I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy from the Great Escapes Book Tours. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.Suspect in High Heels by Gemma Halliday is a fast-paced, hilarious whodunit. The mystery unravels with Maddie and Dana doing the funniest things to get to the truth.
An antique hatpin and Maddie's mom are wrapped up in a murder? Will Maddie figure it out before the murderer strikes again?

Maddie Springer is up in arms when her mom is accused of killing an antiques dealer appraiser who called her antique hat pin junk. Everything is fun when Maddie and her friends are around. Not to mention her beautiful twin toddlers. I got warm fuzzies each and every time the twins were around. This is a terrific book and fabulous series.

Loved this book. First one I have read in this series, but will definitely go back and read them all. The protagonist is a working mom with a police officer husband, who live in LA. When her mom becomes a suspect in a murder investigation, she attempts to help discover who the real murderer is. She’s a strong woman who cares deeply for her family and friends. This book contains humor, drama and intrigue.

The fun with Maddie continues!

Just when I thought this series came to a close, I was pleasantly surprised to see that Maddie's adventures continues! Maddie attends an Antiques Roadshow-like event with her mom to get some items appraised. Little did they know that the expert appraiser would be so rude and callous ... and later end up dead, with Maddie's mom as the prime suspect. Of course, Maddie must clear her mom's name.

It was fun to revisit with Maddie, Ramirez and Dana. The twins are growin

The mystery we must solve along with Maddie is who killed antiques appraiser Carrington. With husband, Jack, off the case and her mom on the hook, Maddie is going to pull out all the stops to get to the real culprit. I think we get quite a few viable suspects cropping up and the motives are varied. I love how one of the suspects leads us back to a series regular who always find himself in the story. There is also a secondary conundrum about if/ how Carrington was running a scam. This makes the n ...more

One of my favorite cozy mystery book series is Gemma Halliday's High Heels Mysteries. It originally caught my eye from an email I received from The first five books could be bought in a bundle for the amount of 99 cents, and the synopsis included a description of the main character being a fashion designer for shoes. After reading the first book in the series, Spying in High Heels (High Heels Mysteries, #1) , I was hooked. When I heard that the latest edition, Suspect in High Heels (High Heels ...more

“Suspect in High Heels” earns 5/5 Murderous Heirlooms...Engaging Fun!

Entertaining in High Heels! Gemma Halliday’s tenth cozy in her High Heels Mystery is another entertaining adventure following the traditional cozy formula that I love. She starts right off with the conflict and murder implicating a “close to home” person, then delving into the various alternative suspects and motives.

Too good to put down! Good thing I picked this one up on a long weeekend!

I cannot believe that I have not discovered this series before now.

For me and I hope for author Gemma Holiday that is what makes book tours and promo's important. I am so glad this book is touring with Great Escapes. Honestly I am not sure I would have found it otherwise and I am glad did.

Except that Suspect In High Heels is book 10 in the series and now I want to read all the rest!

Gemma Halliday continues to bring the humor in book 10 of the High Heels Mysteries. You will find yourself laughing out loud at some of the antics taking place in Suspect in High Heels.

The characters are well developed and each brings their personality to the story. In addition to the healthy dose of humor, there is just a touch of romance. Nothing too overt, but enough to make the story quite interesting.

Maddie is back, and having two year old twins doesn't slow her down much at all. She still is on the go-with Dana, with Marcus, with her mom, with the murder investigation... Oops. Did I say murder? Yes, a funny thing about Maddie. Murder seems to find her no matter who she is with or where she goes. I mean really, at an Antique show? And when it's her mom in the cross-hairs, she and her side-kick Dana, go into top sleuthing mode. The result is a great book-funny, serious, and a little too close ...more

My very first cozy mystery was Spying in High Heels, the first in the High Heels Mysteries, and not only was I hooked on the series, it started a longtime love for cozy mysteries in general! I followed Maddie through each book hoping another would soon be released, and was delighted when this new book was announced! I found myself once again following the characters of this wonderful series, feeling like another friend of Maddie and Dana, and in the middle of another interesting murder investiga ...more

Maddie and her lovable family and friends are back. I really thought the author was finished with the series and was soo excited to see another one be released. Maddie is one of my favorite characters. This is another fun mystery where maddie's mom is the prime suspect in a murder. This book has antiques, fashion, murder and lots of laughs. What more could you want!

I enjoyed this read thoroughly. I've read the previous books and I wasn't sure how the author could find another storyline. However, Ms. Halliday did not disappoint. It's very good. Love Maddie and Ramirez, they are the absolute power couple, shoes, kids, and crazy friends/inlaws.

OMG I loved it.

The ending made me cry little. The characters in this series really make the stories worth reading. They evolve but keep true to their nature. I totally endorse reading this series.

If she had paid attention to what was said she would have known there was more than one possible answer. Of course it would have been a very short story. The characters really make this series.

It's been quite a wait for this newest Maddie book, but this one was just as fun as the others!

In this one, Maddie's mum is the main suspect in a murder investigation. Knowing it's impossible that her mother committed murder, Maddie takes it upon herself to find the real culprit.

Unfortunately, the investigators assigned to the case are useless, and are quite happy with her mum as their suspect, making it even more important for Maddie to figure out what actually happened, and fast.
