A fun romp and escape from reality
Reviewed in the United States on February 21, 2015
Picked this book up when it was available for free, and wow, it’s one of the best I’ve grabbed from the Top 100 Free Kindle books. A romance? Well there is definitely attraction and it does end as a romance, but that’s not really the focus of the story. I guess you’d say it was more of comedic mystery.
Jolie believes she’s got to be at the lowest point in her life. Someone had stolen her car, she’s reported that her boyfriend is missing and had quit her job at a real estate agency after she’d been asked to play a part in a shady deal. She’s now working part time selling shoes at Nieman Marcus until she can get enough money together to get her own real estate agency off the ground. But things manage to get even worse, and yet funnier. A co-worker talks her into joining her at an exclusive party and doesn’t find out until she’s there, that they crashed the party.
The antics are both somewhat outrageous as well as humorous as Jolie looks for answers about her boyfriend and becomes a suspect in a murder. I loved most of the characters and how they respond to situations. And the mystery is nicely twisted. Many mysteries have clues or situations that are red herrings. In this one each has importance and there is more than one mystery taking place.
A fun romp if you want an escape from reality.
