When her fiance dumps her at the altar, the feisty Isabelle doesn't fall apart. Instead, she dances on the table at her reception. Her actions earn a front-page mention in a major New York newspaper, and in the resulting 15 minutes of fame, decorating maven Becky Belden hires Isabelle to work at her magazine--part of Belden's vast media empire. It seems like a dream job until Isabelle's boss dies under odd circumstances, and Isabelle discovers that many of Becky's employees have died recently. Soon, Isabelle herself is targeted, and in typical hardheaded fashion, she begins a zealous investigation into the deaths. The more clues she discovers, the more likely it seems that her new executive boyfriend might be the murderer, or the one ordering the murders. Bloom adds just enough serious moments to keep the story from becoming too frothy, but Isabelle's quirky personality allows for plenty of fun. As the broke-and-beautiful heroine dashes through Manhattan to avoid being murdered, readers may be tempted to take up the media's cry of "Give 'em hell, Isabelle!" A first-rate flight of fancy.
Great book. Light read. Funny
Breezy fun book with an enjoyable heorine. I can totally relate to her.
I thought this book was a lot of fun. The book and the main character are spunky. While it had a touch of romance, the mystery Isabelle finds at her job is the main storyline. Isabelle was a warm character that I could root for. It had a good pace, suprises along the way and a satisfying ending.
