Publisher's Summary

It's '86, the era of Pop Rocks, Jelly shoes, and big hair bands. Rachael O'Brien's freshman plan seems simple: Attend a southern college away from her hometown of Canton, Ohio, earn a degree, party, and meet cute guys-hopefully acing the latter two.

But being threatened by a jealous She-Devil, avoiding the advances of a 30-something redneck, and discovering an art fraud scheme mess with her "to do" list. On top of her troubles at school, Rachael finds herself forging a new relationship with her emotionally shaken father after Mom abandons the family to pursue a psychic calling. Bad decision-making, law-bending behavior, and surprise romances make freshman year challenging in Paisley Ray's Deep Fried and Pickled quick-witted, south-of-the-Mason-Dixon romp.

    "Going to College with Rachel O;Brien is A Hoot"

    Lots of fun getting immersed in the wacky world of the story. There's plenty of wit and humor woven into Rachel O'Brien's misadventures and the unique bunch of characters she encounters. Listening to this book can provide a great antidote to the tension of rush hour traffic.

    "Funnier than Raid on a cockroach!"
    What did you love best about Deep Fried and Pickled?

    This book can both make you wish you were back in college while at the same time making you happy you never have to relive those days again.

    The delivery, the narration, the phrasing and vocalizations are fantastic.


    What other book might you compare Deep Fried and Pickled to and why?

    While totally different while having some similar attributes, I think readers of this series and readers of Kelsey Browning and Nancy Naigle's work would appreciate this snarky southern insight.


    Which character – as performed by Suzanne Cerreta – was your favorite?

    I laughed at so many!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    who knew college life would give such an education!


    Any additional comments?

    Keep your shoes with you, cell phone charged (I know, but now is a different time) a good GPS app and money to pay for your own way home.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    To my friends college age grandkids yes. But to my age friends not really. The book was sort of a mystery, love story and let see how drunk we can get at the parties. The main story was on a young girl freshman from Ohio coming to South Carolina for college and trying to score her first fling. Oh also she knows art so thats where the mystery comes in and the story moves fast and the people we all new in high school or college.


    If you’ve listened to books by Paisley Ray before, how does this one compare?

    My first


    Did Suzanne Cerreta do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Yes she had a different identity for each characters from nice to bitchy


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Too young for me

    "Love this series!!"
    What did you love best about Deep Fried and Pickled?

    This series will have you laughing out loud. Rachel is a college freshmen in this first book. She is an art history major and trouble seems to follow her everywhere she goes. The narrator does a great job changing her tone for each character. Give it a try. I promise you will want to listen to the entire series and you will become a huge Rachael O'Brien fan just like me.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I absolutely would recommend this audiobook to a friend! The book itself was excellent, but the audiobook just put everything together.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Katie Lee is my favorite, she makes me laugh out loud and makes everybody step outside their box. Rachel would be so boring without her.

    Any additional comments?

    This is a great book; this is the first book in the Rachael O’Brien Chronicles written by Paisley Ray and narrated by Suzanne Cerreta. Rachael O'Brien's freshman plan seems simple: Attend a southern college away from her hometown of Canton, Ohio, earn a degree, party, and meet cute guys-hopefully acing the latter two. But being threatened by a jealous She-Devil, avoiding the advances of a 30-something redneck, and discovering an art fraud scheme mess with her "to do" list. On top of her troubles at school, Rachael finds herself forging a new relationship with her emotionally shaken father after Mom abandons the family to pursue a psychic calling. Bad decision-making, law-bending behavior, and surprise romances make freshman year challenging for Rachael.

    This book has a wonderful story and well developed characters. This book will keep you reading long into the night. This was such a great read and full of surprises.

    The narrator Suzanne Cerreta did a wonderful job with this book. She did a great job with the different voices of each character in this book. It was very easy to listen to and I didn’t want to stop listening until the end.

    If you are looking for a great book with well-developed characters then you need to listen to this book. I am looking forward to listening to the next book by this author and narrator.

    "Just didn't click for me"

    The writing & character development were solid, the narration was very good, but thematically it just didn't click for me. Maybe I'm just not at the right place in my life to relate to a bunch of partying college girls (wow that makes me feel old to say). I also really didn't like all the foul language - this book was heavy with it. I tend to listen to books on speaker around my toddler & I really don't want one if her first words to be f****ity-f****-f****-f****. I had to put ear buds in pretty quickly to be able to continue listening. Sorry, this one just wasn't for me.

    I was given this book by the rights holder at no charge in exchange for my unbiased review

    "Deep Fried and Pickled"

    It took me awhile to get into the story. In fact, I restarted the story a few times. But my persistence eventually paid off for I was soon caught up in the story. The author is new to me. I'm looking forward to reading more of this author's work.

    "SO MUCH FUN with a little mystery!"

    I had so much fun listening to this audiobook with all its fun loving characters and their stories. I wished I could go to college with these girls, party with these girls and be friends with theses girls. I love how Paisley Ray added the mystery along with the TWO SHE DEVILS! A bunch of different plots all in one. I can't wait to see what's next for Rachael O'Brien and her friends in the next book of the series.
