Sophie Katz has just offered a man $12,000 for his services. Is she desperate or just meshugeneh?

Considering the kind of disasters that usually befall the half-black, half-Jewish mystery writer, probably both. Because the last time Sophie saw sexy P.I. Anatoly Darinsky, he practically danced a jig when she waved goodbye; a normal reaction for a man who'd nearly bought the farm trying to protect her from her own foolishness. What are the chances he'd agree to take incriminating pictures of her sister's philandering husband? Or that he'd let her tag along, you know, for research?

But when her brother-in-law turns up dead and her sister becomes the prime suspect, Sophie's priority is finding the real killer. With or without Anatoly's help. Her brother-in-law's secret life yields plenty of suspects, but the San Francisco police aren't taking any of them seriously. So Sophie does what comes naturally to her: she stirs up trouble (to lure the killer out, of course).

But if her crazy plan works, will Anatoly be there to protect her this time?

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathryn Moore | 1/31/2014

    " Very good from cover to cover. I actually laughed out loud a few times. This was the second book in this series and I will definately read #3. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cathy | 1/22/2014

    " Again...love this series. This is book #2 and just as funny as #1. Her writing is very similar to Janet Evonovich is some ways, and her characters are so hilarious. Love reading these as my "in-betweeners" to lighten everything up. Fun reading. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kim | 1/12/2014

    " The plot seemed better than the first book in the series, but it seemed to drag. Just like the first book in the series, lots of characters and everyone seems to be a suspect. The characters are fun, but I hope the series gets better, tons of potential, but I found myself skipping pages because the story was just dragging way too much. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa House | 4/4/2013

    " A fun, sassy little romp. It's the second book of Kyra Davis' featuring the snarky Starbucks-addicted Sophie Katz as heroine. The first Sophie Katz novel, 'Sex, Murder and a Double Latte' was Kyra Davis' debut. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stewie's Mom | 2/10/2013

    " I enjoyed this book better than the first one. It took me a book to get to liking Sophie. I now want to get the third and fourth books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nichol | 10/4/2012

    " I enjoyed this novel as much as I enjoyed Sex, Murder and a Double Latte. Once again, I didn't guess who the murderer was, so the story kept me in suspense. Kyra kept me laughing and guessing from one chapter to the next. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kasey | 8/26/2012

    " Another laugh out loud installment from Davis. I once again enjoyed joining Sophie on her amateur sleuthing adventure. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah | 6/1/2012

    " I didn't like this one nearly as much as the first one. It was just okay. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dee | 4/28/2011

    " This book just didn't have enough substance to keep me interested. I was hoping to find something comparable to Janet Evanivitch but it fell flat. I found the humor was mostly in the form of sarcastic one liners. I can't say that the plot really worked for me either. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kasey | 3/6/2011

    " Another laugh out loud installment from Davis. I once again enjoyed joining Sophie on her amateur sleuthing adventure. "

    " book 2 in the Sophie Katz series. Just hysterical! Sophie is a half black, half Jewish novelist/Starbucks addict whose sister, a Martha Stewart wanna-be is arrested for murder. Throw in a gay hairdresser,a sexy Russian PI and Rosemary's baby and you have a great summer read! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Denise | 6/1/2010
