Publisher's Summary

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?

    Story
    "Skipped to the end"
    Would you try another book from Gemma Halliday and/or Caroline Shaffer?

    Ms Shaffer was wonderful. As for Gemma Holiday the "I'm late" drove me nuts.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Not sure


    Which scene was your favorite?

    None


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Spying in High Heels?

    That fact that she'd see clues and when she's in trouble then she puts it together. The "I'm late"

    "Great fun!"

    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.

    "Not worth the time"

    I found the female lead annoying. Hanging in to a boyfriend that was clearly not worth it. I did not find her likable in any way.

    "Good book"

    Good book, funny parts, stupid parts, but overall good book, narrator was great, story was good, didn't get too overboard on description of space.

    "Annoying, unlikable heroine"
    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Copycat book"

    This was so much like the Evanovich books but no grandmother to enhance it! Ramirez even wore a black shirt like the other series ! The narrator was GREAT! She sounded exactly the way I thought that Maddie would sound. She made the story! I wanted to know the ending but I was disappointed that it was so similar to the other 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.

    Story
    "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?

    don't know


    What character would you cut from Spying in High Heels?

    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.

    Story
    "Self-absorbed, unlikeable heroine"
    Would you ever listen to anything by Gemma Halliday again?

    I might check out another of her series.


    What aspect of Caroline Shaffer’s performance would you have changed?

    There was one point towards the end where it sounded almost as if the voice completely changed. It was incredibly distracting for a few minutes.


    What character would you cut from Spying in High Heels?

    Dana the completely slutty, vapid best friend.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm not exactly sure why anyone want to read a book about a a ditzy woman trying to solve her married boyfriend's accused crime. I found Maddie, the main character, completely unlikeable. Completely self-absorbed, shallow and just...well...air-headed. The story itself was cute, but the character development non-existent. And I had a hard time relating or caring as she continued to hem and haw over her lying, cheating, criminal boyfriend.
