Spying in High Heels (A High Heels Mystery #1) by Gemma Halliday

L.A. shoe designer, Maddie Springer, lives her life by three rules: Fashion. Fashion. Fashion. But when she stumbles upon the work of a brutal killer, her life takes an unexpected turn from Manolos to murder. And things only get worse when her boyfriend disappears – along with AUD20 million in embezzled funds – and her every move is suddenly under scrutiny by the LAPD’s sexiest cop. With the help of her post-menopausal bridezilla of a mother, a 300 pound psychic and one seriously oversexed best friend, Maddie finds herself stepping out of her stilettos and onto the trail of a murderer. But can she catch a killer before the killer catches up to her…

One of the best things about the free Kindle downloads is that some of them do take you out of your normal comfort zone so there is always a chance that you will find a new author or genre that will then tempt you to purchase more of the same. This book did not do it for me at all. It was rather like listening to one of those teenage girls that just blather on and on about nothing with a few kernels of bits that do matter- with some meaningless and inane bits of TMI. Sadly, I don’t have any patience with these personality types (I am working on it!) and I did not have any patience with this book at all and I am glad that none of my hard earned cash went to actually purchase this masterpiece. The heroine is awful, the plot really thin and I am just so far out of the target market that it seems a bit unfair to rate it as “I did not like it” – but for me – no, no,no, and not many redeeming qualities. If you saw my Musing Monday you know I could not even finish it.
