I have read a couple of books from this author and she continues to blow my mind. This is the second book in the PJ Santini series. You will have to read the first book in order to understand what is going on this book. I was so excited when I seen this book. I was hooked right from the beginning and I could not stop until the end. You will fall in love with these characters all over again. It only took me a few hours to devour this amazing story.

PJ Santini is still trying to find out the truth

5 +++++++ Stars

I DID NOT WANT THIS BOOK TO END!! Seriously, I loved the first book and if it's possible I loved this one even more. I think being inside of P.J.’s mind is one of the most fascinating and completely hilarious places to be. Her thought process cracked me up in most cases and I want to be her friend and I also want to order one Tango Daly please…***sigh***

This book was awesome, had everything I love in a book all tied up

This is the kind of book that grabs your attention from the very beginning and doesn’t let you go until you have finished the last page. This is fast-paced and will have you turning pages to find out what going to happen next.

The story HEELS OF FORTUNE: PJ Santini Series: Book Two by Lynne Russell is a mystery book that I loved reading.

I come from a large family but we have nothing on PJ's family. We all have those members that you just don’t talk about. Most of the time it’s never the main crew. PJ isn’t so lucky. Lol! Her mom and dad had me in giggles. I loved the relationship between the characters and how they came together. Bonds with people that truly know you are the things that make up our core.

This is a romantic crime thriller. With more twists than the last rollercoaster you rode on.

PJ Santini is a news reporter as well as a private investigator. She is good at both jobs, but investigating is by far her favorite. Well, until the crime is around her and her family. Her husband died while on their honeymoon. But as time would have it. There is more to who he was then she knew. Now there is still a 6 million dollar diamond mis

Heels of Fortune: PJ Santini Series: Book Two by Lynne Russell was an amazing read. I loved the first book, Hell on Heels, but Heels of Fortune is even better! It's not often an author can exceed expectations of what they delivered with a first novel, but Lynne Russell has done that in spades!! The romantic suspense and mystery that unfolds in this novel was exquisitely thought out and portrayed. The sequences were not overdone and flowed seamlessly without effort. It worked in such a way that t ...more

Heels Of Fortune (PJ Santini Series Book 2) by Lynne Russell was a fast pace, super fun, twisty turning read, that had me hooked!

The second book in this series, and man oh man I am in love with everything about it. Reading like a standalone you can jump right in, if you haven't read the first book, Hell on Heels. But I highly suggest you do, cause it just as good as this book, and just one hell of a time. P.J. is something I tell you, if you read the first book you know what I'm talking about, a

First of all, the first PJ Santini book was amazing. It was a one sit read for me. When this book became available, I jumped to one-click it.
PJ Santini is a sassy, high-heel loving, novice gumshoe detective, PI and TV reporter. In this latest novel, PJ is investigating the case of her late husband, who she was married to for a very, very, very (you picking up what I’m laying down?) short period of time. Every new piece

Heels of Fortune: PJ Santini Series Book 2 by Lynne Russell. Let me start by saying I LOVE these books. They are the best books I've read in a long time. This book kinda picks up where Hell On Heels leaves off. PJ Santini is a "reporter" when she shows up to the newsroom and a private investigator. She loves high heels and her family and best friends. PJ is constantly getting into messes. Her husband dies on their honeymoon and she finds out he left her with a big secret that bad people don't wa ...more

Heels of Fortune is the second book in the PJ Santini Series by Lynne Russell. It is a great second instalment and continues the adventures of PJ Santini. It’s a private eye mystery with a fast pace, danger, suspense, and that somewhat sarcastic sense of humour I loved from the first book.
We met PJ Santini in the first book Hell On Heels- she’s a smart, independent, witty, stubborn, and inquisitive television news reporter who moonlights as a private eye. We follow her on her latest inve

Heels Of Fortune is the second book in Lynne Russell’s PJ Santini series! In the first book we got a pretty good glimpse into PJ’s mind and I think it was a pretty fascinating and hilarious place to hang out at! You settle in and you do not want to leave!

HEELS OF FORTUNE is book two in the "PJ Santini Series" and I don't think the author suffered a sophomore slump with this installment to the series.

PJ Santini is a feisty, independent woman who is multi-faceted. She is a news reporter and a private eye. She has a sense of style and a sense of humor. She's someone I would totally want to be friends with if she were real and wore my shoe size.

The story is fast paced, has great supporting characters who help move the story along and maintains its q

Heels of Fortune in book 2 in the PJ Santini series by Lynne Russell. I liked this book better than the first, as the character development is done and we could focus on the story. It should be read following book 2, as it is the continuation picking up right where book one left off. PJ Santini is a private investigator, as well as a TV reporter, who just helped solve the murder of another local reporter. She has strong family ties and her family is very much Italian. She has a good solid networ ...more

Heels of Fortune by Lynne Russell is the second book in the P.J Santini series. This book picks up where the last left off, but P.J. is going to find herself in a completely different mess.

P.J. has an uncanny ability to get herself in the middle of some pretty interesting and dangerous situations even when they aren't her fault. Which makes for a great and entertaining experience with some laughs thrown in for giggle.

Well just when you thought this author couldn’t create a read that was even better than Book 1 in the series, she went and wrote Heels of Fortune.
This once again had brilliant characters that help tell the story and make it even more captivating to read. Lynne Russell has written this book to have suspense, twists and turns, humor and to be just a fun, fast-paced, packed to the brim read that you can’t help but not want to put down.

Another MUST read from Lynne Russell.

Russell can’t just be good at the news...no of course not. She has to also be a powerhouse with a pen.

Our heroine, PJ Santini, is so incredibly well written, she feels like my best friend, or the version of myself I wish I had the guts to be. Sassy and snarky, everything is told as it is by our girl. This latest installment in the series is another fast paced escapade with suspense, humor, hi-jinx, and just plain fun.

After reading the first book, I had decent expectations for the sequel. Lynne Russell didn't disappoint and I was pretty well hooked from the first page. The plot was more evenly paced than the previous book and I didn't feel like there were as many instances of "this was written for a male character and was switched at the last second" but there were a couple where I was thinking if the gratuitous description of PJ's anatomy was entirely necessary. Tango was interesting but I just kept giggling ...more

Heels of Fortune is the second PJ Santini Series book. Lynne Russell has linked the two books together so you will have insight to what is going on. The story continues for PJ Santini and the mystery continues. PJ is a television news reporter by day and a private eye by night. She has family to assist her in her mysteries. Her husband was murdered in the first book and her investigation shocks her and brings to light conclusions that she may not be ready for. She will need help from people in h ...more

I personally would read the first book in the series, Hell on Heels, before you dive into this one. Both are so fantastic so you won’t be disappointed that you did! PJ Santini is just one heck of a MC. She is what makes these books so darn phenomenal. I honestly want to be her, or at least know her. The way that Russell has written her Santini feels so very realistic. I swear I ca ...more

Heels of Fortune is the second book in the PJ Santini series. It can be read as a standalone.

As with the first story, it took a little bit for me to get into this book. The writing style takes a little getting used to. I also found that the extraneous side stories were a little distracting. Overall, I liked this book better than the first one. I felt like this book had more action that kept things a bit more interesting. The best character in this book is Nonna Giovanna.
