Author : Geema Halliday
Publisher: Brilliance Audio
Genre : Adult Fiction, Chick lit, Homor, Mystery

This is the second book in the High Heels series starring Maddie Springer. This one is even funnier than the first one. Lots of quirky antics,some things that I wasn’t expecting and some things I had figured out, but altogether entertaining. I was laughing out loud through the whole book and literally couldn’t put it down.

L.A. shoe designer Maddie Springer was back. The story took place in Vegas with her family and friends. She hadn’t seen her father since he reportedly ran off to Las Vegas with a showgirl named Lola. So she was shocked when she got a frantic message from her dad on her answering machine -ending in a loud bang- not Faux Dad but Real Dad. Seeing how she hadn’t spoken to him in twenty something years, it came as a bit of a surprise.

Maddie once again proved herself to be analytical. She made tracks for Sin City in search of her MIA dad along with her best friend Dana, and Marco, who worked at her Mom and Faux Dad’s hair salon, all take off for Vegas.Maddie was valianty and inquisitive and eventually solved the enigma.She was sympathetic and concerned towards her dad. And that was the reason she decided to help and support him without giving a second thought to it in spite of the fact that her mother and father were living apart. She was indeed a kindhearted and a obliging girl. However, she was a normal person, like you and I but her instinctive powers made her a bit different from others. That made this series very gripping.That’s why I liked her the most in the entire plot.

Her counterpart,Ramirez was a chivalrous man. He safeguarded Maddie from every danger that crossed her way. He was always affectionate and gracious towards her. Even though Maddie always refused to obey him and eventually gets in trouble but Ramirez stood always by her side and took the responsibility of her security.

My Review
At all times through Maddie’s journey, her best friend Dana was with her. She was being a constant support no matter what circumstances were. Dana was humorous, audacious and came up with peculiar ideas.

The actors in the play were same as in the first book. From fearless maddie,dana,maddie’s anxious mom, persistent Mrs. Rosenblatt to the sexy LAPD officer Ramirez. Some were introduced for the first time. Such as the ostentatious Marco. They all were comical which made the story exciting.

Killer in High Heels was able to hold my attention.The end was quite unpredictable and you’ll be open-mouthed after identifying the real killer.For those who love romantic suspense I’m not sure this book will do it for you. It really doesn’t have much romance and the suspense is done all in fun. However if you want a light read you may really enjoy Gemma Halliday’s style of writing and her brand of humor.

There’s a plethora of adventure,exploits along with plenty of laughs. And watch out, there were a few surprises along the way as well. Overall the script was chucklesome and hilarious.

If you are looking for a book that is light, fun, but with some intrigue this maybe the book for you.
I’d recommend it to any person who wants to read a chick-lit, cozy mystery.

Rating : 3.8/5

Happy Reading!! :D
