Product Description

A Cupcakes-And-Crime Caper


"I tell myself every day that I don't hate my job... But there's a reason I'm trying to leave the madness of the casino pit to become a Private Investigator."


"Winters will have you giggling into your book!"


Cupcake-loving croupier Tiffany Black is determined to leave her job at the casino for good. She's one small step away from acquiring her Private Investigator license, and has her eye on the prize.

Accepting her first real case - investigating the murder of casino-mogul Ethan Becker - should be exciting. Instead, things spiral out of control and Tiffany finds herself in over her head, as she confronts secretive suspects, corrupt casino henchmen and a bodyguard with a mysterious past.


Tiffany's poker-hustling Nanna and pushy parents want her to find a nice man and settle down, but Tiffany just wants to track down the real murderer before he finds her first...


Praise for A.R. Winters:


"Fans of Stephanie Plum, meet Tiffany Black, A.R. Winters's new heroine." - Rea, Amazon.com


"You fall in love with Tiffany Black from the start, and the mystery starts immediately" - Melissa Greenberg, Amazon.com Top 1000 Reviewer


"The perfect balance of being lighthearted, but still a serious page-turning mystery." - Jaycie D, Amazon.com

While obviously inspired by Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum, this book was not just another failed take-off of a successful author. Tiffany is saner than Stephanie. Her pushy mother is pushy in a different way; her vivacious grandmother is eccentric but not wildly so; the appealing ex-CIA man who helps her out is somehow less sexy and more loveable. One might say that Winters used the Plum books as a template, but used her own colours for filling it in. I should also mention that the humor is more subtle; if you come to this expecting the wild, laugh-out-loud craziness of the Plum novels, you will be disappointed. If you come without expectations, you will probably enjoy it. As a private investigator who's still in training, Tiffany makes some blunders, but she does figure out the mystery, and manages to share something of life in Las Vegas in the process.

This book earned its fourth star for using good English, well-constructed sentences, good spelling, and good word choice. It was obviously proofread - I think there were a couple of minor typos that got by them, but that's all. I find it adds greatly to my enjoyment of a book if I don't have to rewrite every other sentence, as often happens with Amazon freebies (which this one was). There was very little bad language, no pornographic sex scenes, and no more violence than is essential to a murder mystery.

I think the author was ill-advised in making the book's debt to Evanovich so obvious, as that tends to set up certain expectations. And let's face it, there's only one Janet Evanovich. However, once those expectations are dropped, the book turns out to be quite enjoyable.

OMG....does Janet Evanovich know about this.....plagiarism runs rampant through this book. We have an inept bounty hunter vs an inept private eye...that and the names were about the only things different. Otherwise we have the meddling but concerned parents, spunky grandma, the boyfriend cop and the mysterious, protective security guy. I'm disappointed in the author's writing technique... very amateurish....not at all suspenseful. There's a lame attempt at making the lead character funny and witty but falls short. I bought the book based on the reviews but I'm stumped. I even purchased the second in this series....I'm curious to see if it gets better, but I have my doubts. Thank goodness it only cost a buck.

Innocent in Las Vegas is a contemporary chick lit mystery that got straight to the point of the story early on. The author didn’t waste any time introducing our heroine Tiffany and the details of the murder she is to solve.

As a fan of Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum series, I was able to pick up on several similarities between her character and Winter’s character. Their writing style also shares the same sarcastic humour, which is something that I enjoy. However as I read along I couldn’t help but make note of these similarities and at times it became a bit irritating for me; the single woman living alone, meddling mother nearby, spunky grandmother just to name a few. Thankfully there were some notable differences that made the reading experience more enjoyable for me. For example: the fact that Tiffany was in training to be a P.I. a career that she was determined to be successful in, the Las Vegas setting and her eagerness to learn and grow despite her fears. All these traits made for an admirable main character.

The mystery itself with the casinos, strippers and money is what I would expect from one set in Las Vegas. It kept my interest throughout and was a quick read. Although I did find it hard to keep the suspects straight because there was so many of them. It was difficult to remember who was who and how they related to the murder victim.

Although I find Winter’s writing style to be enjoyable I am undecided if I will continue with this series. I would recommend it to other fans of this genre. However I think that it would be more enjoyed by someone who has not yet read the Stephanie Plum series.

New P.I. Tiffany Black hadn’t expected that her first assignment would come from an old high school friend, but Sophia Becker needs her help. Sophia’s about to be charged for the murder of her older and very wealthy husband. The gun was found in her home, she has no alibi, and as a former stripper, her credibility is questionable. Tiffany isn’t sure about the women’s innocence either, but when her investigation places Tiffany in danger, she begins to think that Sophia might be right.

I always enjoy reading the first book in a series, and this novel really does start at the beginning. Set in Las Vegas, twenty-eight-year-old Tiffany is blackjack dealer at night, who desperately wants a career change. The book introduces her cop friend, Emily, her somewhat conservative mother, easygoing dad, and a wild, poker-playing grandma. The characters are fun but not particularly unique, especially if you’re a Janet Evanovich fan. The Las Vegas setting could have been developed more as not much is said about it.

On the upside, Tiffany is a likeable character and I forgave the dumb rookie mistakes because she’s still learning the business. Although this was a fairly good start, the series will be even better if characters and settings are fleshed out in future installments.
