Tomi Reyes is a documentary filmmaker who moonlights as a receptionist to pay the bills. It’s an easy gig — until she gets promoted, and her somewhat interesting life goes totally insane. For starters, her new boss, Scott Martin, morphs from nice guy to creepy dictator in the space of five seconds. Then, the bodies of her friends start turning up in their refrigerators. Tomi may suspect Scott, but all of the evidence is pointing to her! She’s wondering what to pack for prison, when a childhood pal Nicholas “Nickels” Turino is the (very hot) FBI agent assigned to the case. When the killer sets his sights on her, she realizes she’ll have to unmask the psycho herself or die trying. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anelie | 2/20/2014

    " I enjoyed this book. It was a quick but satisfying read. I figured out before they did who the killer was and that it was more complicated than it appeared but I enjoyed the main character and her friends. I too found her immature but not unwilling to grow up (which I find annoying in both fictional and real people). I also liked her devotion to her family. I also liked her recognition that, for her, her job was not her career, something I can identify with. I did find it interesting that she was unable to tolerate boredom and would plug into her devices T sometimes inappropriate times but apparently that's common now. "

    " This is an excellent book with compelling characters. It is warm and humorous and suspenseful, and the plot wasn't too predictable. I wish Annette Sandoval would write more books like this. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura Shannon | 12/28/2013

    " I liked this book. A funny, light read and it was well-paced and I really like the main character. I would give it four stars except as mysteries go, it was a pretty easy one to figure out. I knew who the killer was pretty early in the story. I like mysteries to be a bit more challenging. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tami | 12/11/2013

    " Spitfire-a receptionist who gets promoted to a admin-targeted by a serial killer......I enjoyed the book-some parts of the book just annoyed me, however I would share this book with my friends "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Samantha Davenport | 11/14/2013

    " A fun light read. Like others, I thought it was a bit padded at the edges but quirky and endearing enough to be the kickoff novel for a successful suspense/mystery/romance series. If you like Janet Evanovitch's Steph Plum you'll like Tomi. Not a bit deep but quite enjoyable. "

    " Terrible. My dog is a better writer. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carla Hommel Krissinger | 11/3/2013

    " Hilarious. Stephanie plums goes Latino! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Whitney Roesch | 10/18/2013

    " Despite it being a bit predictable, the book had some (often humorous) twists. I read this one straight through, cover to cover! I enjoyed it so much and the humor and wit Annette's writing displayed had me laughing out loud the entire time! I cannot wait to read the next book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary | 10/3/2013

    " I read the first chapter and I had to pre-order it even though I don't own a Kindle. But I do have the app on my phone and for this book, I will make do with the tiny screen. Yes, it was that good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeff | 9/22/2013

    " A new author to me. Good book, interesting characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Petula Darling | 9/3/2013

    " This is the author's first novel and it had numerous typical first-novel missteps, but I enjoyed it and hope she writes more. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Heather | 8/10/2013

    " Great humor, quick read, though the author gives the impression every business in San Francisco has a clever, trendy name. The mystery sort of died at the end (no pun intended) and the murderer's reveal was anticlimactic because he/she never seemed like a real threat. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nancy | 6/6/2013

    " This book was super-cute. Not great literature, but a very entertaining, fluffy mystery. Oh, the first chapter was an exchange of emails, which I find very annoying, but that ended quickly. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sonya | 5/6/2013

    " Could have gone into a little more with the boss and his wife but it was really good. Read it in two days. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amanda | 4/14/2013

    " This was funny and a pretty good mystery. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sherry | 3/21/2013

    " Very enjoyable quick read. Written in a day at the office style and lots of humor. I've never read a mystery in this style before and it kept me guessing on who did it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janice | 2/16/2013

    " Enjoyed this book, if you like to read the Stephanie Plum books by Janet Evanovich you will find this enjoyable read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kirk | 1/29/2013

    " Ok book, not to be sexist, but this book was geared more toward a female perspective. More romance than action / suspense. "
