This is the 3rd in the series, and boy is it a wild ride! Maddie gets hired on the set of Magnolia Lane, a tv drama show, then one of the star doubles, is found strangled with a pair of pany hose. As Maddie is trying to uncover the secrets and scandals, another body turns up dead. After getting death threats via makeup, Maddie is determined to find out the killer, and fast, before shes next!
Not only does Maddie get kidnapped, her apartment gets ransacked, her car rammed into, she also ends up appearing on internet porn (via her shoes); Guns constantly pulled in her face, and cake icing in her face too. She also gets arrested not only for carrying a gun, but a personal "massager" as well!!!
Poor Maddie just cant stay out of trouble!
This is a great book, and I highly reccomend reading all in the set!
It has it all, humor, mystery, action, and not to mention run-ins with LAPD's Sexiest cop! I am proud to say I had the killer pegged!
its a great book! order it now!
Do you really need another review to convince you to read more of this series? This is book 3, and you should read one and two. I dont think you could understand some of the characters unless you did. There are many cozies out there, they tend to be similar. I think this one is unique enough to make you want to read book 3 and then 4.
I think what I liked most is that the romance, ok call it what it was SEX, was written how I like it. I dont need each play by play, each lick, each hand placed whereever. I liked how she summed up the event after some mild teasing, with the words. ALL night long. So she doesnt muck up her mystery with graphic sex. Now if you are a true cozy reader the word multiple orgasm which she uses. would be offensive.
I like that the heroine designs fun shoes. It isnt all about shoes really, but just enough. There is this one character Felix who is scum, he is the tabloid writer who has been a pain in her back side in other books. In this book she describes him as looking like HUGH GRANT, wow I had pictured him old bald and fat. All the past characters get their time in the sun, in a way that makes you love them more, esp Felix, and Maddie's mom.
The setting of a television studio grounds, made this book even more fun. The writer has a great sense of humor about how starlets, and actors and hollywood work.
Great quick read. Definitely a cute cozy. Highly recommended.
This is the first book in this series that I have read. I loved it. I am waiting for a copy of the next book in the series to be posted.
first time I read a book by this author and I really enjoyed it. Very similar to Evanovich in caracters.
Good book for when you want something fun and easy to read.
Really enjoy this series. Humor and suspense.
