And I can't believe it was Self Published! It was so good
(Not to say anything bad about most self published books).
The characters were hilarious and real, the plot was mysteriously quirky, and the writing style was fantastic. Oh and, the location could not be beat since I was living in Los Angeles while reading the first book in this anticipated series. I knew everywhere that Maddie went, although yeah, some of the places were fictional. But the streets were real.
Maddie Springer is just another shoe designer trying to make ends meet when her married boyfriend gets arrested for murder! It is up to her and only her to find the real killer and spring him loose because everybody else thinks that he actually did murder his business partner.
Spying in High Heels is right up my alley with hilarious hijicks that will keep you laughing as you turn the pages; such as Maddie eagerly awaiting the results of an at home pregnancy test, Maddie’s best friend Dana having the hots for a guy nicknamed No Neck, and of course Maddie getting involved with the lead investigator of her boyfriend’s arrest sexy as hell detective Jack Ramirez. Oh and don’t forget all that shopping! Only in L.A.
I can’t wait to start in on the nest book in the series, Killer in High Heels.
