This book picks up where the last left off, with Sophie trying to help her sister Leah while also attempting to win back the affections of Anatoly, the guy she mistook for a homicidal murderer in book one. (Hey, a girl can make a mistake, right?) I'm going to be somewhat spoiler ...more

I kind of missed the supporting characters from the first book, they were there but they weren't. But, this was a more family leaning book. Leah, Sophie sister, is accused of murder and it really goes downhill from there for a while before it goes back uphill.
In all, I liked this book
I liked that the 'together' sister, Leah, allows her faults to be known.
Sophie ' s attitude does wear on me though. If you are that sarcastic then take a moment to examine why you need to bash everyone.
Overall, an interesting mystery and the romance made me want to read the next in the series.

Following Davis' fiery debut novel to the Sophie Katz series, Passion, Betrayal and Killer Highlights comes as a bit of a let down. The suspense is surely lacking for the first portion of the story. Sophie encounters a new type of terror, one that threatens her slightly annoying, but still blood, sister. Despite the potential this story has, the plot fails to ever thicken enough to stand up to its predecessor. The supposed " ...more

This was another quick, fun read from Kyra Davis. I was glad to see the return of Anatoly and more development of his relationship with Sophie. I was not sure if he would retur ...more
That being said, this was still a great read and I read it in roughly a 24 hour period. I'm 100% on Team Anatoly - so I was very happy with his presence in the book. This is a great book that combines chick li ...more
Leah is the kind of sister that makes you wonder if they you have the same parents. Sophie shows what lengths she will go through and how much money she will spend to protect her sister.
I love Sophie and her friends, Dena, Mary Ann, and Marcus.
This was just what I was looking for - a fun, light escape. I enjoyed this one more than the first in the series. The books are definitely more chick lit than mystery - and that's a good thing when you're looking for something to just sit and enjoy.
I am not a fan of Sophie's sister, who's accused of murder in this one, but she does lighten up a bit in this one and we get to see more from Sophie's very Jewish mother, who's a real hoot. And not to forget Anatoly, their relationship picks up in this book. ...more
Now I've listened to or read all the books in The Sophie Katz series and can't wait for more!!
No matter how hard Sophie tries she just can't seem to stop getting involved in solving murder mysteries.
Sophie and her friends keep you drawn into every story right up until the last word.

I do wish we got to see a little bit more of Marcus, Dena, and Mary Ann. Especially since they were such major players in the first book. Their contributions in ...more
