This was a fun audiobook with snappy dialogue that kept me interested until the end. The finale was a little anticlimactic, but the interactions amongst the characters kept me interested. I already bought the second. Nice, light listening.
Not to impressed. This is pretty light weight, predictable, needs some character development and better dialog. Removed this authors other book from my wish list. Too bad - I like a light read.
I was hoping for another Bubbles or Stephanie Plum, but the heroin is much more reserved. She is smart, and yes there are problems w/her family, love interests gone wrong, a ditsy friend, a trashy one, even a hairdresser, and a cat. Some of the language is a bit harsh (although I suppose it does go w/a bad guy I still don't want to hear or read it). I didn't really start getting interested until about half way through the book, and it ended well. I will read the next installment just to make sure I give the writer a fair chance.
liked it. she was definately inspired by evanovich, but there are worse inspirations. would like to listen to another to see how the characters develope.
I really enjoyed this book. The narrator was pretty good, not great but pretty good, and not distracting to the book. The plot line was interesting and keeps you listening. I did figure out who the killer was about half way through the book but that was a fluke because the reason I thought they were the killer turned out not to be right but they still ended up being the killer anyways. So I think most people will enjoy the book even if they figure out who the killer is early on, I did, and a lot of people might stay guessing till the end. The book is about a mystery writer Sophie Katz who has to find out who is trying to kill her by following the plot of her last book. I would classify this book as Chick Lit Mystery and I am looking forward to starting the next book in the series.
I enjoyed this book very much. Great cast of goofy characters. Narrator does a good job of slightly different voices for the different characters. I'll definitely be getting the other books in this series. If you like Stephanie Plum, you will probably like Sophie Katz.
The story started off a little slow but it is a really good mystery. After the first couple of chapters you do get into the book. There is no detail sex but you will like the story.
I really enjoyed this listen. The story is full of humor and also contains a good mystery. I often figure out the ending of a mystery, but I was kept guessing until the end. The characters are so interesting and likeable that I am looking forward to getting to know them even better in the sequel. I started the sequel immediately after finishing this one. To answer some of the other reviewers, you do find out if she gets the guy in the sequel. I liked this listen so much that I have now purchased every other Kyra Davis audiobook that is available on Audible.com. By the way, I also thought the narrator did a great job, and I do not understand the negative comments by some reviewers.
This book is the first in the sofie katz series and it rocks. The heroine is first class! its funny and very well thought out. Sofie can solve mysteries, date, and avoid family all in stilettos. a must for anyone who like chick lit or girl detectives
Ive read all the books by kyra davis and she is a great writer highly recommended.
