Product Description

New York Times, USA Today, and #1 Kindle Bestseller!

Boxed set of five award winning High Heels Mystery novels featuring fashion designer turned amateur sleuth, Maddie Springer, including:

SPYING IN HIGH HEELS - book #1
L.A. shoe designer, Maddie Springer, lives her life by three rules: Fashion. Fashion. Fashion. But when she stumbles upon the work of a brutal killer, her life takes an unexpected turn from Manolos to murder.

KILLER IN HIGH HEELS - book #2
Maddie straps on her stilettos and, along with her trigger-happy best friend, makes tracks for Sin City in search of her MIA dad.
Maddie finds not only her dad, but also a handful of aging drag queens, an organized crime ring smuggling fake Prada pumps, and one relentless killer. Plus, it seems the LAPD's sexiest cop is doing a little Vegas moonlighting of his own. In a town where odds are everything, Maddie bets it all on her ability to out-step a vicious murderer.

UNDERCOVER IN HIGH HEELS - book #3
Secret affairs, hunky gardeners, and housewives desperate enough to bare it all... welcome to Magnolia Lane, TV's hottest new prime time show... where a rising young starlet is found dead on the show's set. Now it's up to Maddie to sift through a leading lady with a secret, an actor on the verge of a nervous breakdown, a sexy cyber scandal, and one tabloid reporter who'll stop at nothing to get the story of the century. Not to mention Maddie's hot-cold relationship with the case's familiar lead detective, Jack Ramirez. In a world where secrets, lies, and deception can earn you an Oscar, Maddie plays the role of a lifetime to catch Hollywood's hottest killer. But if she doesn't watch her step, Maddie's fifteen minutes of fame just may be her last.

ALIBI IN HIGH HEELS - book #4
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.

MAYHEM IN HIGH HEELS - book #5
Maddie Springer is finally walking down the aisle with the man of her dreams. And she's got the perfect wedding planner to pull it all off in style. Well, perfect, that is, until the woman winds up dead - murdered in buttercream icing. With the help of her fellow fashionista friends, Maddie vows to unveil the cold-blooded killer, but as the wedding day grows closer, tempers flare, old flames return, and Maddie's race to the altar turns into a race against time.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cute Story Nov. 29 2010
By Tallwoman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The stories are cute, and lighthearted. Most pages have typos of some sort. This can get irritating. Don't know if it's an Amazon thing, or the publisher, but it makes reading difficult.

1.0 out of 5 stars Major Disappointment April 13 2011
By Jennifer C. Addington - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I thought these would be fun, but between the bad grammar, the typos, and the totally ditsy "heroine" I was really put off. She lies, cheats, doesn't have an ounce of sense in her head. I kept thinking that they'd get better, but unfortunately, at least for me, they were a total waste of time and money.

3.0 out of 5 stars Brainless fun with formulaic plots and usually a happy ending. Sept. 21 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
The books are silly, brainless time-wasters which are arguably fun and/or cute to read.

I've probably lost a few brain cells. I certainly didn't learn anything valuable. I disliked most of what Maddie does, but I can't help but call this a guilty pleasure in that these novels were predictable, simple, had a fantasy guy, were light reads, and always had happy endings.

The heroine is annoying more often than not, because she's constantly doing what we the audience know she shouldn't do. On the other hand, the rare appearances by Detective Ramirez for some reason fulfills the unrealistic and cliched fantasy of "hunky, yet sensitive" knight in shining armor. He--even in his unoriginal dialogue and descriptions--was probably the only character that we want to like despite all the novels' many character flaws.

Each book follows the same basic formula, and can be read in a couple of hours as there isn't much to think about.

[SPOILERS BELOW]

Here is the basic formula for each of the five novels:

1. Maddie, petite shoe designer, gets dressed to the nines in whatever brand is hot the year the book is published.

2. Maddie is late for wherever she's supposed to be.

3. Someone gets killed.

4. Maddie finds the body and/or becomes the prime suspect.

5. Hunky yet caring LAPD Detective Ramirez enters the scene. He is always described with a day-old stubby jaw and hard body, with a dark look that makes Maddie swoon.

6. Maddie ignores good sense and does her own investigations into the murder, and always gets in trouble.

7. Hunky cop rescues or bails her out, scolds her, and then kisses her up against the wall.

8. Maddie then avoids hunky cop and continues investigation.

9. Mental forehead smack (about 10-20 times per book in the later novels.)

10. Maddie figures whodunnit, and then gets knocked out by the villain(s.)

11. Maddie defends herself or is saved by random friends or hunky cop.

12. Villains are caught, then Maddie and hunky cop reconcile.
