Format: Mass Market Paperback
Heiress Madison Taylor Pruitt is horrified when the police name her father as the prime suspect in the murder of her former best friend Claire, who was murdered in a warehouse. Though Maddie has been angry with her dad and Claire for becoming a couple, she wants to help him, but feels hopeless that she can do anything while realizing that money cannot buy everything. She feels worthless that is until the Gotham Roses offers her an opportunity to go undercover to find the culprit.

Madison agrees and soon struggles with balancing her sleuthing efforts and her job. When hunky teacher John Hernandez enters her complicated life, she finds her world even more difficult to balance as she wants to spend precious moments with him. However, her juggling act crashes when the killer, aware that Madison is seeking him or her, decides to eliminate her.

THE GOLDEN GIRL is a fast-paced action thriller that requires the audience to accept that the lead protagonist is capable of performing daring deeds that a pro could not do. Still fans will root for Madison as she goes undercover to learn who killed Claire and set up her father to take the fall. The romance adds depth to the fun amateur sleuth war of the roses that hopefully will lead to more thrillers including a back story starring Gotham Roses CEO Renee.

I love this book! Madison Taylor-Pruitt is the heiress we all love to read about in society papers, but different in that she snubs her noses at the "Paris Hilton" wanna-be's! I found her refreshing. And once we get to meet her new beau, he is completely enticing...I think the story line is imaginative and leaves you guessing. The book is different from most "chic-lit" books and another reason I couldn't put it down, I think I finished it in 2-sittings!

Erica Orloff launches the IT GIRLS series with a sure hand and a golden touch! Madison Taylor-Pruitt is a great heroine and the story of her coming into her own under extremely challenging circumstances was a read to savor.

Madison Taylor-Pruitt is a wealthy young socialite of NYC elite. Nothing is beyond the capabilities of Maddie - be it running a multi million dollar real estate sale, keeping up on the social scene, or giving her time to help at an inner city school. When her father's girlfriend, who happens to be Maddie's former best friend, is murdered and her father accused, Maddie knows they may have their problems, but her father is no killer. When the Gotham Rose Secret Government agency enlists Maddie's help to investigate the murder, and the real story behind it all, Maddie eagerly accepts the responsibility.

Now she needs to juggle running her family's business in her father's absence, keeping secret who the Gotham Roses really are, and have a healthy relationship with sexy schoolteacher John. Fortunately, Maddie is always up to the challenge.

Though The Golden Girl had more of a chick lit tone than an action adventure, it was still a pleasant read and a good way to spend some time. The action side of things was fast paced and had a very intriguing mystery to it. The romance/chick lit part of the story was well done and I truly felt the attraction between Maddie and John, knowing they were perfect for each other. Maddie adds refinement to John's character and John teaches Maddie to loosen up and be more impulsive.

I love Maddie's personality. She is the type of woman so many of us wish we could be like. She is strong willed, extremely intelligent, great sense of humor, and a killer body to boot. She's also the type of person we would love to hate, if she wasn't such a beautiful person on the inside as well.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
The It Girls series for Bombshell has a fun premise--high society girls as secret agents. In short, Paris Hilton meets Sydney Bristow. What should have been a fun, action packed book instead was clunky,flat and uninteresting. The beginning half of the book was cluttered with flashbacks, coincidences and a clunky attempt at showing the establishment of the Gotham Roses.Coupled with the author's unneccesary attempts to make Madison seem more "accessible" to the average person unlike the aforementioned real-life heiress, an unconvencing and undeveloped "romance"(that frankly, I found to be unrealistic due to social differences--even in the 21st Century), and a distinct lack of risk in concern to the plot, this book fell short of what it could have been. The preview for the next novel reads a bit better than this one, which is why I shall continue to follow the series.
