This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life in Books.This was an okay read for me. I decided to read this book because it seemed to be exactly what I was in the mood to read. I remembered seeing some comparisons to Evanovich and thought a mystery with a side of laughter would be just perfect. Unfortunately, I didn't find this book funny. At all. I didn't crack a smile even once so that is a pretty big disappointment. The mystery did hold my interest though. It wasn't a bad read but it [...]

I devoured Time's Up, the first book in Janey Mack's Maisie McGrane series in one sitting. I found the plot to be engaging, a real "page turner" if you will. The strength of Ms. Mack's writing is in her ability to make her characters multi-dimensional, larger than life, but still perfectly believable. Janey has enough trust in her readers to allow them to decide who to loathe and who to love. Mack also allows the reader into the thought world of Maisie before she makes a verbal utterance, a clev [...]

Choked UpBy Jamey MackKensington BooksJanuary, 2016ISBN 978-1-61773-692-6Paperback, 354 pp $15.00/16.95 CA$)Reviewed by Gloria FeitFrom the publisher: Scrappy Traffic Enforcement agent Maisie McGrane has finally landed her dream job as a Chicago police officer. There’s just one catch. She must remain undercover as a meter maid to gather evidence against Stannislav Renko, a charismatic Serbian mobster running a brutal multi-million dollar mobile chop-shop operation. When Maisie is targeted by a [...]

Maisie returns! This page-turner starts off at a break-neck pace and never lets up. Serbian mobsters, a creepy stalker, a brutal mercenary, the FBI and the police all pull Maisie every-which-way while she tries to hide her new undercover job from her boyfriend, her family, and her old boss all while trying to land enough evidence to crack a multi-billion dollar mobile car theft & chop shop operation. Fill with twists and turns, brutal criminals, corrupt politicians, and the wittiest zingers [...]

This second book has even more action and more laughs than the first one. Maisie McGrane is as tough as Holly Holm and Ronda Rousey put together. Had to read it straight through. Janey Mack knows how to entertain the reader.

A few months ago I reviewed the debut novel by Janey Mack titled Times Up. Mack is back with her crime-stopping meter maid Maisie McGrane in the follow-up Choked Up. The premises is a bit more complex this time.Check out my full review here rescuehumor/2015/11/22

I think I'm going to start incorporating Jaysus and Feck into my daily conversations! Witty and fun, a great sequel.

Edge-of-your-seat, nail-biting fun. I love Maisie McGrane! I can't wait for the next installment!

Let me start by saying I did not realize that this was the second book for Maisie, so I'm a little upset that I missed the first one!I thoroughly enjoyed 'Choked Up.' It was lively, fun and entertaining. I want some Hank in my life. Or maybe a McGrane boy.If you enjoyed Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series, you'll notice several similarities between those novels and this.First and foremost, Maisie is a meter maid with a propensity for getting into trouble, yet she handles herself with immense [...]

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review. Not my usual genre to read, but once again I found myself being sucked into the action and really enjoying the story. Maisie is back, a bit wiser, more sure of herself and her place in the world. Problem is she can't tell anyone about her new job and it's eating her up. Despite the tension of keeping secrets from her boyfriend, her family, her coworkers, and a Serbian gangster that takes a liking to Maisie, she is, for the most part, able to ke [...]

Having met actual police ladies & working with them. I wish I could of worked with an action packed doll like officer McGrane. I sorta figured this book was designed for adventurous females but found out it's perdy adventuress for us guys as well. Nothing like a saucy brave cutie taking on the mob. Now, I have to admit I have a severe crush on Maisie. If I ever found a ticket stuck on my windshield by officer McGrane, I'm afraid I'd have to stick around and pay my fine asap and maybe try to [...]

Maisie finally gets the chance to be a cop, for the secret BOC, but ironically it requires her to stay on as a meter maid as her cover, while trying to get the goods on the Serbian Mafia's car theft racket. Being Maisie, she befriends the head of the Serbian Mafia, who decides that she reminds him of his long-murdered sister. As she desperately tries to get enough time away from his guards to keep in touch with her handlers, she's also caught up in problems with her boyfriend, a soldier of fortu [...]

