Helpful Score: 2
This book was just alright, but I don't think I'll be reading more in the series. I really enjoy the more humorous end of the cozy mystery spectrum, and I didn't think Andy was very funny. I liked her character, but the whole debutante/rich-people thing got on my nerves after awhile.
Enjoy a romp through mystery and Dallas society with a most reluctant debutante. Andy is a free spirit more likely to be waiting tables in a topless bar than attending the high society functions scheduled by her mother - especially when Andy's on the trail of a murderer!
First in a series and it is a total hoot! Of course, it helps I'm a native Dallasite and know the locales and the attitudes so well. Lots of the conclusions I jumped to early on in the book did not pan out at the end and I enjoy being surprised. I'm really looking forward to reading more about Andy Kendricks and her rebellious attitudes toward Dallas high society.
I just finished this book and really liked it! I think I like it because it is set in Dallas which is the area of Texas that I live (although not in Dallas!) that I can relate to many places they mention. I also like that she is a web designer (I do that on the side) but wish they would talk about that more than they do. I think there has been one "scene" that talked about it.
a very enjoyable cozy, needs a little more development of the characters but I'm sure the 2nd one will be better
Not as cosy as I feared. Loved Andrea's mom, Cissy! I used to live in Dallas, though never a deb, so I really enjoyed picturing the places and streets mentioned. I have know some Cissys though and they are a hoot and a joy!
A debutante who bucks the system and is her own person is called by her closest friend from high school. The friend is accused of murdering her boss and even though the deb hasn't seen her for 10 years she knows she cannot be guilty and sets out to prove it. Very good book.
