    I read Bad Break as part of the box set for Diabetes Research (which I reviewed as a box set) but wanted to write an individual for this book. I love the Character Lucy Guardion! Yes, she is a tough lady but mostly she is filled with a determination to make the world, at least the part she can touch, a better place for her family. She has a strong sense of right and wrong and is willing to bend rules in order to make things right.

    Not a bad read, part of the Lucy Guardino series - a novella. A bit too much teenage angst in places, but the story line was good. Where exactly do your donations go to? 2 thumbs up and 4 solid stars!

    A Vacation for Lucy Nick Callahan has two women in his life. One is his 14 year old daughter, Megan. He loves his daughter to the depth of his heart, despite — or maybe because of? — her being the second most stubborn female he's ever met. The other female in his life he loves to the depth of his core. His wife, Lucy. Megan's mother. The most stubborn femal in his life. He knows Lucyʼs stubbornness has been ingrained in Megan's DNA since conception. Lucy is a kick ass FBI Supervisory Special Agent A Vacation for Lucy Nick Callahan has two women in his life. One is his 14 year old daughter, Megan. He loves his daughter to the depth of his heart, despite — or maybe because of? — her being the second most stubborn female he's ever met. The other female in his life he loves to the depth of his core. His wife, Lucy. Megan's mother. The most stubborn femal in his life. He knows Lucyʼs stubbornness has been ingrained in Megan's DNA since conception. Lucy is a kick ass FBI Supervisory Special Agent on mandatory vacation. Nick claims he has too much work — too many clients who need him — to go on vacation just now. He waves merrily as his girls go off to the Lowlands in South Carolina together. Just the two of them. Megan, blossoming into young womanhood, immediately spies a young man who is just beautiful. Inside and out, Megan realizes, as they walk along the beach getting to know each other. The next day the beautiful young man will teach Megan how to surf. Megan appears at the time and place where they were to meet. The young man isn't there. What happens next will show Megan some truths about her mother. And Lucy realizes she does work too hard catching bad guys. She also realizes Megan is growing up. Nick gets his women back, both very changed. They are more tolerant of each other. Both are still stubborn. I really like how Ms. Lyons has these novellas just as the characters are on the brink of major change.

    Bad Break Another great thriller. I have read all the Lucy's FBI stories and enjoyed all very much. The plots and characters are so very real!!! And none of the conclusion 's are similar as many series I've read. Please continue writing , I'm sure I 'ok enjoy anything written by C J Lyons.

    This is much more of a standard thriller/detective novel than any of the previous Lucy novels, and it is better for it. It is also the segue novel to transition Lucy from the FBI to her next adventures, with a more involved daughter and husband. Good story, recommended.

    Very enjoyable This book seems to be a bridge for our heroine Lucy--between the FBI series and her later career. I enjoyed it, especially the parts that showed her daughter's viewpoint. Not so dark as some of CJ Leon's other books--definitely a "lighter" read.

    For a novella, Bad Break is great. Lucy can't even have a quiet vacation at the seashore with her daughter without getting involved in murder and mayhem. Her daughter is a budding detective in the mold of her mother, and manages to get both of them hip deep in danger. I liked it very much.

    Outstanding I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I like her style of writing and her diverse characters. It was neat to see her daughter growing up and with a lot of skills similar to her mom.

    Vacation? No rest for the weary or the broken down. Lucy can't get a break. But she does know how to use her time wisely

    As much as I've loved the other books of this series, I found this novella rather disappointing. The plot is not very interesting and the suspense is nearly non-existent as we globally know what happened quite early in the book. I was somehow waiting for a twist but it never came. Besides, Megan, who is a major character in this story, is really annoying. Her angst and insistence to find the boy were in my opinion not very consistent since she had just met him.

But you could think from her reaction that he was a good and long time friend of her. So in the end, this story was ok to read though rather pointless. Which won't prevent me from immediately beginning the next book of the series. ;)

    Quick read - Action Lucy has taken some much needed R&R with her teenage daughter. Can she restore their relationship, will she actually relax and stay away from work related things? What could possibly happen in a small sea coast town away from the fancy resorts? Will the boy that Meagan is attracted to prove to be trouble for them? I can't tell you. You'll just have to read it. As always. JS Schneider writes an action packed story intertwined with family drama and without the trash.

    another brilliant short story by cj lyons....this is how short stories should be full of actions and not disappointed half finished storylines saying that though megan lucys teenage daughter is getting on my nerves...acting like she is a super hero when its her mom that is the fbi detective here this is a story about mother and daughter time and what can happen when murder and mayhem abound....again a brilliant story line by cj lyons

    I love Lucy, but... I do love the Lucy books but this was a short story and kinda a repeat. There was an eye roll moment with Meagan where you feel like yelling at the screen, "don't go down to the unlit basement!" Not literally so no giveaway. It's hard to stay fresh with so many books. Ill take a break from Lucy and go back to the medical thrillers. I would recommend. Gbash

    Lucy does it again! Good to see all of the characters back again. Great story, a little lighter than normal, but it was good to see Lucy and Megan get back on track. The book stands alone but it does set up for the next book and what Lucy may be doing.

    I love Lucy,...and her family and friends. CJ Lyons brings a gritty reality to the bad guys and an honest caring to the good guys. Another great story that I didn't put down until I finished it. Every time I finish a CJ Lyons book, I anxiously wait for the next one to be released.

    Lucy I think I was going into Lucy withdrawal, this was just what I needed only wish it could have been a full length book, can't wait for the next Lucy adventure.

    I really enjoyed this novella that just focused on Lucy & Megan. And one again, we find out how bad a$$ Lucy can be! This should hold me over until the next installment.

    This was such a great book! I loved seeing her almost exclusively with Megan, her daughter is a big part of her life, and yeah, this book had a great mystery, and I loved reading it!
