Spying In High Heels (Gemma Halliday) Review

When my sister told me about these books, I immediately knew I would fall in love. A Los Angelas based Shoe Designer who stumbles upon a murder investigation and is determined to get to the end before the cops? Mix that with Manolo's and one seriously sexy Hispanic Cop, and I'm ready to dig in!

For some reason, I can't upload a picture. Hopefully I will get that figured out and fixed soon. So in the meanwhile, here is the Goodreads page.

The opening to the book immediately caught my attention. Meet Maddie Springer. Los Angelas shoe designer with dreams of having her own label one day. But for now she is designing kiddy shoes. Think Spongebob Rain Boots and Dora Jelly Sandals.

Maddie is a funny if somewhat snarky leading lady. Her boyfriend is a high profile lawyer, who after blowing her off for lunch, goes missing. Duhn duhn! This leads Maddie to breaking into his office, and home, and eventually getting herself knee deep into a fraud/theft/murder investigation, all while building insane sexual tension with super hotty Detective Ramirez.

While all this is transpiring, her crazy post menopausal mother is planning her wedding to a (mostly heterosexual) hair stylist to the stars, and the lovely wonderful 300 pounds mu mu sporting psychic Mrs. R is desperately trying to cleanse every ones shakras. Add to this Maddie's best friend, sex crazed and full of drama.

The story is cute, fun, and an easy read. And the end definitely leaves you wanting more.

4 out of 5 Stars.
