Spying in High Heels - Halliday, Gemma
Spying in High Heels is the first novel in the High Heels Mysteries series. It's free and a very fun read. Since I can't imagine purposely living someplace like L.A. or wearing designer anything, this is a fantasy novel for me, and one I thoroughly enjoyed. Did I mention it's free? Maddie Springer is a kiddie shoe designer living in L.A. When her boyfriend Richard disappears, Maddie resorts to spying on his office, his family, and the police to find him. Especially since she is "late" and Richard could be a father. If she could just get up the courage to pee on that stick she'd know for sure. Then it turns out Richard is wanted for murder and the real murderer may have their sights on Maddie. Throw in Maddie's Mom's wedding, a police detective who gives Maddie hot flashes, and a best friend who never met a man she didn't want to...well anyway. Hilarious situations and a great bunch of characters make this book a pleasure to read. Very highly recommended.
