    One thought on “Cherry Bomb”

    1. 2.5 starts. Another typical Jack Daniels mystery, without the mystery. Before I picked up the book, I knew it was going to be about Alex & 3 of 6 about the same psycho just gets old. I was pretty sure I knew what the basic plot would be & was right, so there were no shockers overall. Specifics were pretty good though. The monkey had me chortling at times, but I have a very low sense of humor, so be warned.I'm fairly sure where the series has to go from here, but I think I'm done, at leas [...]

    2. Quite honestly, I had a hard time trying to decide whether this book deserves four stars or five. Finally, I decided to go whole hog simply because the heroine, Lt. Jacqueline "Jack" Daniels, rids herself (and future readers) of one of the villains who has been dogging her through several previous books. Frankly, it's about time. Although the action is fast-paced, the plots are well thought out and I've had a hard time putting down any of Konrath's books including this one, watching Daniels get [...]

    3. Honestly, one of my favorite Jack Daniels' novels in the series. I won't give any spoilers for those who have been following this series, but only some basic comments on what I liked about this one.The characters: obviously, as a series, we've seen these characters grown in various ways throughout this journey. Konrath remains true to their individual identities, and the changes or events taking place in their lives are completely in tune with what we, as readers, have come to expect.The pacing: [...]

    4. AARGH!!! Why did I keep torturing myself with this series? I know that I will never give it more than 3 stars, not after the repetitive serial killer theme and one of the most irritating characters I have EVER read. Still, it's a crack, and I can't seem to stop.So the focus here is the showdown of Jack and Alex, yeah, Alex kills more people, (view spoiler)[including Jack's ex-husband, Alan. I should feel sorry for the guy, but I don't (hide spoiler)], and Jack is determined to end this once and [...]

    5. I just finished Cherry Bomb and I am thoroughly disappointed. Upon reading the Introduction by Author JA Konrath, I decided this would be my last Jack Daniels novel. I’ll miss Jack. Konrath told more then I needed to know prior to beginning this novel. In the end of Fuzzy Navel you are left wondering which character met their demise. When the victim was revealed in Cherry Bomb it was not who I expected, and wished it had been anyone else. Things proceeded downhill after that revelation. Then I [...]

    6. Cherry Bomb was a fast-paced thrill ride that left me more satisfied than a drink of the same name. Jack Daniels is back and her nemesis Alexandra Kork has returned to finish the job undone in Fuzzy Navel. As Jack stands at graveside, her cell phone rings and Alex is leading the chase again. People are dying while Jack is forced to slowly track down the victims before their time runs out. The quest becomes personal when Alan, Jack's ex, and Herb are at risk. As time runs out, Jack is forced to p [...]

    7. More like 3 1/2 start. Started out great, but became weirder as it went along. Also, too much senseless violence.

    8. Cherry Bomb3 StarsIn the aftermath of the attack on her home and the death of a loved one, Lieutenant Jack Daniels must confront the darkest side of her soul and decide whether vengeance against the maniacal Alex Kork is worth the price of her badge and her honor. Not up to Konrath's usual standards. The characterization takes a weird and irritating turn. Who is the whiny woman who has taken over Jack Daniels' body? Since when did Phin become so smarmy? How could Harry McGlade possibly get even [...]

    9. This series is like a car crash for me, one that I can't help but to look at even though it drives me nuts. I think these books are just ok, but for some reason I can't quite bring myself to stop reading them and I am not sure why. Jack is only mildly interesting, and most of the other characters just grate on my last sane nerve with their stupid actions (like getting a monkey???? Really come on!). This time around Jack is just not herself, she is recovering from her fiance's death and still bei [...]

    10. Amazing! I loved this whole series! I'm thinking I liked it better than the Stephanie Plum books. This book has the serial killer from hell returning with all the characters I've grown to love. Plus a monkey that had me laughing so hard I thought I would pee myself. A Plus all the way!

    11. Alex Kork had better be dead. Half the books in the series so far have dealt with her and I'm tired of it. It's time for a new villain.

    12. The book opens with a gloomy, depressing scene. Jack Daniels is standing in the rain attending the funeral of her loved one killed by Alex Kork. Alex can’t even leave Jack alone long enough to grieve. Jack gets a call at the graveside from Alex advising Alex that she is ready to kill again unless Jack can find a way to stop her.So begins a wild chase with Jack determined to catch Alex this time and end her reign of terror for the last time. However, Alex always seems to be one-step ahead and t [...]

    13. So, I started this book SUPREMELY ANNOYED that I was tricked into reading it just to find out who died at the end of the last book. (Yeah, I could have just -ed it but it was right there)That was a cheap enough trick. Then, yet again, it's STILL THE SAME BADDIE from the previous book. JUST DIE ALREADY, PLEASE. FOR REALS THIS TIME. Meanwhile, Jack's having all kinds of existential crises about her love life, her career, her friends, her family. and everyone is still being shot, punched, stabbed, [...]

