Early Review: Chasing The Skip by Janci Patterson

Chasing the Skip by Janci Patterson
Publisher: Henry Holt & Co.
Publication Date: October 2, 2012
Number of Pages: 240
Book Format: ARC
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I received this book from DAC ARC Tours for an honest review.

The reason I decided I wanted to read this book Is because I love watching TV shows about bounty hunters so I figured I would enjoy books about them too and boy was I right! Ricki is a 15 year old girl and one day her mom just up and leaves her. Now this isn’t totally uncommon because her mom disappears a lot but what’s different about this time is that her mother doesn’t come back this time and Ricki ends up having to tag along with her dad who just happens to be a bounty hunter!

I really enjoyed this book because you didn’t have to be bored through all kinds of back information, the book jumps right into the story and gives you information about the past as you go which I really like because it gives you a mix of both past and current.

Imagine one day your mom just up and leaves you and you suddenly have to go live with your dad who you haven’t seen in years and he just happens to be a bounty hunter. Yeah, I would feel like the world is ending and my life is over but Ricki just dealt with it like a champ. She liked being with her dad because she hadn’t seen him in so long but she’s also really upset with him for not being around for her.

There wasn’t much romance in this book, and even when there was it wasn’t that great because it kind of seemed like Ricki was almost being raped because she was enjoying it at first but then she got all scared and tried to run away so I didn’t much care for that but it was only a tiny part in the book so it didn’t factor too much in my rating.

I really enjoyed Ian’s character probably because I’m a sucker for a bad boy and you can tell I am because I fell for his tricks throughout the whole book too it was pretty bad I felt dumb when I finished reading and I wasn’t even the one chasing after him!

Overall Janci Patterson did a great job keeping bounty hunting in words interesting which you think would be hard but again she did an awesome job because this book was like a breeze which is something I really needed, 4 out of 5 stars is my rating!

  1. Eh it sounds like an interesting concept but it seems like something just didn't work. If the couple is constantly around each other and trying to be near each other then there should have been a better romance going on. I'm a romance girl so the fact the romance fell flat sounds like this book isn't for me but I'm glad you enjoyed it!

    Thanks for the great review.


I love to hear from you guys so leave as many as your heart desires =)
