NEW RELEASE....



A vacation on the Southern California coast promises rest and relaxation for flamboyant senior sleuth Sadie Kramer and her mischievous Yorkie, Coco. But when the body of a heartthrob celebrity washes up on the beach outside her luxury hotel suite, Sadie's fun-in-the-sun soon turns into sleuthing-with-the-stars.



The resort's wine and appetizer gatherings, suspicious behavior of hotel guests, and casual strolls along the beach boardwalk may provide clues, but will they be

This was an excellent short read, perfect for summer. Sadie and her little Yorkie Coco are on a "vacation" in California at a wonderful resort, she is waiting to see the celebrity Garrison Quinlan, who is scheduled to appear at a party. That evening though, as they are anxiously awaiting his arrival, a very distressed man appears and tells everyone that something has happened and he can't say what, but that Quinlan will not be there. The next day Sadie sees a commotion on the beach and realizes ...more

Sadie and her feisty, mischievous Yorkie are looking for relaxation but can a sleuth every find refuge from a mystery? As a believer in "there are no such things as coincidence", I think Sadie was brought to Casa Playa and invited to the exclusive event by fate. It gives Sadie a chance to indulge in the life of a celebrity -- which proves to be less than it looks from the outside. Garner brings every scene to life and makes you feel like you're right there beside Sadie. The variety of locations ...more

I just love Sadie Kramer's mysteries books! They remind me Agatha Christie's books and Sadie is such a great character with her adorable Yorkie Coco!
This story brings it all: mystery, Hollywood scandal and great characters that will not make you stop reading.
Since it is a mystery book I will not spoil it because it is unfair to the new readers and the fun of this book is to hook on for the ride and enjoy the story. But, I can tell you that Deborah Garner is a wonderful, fun author who can delive

This would be my first book bu Deboard Garner and I am in love! Used to read some mysteries when I was a little younger ( not that I am old!) but they got to be very repetitive with their series. It was getting easier and easier to figure how, who, why and how before the book even got too far, least to say it's been awhile since I read anything like it. 

A Flair for Flip-Flops was a great way to jump back into those mystery books and it was a blast to read! I want to read the other ones in the se

I chose to read this book after receiving a free copy. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

I read A Flair for Chardonnay and A Flair for Drama which I enjoyed, so I was happy to read another book in the Sadie Kramer Flair Mysteries.

A Flair for Flip Flops is a murder mystery with a quirky main character who likes solving mysteries. Sadie often seems to be in the right place at the right time, and she tends to discover clues that detectives overlook. This time, she is on

I have read several of the Sadie Kramer mysteries by Deborah Garner and have loved each for a different reason. A Flair for Flip Flops is the latest addition and did not disappoint at all. In this particular mystery, Kramer is not in San Francisco where she lives and owns a boutique. She has decided to take a vacation at a Southern California resort that is on the ocean.

Of course, Kramer's wonderful little sidekick Coco the Yorkie is with her on vacation. And the pup is full of energy, bringing

I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.

First of all, this is a cozy mystery if there ever was one. Our lovely amateur sleuth, Sadie Kramer, is a delightful soul with a lovely little dog as well (who actually helps solve the murder). There is no gratuitous violence, sex scenes, or profanity in the book. Nothing but a crime with a bit of fun along the way.

This was my introduction to Sadie and her do

Sadie Kramer is on vacation looking forward to some rest and relaxation. Of course she has her tiny Yorkie with her. He goes everywhere in her tote bag--and has a mini palace set up in the hotel room. Sadie coordinates clothing so it is uncertain who has the most outfits! And what outfits some of hers are. Somehow or another she was handed special tickets to a celeb dinner and tote with dog in hand goes. She ends up sitting at a table way in the back and at that table she meets a women just like ...more

This book is SO MUCH FUN! Sadie Kramer is a professional and hard working woman getting some much needed R & R with her cute Yorkie, Coco. I was so excited when Sadie was invited to what sounded like a fun night with celebrities and all that glitters. However, the vacation turns around into an unexpected mystery and the dinner did not turn out as expected....

Famous heartthrob, GQ, later washes up on the beach and Sadie finds herself playing private investigator with her new friend and sideki

This is such a fun, quick read! Sadie and Coco are on vacation and wind up being invited to a celebrity function. Sadie quickly makes a friend, and unsurprisingly a mystery (and a lot of hilarity) ensues!

Can Sadie help solve the murder without becoming a victim herself? With Coco as an ever-present friend in her handbag, Sadie can enjoy a relaxing vacation and a good mystery while embracing her love for the beach and shopping.

This is a great addition to the series, but can definitely be read as

Even if you haven't read any of the other Flair books, as long as you enjoy cozy mysteries (and adorable little dogs) you'll love this book. An intriguing mystery that Sadie and Coco jump feet (and paws) first into. After all, why relax on vacation when you can go sleuthing? Brilliant, relatable, lovable characters, and a mystery that will have you guessing until the very end.

Sadie and her trusty side-kick Coco had checked in at Casa Playa, a luxurious boutique hotel, for a seaside vacation. Unknowingly, Sadie had timed it the week they were hosting private celebrity events and was mistakenly invited to such. The main event centered on famous, well-loved Garrison Quinlan, who is a no-show. Sadie later finds out that a body that washed up by the hotel was identified as Quinlan. Being the sleuth that she is, Sadie smells foul play in the death, and won’t give up until ...more

Delightful!

Sadie and Coco are a hoot! How two dear, funny beings happen upon so many murders is a mystery in itself. Sadie takes a much needed vacation only to find herself right in the midst of the hullabaloo of a celebrity’s murder. She and her new found friend, Myrtle, scour for clues and steer the police in the right direction. Ms. Garner has done it again with her delightful characters and interesting plot.

Trouble always finds her.

Sadie is off on another adventure and makes a new sleuthing friend. There is always a new adventure waiting for Sadie and sweet Coco.
