The Book Quadrant: P Is For Pluto by. Jackie Kingon

Hello to all of my beautiful nerds and welcome back from traveling the vast universe! I am back with a long awaited book review!

P Is for Pluto by. Jackie Kingon

Disclaimer: This book review is based on thoughts and opinions of the lead writer of this blog. Please respect her thoughts and opinions! Thank you!

Molly’s Bistro is opening on Pluto and just as she is about to head out there to make sure things are going according to plan her new chef is murdered! She heads for Pluto with her best friend Jersey to crack the case alongside a relaxed police force who is on the job. While finding culprits, she notices that most of the people on the planet looks alike and she even gets confused as a clone herself while being kidnapped. Will she be able to find who killed her chef and be able to open her restaurant in time?

Thoughts: I think this has been my favorite book so far from Jackie Kingon. I felt the same science fiction and humor from Sherlock Mars in this one due to how she always gets in so much trouble like most of the characters in the first one. My favorite part would be when she first meets her clones and she had amnesia on top of it and had to help them make her most famous desserts from her restaurant but only remembered her chocolate chip cookie recipe which sounded so good to me. It was very enjoyable and did see the same interactions with Jersey that I enjoyed before even when Trenton shows up. I do find it interesting how androids seem to have bad gambling addictions at casinos if they’re not careful, even one good example is the character April May who was turned into one and a video shown her and her sister arguing about her addiction. I did find it more interesting how cloning is so big on Pluto and how they told the history about it from Earth and how they implemented it over time on the planet since of course it being controversial on Earth why not do it somewhere else? I did like the scenes with the hatchery since we got to know how Pluto used it over many centuries. It did give an interesting perspective on the case because of how the chef was killed not only with the original but the clones too which kind of shown that someone didn’t want the chef working at Molly’s Bistro on Pluto in the first place. What I also liked that was brought back from Sherlock Mars was of course the mysterious messages Molly has gotten to stay out of the case and just go home. During the last one the person threatening her caused so-called accidents like having Becky’s and Burton’s wedding attire floating in space on the way to the wedding location for example. Here it was mainly going after Molly and her life or getting her mixed up in weird situations that she couldn’t get close to what was going on which makes the book more intriguing as each page turned in the Kindle app.

Rating: 5 Shooting Star Paw Prints Out of 5! I felt that this book was a great sequel to Sherlock Mars because it brought back some of the elements I have enjoyed while reading it. It did bring back the humor even though I felt like I laughed a little more while reading this one. I did like how they made Pluto as different from Mars as in not only having so many clones inhabiting the planet along with androids but also the food. On Mars, according to the books, the food is so fresh, the ingredients are grown all over the planet, and you have tons of great restaurants to choose from while Pluto, on the other hand, the food is really bland, to get really fresh ingredients you have to go to special locations, and also trade for some items too. Not only that, also get used to the odd flavors of the food you eat, I mean Jersey did and it took Molly some time even before her family shown up. I still find it funny how Courtland, her husband, just didn’t want to touch the food despite how normal it looked and find it weird how Molly enjoyed it. I can’t wait to see if Kingon will write another book in this series because I’ve been enjoying it so much and hoping I get to see what may happen with Jupiter since that is my favorite planet after all.

Well guys that is it for this post! I’m glad to get it up finally because I’ve been really busy and trying to get some rest in between due to being exhausted every week but it is part of life when you’re working an eight to five job after all. I am reading the series that the next couple of books on my NetGalley shelf are on so stay tuned for those reviews and of course I am waiting on my subscriptions to arrive and we do have Omni Fandom Expo coming up this month and don’t worry I will get the rest of the RangerStop panels up for you all! Until next time!
