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?

I don't know how I kept listening. Maddie is whiny and idiotic. Ramirez is sexy but sounds like he's from the east coast rather than California. Over all the story dragged and irritated me in a way that doesn't entice me to read the next book.
Well had fun, listening to thisCaroline Shafer made it very enjoyable. Characters were fun to get too know an looking forward to the next book, soon as I get my next set of credits
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 liked this book. It was light and entertaining. I liked the pace of the narrator, the characters and the humor.
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 .
I like the idea of reading about the same characters in a series.
I siad it once I will say it again Loved the storry, a bit to descriptive in romance scenes,and Dont really care for using Gods name in vain. but the humor is great!
I love the high heels series. Mystery with a sense of humor.
It's not the level of Stephanie Plum by Janet Evanovich's but it is similar in tone and story line.
I love mystery stories and those that include humor are my favorites
Maddie is a very likeable character and the writing is fun and witty. I love that the protagonist is a headstrong career woman.
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.
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.
