From Publishers Weekly: "Mix a splash of Carrie Bradshaw, a dash of Stephanie Plum and a wee bit of Kinsey Millhone and you have Molly Forrester, advice columnist ("You Can Tell Me") for Zeitgeist magazine by day and amateur sleuth by night. At the start of Anderson's debut comic crime novel, Forrester literally steps in it-gooey blood, that is-when she returns to the office late one night and stumbles over a dead coworker. Molly's spanking new Jimmy Choos are covered in blood and she's soon knee-deep in sex, lies and crime-scene tape. Thrown into the fray are a hottie cop named Kyle Edwards; Molly's two gal pals, lawyer Cassady Lynch and event planner Tricia Vincent; and soon-to-be ex-boyfriend Peter Mulcahey, who happens to be a reporter for a rival magazine. Can Molly solve the murder and segue into a serious writing career? Or is using the death of a coworker as a major career move utterly uncouth? ("I always knew I'd make my mark on the world. I just didn't expect it to be one of those chalk outlines they draw around dead bodies.") While Molly explores her options, there's a second murder, and financial irregularities pop up in Zeitgeist's accounting department. Ample laughs help propel a well-crafted plot."

From Booklist: "A pseudonymous husband-and-wife writing team debuts a series sure to please Sex and the City fans. In fact, similarities between Sex heroine Carrie Bradshaw and Anderson's Molly Forrester abound: both are Manhattan columnists who lust after expensive shoes and often pick the wrong man. Like Carrie, Molly has beautiful and wealthy New York sidekicks, Cassady and Tricia, both of whom have plenty of time and money. Molly's rather unexciting job at Zeitgeist magazine heats up when she and Cassady visit the office at night and stumble over the dead body of advertising director Teddy Reynolds. If she can find the killer, Molly will have a story she can peddle to bigger magazines--and thus move up a notch on the career ladder. With Teddy's many mistresses and enemies, however, that will be no easy task. Not helping is Molly's attraction to handsome homicide detective Kyle Edwards. Swanky New York locales and designer accessories abound in this fun if slightly implausible tale. For readers who care more about Prada than police procedure."

This was such a great read! I didn't want to put it down until it was finished!

When murder plays havoc with your career, sex life, and Jimmy Choos...

Molly Forrester enjoys playing a "Dear Abby" type for Zeitgeist, a Manhattan glossy. She's always hoped opportunity would knock, not throw itself at her feet as is the case when she stumbles literally over a colleague's body in her brand-new pumps. Now a chance to get closer to real news has presented itself as she stares at her spoiled Jimmy Choos planted firmly in a pool of blood...

It's time to call your girlfriends...
Molly recruits trusty chums Cassady and Tricia to help her solve the crime. But she's getting distracted by the adorable homicide detective on the case. Unfortunately, she must first deal with Peter, her pretentious boyfriend. After a second name is brutally struck from the masthead, Molly investigates and stumbles again. This time, it's on dangerous secrets within Zeitgeist's ranks. Now her involvement in this gory chaos might just cost her a whole lot more than a pair of upscale designer footwear...

Molly Forrester is an advice columnist who suddenly finds herself in the middle of a co-worker's murder. It might be the story of the century, or it be too much for Molly and her chums to handle. A fun mystery, with a not too obvious solution.

Good story - a columnist with a yen to be a 'real news' journalist (and a passion for designer footwear) is working for a publication where the staff are dropping faster than prices at a Macys shoe sale. Entertaining read.
