How steamy is it? Hot Damn

Publisher's Summary

The peach taffeta Bridesmaid dress- that should be Sophie’s problem. Not attempted murder.

Overjoyed at Maryanne’s engagement, amateur sleuth Sophie Katz can’t wait for the wedding vows and party toasts to begin. But then Dena—best friend, bridesmaid, and all-around vixen—is mysteriously shot just after the announcement. Leave this to the authorities? No way. Dena may never walk again, and Sophie vows to marry her fists with the shooter’s face.

Problem is, the number of suspects is off the charts—from jaded lovers to anti-free-lovers to just plain old haters. Dena’s made plenty of enemies thanks to her popular sex shop—and, yes, she’s no saint—but really, who deserves to be shot?

With an überlogical almost boyfriend condemning her vigilante quest, and a wedding planner going vicariously bridezilla over the dream princess wedding, Sophie’s barely thinking straight. But if she can keep her cool (and avoid all errant taffeta), she just might nab her man and save the (wedding) day.

Big if.

A Must Read!

This is a must read who-dunnit. Within minutes, Dena is shot in Maryanne's apartment and the rest of the novel is a classily woven who-done-it. There are many twist, turns and interesting backstories. Anatoly get fleshed out and we learn that he has secrets -- so there is a lot of meat in the backstories.

Garra Zackman continue to do a great job narrating and I've become accustomed to her reasonable pace and excellent control of the character interactions.

You want to read this novel and you are going to want to get to the next one as soon as possible. Keep the series going, its still has legs.

Not worth a credit or even the sale price

The narrator did a lousy job with the accents. The plot and the characters were mundane. It was paced like a typical cookie-cutter Harlequin romance-- no surprises

Very good

My favorite in the series so far. I guess you learn more about the characters under extremes.

Confusing, long winded overuse of bad language.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Cut out the sexual graphic descriptions/verbiage.

Would you recommend Vows, Vendettas, and a Little Black Dress to your friends? Why or why not?

No, needs to be cleaned up and abridged.

What three words best describe Gabra Zackman’s voice?


Reasonable n clear

Could you see Vows, Vendettas, and a Little Black Dress being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

No idea. Would need to be a late night movie

Any additional comments?

I had anticipated this book being similar to a Stephanie PLum novel, no where near.

Really Good!

Great story! If you are a fan of the series, this one was much better than the last. Excellent cliff-hanger at the end. Good character distinction in the narration except for the fact that every now and then the narrator would slip and use the wrong voice for a character. Other than that, I really enjoyed this one!

Not worth your time or credit

I guess I did not expect much, but I at least hoped it would be a little fun. It was boring and not worth the time. Little plot and shallow characters.

Thoroughly unlikable characters

What's meant to be smart, hip, funny and clever turns out to be flat, disagreeable and completey boring. What is this story's ultimate downfall isn't the mediocre reading, but the fact that it's simply not well-written. The main character, Sophie, in particular is hypocritical, judgmental and downright stupid, all the while the author tries to make the audience believe, Sophie, is smart, funny and likable. In fact most of the characters in the book are thoroughly unpleasant and the ones who aren't are woefully underdeveloped. I'm glad I bought this while it was on sale, but unfortunately, unlike a book, I can't give it away even to a charity. I'm stuck with the dud.
