Sofie’s a young Greek-American woman living in Queens. If you’d asked her a few months ago what she’d be doing now, she’d have replied, “I’m going to be married to a wonderful guy and working at my father’s, or maybe my grandfather’s, Greek restaurant.” That was before Sofie caught the groom in a compromising position with her maid of honor just before the wedding. Before she punched the priest who tried to get her to marry the cad anyway. Before she chucked her engagement ring into the garbage disposal. Before she became a junior detective for her uncle’s detective agency.

Now Sofie’s searching for a runaway wife possibly wanted by the FBI and for a vicious neighborhood mutt. And she’s got the hots for Jake Porter, Australian mystery man that Sofie suspects is either a bounty hunter or a federal agent.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dan | 2/20/2014

    " Tori is a good writer but here is more to Tori Carrington then just her writing. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Maureen | 2/14/2014

    " Complete trash. I was backpacking & had finished the only other book we had with us. Cover says it's like a Stephanie Plum book - NOT! This isn't even comparable to Evanovich's lame motor series. What a waste of time, and lots of holes in the plot - save yourself, and your time for anything else... "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Stephanie | 2/10/2014

    " Did not like, one of the few books that I wish I had just given up with and not finished. It wasn't just that it was a horrible imitation of Evanovich's Plum series, it was like the book had a split personality. Which could be attributed to the fact that its author, Tori Carrington, is actually a husband and wife team, Lori & Tony Karayianni. From reviews I've read, the series may actually get better, but I'm not willing to risk wasting anymore of my time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sonia Ashby | 1/14/2014

    " A fun mystery, especially if you like Greek food. Unfortunately for me I don't, so I started skipping over some of the descriptions of Greek food. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Juanita | 1/13/2014

    " This was a fun read and one I am reading again just to lighten up my week. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sharon Malcolm | 1/10/2014

    " Unfortunately not good enough to warrant reading the rest of the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sheri Zuccarelli | 12/29/2013

    " This is very much My Big, Fat, Greek ripoff of Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum novels, but it is a cute story with likable characters. I don't know if I will read the next one, but this is a quick chick lit read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Michele | 10/30/2013

    " Terrible rip off of the Stephanie Plum series. I did not finish it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emily Monroe | 9/18/2013

    " I love Sophie! I would think something aboands situation and Sophie would think the same thing. Fun story with a little mystery and a little romance. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dona | 9/17/2013

    " This was a quick read so I finished it, but I didn't think it was that good. The writing was immature and too wordy for me. I did love all the Greek references though! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Miss | 9/2/2013

    " Just not good enough. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bethany | 7/27/2013

    " quick and easy -- entertaining "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lalalaura | 5/27/2013

    " It was a light read. I enjoyed the witty humor. Story line was good. I will read the next one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristin | 1/15/2013

    " I've read the first three books and liked them. They're kinda like the Janet Evanovich ones but different enough that it doesn't matter if they're a little similar. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Christiana | 11/16/2012

    " Okay. It tried to be Stephanie Plum and didn't really succeed. I found that I enjoyed and laughed more when I read the Plum books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessica | 7/30/2012

    " It's the Greek version of Stephanie Plum. Think My Big Fat Greek wedding meets Janet Evanovich. Lots of bumbling PI work and funny situations. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Iris Robinson | 7/1/2012

    " Entertaining! Funny and sexy. The reader did awesome accents and voices, which definitely adds to the experience. Will check out the rest of the series! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karen | 5/29/2012

    " I enjoyed this book, but it is a bit too much of an Evanovich rip-off. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Laura | 5/21/2012

    " Think of it as a watered-down, "lite" version of a Stephanie Plum novel. Eh. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joy | 3/29/2012

    " Funny new mystery - reminds me of Stephanie Plum. Quick read "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Anggun | 3/18/2012

    " quite hilarious..easy reading yet fun.. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Don's Books | 2/21/2012

    " What a fun mystery! Similar to Evanovich's style, but with Greek instead of Italian characters. And the Carrington's make the best baklava I've ever had. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 shannon | 2/20/2012

    " i thought the story was ok, but i didn't care for the writing at all. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeanne | 2/3/2012

    " Cute. If you like Janet Evanovich's Plum series, check this out. Greek girl in NY. PI (in training), instead of Bonds bailman. Not quite as funny, but I still laughed in places. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Martha Rice | 1/6/2012

    " Absolutely loved this book. Something a little different from the normal romance/mystery. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cindi | 12/2/2011

    " A light, funny read that channels "my Big Fat Greek Wedding"--sometimes a little too closely. But Sophie is fun, feisty private eye I would like to spend more time with. I will probably read the sequels. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kara | 9/6/2011

    " Almost like Stephanie Plum and My Big Fat Greek Wedding had a racist baby. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lisa | 8/29/2011

    " It's in a genre I've been reading lately...single girl detective/PI's/ bounty hunters. I guess the most disappointing thing is it's like an Evanovich novel, only she's Greek-American and a PI instead of a bounty hunter. They borrowed heavily from Evanovich, but they are entertaining nonetheless. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Zelda Readalot | 7/19/2011

    " Enjoyed listening to this one on my ipod. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bethany | 12/10/2010

    " I thought that maybe this series would wrap up in 3, but I guess there is room for 1 more, or more... "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Cindi | 9/8/2010

    " With the meaningless bed-hopping and drug use, this series just lost a reader. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ruth | 5/26/2010

    " ok. fun quick read with lots of greek bits and bites. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carrie | 3/24/2009

    " This one was good- you have to cheer for Sofie as she learns to play the field. "
