From award-winning author Sibel Hodge comes a screwball comedy-mystery, combining murder and mayhem with romance and laughter....
Amber Fox has been making too many mistakes, and something's got to give...For starters, Amber accidentally shoots Chief Inspector Janice Skipper and gets thrown off the police force. Oops! Then, she accepts a job as an insurance investigator from her ex-fiancé, Brad Beckett. Only Brad thinks they've still got unfinished business in the romance department, making for a steamier working environment than Amber counted on. And when fashion designer Umberto Fandango goes missing, Amber's investigative skills are put to the ultimate test. Nothing about the case is what it seems, and to make matters worse, Amber's arch-enemy, Chief Inspector Skipper, is also investigating the disappearance. If Amber wants her old job back, she's in a race against time to solve the mystery before Skipper does...all the while dodging her ex-fiancé, her own mixed up feelings, and a couple of crazy mobsters. Who is Umberto Fandango? Is he dead? And can Amber stay one step ahead to stay alive? (Formerly published under the title The Fashion Police.)

The narrator's accent made listening unforgettable along with the ongoing internal dialogue of the hilarious Ms Fox.
The wacky Ms Fox, yet she manged to get the job done -- and stay alive.
Her accent and fun way of expressing the characters, especially Ms. Fox. The things she says and thinks, were delivered straight where if she had tried to dramatize them it would not have the same affect.
This was a delightful listen. A former police detective having been pushed from the force by an obnoxious detective who wanted her boyfriend and job. She has an unforgettable family, an ex husband she still has the hots for and a hottie boyfriend she also wants. Part of the story was her trying to decide which man she really wanted and the half working the case from her ex's insurance firm's side and dealing with the same case that her cop boyfriend is working. You will understand why she has such a hard time deciding which man and the end choice will surprise you. I heartily recommend this it was a great one.
I was gifted the audio.
The English accent that helped remind me where this was taking place. A few words that are used in England which are different from what we would say.
Kind of Stephanie Plum light with an English twist.
When a weapon discharged and a toe suffered the consequences.
I was kept amused throughout.
