The dusty pit-stop of Jackrabbit Junction, Arizona is rampant with jitters, and not just the pre-marital kind. Claire is back, blowing in with a monsoon storm on her heels and raining trouble throughout the cactus-filled valley. A burglar is on the loose and she wastes no time forming suspicions, but her usual suspects are temporarily off the hook when a treasure hunt side ...more

I loved this book. I love Ann Charles. I love the Deadwood series and the Jackrabbit Junction stories. There were only two problems I had with this book. First, the minor one, is that it took Claire and Joe til almost midway in the book to have a little satisfying interlude moments. And the bigger problem, this book ended.

I love the whole cast of zany characters. Claire's sister was fun from the moment we meet her and I'm sure all readers will be just as annoyed by "mom" Deborah as I was. This
Although Arizona has never been my home state, it is one of my favorite states to visit and the setting for Jackrabbit Junction Jitters the second book of this series. Claire is back and knee deep in a new mystery with the break-in, her Grandpa's upcoming wedding to Ruby and her acidic mother arriving to stir everyone up until her misery is spread to one and all.

Claire finds a stick figure and sandal she is sure is an artifact, plus a human hand in Joe's hidden safe. She finds a poem about treas
This 2nd book in the Jackrabbit Junction series is firing on all cylinders and expands the cast of characters. We have the same fun crowd as before with Claire, Harley and his besties (my favorite is Manny), Ruby, her daughter Jess, and Mac. Add to the mix Claire’s mother Deborah, her younger sister Kate and the very hot bar owner Butch, and things in the Junction just got jittery.

They mystery is less mysterious this time around, but that’s only because it relies again on the misdeeds of Ruby’s

Every one of her books is better than the last. I love the unforced humor, romance and the twists and turns. Keep them coming, Ann! I am saving the 5th star for your next book, because I know I will love it too. Can't wait to meet Ronnie,lol!

Rv parks can be fun

This story keeps you guessing from start to finish. Claire manages to get into more trouble in a few days than most people have in their whole lives. A Rv part in arizona that somehow seems to cater to the older crowd brings together a diverse group of people. We have a mom and a teenage daughter that own the Rv park, the geriatric bunch, a granddaughter and when Harley and Ruby get together the rest of their families just seem to come along. Claire manages to fall for Ruby's

I’m not sure I enjoyed this second book as much as the first, but it still had enough humour, hijinks and mayhem to make reading it fun.

The characters were all zany, crazy and quirky, especially Manny and Chester, two over-sexed teenagers residing in seniors’ bodies, who boasted constantly of their sexual prowess and conquests. Like teenagers, I’m sure many of those conquests were just in their minds and not actual fact, but it was entertaining listening to the two old codgers nevertheless.

Claire helps out at an RV ranch as her grandfather prepares to marry the proprietor, Ruby. An attempted robbery leads her on a treasure hunt. Such is exacerbated by the arrival of her boy-crazy sister and her overly critical mother (the latter of whom is convinced her future stepmother is a gold digger), Ruby's 15-year-old daughter who is intent on leaving Arizona for Ohio, some mysterious fellows, and questionable ownership of a mine. Although I liked this book okay, the pace in the beginning w ...more

This is the second book in the Jackrabbit Junction Mystery series by Ann Charles. This book is set several months after the first book, with Clair Morgan returning to the Dancing Winnebagos RV Park to stay while her grandfather, Harley and Ruby, the owner of the RV park are getting married and to run things while they are away on their honeymoon.

In this book we are introduced to Claire's mother, Deborah, and her sister Kate. The book changes POV between Claire, Kate & Mac, Claire's boyfrien

This second book in the series is twice the fun, as Claire's sister [and mother] come to visit the RV Park.

