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 felt like my best friend was confiding in me as I listened to this book. I'm amazed by how the narrator was able to make each voice unique and realistic, even those with Jewish, Russian, and Hispanic accents. The pace was just right. Great job!
This book was meant to be a light, entertaining read, and that's just what it was. I enjoyed listening to it.
We are now proud parents of a daughter and a wonderful son-in-law! He is also a child of The U. S. Navy, bonded over military time:)!
Ms Shaffer was wonderful. As for Gemma Holiday the "I'm late" drove me nuts.
That fact that she'd see clues and when she's in trouble then she puts it together. The "I'm late"
Very cheerful murder mystery with obligatory and effective romantic interest. I was nervous that the fashion designer angle would irritate me with lots of brand name dropping, etc. But it wasn't too much and treated with great humor. Very funny.
The heroine is about as annoying and unlikable as they get. I didn't care at all about what happened to her and couldn't understand why the cop was attracted to her. It also didn't make any sense that she'd try so hard to prove the innocence of her boyfriend of 5 months; especially after she finds out he's been lying to her. Very pointless, poorly written book.
