Spying in High Heels (High Heels Mysteries#1) by Gemma Halliday

Maddie Springer is a children's shoe designer with a perfect lawyer boyfriend.  That is until he goes missing and people start turning up dead.  With a pregnancy test to take and a sexy cop implying bad things, Maddie is determined to find her boyfriend and clear this mystery up.

Somehow I couldn't bring myself to actually say the word "murder" out loud.  It seemed so John Grisham and so not anyone's real life.  At least not anyone I knew.  e-book
This was adorable.  Though Maddie reminded me of a less spunky Stephanie Plum, I still really enjoyed it.  Maddie was cute, Ramirez (the cop) was super hot and the mystery was fun.  I was almost surprised by who dunnit but, in the end, I guessed right before the reveal but I count that as well done.  Maddie's inability to take a simple pregnancy becomes this full on obsession with finding her missing boyfriend and leads to her solving this case and a really crazy "fight" scene.  It was really funny and, if you like Stephanie Plum or any chick lit type mysteries then I suggest you try this one.

  1. If you want a mystery novel where you're really surprised at the end, I'd recommend Silent in the Grave by Deanna Raybourn. I'm not usually into books like that, but I can't stop reading her novels. They seem like something you'd be interested in.

    I've given you an award on my blog because your reviews are always full of personality and I really like the way your blog is designed. Here's the link: http://gabrielreads.blogspot.com/2011/03/and-award-goes-to.html
