Sophie Katz, bestselling mystery writer and amateur sleuth, has just discovered that Anatoly, her sexy Russian P.I boyfriend of six years is actually married to the daughter of a Russian mafia boss. Devastated by his betrayal, Sophie banishes him from their beautiful San Francisco Victorian home.
Desperate to distract their friend and pull her out of her depression, Dena and Marcus spirit Sophie away to Vegas for a "fun filled weekend" at a Sex Toy Trade Show. But bigger trouble awaits in Vegas. Anatoly is there; his beautiful Russian wife is there; and so is a dead body stuffed into a closet. And to make matters worse someone has gone out of their way to implicate Sophie in the murder. Sophie's completely over her head and when a mysterious man offers her help she's tempted to take it. But who is he and whose side is he on? It's also clear that whoever the bad guy is he would have no problem killing Anatoly, and although she may want to kill him herself, no one else is going to hurt Sophie's man.

the love affair is taking on the characteristics of totally uninteresting -- the set up for the break up sounds like high school -- the mis-information continues and continues. I have liked other books in this series but this wasn't one of them. Overall disappointing.
I don't know what is better, the amazing Gabra Zackman narrating in her signature "Sophie Katz" voices, seamlessly transferring from character to character without missing a beat...or the whitty dialogue of both the primary story, and the chapter beginning quotes.
This book made me laugh out loud many times and it was a quick, fun listen that kept you guessing on who the villians were all throughout.
Definately recommend! Listen to them all if you haven't already, this one was worth the wait!
Listen mostly to urban fantasy and suspense/thrillers but also enjoy mysteries, sci-fi, fantasy, romance, adventure, classic, modern, spiritual or general literature. And I always like a bit of romance in any of my stories.
Lots of Sophie and friends humor and wacky detective work. If you're a fan of the series you won't be disappointed. Gabra does a great job and is still one of my favorite narrators. Can't wait until Kyra writes another.
I just LOVE this series! I'm a very picky chick lit reader as too often the stories are so sweet, unbelievable and predictable that I can't stand it. But these books… these books are FUN. The characters are fantastic, the writing crisp, the plots complex and hilarious. Kyra Davis shows how great chick lit can be.
Got a different narrator, Tavia Gilbert, Jennifer Ikeda, Poter......
The narrator is why I couldn't finish, sorry. Maybe it is for preteens.
Hard to tell it was the narrator that made me give up.
I will from now on listen to the sample before buying a book. No matter how well it is written if the performance is bad.......
This one was too predictable throughout the story. It made Sophie appear to be a complete idiot. The amount of whining was unbelievable. There were so many times I was so tempted to stop listening, but I enjoy the series and kept thinking it would get better. This one was way off the mark.
Gabra Zackman has done a wonderful job with this series, but she seemed as off as the story did. Maybe the amount of whining was getting to her, too.
I'll try the next one and hope for the best. If you've never read any of the series, don't start with this one. Start from the beginning.
Not for a few years. But I would watch mini-series. I've reread some of Davis's other books from this series that I hadn't read for some time.
It has the sass of Suits (USA) and the character development of 30 Rock (NBC) on top of a sexy suspenseful plot.
No, I was thoroughly entertained throughout.
Great from start to finish, excited for the next one. I highly recommend the series.
I feel in love with this series with the first book! The story line, humor, and suspense kept me wanting more and more. I hope there is another Sophie Katz in the works!
A gadabout with no room for heavy books, so love the audio ones.
I love the others, but this one was no where near as entertaining. The narrator changed voices mid character, and more than once pulled my focus from the story to cringe at the reading. This book fell flat.
maybe not on the edge of my seat in suspense but almost fell of weight bench while working out and listening to this book
Sophie and her friend at the sex trade show
lot's of laughable scenes in this book
This was my first book in the Sophie Katz series. I listened to the audio version. It was a fun, fluffy mystery story with a lot of good laughs along the way. I have to say Sophie in Vegas at a sex trade show/convention was a total riot (note to self don't listen to this while working out, you get funny looks from those around you when you are laughing to yourself). If you are looking for a good escape and some laughs along the way this book is a good choice. I will have to try some of Sophie's other books
