Sol, New Mexico!

Another great book by Darynda Jones! I really love this series and look forward to reading the next book. Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for the advance copy.

Wow, just wow! First of all, I received an advance reader copy of this book in exchange for an honest review of the same. I can honestly say that my review would be the same no matter how I got the book. Really enjoyed this book. Everything came to light in this book and all was revealed. I don’t want to spoil anything but if you read the first two books, you have to read this one. I will just say that Sunshine begins to remember more from her past.

Amazing as usual. How does Darynda Jones constantly write such entertaining books? The third Sunshine book is as good if not better than the last two and as good as the Charley books. A great read.

WOW,! This newest addition to the Sunshine universe is so full of twists and turns, it keeps the reader on his/her toes. I love this series, as much or more than the Charlie Davidson series, and that is saying a lot. I read that this is the final book, I sincerely hope not. So much is going on in this story, it is such a thrilling read and there are so many laughs included, one of my favorite laughs:
“Keep your marriage fresh by writing each other love notes like, “I considered smothering you with a pillow last night but didn’t.”
Love this book, a definite addition to your TBR List.

I love this series. It is definitely a must read for Gilmore Girls fan. I love the relationship between Auri and Sunshine. The same banter, sarcasm and sass. Sunshine and Levi are still terrfic together... I just wish that they have even more scenes together. This book finally answers a lot of the questions from the earlier books too. It's a fun and romantic read.

Thanks to the publisher for the arc.
