Boxed set of five award winning High Heels Mystery novels featuring fashion designer turned amateur sleuth, Maddie Springer, including:

L.A. shoe designer, Maddie Springer, lives her life by three rules: Fashion. Fashion. Fashion. But when she stumbles upon the work of a brutal killer, her life takes an unexpected turn from Manolos to murder.

Maddie straps on her stilettos and, along with her trigger-happy best friend, makes tracks for Sin City in search of her MIA dad.
Maddie finds not only her dad, but also a handful of aging drag queens, an organized crime ring smuggling fake Prada pumps, and one relentless killer. Plus, it seems the LAPD's sexiest cop is doing a little Vegas moonlighting of his own. In a town where odds are everything, Maddie bets it all on her ability to out-step a vicious murderer.

Secret affairs, hunky gardeners, and housewives desperate enough to bare it all… welcome to Magnolia Lane, TV's hottest new prime time show… where a rising young starlet is found dead on the show's set. Now it's up to Maddie to sift through a leading lady with a secret, an actor on the verge of a nervous breakdown, a sexy cyber scandal, and one tabloid reporter who'll stop at nothing to get the story of the century. Not to mention Maddie's hot-cold relationship with the case's familiar lead detective, Jack Ramirez. In a world where secrets, lies, and deception can earn you an Oscar, Maddie plays the role of a lifetime to catch Hollywood's hottest killer. But if she doesn't watch her step, Maddie's fifteen minutes of fame just may be her last.

Baguettes, bodies, and haute couture galore! Shoe designer turned amateur sleuth, Maddie Springer, is at it again, this time in fabulously fashionable Paris. When Europe's designer de jour, Jean Luc LeCroix, invites Maddie to show her creations at Paris Fashion Week, Maddie's sure she's died and gone to heaven. That is until Jean Luc's top model is found dead on the runway, stabbed with a familiar stiletto heel. Sure someone is trying to frame her, Maddie enlists the help of her friends, including the sexy Detective Jack Ramirez, to uncover a daring jewel heist, a devious blackmailer, and even a few skeletons lurking in the closets of those closest to her. But as the evidence mounts, Maddie becomes the prime suspect and Ramirez is stuck between a badge and a cute blonde with a tendency for trouble. Will he stand by her as she attempts to track down an international killer, or will this be the case that finally comes between them? One thing's for sure, if Maddie doesn't uncover the real killer soon, she may be saying her final adieu.

Maddie Springer is finally walking down the aisle with the man of her dreams. And she's got the perfect wedding planner to pull it all off in style. Well, perfect, that is, until the woman winds up dead – murdered in buttercream icing. With the help of her fellow fashionista friends, Maddie vows to unveil the cold-blooded killer, but as the wedding day grows closer, tempers flare, old flames return, and Maddie's race to the altar turns into a race against time.

fantastic series

 on 23 February 2015
By C. Butler
I came across this author by chance and so glad I did as this author appeals to my taste in writing and I’m very particular! What didn’t I like about these stories? Absolutely nothing! The series follows a shoe designer turned amateur sleuth even though she doesn’t set out to be a detective as it just seems to fall into her lap. The situations our heroine finds herself in are at times laugh out loud and the flow of the story is brilliant and keeps you hooked till the very end and I pride myself on not jumping to the end as I would miss so much fun and understanding of events! This series has it all from great characters and odd situations to a gentle love story in the background and I really can’t praise this series enough and yet I’m ecstatic as there are a lot more to read following on from the last book in this set so the fact I do not have to wait a year for next book is a bonus! If there is one series to try I would recommend this one.

Just the perfect chick-lit boxset

If you want intellectual challenge, then these are not the books for you. If you are a literary snob and want “worthy” tomes, then skip to the next books offered. If however, you want to be entertained, with great characters, some amusing moments and a little bit of “whodunnit”, then these are ideal. Maddie Springer just cant help falling over dead bodies – literally. It has its upside – she meets her hot hunky cop love-interest thanks to her knack of being in the wrong place at the wrong time! Maddie can’t leave well enough alone though and with her friends and family, sets out to solve each murder that she stumbles across – in her own inimitable and slightly ditzy way. The results are a series of thoroughly entertaining books. I enjoyed these so much, I delayed starting the eagerly awaited 5th book in a series I have been avidly collecting – that is high praise from me indeed!

Funny and well written!

This has much the same style as the Stephanie Plum series of books by Janet Evanovich – same sense of humour too. As I love the Stephanie Plum books I just know I’m going to love this series too, even though I haven’t finished reading the first book yet!! If you like something written in a pretty flippant style, that doesn’t take itself too seriously but has good plots and some interesting characters, then this is the book for you!!

Light hearted murder mysteries

 on 17 April 2014
By Georgette Mac, Durham
If you want something more than a murder mystery, in fact mixed with fun and farce, this is one boxed set anyone would enjoy. Our heroine’s on/off romance with Ramirez the sultry cop adds a bit more to the plot as does her dotty mother and mother’s best friend MrsRosenblatt along with her spirit guide.

fun collection of books with murder and romance

 on 27 November 2013

If you don’t mind the very American jargon, these books following the antics of the woman telling the story are easy, non anxiety-making, murder mysteries. Intriguing and easy to read. It gets on your nerves that she doesn’t stop eating and yet doesn’t seem to get fat and it can be a little predictable, but as they are cheap, it is a good buy for a gentle read to get you off to sleep.

Not my usual sort of book; I’m not big on romance or silly young women, but these are well worth the read. The characters are convincing while not being like normal people. It has a sort of innocence which made me think of Enid Blyton’s adventure series updated for adults and shifted to the US.

Bought this box set for 77p what a total bargain! Such a wonderful surprisingly hilarious romantic unique series. You have to read these books in private or not mind people starring as you laugh. Love the world that this amazing author writes. Brilliant! I will be reading more who could you not x
