L.A. shoe designer, Maddie Springer, lives her life by three rules: Fashion. Fashion. Fashion.

With the help of her post-menopausal bridezilla of a mother, a 300 pound psychic and one seriously oversexed best friend, Maddie finds herself stepping out of her stilettos and onto the trail of a murderer. But can she catch a killer before the killer catches up to her.… (mehr)

This was cute, fun and light hearted. I think I will probably continue with the series. I need to read some more about Detective Ramirez! ( )

Didn't like it to start, but the character really grew on me. Too much of a fixation on designer duds and such in the beginning, but Maddie was funny and engaging (and pretty much a disaster) and I enjoyed the book. Nothing earth-shattering, but a silly, fun read. ( )

This was an enjoyable little mystery. Not great, but not bad either. My favorite character of the book is the cop, Jack Ramirez. He seemed the most realistic and reacted to situations in a normal fashion. Maddie, the heroine, frequently does things that made me want to yell at her. Her refusal to take a pregnancy test being one of those things. It is impossible to guess the murderer, because we aren't in possession of all the facts. (Actually, you can guess the murderer, because there are only so many characters. But the motive isn't clear until it is explained.) ( )

Had a bad day? Too much on your mind or so much work that you really can't spend too much thought or time but of course you have to read? Then this book is for you. The story is about Maddie Springer a fashion model wannabe whose height challenge helped her to decide to become a shoe designer instead. Maddie has a small problem - she may be pregnant and her boyfriend has disappeared so she decides to hunt him down. Along the way she meets a hot detective and solves a mystery with her shoe knowledge.

Maddie is the ultimate blond Valley girl so the language is not that of an English major and pretty much revolves around shoes, shopping and physical appearance. But if you can look past that and just want a light-hearted read to satisfy that book addiction this book may satisfy because it does have some funny, outrageous moments and the mystery was a little more than the writing would lead you believe.

No erotica and minimal explicit violence despite two murders. Lots of OC references and boob talk. Loads of situational humor. The publisher's blurb doesn't tell you that Maddy designs children's shoes, or that her mother's idea of a bachelorette party is a male strip club. All I can say without doing the spoiler thing is that I laughed myself silly, and the suspense and plot twists were great! ( )

For Mary Ellen Halliday Thompson. She never wore Manolos, Pradas, or Choos, but with a style undeniable, no one will ever fill her shoes. We miss you, Grandma.

I was late. And I don't mean the kind of late where I spent too much time doing my hair and was now stuck in traffic.