    14. I have to say I agree with the other reviews of this book - Alex the serial killer has gone on long enough, just kill her already. The book opens on Jack's fiance Latham's funeral. Alex had killed him at the end of the last book. Jack is determined to find Alex and arrest her but her boss tells her she is off the case because she is too close to it. Alex gave Jack a cell phone though and tells her she still wants to play the game. Jack gathers her friends and is on the hunt for Alex while the po [...]

    15. Reading a book of fiction having all the elements you enjoy does not happen on a regular basis. Cherry Bomb had it all! Cherry Bomb had drama, suspense and humor. What I like about Konrath’s Jack Daniels series is how he portrays his female cops and female criminals as real people. Konrath cleverly weaved a story around two women: Jack, a detective and Alex, a psychopathic serial killer who enjoys torturing her victims before murdering them and, if they appeal to her sexually, she tortures the [...]

    16. Cherry Bomb by J.A. KonrathJack Daniels Tennessee Whiskey is satisfying, not my favorite but satisfying. Jack Daniels the book character is a hard nosed female detective tracking a psychopathic serial killer out to destroy all who Jack loves. Apparently in a previous book, Jack had incarcerated and disfigured Alex while killing her only love. Alex took this amiss and that is her rationale for her demented behavior. I have only read one other Konrath book and this one was even more violent than t [...]

    17. What a terrific series!!!!!I wanted to give this novel 5 stars but I found the final scene with Alex to be a complete letdown. It seemed entirely unrealistic to have a character like Alex, with such a brilliant criminal mind who planned every move, to be so easily outwitted by Jack in the last showdown. Beyond that, this was your typical page-turning, roller coaster romp that we've all come to expect from Konrath. I also love that he finally introduced a relationship between Jack and Phineas (wh [...]

    18. This is the last book in this series. Which is good because it is the last one I would have read even if it wasn't. The series was always violent. It is about serial killers after all. But this was just one violent scene after another. Which for me at least was way too much. Added to that was the long detailed sex scene that rivaled anything I've read in a romance novel. Might have been OK if it not come out on nowhere and included a character who just buried a lover. There was a side story abou [...]

    19. Just eh with a shrug. I didn't really care for this one for some reason. Maybe because of Alex. It just wasn't believable to me that all these people can be killed and no one links it all together!When her ex-hubbie is captured they had two hours to send all the cops in the city to look at the hotels that he "checked in" at. Why didn't anyone else think of finding him like she did. They could easily have found him in time.Things just weren't believable enough for me I guess.

    20. I was sick and tired of Alex in the last book. Having to deal with her yet again was more than enough. She left so many dead bodies in her wake that I'd become desensitized to all the deaths by the end. I liked Konrath's older books in the series since they were so morbid they left me with a sense of unease while reading, but this was just rather "ho-hum, how many more victims will Alex be able to claim by the time things are wrapped up?"

    21. excellant book real pg turner sad to see who died . loved harrys new partner hehe. laughed so hard i cried the ending was a real surprise to me. hope there is a sequel . but i won,t ruin the book for others. and say want happens. just buy cherry bomb and be prepared for some laughs and horror maybe a little gore. i diffenetly recommend this book along with all the ones before it.

    22. This was my least favorite in this series, so far. This author should stick to writing the police murder mystery/serial killer stories and stay away from the sex scenes! I have read the first 5 books in this series and enjoyed them and I liked the character of Jack Daniels as a sometimes over-dedicated cop. Not so much the out of control, over the line, on the run vigalante in this installment.

    23. The first couple of books in this series were pretty good. I've continued reading them because on my Kindle they're free. The last book, Fuzzy Navel, was pretty bad and this one wasn't much better. There are too many unrealistic killings and not much of the action is believable. In earlier books Harry was pretty funny but now he's plain silly and having him get a monkey didn't work for me.

    24. Jack Daniels is going head to head with an old nemesis who is on a rampage targeting Jack's friends and co workers. Because the killings and threats are so close to Jack, she is taken off the case and has resorted to getting help from her old partner and another friend who is wanted by the FBI for a bank robbery. Lots of scrambling around and near missis as well as change for Jack by the end.

    25. Infinite stars.I've said it a thousand times but J.A. Konrath/ Jack Kilborn can do no wrong. He's books are just begging to be made into action-packed epic movies. Fantastic, what a showdown! Surprisingly loved the ending, good choice Jack.

    26. I had hopes for this book: a female cop in a series, with each book named after a drink, and the cop named Jacqueline "Jack" Daniels. Sounded clever, sounded funny, But no, they're not funny, and the violence is non-stop and gratuitous. Ugh. Didn't even attempt to finish it.

    27. Jack and Alex continue their battle, it's long and complicated. Not quite as many laugh out loud moments but enough and still very good.

    28. I am sick to death of Alex. I love Konrath's style and dialogue but this was not the bomb for me. A tad too bloody and I hated the monkey !!!!
