Book #5 in the Pauline Sokol mystery series. Pauline seems to be getting more independent in her investigating skills and is starting to find the clues on her own without Jagger's help all the time. Not that Jagger is out of the story by any means. Though I like this series and see the similaritis to the Stephanie Plum series, Pauline is not quite as "street-smart" as Stephanie and seems more naive...more cutesy if you will, than Stepanie. This book was probably one of my least favorites of the ...more

I think I am going to give up on this series. I hate it when an author keeps using the same phrasing throughout. I'm amazed that the main character still has a jaw since her is constantly dropping. She does the same thing with re-occurring themes throughout - as in the heroine can't seem to think straight when there is a handsome man around. She also is incapable of taking care of herself and constantly needs to be rescued by the men in her life.

Good book. It's the first I've read by this author. Definite similarities to Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum. The writing isn't as tight, and there were typos and one sentence spoiler where the story got ahead of itself. I'll try a couple more by this author.

I felt that this book tried to compete with Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series, and it just didn't make the cut for me. I suppose that someone without prior knowledge of the Plum series might enjoy it.

Okay. I did not find the characters believable. I couldn't imagine the people having the money to investigate. However, in the world of plastic surgery this sort of thing could indeed happen. The tone of the book is wrong and it just wasn't well written.

I really liked this book but kinda wanted a bit more between Jagger and Pauline at the end. Just my silly love goosebumps acting up!

This one wasn't for me. Conversational, chatty, light and I'm sure quite amusing/funny for some, but I just found it didn't have enough to keep me interested in the "mystery".

After working thirteen years as a registered nurse, four of which she felt like "Hot Lips Houlihan" while serving in the United States Air Force, Lori Avocato picked up a book and said, "Hm. I can write one of these." Yeah right!

Oh, she wrote several all right--twenty-one to be exact--but getting them published proved to be another matter. Throughout the years, she realized it was not an easy task
