3.72  ·  Rating Details  ·  141 Ratings  ·  14 Reviews
Exotic dancer Sierra Lavotini's latest brainstorm to help the Tiffany Gentleman's Club turn a profit is a disaster. Sierra, headliner for the classiest strip joint in Panama City, Florida, and the club's owner, Vincent Gambuzzo, invited a gallery of porn actresses to guest star on the Tiffany stage. It's a gutsy plan, considering that most of these silicone-enhanced creatu ...more

The Tiffany Gentleman's Club is in financial trouble. The plan to save it is to bring in guest porn stars and it seems to be bringing in big bucks until a girl is killed by a sniper. The police believe that another dancer, Marla, is the best suspect but Sierra knows that she couldn't have done it. There has been a strange man hanging out at the club and Sierra makes his think that she is related to the mob. Her detective boyfriend wants her to keep her nose out of the investigation but she is de ...more

My flight home was 3 hours late in leaving Halifax so Sierra and her wacky cast of characters kept me company during my wait. It was a quick fun read that I finished before my plane touched down in Toronto.

I enjoyed this book. It was funny yet kept me in suspense.

3.5 stars. I really do like the characters in this series. Their quirks and oddities seem real, not like some "insert wacky neighbor here" characters. Only one more left in the series, which I have in hand!

This book was a very interesting one. It had to do with murder, strippers, and all that jazz. I mostly reccomend this book to girls considering that its a girls book..

I was looking for a series like the Stephine Plum series. I found Nancy Bartholmew's "sierra" and feel this is BETTER then Stephanie Plum. Sierra needs help but can also take care of her self, whereas Stephanie has become somewhat weak as time goes on. The "stripper" character , I feel , is totally believable .
The mystery is also written better, there is actually a mystery. Granted shes not an Agatha Christi, it is still an easy read, but enjoyable.
Unfortunately, St. Martins, the publisher, didn

Good reliable quick read about stripper/sleuth Sierra Lavotini. Too bad there is only one more book in this series. I enjoy them.

Exotic Dancer, Sierra Lavotini-funny light mystery

It doesn't surprise me that I am the first to actually REVIEW this book rather than just rate it. Reading this book is akin to mental masturbation, similar to the fluffy romance novels that are so popular with bored housewives and readers who always want a happy ending.

However, this book (series, I'm sure) has the distinction of being a complete and utter rip-off of Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum One for the Moneyseries, but doesn't raise to the moderate level of Sarah Strohmeyer's Bubbles Ser

Meh. This was a trashy mystery that I read as candy to serve as dessert after a semester of hardcore British and American Literature. It was okay, I guess, but nothing special to write home about. I liked Carl Hiaasen's "Strip Tease" a lot better.

OH yay yay yay! It is in e-book format! Been waiting a long time for these books to become ebooks so I can haul them everywhere I go!

I have loved Nancy Bartholomew's books since the beginning (I have a hardback what looks really badly worn!). Her stripper character Sierra-stories are a fun read, funny, sharp and well written.

The books are intended for entertainment and they do an excellent job. Go in to it knowing that and you can't go wrong! If you haven't read these yet, give them a try - I

I like this series, but this book is not one of the stronger ones. And it's a fluff mystery involving a stripper - be warned
