Cars, Coffee, and a Slightly Used Casket Julia Karr Book 2 by K.C. Hilton

Cars, Coffee, and a Slightly Used Casket
Julia Karr Book 2
by K.C. Hilton
Genre: Humor, Satire

**Recipient of the 2018 Readers' Favorite Finalist Award!**

Our favorite car dealer is back, kicking ass and taking names, and she's just as fabulous as ever.

Julia Karr is a used car lot owner and she isn't expecting an invitation to the popularity pool. Her business is drowning with past due accounts, difficult customers and crazy repossessions. In order to get the vacation of her dreams, Julia makes a deal with her husband.

After catching a burglar, tackling a customer, and looking down the barrel of a gun, it's clear to this feisty car dealer that her vacation may be harder to achieve than she thought. Daily chaos drives Julia to eat more chocolate, buy more wine, and prepare for the afterlife. She could blame it on the contractor, the cheap casket, or a naked friend, but she'd rather blame it on the car lot.

Author C.J. Anaya -- Julia Karr is the Stephanie Plum of car dealers.

Can easily be read as a standalone!

Continuing on where the first book left off, you can read this as a stand alone. It is perhaps funnier than the first, in some aspects. There are also dangerous and touching moments as well. Some secrets are not revealed until the very end.
I felt the narrative quality was higher in this second book. We still get the astonishing view of the used car business but even more of Julia's personal life and activities.
From repossessing cars to tours of the mortuary embalming room and planting roses at the cemetery, there is a different air about this second book of the series. Julia's character is more rounded and in depth. The funeral home humor struck me as clever and witty.

Cars, Coffee, and a Badass Ninja Toilet
Julia Karr Book 1

If you deal with customers day after day who drive you insane, give you reasons to drink alcohol, or make you want to quit your job, this book is definitely for you.

A chaotic and hilarious portrait of a used car lot owner, Julia Karr. Her feisty attitude and fearless approach to managing a business, how it affects her home life and dealings with customers will have you scratching your head about humanity.

Author C.J. Anaya -- Julia Karr is the Stephanie Plum of car dealers.

Cars, Coffee, and a Badass Ninja Toilet (Julia Karr Series) by K.C. Hilton is a great addition to books with strong female lead characters who work hard, love their family, deal with outrageous people on a daily basis and try to live a normal life.

Can easily be read as a standalone!

Prepare to laugh.Romeo and Julia Karr are married. They own a used car lot, but he is also an electrician because he doesn't want to be a plumber. Also because as busy as the car lot is, they also need another source of income. I have to think that if they worked together 24/7 they would drive each other nuts. Well, more nuts than Julia already is. She is a loveable nut though.
Told through short chapters, suitable to stand up comedy, this gives the reader a true view of what life is like in the business of selling used cars and DIY remodeling.
Let's see if it makes you want to run out and buy golf balls!
I could imagine taking them to open houses, rather than attempt this at home.
K.C. is a wife, mother and manages the family business. K.C.’s husband refers to her as Hobbit size and claims that she is “nuttier than a fruit cake.”

She owns a complete set of pink tools, believes in aliens and secretly wants to become a badass ninja. In her spare time, she can be found daydreaming about leaving work early to eat chocolate and drink wine. Sometimes her dreams come true.
