New York Times, USA Today, and #1 Kindle Bestselling series!

"Gemma Halliday's Maddie Springer is like the west coast version of Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum—only more stylish!"
- LG Book Club

Baguettes, bodies, and haute couture galore! Shoe designer turned amateur sleuth, Maddie Springer, is at it again, this time in fabulously fashionable Paris. When Europe's designer de jour, Jean Luc LeCroix, invites Maddie to show her creations at Paris Fashion Week, Maddie's sure she's died and gone to heaven. That is until Jean Luc's top model is found dead on the runway, stabbed with a familiar stiletto heel. Sure someone is trying to frame her, Maddie enlists the help of her friends, including the sexy Detective Jack Ramirez, to uncover a daring jewel heist, a devious blackmailer, and even a few skeletons lurking in the closets of those closest to her. But as the evidence mounts, Maddie becomes the prime suspect and Ramirez is stuck between a badge and a cute blonde with a tendency for trouble. Will he stand by her as she attempts to track down an international killer, or will this be the case that finally comes between them? One thing's for sure, if Maddie doesn't uncover the real killer soon, she may be saying her final adieu.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as the others March 28 2008
By S. Cochran - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I have read and enjoyed the previous books in this series, but this one was a complete letdown. The plot was just not the least bit plausible. Of all the people in LA who could have accidentally hit Maddie, it was her mother's psychic friend? Why couldn't it have been a random stranger? It did nothing for the plot for it to have been Mrs. R. And I agree with the reviewer who said the whole booted foot did nothing for the plot at all. And I just think it was ridiculous to have the whole gang of whacky characters go to Paris. Why Paris? Just so the Eiffel Tower could get worked into the story? And why force this love triangle with Ramirez and Felix? And it does seem forced and makes Maddie look terribly shallow emotionally. Is Ms. Halliday trying to make Maddie be like Stephanie Plum with her Morelli/Ranger triangle (which by the way is getting old)?
And when Maddie ditched Ramirez in her hotel room after he flew to Paris for her, I almost threw the book across the room. I put it down and didn't pick it up for a week. I didn't enjoy this one like I did the others. The others I read in a day, and I had to make myself finish this one.

2.0 out of 5 stars Maddie Gets the Boot March 16 2008
By wordwitch - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
O.K. I read two of Gemma Halliday's previous books. Frankly, I am not as impressed with Maddie as the rest of you seem to be. I do like comedy, and I do love a well-written, at least nominally well-researched book. Unfortunately, although this book is kind of funny, Maddie is more irritating and unbelievable than anything else. Gemma Halliday makes Ramirez more a lustful "father" figure to Maddie than a committed, in love and loving contemporary. He spends his time giving Maddie more "spankings" figurately speaking, than communicating with her outside of bed. She is the recalcitrant child to his finger shaking, teeth grinding parent, and this is not attractive to me in any couple.

The plot of this story should have resulted in a much better book, in my opinion, but we are working with an author who is mimicing the Desilu phenom, only this is a dizzy blonde instead of a dizzy redhead.Perhaps these books will translate better on television, where (I hope) better writers will make a better and more believable story.

For instance, Maddie was hit by Mrs.Rosenblatt. Why? How does this accident do anything for the book? Maddie could have taken her mother and Mrs. R with her to Paris without the accident and the resulting boot. How did the boot impact the story? It didn't really. She did everything she wanted to do, got not sympathy from Ramirez, in fact, there was never a scene where Ramirez was even informed of Maddie's accident, nor did he show up at the hospital like any other boyfriend would have. All of the good juicy emotional points where Gemma Halliday could convince me that Ramirez is actually in love, not just in lust, with Maddie are overlooked. Maybe this author doesn't know what true romance or true love really is, or at least what it should look and feel like. Maddie and Ramirez are on the same planet, sometimes in the same bed, but speak two different languages, and there is no Maddie to Ramirez dictionary for translation.

Not only that, but the scene (spoiler, but I don't care) leading up to the part where Maddie is caught kissing Felix by Ramirez was so pitifully unrealistic it got on my nerves. Maddie appears to be more a robot who is given emotions and told to act on the author's whim, rather than a person who feels any depth of emotion for anyone other than her mother. (And even that was suspect in this book when Maddie's mother and Mrs. Rosenblatt went missing for two days and Maddie just pretty much flipped them both off.) Back to Felix. So he is a good kisser. Okay. So what? She called Felix pond scum through every other book, but he's a good kisser, so now, Ramirez is what, pond scum? Any woman this light in the attic, and so emotionally stupid, couldn't find a stiletto in a heel factory.

Now, for the ending. I won't spoil this one, but, get real! After all that Maddie put Ramirez through, Ms. Halliday, Ramirez would have to be jacked up on drugs to do what he did. This is a pretty good example of an author manufacturing a plot point to fit the book, rather than the character. Get a new editor, please.

I like the idea of what Maddie could be, more than the reality of who she becomes under this author's pen. Sorry, Ms. Halliday.

By icequeen - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
I fell in love with the first book and continued on all the rest! This series was great and full of coincidences. I felt like poor Maddie was always sticking her stilettos into something or someplace where it shouldn't be. I had to keep turning the page to find out what Jack would do to her.

I'm so glad that this series was written. All the books in this story were great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good old fashioned High Heeled fun!! April 14 2013
By Danielle - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Maddie Springer is at it again, this time in Paris - the most romantic city in the world and the fashion capital! Add a broken leg, dead models stabbed in the jugular with one of HER designed high heels, her quirky jealous bestie Dana, a weird romatic vibe from Tabloid Boy Felix and her hottie boyfriend LAPD Detective Jack Ramirez and Maddie's trip to the fashion capital of the world isn't all it cracked up to be - and all she wants is to get a glimpse of the Eiffle Tower!

When a fiesty model turns up dead on the runway with one of Maddie's own design heels protruding from her neck all eyes are on her. With the paparazzi dubbing her 'The Couture Killer' Maddie must get to the truth before the show so her shoes can be seen by all of the worlds most important fashionistas. Throw in a complicated relationship with a Tabloid reported who won't take no for an answer, the police not believing her and everyone watching her for all the wrong reasons and Maddie is at her witts end. Can she catch the real murderer in time or will she be forever known as 'The Corture Killer'??

Just another fabulous additon to Gemma Halliday's Maddie Springer High Heels Mysteries. And I for one am a dedicated and loyal Maddie fan!!!
