This one was too predictable throughout the story. It made Sophie appear to be a complete idiot. The amount of whining was unbelievable. There were so many times I was so tempted to stop listening, but I enjoy the series and kept thinking it would get better. This one was way off the mark.
Gabra Zackman has done a wonderful job with this series, but she seemed as off as the story did. Maybe the amount of whining was getting to her, too.
I'll try the next one and hope for the best. If you've never read any of the series, don't start with this one. Start from the beginning.
Not for a few years. But I would watch mini-series. I've reread some of Davis's other books from this series that I hadn't read for some time.
It has the sass of Suits (USA) and the character development of 30 Rock (NBC) on top of a sexy suspenseful plot.
No, I was thoroughly entertained throughout.
Great from start to finish, excited for the next one. I highly recommend the series.
maybe not on the edge of my seat in suspense but almost fell of weight bench while working out and listening to this book
Sophie and her friend at the sex trade show
lot's of laughable scenes in this book
This was my first book in the Sophie Katz series. I listened to the audio version. It was a fun, fluffy mystery story with a lot of good laughs along the way. I have to say Sophie in Vegas at a sex trade show/convention was a total riot (note to self don't listen to this while working out, you get funny looks from those around you when you are laughing to yourself). If you are looking for a good escape and some laughs along the way this book is a good choice. I will have to try some of Sophie's other books
I feel like my review requires an apology to Kyra Davis. I love these books. They're always so much fun. In fact my only complaint about the earlier books is the gratuitous sex scene thrown into each book. I just fast forward. They make me feel like a voyeur and they don't advance the plot. We get it. They like each other.
All of the earlier books have been the sort of thing I've devoured in a day or two. Yes, they're over the top and you have to enter an agreement with the writer that you will suspend disbelief and she won't make it too hard to do so. Sadly, in this book, she didn't keep up her end and I couldn't do my part either.
It felt like she wanted to write a spy thriller. It wasn't fun or funny. It was a labor. The secondary characters became tertiary. You didn't enjoy her relationships with her friends and family, they were merely props.
It was action packed, but instead of feeling exhilarated, I just felt tired.
That said, I liked all of the earlier books so much I will buy whatever comes next.
Ms Zackman is great. She brings the characters to life!
I love the Sophie Katz series, they're fun adventures that stand up to repeat listening, and the cast of zany characters is fantastic! Somehow, I don't find this installment quite as enjoyable as her previous ones. It may be due to the plot stretching the edge of disbelief; or that it lacks some of the lighthearted interludes of the previous tales; or that Sophie seems to have lost a little of her edge and feistiness. That being said, it's still an enjoyable listen with some laugh out loud moments and I'm eagerly looking forward to Sophie's next "situation"!
As with all the Sophie Katz novels, this is an easy, fun and interesting story.
Exciting, emotional and well written
Dena - she is a many layered character
Sophie and Dena - very interesting and diverse characters.
I feel in love with this series with the first book! The story line, humor, and suspense kept me wanting more and more. I hope there is another Sophie Katz in the works!
A gadabout with no room for heavy books, so love the audio ones.
I love the others, but this one was no where near as entertaining. The narrator changed voices mid character, and more than once pulled my focus from the story to cringe at the reading. This book fell flat.
I like this series, I hope there is more on the way. It is fun, sexy and makes a woman proud to be a woman. Thank you Kyra Davis, keep them comeing!
