Spying in High Heels - Gemma Halliday

Read for Booklikesopoly




A very light and fluffy cozy mystery. Maddie Springer enjoys fashion, beauty rituals, and flashy men. That last part gets her into trouble - her boyfriend is skimming profits off his client who is embezzling money. When client and boyfriend go under, Maddie is one the case. Det. Jackson Ramirez (aka, my new book boyfriend - damn he is hot!) is also on the case. Maddie and her friend Dana can be ditzy at times, but they dig deeper and pull on threads that lead to the true criminal. Dana is too sex-crazed to be of real use to anyone; Maddie can't keep her stories straight or be on time for anything. She was fun to read about, but would be an exhausting person to have as a friend. The mystery was well done and the clues were dropped pretty regularly that fit at the end. I'm going to keep reading this series, but I don't know if I can recommend it because it is too fluffy.
