Publisher's Summary

Halliday resumes the story of Maddie Springer, shoe designer and amateur sleuth, a week before her marriage to hunky Los Angeles police detective Jack Ramirez. When she finds her wedding planner face down in frosting with a knife sticking out of her back, she knows that to leave on time for their honeymoon, she needs to help Jack solve the case. Her two best friends step in, not only to help find the killer, but also to serve as her new wedding planners.

In between dress fittings and pedicures, Maddie and her crew visit everyone associated with the victim’s personal and professional life. Meanwhile, the guest list grows longer, and a tropical-themed ceremony coalesces, complete with giant tiki heads. As every lead turns into a dead end, Maddie’s big day seems doomed.

Critic Reviews

"I love how Gemma Halliday intertwines laughter and romance with grit, suspense and murder. Her characters have incredible depth, which makes you feel like you know them on a personal level. Her story, Mayhem in High Heels, sparkles with charm unlike any other murder mystery." (Romance Junkies)
"This fifth and final installment in Halliday's High Heels series is wonderfully entertaining, with an absorbing and complex mystery. Her pleasingly non-ass-kicking heroine - with her entourage of quirky and fascinating family and friends - makes this a fitting finale to these fun stories." (Romantic Times, 4 stars)
"Do not wait - rush right out and get Mayhem in High Heels and join Maddie and her gang for a thrilling mystery adventure!" (Romance Reviews Today)

Reader can't pronounce homicide

It's driving me nuts that in a mystery novel where one of the two main characters is a homicide detective, she keeps saying "home-o-side"
Not my favorite of the series, but still lively and entertaining.

Just love this series!

I just loove this series. The narrator is fantastic! Gemma does a great job explaining details from earlier in the series without it being redundant; allowing any person to pick up new at any point in the series.
