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?

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.
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.
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.
Gotten to the story and not been so wordy.
She did not have much to work with.
I did not stay with the book long enough to meet all the characters.
no, just this author
all of them
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.
I might check out another of her series.
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.
Dana the completely slutty, vapid best friend.
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.
No, you cannot develop a lead character who is that stupid. This story is an insult to women and a particularly weak story line.
She was pretty good.
Not very likely.
Even less likely.
I hated this book. The Heroine is a ding batty, air headed, dim wit. The romance is so cloyingly predictable I found myself gagging. This book is not even worth a lazy beachside read.
