Anyone who went to college back when dorms (the ALL female) ones were locked down at 11 on weekends--even earlier on weekdays will find this book refreshingly reminiscent of times gone by. Those that were lucky enough to go when the dorms were co-ed--well you are in for a great story and both will get a couple of laughs. Following the 4 Freshman girls through their first year of mishaps, looking for love in mostly the wrong places, and needing to get fake ID because you had to be 21 in order to drink--and trying to find an art thief---all while trying to get your friends through lifes little mishaps and dealing with parents. The twists and turns are various and many.

I am definitely going to continue reading this series--hey I want to know what happens in their sophomore year!!



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".....

"Being a Southern girl and child of the 80s myself, I enjoyed the characters, the setting and the period references. Good plot without being too serious or watered down."



"This fun and quirky mystery was very nostalgic for me as I got to relive the eighties through Rachael."



"An entertaining read. Fresh new characters and some zany plot twists kept me reading late into the night."

I was born in the 90s so I do not have any memory of the 80s. But Back to the Future series hype is sure what I want to be a part of the most!

Sharon Martin said...

Love the sound of this one, just the type of book you need to curl up with & enjoy!

Literary Winner said...

This series keeps popping up to me. I think it's a sign that I need to invest in this cozy series!

I enjoy a book with humor, they can be such an enjoyable read. The title made me think of food.

Scott said...

Sounds interesting to me for nothing else than the fact that I went to college in the late 80's. I'm sure I could relate to many of the things they mention!

debdenny said...

Like to read a good series. This really sounds like a fun one.

Parenting Patch said...

I love the title of this book!

I was born in 1985, so I do not have a lot of memories from the 80s. My favorite one that I remember is my dad taking my brother and me to see Ghostbusters 2. We got scared and had to leave during the ghost train scene.

Denise C said...

One of my favorite memories from the 80s is of seeing Spaceballs in the theater. I don't think I'd ever laughed that hard before!

Jennifer Juro said...

I have not heard of this series before it sounds like a great read!! I am always looking for new books to read.

Deb PelletierC said...

In the 1988 I went on trip with a friend and had so much fun. That was my last big trip.

Liz Mays said...

This will be especially fun to read since I was in school during that time period. I can't wait!

Myrah Duque said...

I loved the 80's so many great memories! Haven't heard of this series but sounds like one I would be very interested in.

Unapologetically Us Valerie said...

Love the title and it sounds like a great read! Thanks for sharing

Trippy Cusp said...

Well, I wasn't born until 1993, so I don't have any memories of the 80's unfortunately! I really love 80's music though. I wish I could've experienced the fashion first-hand! :)

raul dereal said...

It really looks fun, I love reading novels

Mindi said...

This looks like a really fun series and, considering I graduated high school in 1987, seems like it might be a "walk down memory lane" for me ;)

CourtneyLynne said...

Ooooo this looks like a fantastic read! I'm going to have to check it out for myself!

Megan R said...

I don't really remember the 80's, since I only lived in them for just over a year!

Terri. said...

OMG!! The 80's were so much fun!! I was a teenager in the 80's. It was friends, hanging out and no real responsibility!

Lindsay Giedosh said...

Does being born count? LOL! I was born in 1987 :)

Veronica Lee said...

I was a teen in the 80's and have fond memories TV shows like Dallas, Dynasty etc. We wore blue mascara and yellow eyeshadow, big hair and shoulder pads!

lildevilgirl22 said...

I was born in 1986 so i do not remember the 80's

Laura said...

I wasn't alive during the 80's, so no memories here.

Emily Endrizzi said...

I was elementary school age in the 80s. I remember teasing my bangs. Not sure if that is a good memory though. Lol. I remember cassette tapes and recording my favorite songs off the radio. I remember having ONE telephone in the house and it was a rotary dial WITH a cord! I remember getting our first microwave oven and our first (Atari) computer. I have fond memories of playing our ColecoVision and Nintendo NES. Super Mario Bros. was the best! I remember getting RL Stine books for Christmas and reading them in one day. Lots of good 80s memories.
