Vows, Vendettas, and a Little Black Dress

Overjoyed at Maryanne’s engagement, amateur sleuth Sophie Katz can’t wait for the wedding vows and party toasts to begin.

Dena may never walk again, and Sophie vows to marry her fists with the shooter’s face.

Publisher's Summary

The peach taffeta Bridesmaid dress- that should be Sophie’s problem. Not attempted murder.

Overjoyed at Maryanne’s engagement, amateur sleuth Sophie Katz can’t wait for the wedding vows and party toasts to begin. But then Dena—best friend, bridesmaid, and all-around vixen—is mysteriously shot just after the announcement. Leave this to the authorities? No way. Dena may never walk again, and Sophie vows to marry her fists with the shooter’s face.

Problem is, the number of suspects is off the charts—from jaded lovers to anti-free-lovers to just plain old haters. Dena’s made plenty of enemies thanks to her popular sex shop—and, yes, she’s no saint—but really, who deserves to be shot?

With an überlogical almost boyfriend condemning her vigilante quest, and a wedding planner going vicariously bridezilla over the dream princess wedding, Sophie’s barely thinking straight. But if she can keep her cool (and avoid all errant taffeta), she just might nab her man and save the (wedding) day.

Big if.

    "I love listening to Gabra Zackman"

    Gabra Zackman is perfect for the narration to the Sophie Katz books. I choose my recording as much for the narrator as for the author. I have read all the Sophie books, and this is my least favorite. It's not bad, but it goes on and drags a little in the last quarter. Also, I thought there was a little gratuitous sex that wasn't really that interesting nor did it contribute much to the plot. The plot itself was good, but it took longer than necessary to develop ad solve. I'm not sorry I invested the time in it, but don't think I would recommend this very strongly. And not nearly as highly as the other Sophie books.

    Would you try another book from Kyra Davis and/or Gabra Zackman?

    No


    What was most disappointing about Kyra Davis’s story?

    I think she tried to be edgy and it came through as cheesy. No suspense at all.


    What didn’t you like about Gabra Zackman’s performance?

    Mail voices are wimpy, female voices sound like they have colds.


    Any additional comments?

    This was a waste of time. I should have dumped it but I stuck it out.

    "Read them in order"

    This is another great book in a fun series - don't try to read them out of order - it will just confuse you. But DO read them if you like funky, fun mysteries with great characters.

    "Really good and nice surprise!"

    This is the first book of this series that I have read and it was so well done that I didn't realize it was the 5th book in the series. The past was mentioned, but you didn't need to have read the other books to understand everything and follow along or to totally fall in love with the series. The characters are quirky, entertaining, and well developed. The story kept you guessing and switching between potentially guilty parties. The narrator was nice to listen to and read at a good pace. When I finished this one, it made me want to reach for the next! Overall, it was a really pleasant and fast listen!

    "Boring"
    Any additional comments?

    Not worth the $4.95 I spent on this audio. I am a "child" of the 60's and still did not find this interesting. Stopped listenig after 2 hrs into the story. Tries to be clever and thought provoking but misses the mark by far.

    "Vows, Vendettas, and a Little Black Dress"

    I probably would have enjoyed this book a little more than I did had it not been for the narrator. She ends just about every sentence as if she were asking a question. That alone totally turned me off.
