In a city brimming with opportunities for heroism, twenty-seven-year-old Zephyr Zuckerman has often fantasized about committing acts of bravery that would make front-page news. Now she may get her big break—though it may require plunging a few toilets. When the superintendent of her parents’ Greenwich Village brownstone is led away in handcuffs, unemployed Zephyr takes over his post and unleashes her inner sleuth, discovering titillating secrets about her tenants—from a smoky-voiced French woman who entertains throngs of unsavory visitors to a moody musician who just has to be hiding something—and realizing that her new reality is far more intriguing than her imagination.

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by JoAnne | 2/16/2014

    " This is a debut novel for Uviller. It was very slow to capture my attention but after reading about 50 pages it began to be more interesting. A little bit of a mystery but not typical of that genre. I will give Uviller another try since she does have a followup novel with the same character and her group of friends and family. We'll see if I like that book any better. "

    " I loved this book. I thought it was great, just what I was wanting to read and I loved the characters. Chick Lit for sure, but by a smart writer with engaging narrative. Forgot to add that I would laugh almost every page. "

    " i was all geared up for this book. i expected hilarious stories about how the main character deals with the residents of her building. but no, it was all about her love life. if you're looking for a quick, light read, then this book fits the bill. "
