The book I'd give 5 stars. I'm taking a star off for the stupid publishers who erroneously call this a mystery when it's not. The first 2 Chip Harrison books (this one and the previous No Score) are more like soft core erotica or light literary fiction. The latter two books are actually mysteries. Block explains all this in the afterwords and it'd have been nice if someone at the publisher actually read that.

Anyway, so now that you know this isn't a mystery, it's more of a coming-of-age story th

Slumming around New York City, nothing in his pockets and not getting any action to write about, horny as hell teenager Chip Harrison could do with a break when he gets one, of sorts. Finding a bus ticket with the destination of Bordentown, South Carolina, Chip decides on a change of scene, hoping to receive some authentic southern hospitality.
And find it he does, in the manor of bus seat blow-jobs, the ministrations of a peachy minister's daughter, and a job in a genuine southern whorehouse, wh

The first book, No Score, was laugh out loud funny and had me hooked from the beginning. I thought this book would be the same way, but it wasn't interesting and wasn't funny. This was an unnecessary and uninteresting sequel that actually tainted my view of the first book. This is a story with a limited plot, disappointing arc, and minimal character growth.
CHIP HARRISON SCORE AGAIN (Mys-Chip Harrison-So. Carolina-Cont) - NR
Block, Lawrence - 3rd in series

Product Description: The devilish Chip Harrison--young, broke, and girlless--stumbles on a discarded bus ticket and finds himself in South Carolina, where he becomes the local sheriff's protege+a7 and falls in love with a preacher's daughter.

A young man obsessed with sex; didn't appeal to me.
#2 in the Chip Harrison series. Very funny and readable; an improvement on #1.

Chip Harrison series - the sequel to "No Score" finds Chip hiring on as a deputy sheriff in a bordello in a small Southern town, his eye all the while on the minister's nubile daughter.
Early Block still dabbling in the semi-soft core genre but with a serial character. Eh. May have been hip in it's day, maybe even somewhat shocking, but didn't wear well. Still, it was a start to an outstanding career and is a curio from that vantage point

I'm told every good author website needs a bio, so here's mine:

"Lawrence Block's novels range from the urban noir of Matthew Scudder (A Drop of the Hard Stuff) to the urbane effervescence of Bernie Rhodenbarr (The Burglar on the Prowl), while other characters include the globe-trotting insomniac Evan Tanne
