There are two authors I can think of who remain hilarious even as they write over a dozen books, Janet Evanovich and MaryJanice Davidson. Recently I was delighted to discover that Ms. Davidson had written a sequel to her book, Me, Myself, and I, a delightful novel about an FBI agent who struggles with D.I.D. Not not damsel in distress symptoms, but dissociative identity disorder (commonly referred to as multiple personality disorder). I gleefully picked up Yours, Mine and Ours from the library,...more

A Review of Yours, Mine and Ours written by MaryJanice Davidson

Disclaimer I received this book for free through Goodreads First Reads.

This is the Second book in a Trilogy and I have not read the first book called Me, Myself, and Why? but after reading this book I am working towards reading the first at some time in the distant future.

This is the story of Bureau of False Flag Ops (BOFFO) Agent Cadence Jones , her two sisters Shiro Jones and Adrienne Jones , her partner George Pinkman , the new...more

I won this on Goodreads! Thank you so much!

That being said, I had a REALLY hard time getting into this. The main character is actually 3 people...she has multiple personality disorder. It took a while for me to figure out which character was the one speaking. By the end, I felt really bad for Shiro (one of the personalities) cause she was in love with Max, but was moving in with Patrick cause he was Cadence's boyfriend and Cadence is the dominant personality.

About half way through, the mystery p...more

I wasn't in love with this. The Cadance/Shiro/Adrienne characters didn't seem as believable this time. George was as obnoxiously endearing as I remember, and he's still my favorite character. The first 72% of this book was a chore. It seemed like more time was spent re-introducing the multiple personalities than actually building the plot. The ending was rushed but satisfying. I found myself most interested in the "Betcha didn't know" factoids in the addendum.
I appreciate that the author is bra...more

I thought that I had already written a review for this book yet it's not here. So either I did not push save or my other persona dropped the ball. This is the second book in the Candence Jones series. So at this point we all know that Candance is a an FBI agent working in a special division that employs crazies. Candece who is my birthday buddy has multiple personalities. Herself the goodie two shoes virgin that is overly helpful and apologethic, Shiro the no nonsense sister who doesn't take sh...more

Initially, I didn't think I would finish this book. I had not read the first book in the series, so I read reviews about the first book on Goodreads before I understood that the premise of the book is that Cadence has Multiple Personality Disorder, and the book fluctuates between her 3 different personalities (or "sisters" as she calls them). I gave myself until page 50, and if the book didn't get any better, I was going to put it down. Fortunately, it did get better, and I actually enjoyed the...more

Cadence has a multiple personality disorder and it has made her very attractive to the special unit of the FBI, Bureau of False Flag Ops division. Not only is Cadence in her body, but so is Adrienne and Shiro. They think of one another as sisters and they get along fairly well.

Cadence has a new partner, George, who has his own issues. However, it’s only George in his body.They get along fairly well, but then, Cadence is a pretty easygoing woman who tolerates a lot of things and just takes things...more

Perhaps I should have my head examined for buying this book, after all I remembered how much I disliked the first one in this trilogy ( I have a feeling it may be more than three books though). But I decided what the heck, how bad can it be? Well I can safely say it is not as bad as the first book; we at least know what we are in for character wise. On the other hand this is almost a worse book, because we get to spend more time within Candice's other selves and we find out that Shiro is not as...more

The Good
Crazy as Hell...
O. M. G. I am still shocked, days later, by Yours, Mine, and Ours. I don't know how Davidson can have a mind like that and create such brilliance and live in the normal world. Where has she been all my life? Sure, I read her Undead series and I love it, but this new BOFFO series goes beyond what is normal. It's crazy as hell and I love it! Sidenote: I did not read the first book of this series but this book...more

Read with caution if you have not finished Me, Myself, and Why.

First sentence: "--doing in here?" I blinked at the woman across from me.

The sequel to Me, Myself and Why? finds Cadence, Shiro, and Adrienne still working at BOFFO. They are still with Patrick and still trying to merge into one personality (although they are still unsure they want that). They find themselves faced with another serial killer and must all work together, along with their BOFFO coworkers, to track the monster down....more

Recommends it for: those that enjoy fun, fast paced, insane FBI action
I received an ARC of this book for free through the Goodreads First Reads Giveaway Program!

First, let me say, I didn't expect to enjoy this book as much as I am. I'm guilty of judging a book by it's cover in this case.

I made the wrong assumption that this would be a mushy love story, even though the summary makes no suggestion to it. I was so wrong and I'd like to extend my apologies to the author and the future readers for my wicked assumptions.

I'm still reading, but I had to stop in and say t...more

This book started out so well and then it kinda ended flat. It seemed like Cadence/Shiro did a lot of running around after nothing and Adrienne hardly made an appearance at all. Which I guess is good for anyone near Adrienne but bad for readers because she makes it fun. I am not sure what to make of New Girl but I do like the yummy Dr. Gallo. Will be interesting to see if he pops up in the next book (is there going to be a next book?)

Overall the action/mystery in this book was limited for me. An...more

I encountered MJD a few years ago, laughing my way through Undead and Unwed. Betsy, Queen of the Dead is the most unlikely vampire I've ever met--shallow, vapid, whiny, and obsessed with footwear. I have been repeatedly delighted by her cast of oddball characters and imaginative settings.

