This is #8 in the series. Its a fun read about a plus-size private investigator. She is a hoot and I could really relate to her.

At there is a private eye that we can embrace,she doesn't jog, she doesn't know karate, and passing a bakery doesn't bother her.
This one is for the mullions of that are tired of glamorous private eyes.
A fun book to read.

Sometimes I like this series and sometimes I don't. I thought this one had a rather abrupt ending.

Desiree's thought processes and sense of humor remind me of myself. I could actually 'see' myself thinking and saying things she did! A very realistic character.

This is book #8 in the Desiree Shapiro series. Desiree is a young widowed woman who has taken over her late husband's detective business in Manhattan. In addition to her wry and witty observations about her case (and life itself), Desiree's absolute acceptance of herself as a voluptuous (plus-sized) woman who is never too hot-on-a-case to stop for a snack is refreshing. I know that I do get just a wee-bit tired of the "toned-to-the-max", uber-competent, flawless females after a while.

Lots of fun, filled with what I (a non-New Yorker) think of a New York attitude and wit.
