But when she discovers that the handsome investigator is undercover, lying to her about his identity and convinced she’s involved with the crimes, he’ll learn what thigh high in trouble really means….

"A book by Christina Dodd is like a glass of champagne…sparkling and sinfully delicious.” (Lisa Kleypas)
For me, this book had it all - good story, great character development, comedy and heat! I literally couldn't stop listening and stayed up well into the night to finish. Also, the narration is great! This was, by far, my favorite of the series.
Good narration and fun plot points didn't do much to mask that there were parts in this book that just didn't make sense--like how they main character is supposed to be so smart but then is nonsensically blackmailed--more than once! Same goes for the pace of the relationship, which seems to happen within a week.
Entertaining enough, but not exactly smart chick lit. I'm also not sure why the title or "cover art" are what they are--it doesn't really have anything to do with the story. So wierd! They even mention red heels a few times in the book, yet the cover model is wearing black. I haven't listened to anything else from this author, but it just seems like this book was kind of slapped together and just makes enough sense to pass.
This was a really great story, well written, well read by the narrator. The chemistry between the 2 main characters was intense! Some laugh-out-loud parts, especially with the "aunts".
To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.
YES!! The story hooks you from the beginning and doesn't let go. I stayed up till 5 AM listening to this story. Both protagonists were flawed with their lil idiosyncracies (sp.) however, the chemistry was off the charts.
Virgin River. Because there wasn't any parts that dragged you are reeled in and hooked til the very end.
I cried when he was shot the second time, but the Aunts kept me laughing, I couldn't wait to see what they would do next or their rationale for their antics.
This is a book that I will be listening to again and again.
Natalie Ross is a fantastic performer.
I really got a kick out of these 2 old Aunties. Would lhave liked to have seen the bank manager get more of a pay back. But still enjoyed the story.
I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.
I really enjoyed this book. It's a mixture of my favorite things, a sexy relationship, crime, drama and a shot of humor. Yes this one made me a very happy listener. It was worth my credit, but I got it on sale and that's fine too.
I have never been much of a reader until I discovered Audible!!!!
exciting, lusty and nostalgic
It was not predicatable and it gave from what I see as an "insiders view" of New Orleans during Mardi Gras.
The diversity of the charactors pulled me into the story.
LOL...the Doll sisters.
Bless your heart.
The title is decieving, it's a must listen.......I listened to it twice simply because I enjoyed it so much.
My first Christina Dodd book. I loved the story, the characters and the narrator. Each character is very unique and Natalie Ross is right on with the voices and tempo of the book. I have listened to this book three times and I will listen to it again because it is so enjoyable. Definitely worth the credit.
WARNING: cliche ahead! I completely judged this book by the cover. Fortunately, the writing and dialogue nuances were so perfectly written without being a gaffe, I was pleasantly surprised! I lot of that was probably helped by the narrator who had the a wonderful tempo, inflections and Cajun accent. Great story!
