An enjoyable romp through the 1950s, when the office girl (it was the 50s, remember?) at Daring Detective Magazine decides to solve a mystery herself and write the story for the magazine. Lots of mostly accurate 50s stuff. I recommend the book.

Interesting, sassy, curious - and maybe dead?? Paige Turner keeps up the action and the plot, and the 50's details are delightful.

Although it is interesting - the writing is a bit "cutesy" and got on my nerves. It was very distracting - but I read the whole thing anyway!

All Paige Turner wants for Christmas is to make it through the season alive. New York City in 1954 can be bad for a girl's health--especially if she's a staff writer for a pulp mystery magazine who cant help getting a little too involved in her work. Not that she's looking for trouble this time--Detective Dan Street, her new love, has forbidden her from ever making like Sam Spade again. But what's a girl to do when her late husband's army buddy turns up with a tale like something out of "Daring Detective" magazine? His sister murdered. A stash of diamonds to die for hidden in a box of oatmeal. The mystery is a Christmas present Paige can't resist opening. But with the killer hot on her trail, Paige faces the chilling possibility that this Christmas might be her last.....

"Paige Turner is the liveliest, most charming detective to emerge in crime fiction in a long time...
She is irresistible, a force of nature."
