Publisher's Summary

Analyze this....

Chrissy McMullen has made a career leap, all the way from slinging drinks at Chicago's most notorious nightclub to dispensing psychotherapy from her sleek new practice in LA. Even if she can't quite shed her too-loud, too-curvy alter ego - or the brawling family that insists on claiming kinship. So when her most famous client, buff football star "Bomber" Bomstad, starts chasing her around her desk and getting, well...unzipped...Christina gets just a little miffed - until Bomber has the bad manners to drop dead at her feet.

Enter Jack Rivera, a no-nonsense detective with a grim attitude and a great butt, who's determined to prove this cocktail-waitress-turned-shrink was engaging in some very unethical behavior. Persuading Rivera that she's not a murderer isn't going to be easy. Plunging headfirst into a city full of people in need of some serious therapy, Chrissy will have to use all her street smarts, a good deal of sex appeal, and a little love to clear her name - and cancel an appointment with a killer.

    "A romantic comedy meets mystery"

    Note: this is not a cozy mystery. There are scenes with attempted rape, cussing, and graphic sexual scenes. Just mentioning for those who are sensitive to such topics.

    This book was a laugh out loud romantic comedy mystery. Christina is hilarious, and hearing her inner monologue adds a dimension which made this book very enjoyable. Christina finds herself in a bind when one of her clients dies in her office & she becomes the top suspect. That's when we meet Rivera, the head police in the investigation. There begins a game of cat and mouse going on with Chrissy & Rivera, which is sometimes funny but other times.. disturbing? Rivera is controlling and possessive and I get 50 shades of grey vibes. He seems to get off on being verbally aggressive and controlling with Christina, and I'm not a fan of that. But there are a lot of other great characters who round this book out, including Soleburg. Another touch I loved were the quotes at the beginning of each chapter. There are a lot of little touches like these which made this a great listen! I was voluntarily provided a review copy and gave my honest review

    "One of my all time favorites finally released to Audible!"

    I've been waiting years for the Lois Greiman "Un" series to be released in audio. Though it's been a couple years since I read it last, it quickly came back to me why I recommend this series to anyone that will listen. Chrissy McMullen is a smart, witty, and relatable character. I find myself caught up in the same emotions as her throughout the book...and the interaction between her and Rivera is laugh out loud entertaining.

    If you enjoyed the early Stephanie Plum series, be sure to check out Chrissy McMullen. You won't be disappointed...here's hoping Unplugged, Unscrewed and Unmanned are released on Audible soon!

    "Entertaining Listen!!!"

    It has been a long time since I had read this book and others by the author. I enjoyed the humor and it reminded me of all the bad luck Stephanie Plumb from another author's series encounters. This is a light listen with not as much character development as I wanted, but it is the first book in the series, so more might show up. The narrator did an excellent performance, and was new to me. I will look for more books by both narrator and author. My review is not a synopsis of the book, but rather my opinion of it. I was provided with this review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

    "I Laughed Out Loud (a lot)"

    There's a girl. There's a corpse. There's a sexy police detective. Aaaaand hijinks ensue.

    I happen to love this kind of rom-com mystery. Chrissy inner-dialogues herself through the strange circumstance of a client dropping dead at her feet (and the aftermath) with self-depreciation and wonderful humor.

    The narrator was good at differentiating characters (I mean, I could always tell who was talking) and didn't detract from the story.

    It was fun. I'm looking forward to more in this series.

    "4.5 Stars!"

    I thoroughly enjoyed this cozy mystery/rom-com. After a shock of a beginning, I was completely invested in seeing where this story would go. Chrissy's voice, inner musings and antics had me smiling and laughing often. The enemies/love interest was the perfect pull to keep me invested in the romantic outcome. Although, I wasn't surprised by the mystery reveal, I also wasn't entirely sure and the red herrings kept me guessing. I'm new to these types of mysteries with only a handful under my belt, but I fully intend to keep following Chrissy and her fun posse of secondary characters. Overall, a satisfying and fun read.

    I both read and listened to the audiobook intermittently. I'm a picky listener and often prefer reading, but the narrator was amazing and handled all of the different voice inflections for various characters really well. Not an easy feat and definitely a narrator I would listen to again. (Although I own a copy of the ebook, this is also a voluntary review of a complimentary copy of the audio verson)

    Story
    "Laugh Out Loud Funny"
    What made the experience of listening to Unzipped the most enjoyable?

    The narration was great. Lois Greiman did a great job giving each character their own individual personalities which is a key part of the audiobook experience.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The sense of humor. I'm a fan of irreverent, off-color humor and this book has its fair share of it. If you're part of the PC patrol--and there's nothing wrong with that--then this book may not be for you. But I think you would be missing out if you didn't at least give this book a try. Both my mother (aged 50 and pretty-PC) and I (aged 30 and not-so-PC) were cracking up throughout the novel.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    This question always lends itself to spoilers, so I'll just say that there were a few favorites, one of them maybe involving a little B&E.


    Any additional comments?

    I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. If you check out my other reviews, you'll see that this has zero influence on the reviews I leave. If you're a fan of strong, somewhat mouthy, occasionally clueless female amateur sleuths, then you're probably going to enjoy this book.

    "Awesome Narration, Decent Mystery"

    The narration was excellent! This is the first time I've listened to an audiobook narrated by Barbara Benjamin-Creel, but it won't be the last. If I had read this book myself, I don't think the humorous moments would have registered, but Benjamin-Creel has perfect timing and really enhanced the story. Hopefully, she'll start narrating more fiction titles in the future.

    The mystery was fairly interesting and I probably would have given it a three-star rating if it weren't interspersed with some icky moments that made it hard for me to find the book as entertaining as it was meant to be. Examples: nearly all of Chrissy's interactions with JD, Rivera's unrelenting and excessive hostility toward Chrissy, and especially Chrissy's prejudices, which also had me scratching my head and wondering what the author was thinking. On my last point, here's an excerpt of her thoughts on a bar (and its patrons) she visits:

    "...I was hardly dressed provocatively, and yet I felt strangely exposed in the thin ivory rayon and Gucci sandals. But full body armor might have been incongruous with the Hole’s decor-early pigsty. I had only given his bar of choice a cursory glance upon arrival, but I was feeling paler by the minute and beginning to suspect the clientele hadn’t originated on some drafty northern isle, like that from which mine had tended to descend." Um OK. So, she's uncomfortable and is wishing for full body armor because the clientele isn't white? Really?

    If that excerpt doesn't bother you, and you want to listen to a light, humorous mystery, then you'll probably enjoy Unzipped and you'll definitely enjoy the narration.

    "fun and mysterious!"

    I really enjoyed this mystery rom-com - it had me laughing out loud. The narration was perfect - excellent differentiating voices. This is the first book I've read by this author and I can't wait to read more.

    "Stupid"

    I couldn't get passed the first 5 chapters. The lead character is stupid and makes clumsy mistakes with the police. The police are stereotypical and flat.
