The hunt for the missing shoe just wasn't very interesting, no matter how sparkly or expensive the shoe was, and nothing about the characters or situation, involved me enough to even care. Luckily, I'm already acquainted with Laura, Jeremy and the other main characters and know how great they are, so this didn't bother me too much. Really loved the three other books and guess I shouldn't complain too much since I got this one free, but if you read this one first and are disappointed, please don't stop --- give the other three books in this series a chance or try some of Ms. DeMaio-Rice's other books (also writes as CD Reiss). That's my take on it, as always, YMMV.
If one were to read this and think that it is demonstrative of the writer's craftsmanship, then I feel that such a person would be reluctant to persue the works further. Rather it is a curiousity in that it points to the trend that will be developed in future e.g. obsession with brands, fashion etiquette, city night life, and the eternal quest for romance in the big city. Those who wish to write should read this to see how poorly expressed ideas can germinate it polished story telling. Why this was released as a "prequel" causes me to ponder about the stratagems of the publishing world.
With her job in jeopardy, Ruby and her sister Laura go on the hunt for the missing red, over-priced shoe. The craziness that ensues while the sisters traipse all over Manhattan and Brooklyn backtracking Ruby's steps of the previous night and early morning is a madcap comedy of strange people and even stranger places. Will they find the shoe in time for work on Monday morning? And if they do find it, will it be in a condition that will conceal its travels around New York City?
Recommended for anyone looking for a good laugh or a quick mystery where nobody dies.
This was a fun story and I really enjoyed watching Laura and Ruby chase the missing Blahnik all over Manhattan. I felt that the characters really came alive, the story was fast paced, and it was well written. Considering that this was a free download, this was a real bargain!
I will be looking for other books by this author.

This book was fun, fast, and interesting. I enjoyed the interplay between characters, and the mystery was well crafted. First time a shoe played an active leading part!Published on February 5, 2014 by Amazon Customer
It was just OK. Too much filler made story slow. Shallow story plot and characters, kept hoping it would take off but it never did.Published on May 26, 2013 by Amazon Customer
Fun to read but awfully light and obvious. What saved it for me was the background of the fashion industry.Published on February 13, 2013 by Kelly and Howard Lute
