This book- the second in the Tucker Sinclair series by Patricia Smiley- was, as I expected, an easier read than the first. I know these aren't "new" books, but they are new to me, prediction that the author would hit her stride by book two was pretty dead on. There was one moment in the story where I found myself wrenched from my reverie by sheer disbelief, but it was so minor, I can't even remember what it was that seemed so dumb now. These books are funny- they are easy to read, but th ...more
This book, along with some others, was given to me a couple of years ago. I finally got around to reading it, with little expectations. I was pleasantly surprised to a find likable heroine In Tucker Sinclair. There is enough action to keep the reader interested. The nickname the writer gave Tucker (Tuckie), however, I hope won’t be repeated in other books.

I've had this book for sometime ... decided to read a mystery. I liked it and did finish it ... but it was just OK. Somehow most mysteries are not my usual genre. The characters in this were "colorful" and the heroine was cute and interesting ... all in all, not a bad book.

I enjoy this series, too bad she only wrote four books.

Oops - I did it again. Stumbled on this book, the description sounded good, so I read it believing it was a stand-alone. Guess what? Wrong - this one is the second in a series! I enjoyed this story enough that I've decided to backtrack and pick up #1. Some people might feel this is a watered down Kinsey Milhone-ish heroine, but I found her fairly likable and the mystery kept me guessing until near the end, so those are good signs. One is forced to branch out when she is fully caught up with almo ...more

The second Tucker Sinclair mystery, where Tucker's college sweetheart who dumped her is brutally murdered. His wife, Tucker's former best friend from childhood, is the prime suspect, and Tucker gets drawn into the complicated circumstances. A good mystery with well-defined characters and a lot of local (LA. and surrounds) sense of place.

I liked Tucker as a character, but was not impressed with this storyline. Just had issues getting captured from the beginning. By the end of the book, sure I was from sheer determination of wanting to complete the book and curious to see who actually did it. Several characters in the book so pay attention.
I liked this story. Fun, quick, set in Los Angeles. The only thing was it felt like she tried to hurry up and tie it all up at the end... it seemed like it just sped through the last few chapters where the main character finds out "whodunit".

Second book in the series. It was better than the first. There was more going on with the characters. I forget the actual story line but remember liking it!

I had semi-high hopes for Cover Your Assets because the first book, while predictable, was entertaining and easy to read. Alas, this book was just plain silly.

I read it because it was all I had at home to read. Not my kind of books and it was just OK for me.
