It took me a while to get into it, but the characters are kind of sassy and fun once you are interested in them. Mystery involving a cheating husband. Also enjoyed the San Francisco setting since I am from the Bay Area originally.

THIS IS THE CORRECT PLOT OF THE STORY

From Publishers Weekly
Following hard on the red spike heels of 2005's Sex, Murder and a Double Latte, Davis's second whodunit delivers on the promise of the first. Mystery novelist Sophie Katz has a knack for collecting real-life murders. The latest victim is her detestable brother-in-law, Bob Miller, with her sister, Leah, the prime suspect. Bob's sister further muddies the waters with accusations that Leah, the perfect Republican society wife, is playing up her black and Jewish heritage for sympathy in the press. Meanwhile, Sophie and Anatoly, her favorite love-to-hate PI, are investigating Bob's three mistresses and extravagant spending habits as well as their own budding relationship. A cast of charming caricaturesthe Jewish mom, the gay hairdresser, the destructive toddlerround out a version of San Francisco in which racial politics are fun to play with and sex is steamier than frothed milk. Davis chooses style over substance, skillfully keeping the snappy dialogue funny all the way to the unsurprising surprise ending, and lands square on target for her chick lit audience. (May)

Didn't like this one as much as the first one. I will be reading the next two in the series soon and hope they are much better.

I really wanted to like this series. I read the first and thought it worth giving book two a try. I wish I hadn't. The premise behind this series is sound, but I just couldn't take the inane plot, the completely stupid and irrational actions of the main characters and the large number of editing errors in this book (anybody going to start ringing your hands? Or maybe you can add your own personal flare to your apartment?). Also, the way Sophie uses her fear of becoming her nephew's guardian as her main driving force behind wanting to help her sister really rubbed me the wrong way. I won't be reading any more of this series. It's just not for me.
