Alibi In High Heels Review


Well this was a pleasant surprise... I started this book this afternoon and read non stop for hours and finished it all in one day!!!! Wendy thanks for giving me my mojo back! LOL Here's my review!



ALIBI IN HIGH HEELS is the fourth book in Gemma Halliday’s series featuring shoe designer Maddie Springer. In this mystery, Maddie receives a call from a top designer inviting her to show her line of shoes in the Paris Fashion Week Show. She is overwhelmed with joy at the possibilities that all of the exposure will do for her career.

Everything is turning out great until one of the models is found murdered with a stiletto heel poking out of her jugular. Maddie is shocked by the familiar murder scene and knows someone is trying to set her up. When all of her shoes for the fashion show are taken away into evidence, Maddie has had enough. She must find out who this killer is before they ruin her life.

Homicide Detective Jack Ramirez loves Maddie and knows how she can get when she is investigating a crime. He wishes she would leave it to the professionals but once she decides to do something there is no stopping her. Ramirez tries to keep Maddie safe but she is determined to solve this case with or without his help. With the help of her family and friends, Maddie tries to solve the case of The Couture Killer before she becomes his next victim.

ALIBI IN HIGH HEELS is a delightful, humorous romance mystery that will have readers smiling and enjoying every page of this fantastic story. I loved the love triangle storyline, the mystery was tightly plotted, the characters were wonderful and I just adored every bit of this book.

I started ALIBI IN HIGH HEELS around 2 pm and read non stop until 11 pm when I finished it. The writing was so engaging and so fun that I did not want to put this book down. This is a 5 star book that I HIGHLY recommend to Janet Evanovich fans who are looking for a new author to try that they will LOVE!!! ALIBI IN HIGH HEELS is the best book that I have read in a while and I can’t wait to read more books by Gemma Halliday.

  3. Wow! That's a long time reading non-stop! I just love books that you just want to never stop reading. That's the way the Harry Potter books were for me. :)

  4. Oh, fun review. I love a mystery, and Evanovich, even though I've only started her series. I'll have to put this on my list. Do you think a person would need to start with book #1 ??

  6. Carolyn: I've never read any of the other books by Gemma Halliday. This was my first one. They do slightly mention past things that happened but this book can be a stand alone. It's REALLLLLY good. I would read them in order if I had the chance so everything is a surprise rather then hearing about it later in this book. I guess I'd say to read them in order.

    Two other authors that I love that are like Evanovich

    1. Nancy Bartholomew (her Strip series is 4 books featuring Sierra Lavotini a stripper who finds herself investigating crimes. Nancy has other series books but she doesnt write in this one anymore.)

    2. Tori Carrington's Sophie Metropolis Series

    This series is up to #4 and it is still an ongoing series. I really like it alot. It's a husband and wife team Tony and Lori who go by the pen name Tori Carrington. It's about a Greek girl named Sophie who works at a detective agency investigating crimes. She tends to get alot of petty cases to solve. There's a love interest and alot of humor.

  7. TC have you ever read Inkheart by Cornelia Funke?

  8. Other good Evanovich equivalents:

    Liz Evans: Cue the Easter Bunny and Sick as a Parrot staring P.I. Grace Smith. Funny, with a love interest, incompetent antics that somehow work out.

    Also Sarah Lacey's "File Under:..." series. These are British and pre-date Evanovich. I sometimes wonder if Evanovich was influenced by Lacey's character.
