When Brandi Michaels discovers her fiancé hopping a flight to Vegas to marry his girlfriend, she pawns her engagement ring, buys herself a fabulous outfit, and spends one sultry night in the arms of a gorgeous Italian stranger named Roberto Bartolini. When Brandi becomes the mark for a killer, she has no choice but to turn to Roberto – a man who’s destined to be either her savior or her downfall. But one thing’s for sure: She’s not going down without a fight.
This is a light, funny novel that will keep you interested and chuckling the whole time. While I agree that the narrater has some strange voices for some of the men, that was only a minor distraction to a very fun 'read.'

Sometimes you just want to relax and listen to something that has it all. This book has comedy, sex, and drama. It's not too serious, but sometimes after a long horrible day, I can't take too much real and this book hit the spot for me. I was hesitate about getting it, but was pleased I did.

What disappointed you about Trouble in High Heels?
I bought this book a while ago along with a couple others and im now getting around to listening to them and this one i was just not completely thrilled with. I was a bit slow and tedious compared to some of her others. Amanda Ronconi is always a good narrator just not impressed with the story line.
Would you be willing to try another one of Amanda Ronconi’s performances?
Yes, I really like Amanda Ronconi as a narrator.
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Trouble in High Heels?
I wouldn't cut a scene the whole book was just slow moving for me and the story line wasnt that impressive compared to some of her other books.
Any additional comments?
I will still continue listening to Christina Dodd's books majority of them are very well written and very well narrated by Amanda.

A light romance and although far from my favorite it was an easy listen. The book was a bit more of the mafia genre than I usually like, which is just not my taste. Overall I liked the heroine but she was sometimes a bit of a rag. Hero seemed to perfect to be true, but since this is fiction he was scrumptious Count. I did enjoy this book even with its minor faults. I would read another book from this author if there was a sale, but probably not if I had to pay full price or a credit. Narrator was good, I have always enjoyed her work.

Love this narrator, have listened to her with Molly Harper's "Nice Girls" series, and she does and excellent job with these types of quirky, smirky books. It is fun at times, and serious at times. Predictable, but who cares. Definitely a chick flick type of book, that you can listen too, laugh at times, and feel good at the end of it.

What made the experience of listening to Trouble in High Heels the most enjoyable?
I found this story to be kind of sappy and highly predictable, but it felt like a guilty pleasure that I still really enjoyed it.
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
The story was light and fun; I wish it was less predictable, but I think if that was changed, it probably won't have had the same light fun.
Which character – as performed by Amanda Ronconi – was your favorite?
Roberto, his voice was so cliche, but I just loved it.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
I was surprised by some of the sexier scenes, it seemed kind of out of place, I wasn't offended by it or anything, they just seemed suddenly graphic, then back to a normal story.

This is the perfect read when you want to escape, and you want to chuckle! The heroine is the kind I like - she doesn't take guff from anyone (except her father, and that changes). The hero is sexy, romantic, and funny. He also turns out to be vulnerable. A light, fun story.
Excellent narration! She voiced the various characters perfectly. I will look for more from this narrator!
You also have to just not think about whether the story all makes sense - just go with the flow. The supposed actions of the FBI or CIA have nothing to do with reality, and the story line about Roberto's father simply isn't needed in the story. Still, I enjoyed it and it made a day of cleaning out the basement go quickly and pleasurably!

The book was fine. I enjoyed it from start to finish, but it took me several months to make it through. This was a book that I could only tolerate in small doses, it was just to trite and obvious. I wanted to like it, it had all the elements that I want it this kind of book: the mystery, the romance, the doodah of an ex; but the whole was not more than the sum of its parts. It was not a waste of a credit, but just be aware that this is what I often refer to as a "cotton candy" book. Light, obnoxiously sweet, and only to be handled in smallish bites.

Got it on sale and figured I'd give it a try. I ended up staying up way too late to keep listening. It's light and cute, no life-changing lessons learned, but it was just a lot of fun to listen to. I thought it actually had kind of a Molly Harper feel to it as far as the sarcasm and banter between the characters, but that may be just because Amanda Ronconi has a way of bringing "smart-alec-isms" to life. Definitely a fun distraction for days when menial tasks are on the agenda.
