Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hilariously entertaining! I’ve just read Ra McGuire’s Here For a Good Time and I was so impressed. This book gives a great insight to life of the road with Canada’s own Trooper. Descriptive, interesting and very funny, Ra McGuire’s novel is a must-read for any true Trooper fan.
