All Molly Forrester wants is to find that one big story that can redirect her journalism career away from the sex/relationship advice column she writes for Zeitgeist magazine ("wedged somewhere between Marie Claire and Cosmo") and back to the serious news business. But she didn't expect to trip over it, especially when "it" turned out to be the bloody body of one of her coworkers, and she certainly didn't expect to ruin her brand new Jimmy Choos over it. Never mind, though - she knows that solving the murder of one of the magazine world's most notorious lady's men will solve all her problems, including assuaging her guilt for blowing a month's salary on a pair of shoes ruined in one night. All Molly needs is a little help from her girlfriends, and perhaps a few detecting lessons from that cute homicide detective.... Or is he cozying up because he thinks she's a killer?
Sheryl Anderson delivers this totally charming, wildly clever, and puzzling debut about murder - and sex - in the Big Apple. What her characters find is that compared to negotiating Manhattan's singles scene, solving one eensy teensy stabbing shouldn't be that big a deal, right?
This is a good start to a good series. I read the forth book sometime time ago. I enjoyed it as well. The characters and the plot are well written. The dialogue is fun and sassy. I especially enjoyed the relationships of the three women and of Molly and the detective. I hope all of the books are made available in the near future.

Great story with Manhattan as a backdrop is familiar to this NYC resident. Enjoy the friendship between the ladies and the plot. I've bought the entire series and this is my second read. Only hitch is the narrator's voice. Some of the voices, esp Cassidy and Edwards sound like a talking zombie impression, but not insurmountable. Can't wait for book five.
What was most disappointing about Sheryl Anderson’s story?
Narrator was terrible! This might have been a really great book, but i just could not stand the narrator. I tried to listen to this book twice, but just could not listen to her.
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Meghan Kane Haseman?
Hilary Huber, Amanda Ronconi, Susan Erickson......
