Book 1: Spying in High Heels by Gemma Halliday
Killer in High Heels description:
L.A. shoe designer Maddie Springer hasn’t seen her father since he reportedly ran off to Las Vegas with a showgirl named Lola. So she’s shocked when he leaves a desperate plea for help on her answering machine – ending in a loud bang. Gunshot? Car backfire? Never one to leave her curiosity unsatisfied, Maddie straps on her stilettos and, along with her trigger-happy best friend, makes tracks for Sin City in search of her MIA dad.
Maddie hits the jackpot, all right. She finds not only her dad, but also a handful of aging drag queens, an organized crime ring smuggling fake Prada pumps, and one relentless killer. Plus, it seems the LAPD’s sexiest cop is doing a little Vegas moonlighting of his own. In a town where odds are everything, Maddie bets it all on her ability to out-step a vicious murderer. She just hopes her gamble pays off… before her own luck runs out.
This series is just too fun to ignore… it will definitely keep you laughing out loud as you follow Maddie being the same shoe crazy amateur sleuth that you loved in the first book… it’s about 6 weeks after the first book and Ramirez isn’t answering her phone calls… Dana is trying to make her work off her missing Ramirez ice cream binge she’d been on… and then she gets a phone call from her long gone dad saying he needs her help… to make matters worse she might just have a stalker that followed her from LA to Las Vegas where she plans to hunt down the dad she hasn’t seen since she was 3 and of course disobey every request Ramirez makes of her… like stay away from Vegas, be good, don’t make the big bad mobster mad… it’s hilarious and action packed along with so many teaser scenes with her almost finally hooking up with Ramirez that it’ll drive you crazy… a great follow up book and I’m already looking forward to number 3…
