  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Barb | 9/25/2013

    " Too much description and label name dropping. Who cares if the toe-nail polish was Chanelle? "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Beckie | 9/25/2013

    " I chose this book for its "brain-candy" potential--and it did not disappoint in that regard. It was a good story, but the brand-name dropping was quite tedious--as were the abundant, detailed clothing descriptions. Less is more. It would make a good Lifetime TV movie :). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 7/31/2013

    " This is a good light read murder mystery- keeps you guessing a bit. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Irene | 6/30/2013

    " Read this while on an island vacation...a fun, easy, and fast mystery. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kim | 4/14/2013

    " This was an easy fun read but nothing to write home about. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kirsten | 12/21/2012

    " I enjoyed reading this book. It was a fun easy read, and I enjoyed getting to know the characters. It wasn't a highly original plot, but it was well written and entertaining. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lee Ann | 12/20/2012

    " Not bad--the references to all the designer stuff got boring after a while but it was a fun, light read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sue Rock | 9/11/2012

    " I enjoy a good murder mystery ... Too soon to tell if this one is actually good. Maybe it's good psychological thrillers I enjoy. :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christina Potter Bieloh | 5/20/2012

    " This was a very light entertaining mystery. She is a good storyteller. "

    " This book was ok. It went on and on in the beginning and then it tells you the story. Then the ending. There was no telling you what happened to the person who did it and then it was over. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 P Bright | 11/25/2011

    " Never read anything by this author, so will see how it goes. Just on page 5.

    Well, I finished. It was okay for a very, very, light read. I don't know that I would read another by this author. It did not "grab" me and really hold my attention. "
