Top Customer Reviews
1. It doesn't offer a fetishistic, glamorous view of the fashion industry. It is grounded on a phenomenal amount of insider, no-frills know-how that gives the book a layer of credibility you don't find in other books set in the fashion world.
2. Laura Carnegie. The main character isn't beautiful; she's cynical and bitter; she often says very stupid things she regrets; and she doesn't have everything figured out from the beginning. In short, she's much more real and relatable than most who-done-it heroines who always seem to be unrealistically sexy and cool.
3. I genuinely didn't know who the killer was. Usually I do, but there was never a moment where I felt like I was ahead of the book.
Everything is going great even with the usual problems concerning the "Giraffes" (that is supermodels to you and me). Just as the show is ready to begin, Laura finds her top Giraffe dead in the bathroom.
Suddenly, Ruby is accused of her murder and the police are convinced that she is the murderer after discovering some new information about her relationship with the model. Laura doesn't believe the police will continue to search for the real killer so she starts her own investigation. Laura, with a little help from her friends begins to uncover information about an under age model agency that might lead to the real killer.
Christine DeMaio-Rice style of writing is full of wit and humor that adds a lot of fun and charm to her stories, this book even more so than the first in this series. What drives the story for me are the characters, they all are unique in one way or the other and as the story progresses we find out more about them. The personal relationships between Laura and her ex boss Jeremy and most interesting Ruby and her new relationship are at the fore front of this story. All the characters that we loved and hated are back again aiding Laura to help find a murderer and save her business.
If you liked the Stephanie Plum books you will not be disappointed with these characters, Ms. DeMaio-Rice's characters are just as flawed and funny but in a different way that is enjoyable. I am looking for to the next installment in Laura and Ruby's life and relationships. I was lucky enough to be offer this books to read and review with no restrictions as to a good review.
I would be remiss if I didn't mention that Ms. DeMaio-Rice also did the beautiful cover art for this book, it seems she is very talented in more than just writing.
As good, if not better than the first book. This series belongs front-facing on the shelves of a major bookstore.
DeMaio-Rice is a talented voice in the mystery genre with a certain je ne sais quoi that is unbeatable.
My favorite line hands down -- "You can't take the hard things too seriously, really. It all works out in the end."
Point of View: Once again you are looking at Laura (fashionista detective).
Voice: I was so ingrained in thew characters that I did not even begin to check for author voice. Personally I think that Christine is all about wit.
Character Development: Wow, Christine is able to take your emotions for a character and confuse them to the point of being convuluted just to drop you back off at endearment. You will begin to argue for Laura. (I did)
Plot: In every book we read we are always driven forward by the plot. Without a good plot the story dies and we never finish. With that said you should hold on for dear life because this book's plot does not drive you, it drags you.
Dialogue: I only know what I know of the fashion world from TV and the first book in this series. With that said I would have to say that the dialogue is smooth and effortless. One question though "Giraffes" really?Read more ›
