Book Description

May 1 2004
Molly Forrester had always hoped opportunity would knock, not throw itself at her feet. She enjoys playing a "Dear Abby" type for Zeitgeist magazine, a Manhattan glossy "wedged on the newsstand somewhere between Marie Claire and Cosmo." But when she literally stumbles onto a crime-tripping over a colleague's body and ruining her new pair of Jimmy Choos-she sees the potential to sink her teeth-or heels-into some real news for a change.

After all, writing a column dealing with people's secrets should be good preparation for solving a murder. Especially since the victim was a notorious lady's man. Still, even an expert could use some help. So Molly enlists Cassady and Tricia, the best friends she always turns to for support, shoes, and the proper cocktail.

She might even take a cue from that cute homicide detective... Or is he cozying up because he thinks Molly's a killer?

Sheryl J. Anderson delivers a wickedly funny, sexy, and suspenseful novel about one girl tackling a killer in the Big Apple. Compared to negotiating Manhattan's singles scene, solving one eensy teensy stabbing shouldn't be that big a deal.... Right?

Product Details


Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Mix a splash of Carrie Bradshaw, a dash of Stephanie Plum and a wee bit of Kinsey Millhone and you have Molly Forrester, advice columnist ("You Can Tell Me") for Zeitgeist magazine by day and amateur sleuth by night. At the start of Anderson's debut comic crime novel, Forrester literally steps in it-gooey blood, that is-when she returns to the office late one night and stumbles over a dead coworker. Molly's spanking new Jimmy Choos are covered in blood and she's soon knee-deep in sex, lies and crime-scene tape. Thrown into the fray are a hottie cop named Kyle Edwards; Molly's two gal pals, lawyer Cassady Lynch and event planner Tricia Vincent; and soon-to-be ex-boyfriend Peter Mulcahey, who happens to be a reporter for a rival magazine. Can Molly solve the murder and segue into a serious writing career? Or is using the death of a coworker as a major career move utterly uncouth? ("I always knew I'd make my mark on the world. I just didn't expect it to be one of those chalk outlines they draw around dead bodies.") While Molly explores her options, there's a second murder, and financial irregularities pop up in Zeitgeist's accounting department. Ample laughs help propel a well-crafted plot.

From Booklist

A pseudonymous husband-and-wife writing team debuts a series sure to please Sex and the City fans. In fact, similarities between Sex heroine Carrie Bradshaw and Anderson's Molly Forrester abound: both are Manhattan columnists who lust after expensive shoes and often pick the wrong man. Like Carrie, Molly has beautiful and wealthy New York sidekicks, Cassady and Tricia, both of whom have plenty of time and money. Molly's rather unexciting job at Zeitgeist magazine heats up when she and Cassady visit the office at night and stumble over the dead body of advertising director Teddy Reynolds. If she can find the killer, Molly will have a story she can peddle to bigger magazines--and thus move up a notch on the career ladder. With Teddy's many mistresses and enemies, however, that will be no easy task. Not helping is Molly's attraction to handsome homicide detective Kyle Edwards. Swanky New York locales and designer accessories abound in this fun if slightly implausible tale. For readers who care more about Prada than police procedure. Jenny McLarin

5.0 out of 5 stars Totally Sex and The City!! July 2 2004
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
The characters in this book reminded me so much of SATC!! So if you're a big fan of SATC like I am, and eager for a similar cast of characters, this is a really fun book to read. Add a murder mystery, and you get this amazingly entertaining, impossible-to-put-down book.
The beginning of this book had me a little doubtful, but after the first 40 or so pages, I was hooked--I finished reading the book in one night. I must admit, the writing style isn't too great and rather undeveloped, but that doesn't stop this book from being very fun and entertaining--after all, you're not buying this book for literary value, it's more a "just for fun" kinda book.
It reminded me of Kate White's Bailey Weggins mysteries with the same amount of romance mixed into the mystery.
Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Kept me turning the pages! June 25 2004
Format:Hardcover
For her debut novel, Ms. Anderson comes out and delivers a hit! It was a fun and suspenseful read with a good pace and a unique cast of characters. I'm a fan of Sex in the City and found the subtle similarities a hoot, but certainly not a rip-off! I anxiously await the next adventure for Molly Forrester and her friends!!

5.0 out of 5 stars upbeat, funny and refreshing journalist tale April 29 2004
By Harriet Klausner TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
After having dinner with one of her best friends, Molly Forrester agrees to go to her workplace, Zeitgeist magazine to show Cassady the ugliest piece of art in existence, one that The Publisher (that is always how he is referred to) has left in a prominent place. When they arrive at the office Molly steps in something wet and when Cassady turns on the lights, they find the murdered body of the advertising director Teddy Reynolds, a knife in his throat. Molly's first instinct is to call their best friend Tricia but Cassidy the lawyer calls 911.
Molly a columnist in the tradition of Dear Abby and Ann Landers sees this murder as a story that will get her a job as a serious news reporter if she investigates the case and finds the killer. Teddy had as many friends as he did enemies including a wife he cheated on and a mistress he also cheated on who happens to be Molly's boss. By the time she and her two friends finish their investigation; Molly is shot at and has become romantically involved with the lead detective on the case.
The first installment in what looks to be a winning series is upbeat, funny and totally, refreshingly original. The investigation is fascinating as Molly first follows the romance trail and in mid-stream shifts to the money motive because she comes upon a clue that the victim was doing something illegal with one of the accounts. The heroine is an original and her deep solid friendships with Cassady and Trisha ring true and feel real. Sheryl Anderson provides a fabulous opening act.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Most Talented New Mystery Writers to Hit the Scene... Dec 22 2005
By Erika Sorocco - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Molly Forrester loves her job as the resident "Dear Abby" columnist at Manhattan's glossy Zeitgeist Magazine, and while she's not working on "hard" news stories, she has a lot of perks - like being able to go to work in her pajamas when she feels the need. Though she's always held the hope that opportunity for a more serious journalism career would knock, she never thought that it would throw itself under her feet, more or less, ruining her electric blue Jimmy Choos, and placing her smack dab in the middle of a murder investigation surrounding her Zeitgeist colleague, Teddy. Now Molly, with the help of her two best friends - lawyer Cassady, and party planner Tricia - and an uber hot homicide detective, Molly finds herself trying to solve the crime herself, in an attempt to land the biggest story of her career. That is, if her investigation doesn't land her six-feet below ground.

The moment I saw the cover of Sheryl J. Anderson's KILLER HEELS, I had SEX AND THE CITY flashbacks, and knew that I had to have it. Sheryl J. Anderson is possibly one of the most talented new mystery writers to hit the scene in the past couple of years. Her descriptions of connections in New York City, and how murderous the writing/magazine industry truly is, are right on mark; and her character development, and snappy dialogue keep the reader enthralled from first page to last. A fabulous first novel that will make you feel underdressed - it may be wise to slip on a pair of six-inch heels while reading.

I am *NOT* a Sex and the City fan so I was ready not to like this book. I enjoyed it so much I ended up reading it in one setting. It is fun and sassy with great characters.
