Sex, Murder, and a Double Latte | [Kyra Davis]

Sex, Murder, and a Double Latte

Thriller scribe Sophie Katz is as hard-boiled as a woman who drinks Grande Caramel Brownie Frappuccionos can be. So Sophie knows it's not paranoia, or post-divorce, living-alone-again jitters, when she becomes convinced that a crazed reader is sneaking into her apartment to reenact scenes from her books. The police, however, can't tell a good plot from an unmarked grave.

Publisher's Summary

When a mystery writer cries bloody murder, everyone blames her overactive imagination.

Thriller scribe Sophie Katz is as hard-boiled as a woman who drinks Grande Caramel Brownie Frappuccionos can be; maybe it's from a lifetime of fielding dumb comments about her half-black, half-Jewish ethnicity. ("My sister's married to a Polynesian! I just love your culture!") So Sophie knows it's not paranoia, or post-divorce, living-alone-again jitters, when she becomes convinced that a crazed reader is sneaking into her apartment to reenact scenes from her books. The police, however, can't tell a good plot from an unmarked grave.

When a filmmaker friend is brutally murdered in the manner of a death scene in one of his movies, Sophie becomes convinced that a copycat killer is on the loose...and that she's the next target. If she doesn't solve the mystery, her own best seller will spell out her doom. Cursing her grisly ending (why, oh, why did she have to pick the axe?), Sophie engages in some real-life gumshoe tactics.

The man who swoops in to save her in dark alleys at night is mysterious new love interest Anatoly Darinsky. Of course, if this were fiction, Anatoly would be her prime suspect.

Solve another case with Sophie.

    "Deceiving title but great story."
    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed this book. There were enough characters that you were guessing whodunit. The characters were hilarious and real. The narrator did a good job considering a lot was going on in the story. I am reading the next book in this series.

    I love to read! I love reading even more now with my Audible account. I probably read two to three books a month. And, yes, I have a life!

    "A real whodunit!"

    Okay for me it was. I figured it out, but then totally dismissed the murderer! What a great surprise at the end of the book! :) I thoroughly enjoyed this.

    Story
    "keeps your interest and keeps you guessing"

    I don't usually read this genre, preferring light fare that includes the supernatural like vampires and the like. This book was a surprising enjoyment, with lots of twists and turns, but not so many you get dizzy or can't keep track. Lots of humor intermixed and a fun chase of the bad-guy. All-in-all a quick and fun listen.

    "A pleasent listen."

    I very much enjoyed this book it always kept guessing and wondering what was going to happen next. It swears a little to much but, other than that it was very nice.

    "Silly, stupid, gross and downright dumb!"

    The only thing good was the narration. This book is a waste of time unless you like to listen to the “f” word, silly drawn out scenes and a plot that was dumb. Why did I listen to the whole thing? Again, good narration.

    "Fun Book!"

    I really enjoyed this audio book. The writing reminds me of Janet Evanovich's books. It was lots of fun and the reader was a joy. Can't say that for many audio books.

    "Awesome"

    I really enjoyed listening to this book. There were times that I laughed out loud, or was on the edge of my seat, I couldn't wait for it to end to find out who the killer was but at the same time I didn't want it to end. The reader did I good job with the different voices as well.

    "Great ironic low key read"

    This book is fun and Gabra Zackman does a great appropriately low-key read that's very funny.

    "Good Story Poor Delivery"

    I really enjoyed the story of Sex, Murder and a Double Latte. It was well constructed, and light without being frivolous. Chick Lit for the chicks who aren't entirely brainless. However, I thought the narrator was very poor. Her normal reading voice was OK and her Russian accent wasn't terrible, but she could not read men's voices AT all - mostly just a deep monotone. In fact, whenever she altered her voice to represent a new character she lost all color and texture. It was very disappointing. The story was good enough to keep me listening.
