Bad Things Happen is the first book in the Ashes to Ashes series. This story is left open to pick up in book two.
I have to say, I’m not a huge fan of sports so I was a little concerned that I wouldn’t like this book, but it actually had me sucked in from the beginning. It isn’t sports heavy and focuses more on the mystery and intrigue aspects. I found the first-person story line for Joey an interesting choice considering what happens to him. One thing I found interesting is that a lot of the characters you kind of have a love/hate relationship with. They’ve all got something that makes you cringe a little bit, but also parts of them that make you love them in some way or other, at least most of them. There were a couple characters that were just…evil. I am interested to see how things play out in the next book.
