    "I'm done ... No more Maddie Springer for me!"
    Would you try another book from Gemma Halliday and/or Caroline Schaffer?

    Yes, I would try another book from Gemma Halliday and Caroline Schaffer. I just can't take anymore of the unbelievable idiotic adventures of Maddie Springer.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Gemma Halliday again?

    Yes


    Have you listened to any of Caroline Schaffer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No redeeming qualities at all ... zero, ziltch, nada!


    Any additional comments?

    I like goofy, silly, slapstick, kind of girls doing crazy stuff. Book 3 and 4 made me want to gag! Actually, they made me write a review. Way to idiotic for my taste. I thought Maddie was zany in books 1 and 2 by book 3 she became unrealistic not even in a good fiction way.

    "No suprise here"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Maybe. The series is a knockoff of the Stephanie Plum books. So, if you like those, these will be familiar. Not quite as good, but still entertaining


    If you’ve listened to books by Gemma Halliday before, how does this one compare?

    I got the whole series, listening to them in order, one after another. No better or worse than the last one I listened to,


    Did Caroline Shaffer do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Yeah


    Could you see Alibi in High Heels being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    no, not at all

    "What a disappointment"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    As somebody who loved the Stephanie Plum novels, I bought the first six of this series based on the reviews. Where Janet Evanovich has created a likeable character in Stephanie and surrounded her with larger than life characters, Gemma Halliday has created a female character in Maddie Springer who is two dimensional, predictable and not very likeable. She is clearly following an Evanovich style formula with the love interest being a Latin policeman (Spanish not Italian origin) and a series of ridiculous and uninteresting characters.

    It may be an LA thing, but if I was a woman, I would not want to be portrayed as being so superficial. Had a man written this story, he would have been pilloried for viewing women as being so shallow.

    I would be very surprised if people would enjoy this as a caricature of LA life. As a thriller/mystery story, the plot was poor, the dialogue worse and my interest diminished to non-existent.


    What was most disappointing about Gemma Halliday’s story?

    Of the six books I have bought, I have listened to one and a half, and will not listen to the rest.


    What didn’t you like about Caroline Shaffer’s performance?

    Well read, but could not hide the lack of quality in the prose.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Irritation and disappointment.

    "Ok story - but I cant deal with the narrator!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Alibi in High Heels to be better than the print version?

    I've listened to a few of the high heels books now. I do enjoy the stories for light listening... but I absolutely CANNOT handle the voice of the narrator anymore. This will be the last one.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Her voice is very pitchy and high...