MJD fans will not be disappointed by Me, Myself, and Why? and it sequel, Yours, Mine, and Ours. Once again MJD delivers off-the-wall characters, rapid-fire dialogue, and her general trademark insanity. These tw...more

Boring, boring, boring. The sequel to Me, Myself and I is just as boring as the first book. A "secret" department - BOFFO - of the FBI only hires people with mental illnesses, i.e. multiple personality disorder, sociopath, kleptomania, etc. These 'agents' employ their unique skills to stop a serial killer of 14-yr old boys. The narrator of the stories is the multiple personality agent and the story switches without warning from personality to another.

I must have missed something or just didn't...more

The second installment of the BOFFO series did not disappoint. Cadence, Adrienne and Shiro are on the case of the JBK (June Boy Killer). They are still involved with Patrick and things seem pretty good. There is plenty of Sociopath George Pinkman and the addition of a new partner Emma Jan Thyme. They are a lot of fun on the case as well. Oh and another new addition, Olive or Dawg. This mystery was a gas as always and I am definitely moving this up to one of my recommendations to everyone.

Ann aka Iftcan
In this the second of Davidson's Me, Myself and Why series, Cadence and her "sisters" are after a serial killer who kills once a year and always a 14 year old white male. But other than that requirement, there is no other common factor. The kids are rich, poor, only children, from multi-children families, different hair/eye/skin tones etc. Oh, and the kills are from all over the country. Only our girls have seen the pattern and realized that a serial killer is out there. Of course, since they do...more

Well this book was a big disappointment in my opinion. I usually enjoy Mary Janice Davidson books but this was not one of them. I found the story line boring and uninteresting. It has been awhile since I read the first in this series so I was completely confused through out this book. If you read this one be sure and read Me, Myself and Why? first and I would recommend reading them close together. I read so much I don't remember ever detail from every book and the lag from reading the first book...more

MaryJanice Davidson knows how to keep a reader enthralled. I really enjoyed this story and am looking forward to the next installment. To me the best part of this series is the characters. The characters are extremely well thought out and developed. Each character has what seems like endless layers and it keeps the reader intrigued and attached to the story. You don't want to stop reading because you want to discover more. I also like and appreciate the connections to the first book in the serie...more

Multiple personality chick takes on bad guys! I love it. Cadence is an awesome character who continues to grow as a person and slowly but surely she is becoming the dominant personality. Though I love her "sisters" I prefer to see Cadence become the woman she needs to be so she can say a healthy goodbye to them. Patrick, her love interest floats between cute and annoying. He's okay with Cadence and her sisters, but it strikes me as cheating at times- they're all her, don't ask me how it smacks o...more

Was not very impressed with this book, I am usually able to read MaryJanice Davidson books very quickly. This one took almost two weeks. I don't like taking that long to read any book. It just seemed much choppier than the first. It was an okay effort but fell flat. I think she's going for mystery writing but needs help getting from point A to point B in a book instead of it all just happily fitting together at the end with no real explanation. I hope if there is a number three that she reviews...more

Second book in this series follows the anything but typical FBI Agent Cadence Jones. Cadence’s multiple personalities—including her two “sisters”, Shiro and Adrienne, serve as an invaluable “talent” to the FBI. As a secret part of the FBI, BOFFO (Bureau of False Flag Ops) only hires operatives with psychological disorders with the theme of “hire a psycho to catch a psycho.” These books are crazy, interesting and funny. The author’s notes at the beginning are hilarious and assure us that mental h...more

I really enjoyed reading it. George is my favorite character even though he is a sociopath.
There were many laugh out loud moments, even the gross moments were fun. There is always a smile on my face when reading it.

Cadence must find the JBJ/JBK killer (there were discrepancies about the killer's name throughout the book so I'm not sure which is the right one). Cadence meets Dr. Max Gallo, one of the grieving families and Shiro ends up falling in love with him.
Patrick asks the Jones sisters to m...more
Diana
Now in a relationship with Patrick (who loves ALL her "sisters"), Cadence finds herself tempted by motorcycle-riding Dr. Gallo as she struggles to track down a serial killer who targets 14-year-old boys.

Sometimes I have a hard time with the shifting narration, especially Adrienne's chapters. I tend to skim those, since they are too disjointed to really make sense of. This series continues to be very unusual, and the crimes are well-crafted mysteries. This book adds a new agent with her own probl...more
Jennifer
I enjoyed this book but just like with the Undead books, I found myself wondering "what is going on?" a lot. MJD's writing is funny, fast paced, and easy to read, but seems like big pieces of the book are snarky banter that don't have a lot to do with the main storyline. Once you read the whole thing, it all makes sense, but you wonder what you're in the middle of half the time. Nevertheless, I enjoyed reading this, and will read more by this author - she is always entertaining & makes me la...more
Katie
I love this series. It is so funny and unusual. I mean a FBI detective who has multiple personality disorder and 3 personalities. Two which are highly entertaining. A partner who is a sociopath and a unit that is made up of people all with various disorders who solve serial killer murders using the traits inherent to their condition. This book constantly has me doubling over in laughter.
Tiffany
Can't wait to read the next one.
Shh I'm reading!
A FBI agent with Dissociative Identity Disorder? The psychologist in me was intrigued. Unfortunately the humor became obnoxious around page 150. The serious issue of boys being murdered had potential to make the story more suspenseful, and I would've have preferred if it had just to give the story some balance and make the main character Cadence/Shiro/Adrienne at little less obnoxious. Otherwise, an okay read reminiscent of the Undead series.
