” Ms. Ivy bares and shares it all with humor, passion and candor … a riveting read “
If you love cop shows and cop novels and think the various CSI television series are how law enforcement actually works, then let me introduce you to someone who will set the record straight and tell it like it really is. Suzie Ivy is a middle-aged mother who,in BAD LUCK CADET, chronicled with gritty humor and amazing candor her true life adventures and perseverance while attending the police academy’s grueling, testosterone filled, eighteen and a half week boot camp — at the ripe old age of 44.
Now, Ms. Ivy is sharing the true adventures of her first year on the street as a BAD LUCK OFFICER.
With the police academy thankfully behind her, Suzie Ivy’s days as the BAD LUCK CADET are over. But her training and bad luck continues as she hits the streets as Small Town’s first female police Officer.
From the craziness of wrangling an intact bull beefalo, to the danger in mundane traffic violations, and the heartbreak of domestic and child abuse cases, Officer Ivy learns how to conduct herself professionally and safely while getting confessions and handling investigations with the help of some surprising mentors in her all male police department.
But all is not wine and roses (or Glocks and pink handcuffs). There are changing schedules, too little sleep, lab results that take months, sexual harassment, professional tragedies and personal foes to handle along with an increasing addiction to the adrenaline highs of working in the danger zone.
Suzie Ivy bares and shares it all with humor, passion and candor, making BAD LUCK OFFICER a riveting read that you won’t be able to put down until the very end. Go Ms. Ivy!
