Title: Cocoa and Chanel
Author: Donna Joy Usher
Review: The story takes place in New South Wales Australia and follows a young female who decides to join the NSW Police Force and follows her thru training and her first assignment. After a rocky start she becomes involved in a serial murder case which she solves. I found this to be a very humorous but still serious book. Reminded me of British humor which I really like.
I would rate it 4 stars and would read other offerings by this author.
I picked this book up at kindlebuffet.com because the synopsis appealed to my sense of humor.
Thanks Frank for this review -

Author Information: Hi there, I’m Donna Joy Usher. I started writing my first novel when I was seven. With no idea about plot or character development (I mean I was only seven) my storyline quickly disintegrated into a muddled jumble of boring dialogue between two horses. Disillusioned, I gave up writing stories for quite a while after that. Instead, I concentrated on my studies, eventually graduating as a dentist.
After many years of ‘drilling and filling’ I turned to writing in an effort to escape the seriousness of my day job. During that time I created my first book, The Seven Steps to Closure, and discovered that I love nothing more than making other people laugh. Well that, and my husband and two miniature schnauzers, Chloe and Xena.
I currently live near the beach on the beautiful New South Wales Central Coast. When I am not working or writing, I love to paddle board, walk on the beach and sip chai lattes at the local cafe.
