Summary

Jolie Goodman never yearned for a life in Atlanta's fast lane. All she wants is a career in real estate, and she's willing to sell shoes at Neiman Marcus over the holidays to make ends meet. But recently, her boyfriend vanished - with her car - and her search for answers leads her to some very exclusive circles. Jolie hooks up with a pair of retail fashionistas who have made crashing society bashes an art form, and soon finds herself rubbing shoulders with the rich and famous...and rubbing other body parts with one of Atlanta's most eligible bachelors!

But Jolie can't shake the feeling that she's being pursued...right into a dangerous clique where friends and enemies look the same, and flirtation is the preferred party favor. Jolie and her gal pals become the toast of the town ... until a body turns up at a sexy soiree the women have crashed. The fun and games come to a dead end when the "crashers" are fingered for the murder.

The women have to pull all the tricks out of their designer bags to try to trap a stalker before Jolie, once the life of the party, becomes the death of the party.

Not very entertaining

Any additional comments?

I have enjoyed previous books by this author but this one was rather boring and predictable with a pathetic heroine. The narrator's voice was uninteresting which did not help.

Fun and entertaining

I'm not usually a fan of romantic mysteries, especially with a Cinderella vibe. However, this book was very entertaining. Jolie, a sales clerk at Neiman Marcus, begins crashing parties with friends in order to discover who killed her boyfriend. Along the way she finds herself implicated in the crime. I found myself laughing aloud and cringing at some of the situations Jolie faced. The writing is good and the mystery is well-developed. The characters are really interesting. The narrator does a very good job with the voices and accents. This is a definite must read for cozy mystery lovers.

Good read.

First time listening to a book. The story was intriguing and filled in a few areas of the Body Movers series. Keep the stories coming.

Cute

Cute mystery to kill time. First time listening to this narrator and I would listen to her again. When listening the narrator “makes it or breaks it” for me. The detective was irritating when in the scene, least enjoyed character. She just came off dumb.

Twists You Don't Expect

I have always enjoyed Stephanie Bond's books for the awesome character descriptions that make the
people so real, but the plot twists in this book were surprising and delightful! I would say this is the best of her books that I have read so far!

Fun

Just the thing for a reprieve from anything really serious. Love how Bond slyly slips humor into her stories and characters!

Enjoyable Romance

This is the kind of light romance I enjoy. With a little mystery thrown in for a bonus. Good story, mostly predictable but the dialog is good; the characters fit the story and the narration wraps it up for an enjoyable listen.
