Things are looking up for Addison Holmes. She's about to take her P.I. exams, she's living in sin with the man of her dreams, and she hasn't had a phone call from her mother in three whole days. But she should have known things were too good to last.
When Rosemarie Valentine's fingerprints are found on the murder weapon used to kill a sex shop owner, it's up to Addison and the gang to clear her name before Rosemarie is thrown in the pokey with no hope of getting out again.
With the help of Nick, Savage, Kate, and Addison's mom and sister, what could possibly go wrong?

I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!
I prefer Liliana Hart's JJ Graves to Addison Holmes. Audible calls this modern detective, but it is chick lit. It's not my cup of tea, but it is funny and only 5 hours in length. The novel is set in the Savannah Georgia area. Addison is working on passing her PI exams when her friend is indicted for murder. Her real focus is almost totally on her sex/love life as well as that of her mother, sister, and friend.
The book is written in the first person. The narration is especially good. The narrator is from the mid west, but her southern accent is perfect.
This is a funny and enjoyable mystery. I enjoy the characters and their antics. The only I didn't enjoy was the love triangle. I find it to be a distraction to an otherwise good story.
On the performance end, Lance's accent changed a bit, and that was disconcerting.
As for the storyline, I found it jumped the shark a bit. Why would she give someone that item and how would they have known? I don't want to post spoilers, so I'll leave it at that. It was just a little off to me.
And as for Addison and Nick, he should have been filing for a restraining order not seeking her out!! And I don't like Savage. He knows Addison is with Nick, but he keeps sniffing around.
"The potpourri episode cracked me up"
What a rollercoaster ride! And another wonderfully narrated novel with characters whose voices i can 'hear' when I switch from whisper sync to reading. Next to JJ Graves, Addison Holmes is one of my favourite characters of all times. She is sassy, funny and FLAWED. Her quirks make her a natural magnate for trouble and the men in her life make for some awkward yet some wonderfully funny moments. With a family like hers and friends as nuts as she is, her life is a constant adventure and reading these books make for thoroughly enjoyable entertainment from cover to cover. I find that I cannot put these books down and usually read till the early hours of the morning, unable to put them down. This fourth instalment was no different and the ending makes me wonder how long the poor woman will have to keep waiting for her happy ever after? But then, this is Addison Holmes we are talking about...
