It's a gutsy plan, considering that most of these silicone-enhanced ...more

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

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..

Exotic Dancer, Sierra Lavotini-funny light mystery

Light frivolous read, would be great for the beach.

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

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,

A zany Florida mystery peopled with exotic dancers, gangsters, a crazy elderly lady, and a hairless chihuahua...
It could have been better edited. At one point a dancer puts a gun in her mouth when the author intended for her to chew some juicy fruit.

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.

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
