Now we're getting somewhere! I have been reading the High Heels Mysteries by Gemma Halliday and just finished book four in the series, Alibi in High Heels. So far the books have been entertaining and fun, even though Maddie can be a bit annoying at times. But in this latest book, I am really starting to get into the saga.
"Baguettes, bodies, and haute couture galore! Shoe designer turned amateur sleuth, Maddie Springer, is at it again, this time in fabulously fashionable Paris. When Europe's designer de jour, Jean Luc LeCroix, invites Maddie to show her creations at Paris Fashion Week, Maddie's sure she's died and gone to heaven. That is until Jean Luc's top model is found dead on the runway, stabbed with a familiar stiletto heel. Sure someone is trying to frame her, Maddie enlists the help of her friends, including the sexy Detective Jack Ramirez, to uncover a daring jewel heist, a devious blackmailer, and even a few skeletons lurking in the closets of those closest to her. But as the evidence mounts, Maddie becomes the prime suspect and Ramirez is stuck between a badge and a cute blonde with a tendency for trouble. Will he stand by her as she attempts to track down an international killer, or will this be the case that finally comes between them? One thing's for sure, if Maddie doesn't uncover the real killer soon, she may be saying her final adieu."
I hate spoilers, so I won't give anything away... but I have to say that Maddie's choice is not the one I would have made... hooking me into the next book, Mayhem in High Heels, to see if she changes her mind! If you're interested in the series, buy the boxed set... at $9.99 for five books, it's a steal! Good and getting better with each installment, I definitely recommend Gemma Halliday's High Heels Mysteries if you are a fan of Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum.
