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?

    Story
    "Book Offers A Little Romance & A Little Suspense"
    What did you like best about Spying in High Heels? What did you like least?

    Spying in High Heels offers a light suspense story with a little romance. The story was not intense enough for me.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Gemma Halliday? Why or why not?

    Probably not. This book was a good deal for $4.95, but I wouldn't spend a full credit on another Gemma Halliday.


    Did Caroline Shaffer do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    The voices weren't unique enough to enhance character development.


    Do you think Spying in High Heels needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    It doesn't.

    I enjoy light mystery, romance. This book was just perfect. Fun, mystery, romance, and a great narrator. Plan on listening to more of her books & more with this narrator.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Shades of Stephanie Plum. Slow start - fun read - brain fluff. There are some funny references.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Somewhat predictable ending.

    "It was fine..."
    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?


    Any additional comments?

    The story was fine. I wasn't blown away by it, but it was a good light summer read. If I could speak to the author, I'd ask why she felt it necessary to tell us every road number Maddie drove on. She did a lot of driving and it was distracting to be told the street and highway numbers.

    "Spying not my Favorite..."

    This series was recommended to me by a friend and while there a few memorable moments this series is not grabbing my attention enough to continue to follow it. There are better series out there with more likeable sleuths.

    "Loving Maddie!!!"
    Would you listen to Spying in High Heels again? Why?

    I would definately listen to the antics of Maddie over and over again.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    I love the mix of Maddie and Dana's "Lucy and Ethal" tatics, Mom and Faux Dad, plus the pure sex appeal of Jack makes you want to know whats next.


    What does Caroline Shaffer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her interpretation of Maddie is spot on


    If you could take any character from Spying in High Heels out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    This was a tough one for me because its a tie between Maddie and Dana. I think I would take them both just to see first hand how these two interact with each other.


    Any additional comments?

    this is a hilarious book series and listening to them now is even better! Caroline Shaffer brings Maddie to life and makes her even better! I will definately be listening to this series!