Choked Up is another amazing suspenseful mystery with a hint of romance from Janey Mack. This time, Maisie confronts a villain that is so extremely likeable [in a "Dexter" sort-of-way], it's easy to see how Maisie becomes his friend while trying to put him behind bars at the same time. Talk about a tightrope! As with the first book, the characters are great. I know you're supposed to hate the villain, but he's so well crafted you hope it will all work out in the end! I couldn't put it down, and [...]

The Maisie McGrane series continues with a very well mixed balance of mystery, romance and hi-jinks. Maisie's lover Hank is starting to look like a bad bet, truly. This is either the greatest set up ever or it is going to be a bit of a personal bummer for me if she stays with him. I love the Chicago element- and with Miasie cruising around as a very overqualified meter maid, there are a lot of city scenes.I am hooked but trepidatious about where her life is about to take her.

A welcome little distraction from ho-hum daily life, this fast paced entertaining confection might have you turning pages faster than you want just so you can find out what will happen next. Maisie is fun, funny, and a fast thinking, self-healing train wreck waiting to happen. Can hardly wait for the next one!

4.5 stars!! Choked Up! Janey Mack and Maisie McGrane return!!!!

Choked Up is a crazy ride of dark humor and crime. Stannislav Renko is one of the coolest villains ever. He deserves his own series.

Fun, fierce, feisty, Massie McGrane, gotta love her!!!! Can't wait for the next installment!

Unfortunately I didn't read the first novel in the mcgrane series as I didn't know about it until half way through! Absolutely loved the story but was a bit lost with all the law enforcement jargon.

Oh Maisie, the mess you get yourself into! Another great adventure with twists and turns and laugh out loud moments.

well written entertaining but highly implausible comic thriller! I kept turning pages even as I told myself some of this just didn't make sense- because I liked the characters, even, against my better judgement (like Maisie) Stannis and his cohorts (I actually found him more interesting that Hank). THanks to NETGALLEY for the ARC_ I didn't read the first book in this series but I'll look for the next installment.

This is a great thriller with such interesting twists and turns.

Very good book! Addicting too.

Choked Up is a crazy ride of dark humor and crime. Stannislav Renko is one of the coolest villains ever. He deserves his own series.

Move over Stephanie Plum. Maisie McGrane may just be a younger, smarter, more competent replacement for your readers.Maisie comes from a family of cops and defense attorneys. Her father pulled strings to get her booted from the police academy (where she was first in her class) because he didn't want her to face the dangers of police work.So Maisie became a meter maid. But now she has a chance to go under cover to break up an auto theft ring. And the dangers she faces are far greater than anythin [...]

I think this series has jumped the shark, already.I really enjoy the situational comedy/tragedy that is meter maidhood and the city of Chicago.I am not so sure about spying and undercover amateurs with jealous handlers and wealthy beyond belief boyfriends. I still love her family though.I was able to spot some of the twists very easily.There is another in this series and I hope it embodies the spirit of book one.I borrowed a copy from the public library.

I liked this book even more than the first. It had a lot of dark parts and That really elevated Maisie to a more grown-up level. I'm amazed that Maisie performed some amazing and brutal acts in her pursuit to be a "cop" as a deep undercover "special agent" with indirect ties to her cop family and her mom. But it seems it is due in large part to her obsessive desire to be a cop - even if she is ends up in a Special Unit and no one knows. Maisie's continued involvement with the ultra-sultry, ultra [...]

It's been a while since I read the first in the series, but I finally had some time to read Choked Up. I really enjoy Janie Mack's writing style. It's fresh and innovative. It seems to me that writers, maybe by publisher request, are written in an increasingly generic, homogenized style. Not so with this series. It's fun to read because it features the author's signature style throughout. The story is great, I find myself interested, and wondering how Maisie McGrane will find her way through the [...]

Wow, was this book a disappointment to me!, especially after really enjoying the characters in the first book. This one structurally slow, but with a rushed non-ending. And the icky violence and liberal bashing were continually off-putting. This will be my last read of this series.

I really loved the first book in this series, but this one just didn't do it for me. It was darker and the plotline was so unrealistic that I couldn't get in to it. The humor was good- I wish there was more of it. Maybe I wasn't in the right mood?
