"Stilettos & Scoundrels" Review

Presley Thurman, a sassy, thirty-something red-head, was looking to reinvent herself. She didn’t allow the fact she was recently fired to bother her - she was ready to pursue her lifelong dream of becoming a writer. Presley is a lover of shopping and Starbucks, and even though she sometimes had bad taste in men, she always had great taste in clothes. 

Not looking back on corporate America, Presley decided to follow her dream. With her feisty nature and a spirit to not “sweat the small stuff,” she was ready to tackle any challenge (even if she had no idea how she would pay the bills). When her friend Trevor offered her a job with his online magazine to interview public figures, she jumped at the chance.

However, the new job turned into something unexpected when the U.S. Senator she was slated to write about was murdered - in her home town! Presley was excited - she hadn’t seen so much buzz since the spring sample sale at Saks. She was ready for this adventure, even if it didn't seem to fit neatly into her life. She couldn’t pass up the opportunity to be in the middle of the buzz.

Presley was betting her favorite pair of Manolo’s she will find the killer… but will time run out?

This was a cozy suspense mystery with just a bit of light bickering romance thrown in to keep us wondering...will they or won't they?  It was the first time I read a book by this author, however that may be because this is her first fiction book. For a first book it was an okay book to read.  It was fun and had some funny parts. But sometimes Presley got on my nerves, always having to have her own way, to the point of just get over it and grow up!!! But being of the older generation I think the 20-30 year olds will probably like the book much better than I did.  As I said it was an okay, and kind of a fun lazy Summer day book to read, so I am giving it 3***

I read this book for my Just For Fun Reading Challenge this month.

I won this book from Kristin at Always With A Book. Thank you Kristin.
