Spying in High Heels | [Gemma Halliday]

Spying in High Heels

L.A. shoe designer, Maddie Springer, lives her life by three rules: Fashion. Fashion. Fashion. But when she stumbles upon the work of a brutal killer, her life takes an unexpected turn from Manolos to murder. And things only get worse when her boyfriend disappears - along with $20 million in embezzled funds - and her every move is suddenly under scrutiny by the LAPD's sexiest cop. With the help of her post-menopausal bridezilla of a mother, a 300-pound psychic and one seriously oversexed best friend, Maddie finds herself stepping out of her stilettos and onto the trail of a murderer. But can she catch a killer before the killer catches up to her?

    Tell us about yourself! I have been listening to books for 20 years. They get me through long drives, house work and walks with the dog.

    I love audibles books. I drive alot almost everyday so I listen to books on my way! I really like romantic suspense mysteries, but hate to read stories that constantly have the word God like its just another word intead. Also in the romance department I really like the romance description kept to a minimum and leave a few thing to the imagination. I like books with a sense of humor too .

    Story
    "High Heels Fun"
    Would you try another book from Gemma Halliday and/or Caroline Shaffer?

    I love the high heels series. Mystery with a sense of humor.


    What other book might you compare Spying in High Heels to and why?

    It's not the level of Stephanie Plum by Janet Evanovich's but it is similar in tone and story line.


    What three words best describe Caroline Shaffer’s voice?

    Calm mid-tone.


    Any additional comments?

    I love mystery stories and those that include humor are my favorites

    Story
    "Cute cozy mystery"

    The first book in the series with Maddie Springer, children's shoe designer, being a reluctant and at times bumbling detective - think Inspector Clouseau. The narration was nicely done and the overall story was cute with some chuckles along the way. The only annoying part was the too often mentioned EPT test.

    Story
    "Chick flick - not for men"

    Being a middle aged man I have difficulties in understanding the main character in her mascara deliberations and love for Prada aso. But then again - I am not supposed to.
    Caroline Schaffer narrates perfectly well the emptybrained blonde.
    With all that said, the story is well put together.
    So if you're into fashion, female and in your twenties this just might be the perfect book for you.

    "Fun & Playful"

    A fun listen, similar to the Stephanie Plum novels, but can stand on its own merit. I enjoyed it enough to listen to more of the series.

    Story
    "Too Wordy"
    What disappointed you about Spying in High Heels?

    It just goes on and on about fashion. I finally gave up because there did not seem to be a plot of any sort, just fashion statements.


    What could Gemma Halliday have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Gotten to the story and not been so wordy.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    She did not have much to work with.


    What character would you cut from Spying in High Heels?

    I did not stay with the book long enough to meet all the characters.

    "For teenagers only"
    What would have made Spying in High Heels better?

    a storyline


    Has Spying in High Heels turned you off from other books in this genre?

    no, just this author


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Caroline Shaffer?

    all of them


    Any additional comments?

    unless you're a teenager pretending to be 30 and only want stream of consciousness egotistical drivel from the "ME" generation, don't bother to even start this book.
