Renegade rich girl Andy Kendricks isn't the belle of any Dallas ball—and that's just the way the debutante dropout likes it! She's got a good life and a great man: her defense attorney boyfriend, Brian Malone. Brian's such a straight arrow that he had to be dragged kicking and screaming to a close friend's bachelor party at a sleazy local "gentleman's club."

So why is the g

Andrea Kendricks thought she new pretty much enough of her boyfriend of four months, Brian Malone, and even thought she might be in love with this lawyer beau of hers. Brian walked the straight and narrow and was even carefully chosen by her ever-interfering mother, Cissy.

He was so clean-cut, such a straight-arrow, not the kind of guy I was normally attracted to, which, in the past, had translated into mostly unemployed artists-cum-bartenders. Definitely not lawyers who went to work in suits,

Susan McBride can always be counted on to provide a good laugh. Her mysteries are simple but oh so entertaining. Andy was born with a silver spoon in her mouth but refuses to conform to the mold. She refused to take part in her coming out party, dresses in jeans and t-shirts purchased from a bargain basement type store, and lives in a simple apartment that suits her style - all much to the chagrin of her mother, Cissy, who continues to try and transform her daughter to what her idea of proper sh ...more

Ya gotta like Andy. Eschewing the deb scene as a teen, living an independent lifestyle as artist/web designer, tolerating her meddling (but with good intentions) society mother is hard work! And now her boyfriend's gone and disappeared, leaving behind in his car a dead stripper and the murder weapon: his Calloway clubs.

McBride has some insight into the Southernhood of women of a certain social class, and her tongue-in-cheek dialogue is usually spot on. You have to like the characters of her book

This was a very amusing read! I loved how Andy would approach things with her attitude and some of her comments. It was very funny at times. I am even thinking about looking into more of this series.

This book was hilarious! Andy is the most reluctant deb/heiress that ever was. Cissy is a force of nature and a pretty spooky mummy for anyone to have to deal with. The bad guys never stood a chance. This wacky cast of characters is out to save Malone wherever he may be. The plot is twisty enought to keep anyone guessing.

Cute idea, but just missed for me. Donated this book to the library.

This is a fun series where Andrea and her mom handle murder with ease. Her boyfriend Brian is the center of this cozy murder tale. She needs to figure out who is framing him in the death of an exotic dancer. Always a good story with Andy from Ms. McBride.

This book was so much fun! Andy Kendricks is a character with lots of sass and attitude and a great narrative "voice". This is book four in the series but the first I've read and I didn't feel like I was missing anything.
Although I stepped into this series at book four, i did not feel lost. Andy hunts for her boyfriend wh went missing after a night at a strip joint. Quirky characters, good plot and fun read. 3.5 stars
Too cluttery and strained funny. The main character's reactions to events don't feel real. Conversations seem built on the attempt at the most misunderstandings and missed opportunities per square inch.

This is pretty good. It's #4 in the series but it doesn't read like you are in the middle of the series. I'm guessing that each novel is an independent story. Enjoy!

light fun read - you know it's going to end well - but the involvement of many of the characters in the final chapter is "cool" -

Get the gist from the product description. I would suggest this series to the Evanovich crowd.
