Have you ever heard a sound that made you want to find out more about it, when you probably should have been going in the opposite direction? Well the first sound Maddie heard was her long lost father’s voice, and the second sound was a gun shot.
After the two sounds echo through Maddie’s ears she decides that she must go find her father in Las Vegas, and figure out what’s going on. Her mother won’t hear of it though, but being stubborn Maddie she goes anyway lying about where she is.
When she finally finds him she finds out things that she probably never wanted to know and gets caught in the middle of smuggled fake high heels. Of course she did not go alone, her best friend, Dana and the receptionist at her step-father’s salon, Marco tag along. She tries to leave her sexy cop, Ramirez behind, but he was not about to let her be in harms way.
In the next book of her series Gemma Halliday takes the klutzy fake detective on an emotional family seeking journey and throws her in danger. This mystery once again makes me wonder why can’t I do everything in a pair of high heels? What Maddie does takes some extreme skill and luck.

Soap operas have more drama off set than they do on set. When Maddie finds out that the main character on her favorite soap opera has been receiving life threatening letters she decides to take it upon herself to go undercover and figure it out. In order to do that she has to figure out a way to get on set. With her best friend she finds her way on set, but where ever Maddie goes murder follows, and soon there is a murder on set.
Maddie, her best friend, and her sexy cop boyfriend all find a way to be on the famous soap opera set to find out who the murder is.
This novel is an amazing follow up mystery to her first one following the cute clumsy blond around who can’t stay away from fast food. Of course read this mystery because they are addicting, really good, and they make you feel like you can do anything in a cute pair of heels.

I have no idea what books I want to read next, well other than continuing to read my series of Gossip Girls, Meg Cabot books, and Shanna Swendson’s and Gemma Halliday’s, but new books. I’m looking for new books!!! I need suggestions or I’m just going to aimlessly search Amazon for new books to read. I hope someone out there helps me out!
This book is the perfect murder mystery for girls. There’s fashion, there’s murder, there’s romance there is everything that you can possibly ask for in Gemma Halliday’s Spying in High Heels.
I took this with me on my cruise on my kindle and I could not put it down. The book immediately gets going and you want to know what the main klutzy character, Maddie, does when trying to solve a murder by herself. Of course the police was involved, but she figured that she was better than the police and could do it herself, sometimes getting herself into more trouble than was worth, but hey she found herself a hot cop… who could ask for anything else? Did I mention her stuck in the ‘80s mom and her could possibly be gay step-dad, and a real dad who ran out on her with a show girl? Yes this book has a lot more than just a mystery, but the mystery is good too.
This might seem like a short review but I don’t want to give anything away in this book. This mystery has twists and turns throwing the reader a surprise. It also reminds girls that it’s okay to look cute and still be able to do amazing things and snag a hot guy as well.
As soon as I finished reading it I got on my laptop and bought the next one so I could continue reading this wonderful series. Seeing a trend here? My thing right now is definitely mysteries.
I highly highly highly recommend this book because it was just that good. If you have a kindle, get it on the kindle if you’re not sure because it is very cheap, but like I said I got the next one immediately after I was finished.

So… I ended up reading a lot more books than expected, but not all of them were on my list.
I didn’t read Kite Runner and I only read a little bit of Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder. What I did read though was amazing.
I ended up reading Spying in High Heels, Undercover in High Heels(both by Gemma Halliday), Once Upon Stilettos, and Enchanted Inc (both by Shanna Swendson).
These 4 books were perfect for the cruise. They provided me romance, murder, mystery, excitement, and the compelling urge to not put the books down, though I was reading all of these on my kindle.
Look for more posts on these 4 books as I write what I thought about the book in it’s own book review.
