Killer Heelsby Sheryl J Anderson
Synopses & Reviews
Hilarious, sexy, and loaded with suspense, Sheryl J. Anderson's slick debut novel pits advice columnist Molly Forrester against the magazine world, Manhattan's singles scene, and cold-blooded murder...
When murder plays havoc with your career, sex life, and Jimmy Choos...
Molly Forrester enjoys playing a "Dear Abby" type for Zeitgeist, a Manhattan glossy. She's always hoped opportunity would knock, not throw itself at her feet as is the case when she stumbles literally over a colleague's body in her brand new pumps. Now her chance to get closer to real news has presented itself as she stares at her spoiled Jimmy Choos planted firmly in a pool of blood...
It's time to call your girlfriends...
Molly recruits trusty chums Cassady and Tricia to help her solve the crime. But she's getting distracted by the adorable homicide detective on the case. Unfortunately, she must first deal with Peter, her pretentious boyfriend. After a second name is brutally struck from the masthead, Molly investigates and stumbles again. This time, it's on dangerous secrets within Zeitgeist's ranks. Now her involvement in this gory chaos might just cost her a whole lot more than a pair of upscale designer footwear...
"Sparkles like fine champagne....will tap right to the top of the Best First lists."
-Carolyn Hart, author of Murder Walks the Plank
Molly Forrester, an advice columnist for a Manhattan women's magazine with a hankering to write for the big time, trips over the perfect story--murder--in this hilarious and sexy debut mystery. Martin's Press.
All Molly Forrester wants is to find that one big story that can redirect her journalism career away from the sex/relationship advice column she writes for Zeitgeist magazine ("wedged somewhere between Marie Claire and Cosmo") and back to the serious news business. But she didn't expect to trip over it, especially when "it" turned out to be the bloody body of one of her coworkers, and she certainly didn't expect to ruin her brand new Jimmy Choos over it. Never mind, though--she knows that solving the murder of one of the magazine world's most notorious lady's men will solve all her problems, including assauging her guilt for blowing a month's salary on a pair of shoes ruined in one night. All Molly needs is a little help from her girlfriends, and perhaps a few detecting lessons from that cute homicide detective.... Or is he cozying up because he thinks she's a killer?
Sheryl Anderson delivers this totally charming, wildly clever, and puzzling debut about murder - and sex - in the Big Apple. What her characters find, is that, compared to negotiating Manhattan's singles scene, solving one eensy teensy stabbing shouldn't be that big a deal, right?
