Mad Men, Bad Girls: A Scout Davis Investigation 1
It is a work of humorous fiction which also engages with serious contemporary moral and social issues, such as the ethics of investigative journalism, cults, bullying, family and community dynamics, graffiti, the value of friendships and the responsibilities attached to relationships. Narrator and freelance investigative journalist Scout Davis is an intelligent and intuitive heroine who is addicted to solving mysteries; fiercely protective of family and friends; and perhaps in love with two men.
I was fortunate enough to be part of the trial team for this book, and I really enjoyed it. I found the main character Scout, so likeable, and so normal! I could totally relate to her. I found myself going back to the book every chance I got as the storyline was very interesting. As a result, I finished it within a few days as I found it hard to put down!
Mad Men, Bad Girls (Scout Davis #1) – Better Reading
I love the fact that it is written by an Australian author, Maggie Groff , and set in Australia too, as I could visualise the scenes she reffered to throughout the story, eg. I was SO happy to read that there will be another book based on Scout; she is such a great character!
I would highly recommend this book; it is witty, funny at times, and has a love aspect thrown into it too, amongst all the drama of Scout trying to find out more about the cult, whilst dealing with all the other goings on in her life! A really great read!!! This book is definitely proof of that. I love that she seems to have a little bit of Byron crazy, but she also has a pure heart and always tries to help anyone if she can, even when that means sharing some difficult truths to friends or colleagues.
Scout seems perfectly counteracted by her slightly uptight sister Harper, a school teacher. They have interesting interactions and can be quite snippy, but also can tell they love each other. Marcia is a strong woman and I really like the role she plays on the book, and I also like how she and Scout become friends even under the difficult situation she is going through. I cannot forget chairman Meow; he was a real focal point in the story and such an amusing character for a cat.
This book was so much better than I gave it credit for, it was easy to read, and the story was so good I had difficulty putting it down for too long. I would really like to see a continuation of the series as I think Scout could have plenty of adventures ahead of her being an investigative journalist, I would definitely read more by Maggie Groff because Mad Men, Bad Girls and the Guerrilla Knitters Institute, I thought was just that good. What a wonderfully light and easy read this book was. I actually wasnt sure about this book, because of the unusual title, but was thrilled and found it so easy to read that I finished it in one week.
So the story is based around a lady called Scout, who is an investigative journalist. She is asked to follow a story on a cult that has moved from America to Australia. There are several other stories going on around Scout, as she investigates this story. Scout is a very likeable character, and it is hard not to be drawn in to her world. The storyline is set amongst Byron Bay and the Gold Coast, so it is really easy to relate to and imagine what is going on.
I wont go on too much about the storyline, cause I dont want to ruin it for you, but you certainly would be happy if you did read it.
