Big Shoes Blog Tour

Today on my blog I have the Big Shoes blog tour. On my stop there is a spotlight, review, 10 favorite books post, and giveaway.

Jersey Shore broker Austin Carr wants out of the stock and bond business but un-hooking from his mobbed-up partner won’t be painless. Angelina “Mama Bones” Bonacelli is best known for professional consultations that deteriorate into criminal violence, breakfast appointments raided by the FBI and one particular Power Point presentation to a Jersey state racing commission that ended in automatic weapons fire.

Good thing she likes Austin.

She just won’t let Austin out of the business. Plus Johnny “The Turk” Korsay is on a rampage and had his crooked cops arrest Luis, the bartender Austin’s best friend. Why? Because Austin saw The Turk kill Heriberto. And now he’s gunning for the stock broker. 

It’s another brush with violent death and a sexy redhead for Austin Carr when Mama Bones and her rival Jersey associate of a fading New York crime family battle for the future of imported sex slaves, boardwalk tourist business and surprising horse racing secrets, past and present.

“Big Shoes is a five-star romp.”
--Rick Bylina, best-selling author of One Promise Too Man


This is one of those series that I just enjoy reading all due to the hero Austin. He is always in some kind of trouble due to either a woman or his business connections but he always keeps his sense of humor which has me laughing out loud constantly. Just like the other books there is suspense and twists and honestly I don't know how Jack keeps coming up with these situations that he always puts Austin in but I am hoping for more as I always have a good time reading about Austin and his crazy adventures. 4/5 Bloody Fangs
