A little like Janet Evanovich. Mad cap misadventures of a struggling young woman just trying to figure it all out. An enjoyable light read!

True: You won't want to put it down...
You'll want to throw it across the room.

However, if you're up for every predictable, TOTALLY BS, Hollywood PC (as in Politically Correct) scenario and cliché, maybe *you* won't feel like feeding this paperback to your neighbors goat, then sending a note to the author, simply stating: "Really? REALLY??".

This was one of my Nookbooks, hence the file size vs number of pages. A charming little bit of fluff that didn’t make me think too hard while trying to accustom myself to reading off a screen instead of a page. The characters were appealing enough for me to give the second book in the series a try.

Maddie Springer is not having a good week. Her boy friend blows off a lunch date and then promptly disappears, with accusations of embezzlement following quick at his heals. Her mother is getting married and expects Maddie to take her to a strip joint for the bachelorette party. Her best friend seems to be hopping into bed with anything that walks by and Maddie's design for the children's shoe company is late. The last thing she needs is more complications.

So when she discovers a body, which is then linked to her missing boyfriend, Maddie's world goes topsy turvy. Can she figure out who done it, and what happened to her boyfriend before she becomes a victim herself? And what about the sexy Ramirez who is investigating the various crimes Maddie seems to get embroiled in.

This is a fun read, very similar to the Stephanie Plum series with its zany, screwball comedy with romance layered over top. A nice, light read.

First book of the series and absolutely hilarious. You won't want to put it down. Gemma Halliday has the art of mystery writing down! I highly recommend this book.

Apr 19, 2010

Twenty-nine-year-old Maddie Springer has always lived her life based on three very important facts: Fashion. Fashion. And more fashion. Sure, she doesn't lead the most glamorous life, and her job leaves much to be desired - not surprising, considering she designs children's shoes complete with Strawberry Shortcake emblems, and the like. But she does have a great boyfriend, and a killer wardrobe, so things aren't so bad. At least, they weren't so bad, until Maddie stumbled upon the clever work of a brutal killer, and suddenly the latest Manolo styles are taking a backseat to murder. Then, the ultimate twist takes place - Maddie's boyfriend has pulled a Houdini, and is missing, along with $20 million in embezzled funds. Now, every step Maddie takes is being watched by the LAPD. Of course, Maddie doesn't mind too much, considering the cop is a hottie, and Maddie wants to make him hers - once she gets the boyfriend off her mind, that is. Now, with the help of her oversexed best friend, an over-the-hill bridezilla of a mother in the midst of planning her wedding to a man who could, quite possibly, be gay, and a 300-pound psychic, Maddie must strap on her most comfortable pair of stilettos, and hop on the trail of a murderer, in an attempt to clear her lying boyfriend's name, and stop the murders before anyone else ends up dead. But now she's beginning to wonder whether she'll be able to catch the killer before the killer catches her; and whether or not, even through all the lies, she can ditch her boyfriend, and make nice with the police officer of her dreams.