First paragraphs
Chapter One Wednesday, August 11th Jackrabbit Junction, Arizona Sometimes life tossed Claire Morgan a bone— other days it walloped her upside the head with it. Today was turning into a real knockout, the flat tire on the old Ford pickup the final bonk on her noggin. Claire dragged her ass out of the passenger side of the truck, joining her grandfather who stood grimacing at

Ann Charles creates worlds that would be stressful and frustrating if not for looking through the prism of absurdity. How we see the constantly over-flowing toilet can either be awful or hilarious. With Ms. Charles charming eye for humor and playfulness we (the audience) are always laughing with her as hijinks ensue and more trouble in on the way. I love Ms. Charles' heroines, especially Claire. She is curious, capable, interested and interesting. She is in her 30's, she doesn't have a flawless ...more

Even for an old retired person like myself life has a way of cutting into my reading time or I would have finished this hilariously entertaining second installment of the Jackrabbit Junction series many days sooner. Claire, Mac, Harley et. al. are up to their eyebrows in still another mystery surrounding the nefarious Joe Martino's ill gotten gains. Joined this time around by Claire's sister Kate and their mother Deborah, who is determined to nix Harley's wedding to Ruby. The usual mayhem ensues ...more

I read the first book in the series and went looking for more. This is one of those series that follows a family through different romantic story lines. What makes this one different is that – at least so far – the first romance is still an ongoing story in the other books.

Well written and kookie.

I like this series and plan to read more of her books. If you like sassy heroines with crazy families, check this one out.

Jackrabbit Junction

This is a pretty good series and I look forward to reading more about Jackrabbit Junction. The characters are realistically drawn. I felt like I knew them and enjoyed them and all of their idiosyncrasies. I want to know Claire and Mac, and Kate and Butch better so I will certainly be reading all of this series.

The second book in Ann Charles' Jackrabbit Junction Series is as much fun as the first, Dance of the Winnebagos. Claire is back in Jackrabbit Junction because her Gramps is marrying Ruby. It should be a happy time, but her mother, Deborah (Mommy Dearest), has come as well and is determined to stop the wedding at any cost. We get to meet Claire's sister Kate. Kate is a schoolteacher who has secretly quit her job, and under her polish is someone almost as zany as Claire. To add to the stress, comm ...more

Ann Charles keeps outdoing herself. She has created a cast of characters to rival her Deadwood series. And I love those guys! I enjoyed this book more than the first one in this series. I will not make the mistake of reading her series back-to-back. I was confusing the Deadwood characters with this cast thru the entire first book in the Jackrabbit series. I became too distracted and undoubtably missed many key elemants to the story. I became lost at times and didn't enjoy #1 as much as #2.

I enjoyed the story. It may have been easier to jump in at the beginning if i would have read book 1 first. I loved Clair. She reminds me of myself at times. Deborah would have been run off from day 1 if it were my mother. What a nosy busy body she is. Jess is the typical pain in the back-side teen. She doesn't know when to listen or button the lips.
Even though it seems more and more of today's family's are like Claire's, constantly bickering, nagging or being a smart mouth, i feel it was a bit

It was a good book. Based in a small town with an RV park. Lots of mines and caves around some were owned . A crazy funny family got worse once Clairs mom and sister came to town for a visit. Her mom was so bossy. Whose hiding what and where is it hidden in the floor boards or the mines. Clair is one tough girl who goes thru alot.

Characters are fun and believable. Fast paced, edge of your seat entertaining. Would personally like less cursing, but will definitely read more of her books.

A really fun romp in the desert! The second in this series introduces us to more crazy members of Claire's family, as she and her boyfriend Mac race to solve a mystery. Her grandfather and his cronies are ornery as ever and keep the story a laugh a minute.

#2 is the Jackrabbit Juniction series is just as great as the first. Claire Morgan is back in Jackrabbit Junction for the wedding of her grandfather to the owner of the RV park, Ruby. Unfortunately, things aren't going all that well for Claire. Her relationship with Mac has hit a slippery slope (for her) and to make matters worse, her sister is coming to the wedding...and is bringing her mother! Add to that someone suing to take one of Ruby's mines, her sister's penchant for lying and getting in ...more
