Paisley Ray books are not your typical fiction. A young woman’s plan for an art history degree turns into an outrageous series of misadventures in this laugh-out-loud romp about a girl who enrolls in a southern college during the height of the crazy era that was the 1980’s. This collection crosses genres of chick lit, mystery, romance, humor, and action with the possibility of a corpse or two. To date there are 8 novels in this humorous romantic misadventure mystery series with book #9 due to release spring of 2016.
It’s ’86, the era of Pop Rocks, Jelly shoes, and big hair rock bands. Rachael O’Brien’s freshman plan seems simple: Attend a southern college, earn a degree, party, and meet cute guys—hopefully acing the latter two.
But being threatened by a jealous She-Devil, avoiding the advances of a thirty-something redneck, and discovering an art fraud scheme thwart her “to do” list. On top of her troubles at school, Rachael finds herself forging a new relationship with her emotionally shaken father after Mom abandons the family to pursue a psychic calling.
Bad decision-making, law-bending behavior, and surprise romances make freshman year memorable in Paisley Ray’s DEEP FRIED AND PICKLED.
“I often get asked by readers what order THE RACHAEL O’BRIEN CHRONICLES books should be read in. Each book can be read without any prior knowledge of any of the others. That said, some readers do want to follow a chronological list of events in Rachael’s southern fried, 80’s college life antics so here it is”…..

“The Rachael O’Brien Chronicles” have been around for quite a while now, but I just picked up book 1. And I’m really glad I did.
This first installment introduces Rachael in 1986, when she has the intention of earning a degree in Art History. Of course, partying and meeting boys is also a big part of the agenda. There’s a lot of fun along the way, especially from the situations that come up as a consequence of misunderstandings and things just not working out as planned. And to top it off, there is even a mystery to solve.
The book is really a fun read, from the perspective of young Rachael, and not only the situations, but also the writing style had me laughing all the way through. Bits like the “Bar Brawl Bitches” and Hugh’s “poop-colored rusted Datsun” is a throwback to a sense of humor that I hadn’t read in a long time.
The even better new is, I now have another seven books to dig into.
I received this book to review through Beck Valley Books Book Tours, all the opinions above are 100% my own.
