I was surprisingly pleased with this book! I didn’t know what to expect but I’m so glad I read this book! Bad Things Happen is Book 1 in the Ashes to Ashes series by Rowena Holloway. This story follows Joey Baptiste, who is a professional football (Soccer) player that has witnessed a major crime. This story also follows Charlotte Ashe. She is a weather girl on television trying to become a true crime reporter. Charlotte gets lucky when Joey comes to her with this crime, but Charlotte has no idea what she’s getting into. Her job and life is on the line and Joey is trusting her with everything. Now it’s up to Charlotte to uncover the whole truth behind Joey’s story. Can she do it? I guess you will have to see! I did like the way that the author grabbed you and continued to keep you in suspense the whole time. To be truthful, it was a little bit difficult to keep track of the timeline. Other than that…I loved the characters and the well to be honest the British language! I truly do love books based in the U.K. Things tend to be a bit more forward and raw. The humor is hysterical and I loved how Charlotte is completely focused on her work and doing well at her job. She is determined to prove everyone wrong and prove that she can do the job! I love when the female lead is strong and learns to come into her own.
