If you enjoy Stephanie Plum mysteries you're sure to love this one!,
This review is from: Spitting Image (Paperback)
Art restorer, Simone Darling, doesn't like Florida and swore she'd never visit the Sunshine State, but she becomes tempted when her mother offers her a high paying art restoration job. With a empty bank account Simone can't resist. So with boyfriend, Kevin, in tow they arrive in Miami. However not everything is normal, especially when Simone finds a dead body in her mother's fridge - a dead body that has an uncanny resemblance to her boyfriend, Kevin. It seems Simone and Kevin have fallen into a trap, but who has set out to frame Kevin? It will take Simone and Kevin all they've got to try and solve this one and keep Kevin out of jail!
I'm a big fan of Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum Mysteries, and when I heard this series was written in the same vein as Stephanie Plum I absolutely couldn't resist giving it a go.
As an Australian by birth, I absolutely loved the concept of Simone and her family being from Sydney, Australia and relocating to Miami, Florida. After all who wouldn't love all the sunshine and fun that Florida has to offer? Well apart from the crime, drug smugglers and the murder Simone is about to discover.
Spitting Image was an absolute laugh a minute, with all the hijinx that Simone and Kevin manage to get into, as they try to solve the murder. From the first chapter to the last it was laughs, mystery and mayhem and I'm so glad that I discovered this indie title.
If you love a good dose of mayhem and comedy with your cozy mystery, I highly recommend this Florida-based cozy mystery.
