This is the second short story featuring the clever detective Stacey and her storybook prince Chad. I really enjoyed the author's take on solving these fairytale "mysteries", as well as the fact that the heroine is strong, witty, and smart enough to figure out who dunnit without having to be rescued. This is a refreshing take on Snow White and the poisoned apple, and I recommend it to anyone looking for a fun read!

This is a humorous tale that mocks the fairy tale genre. It is not a book for children who will not understand the satire, but adults and older children will find it funny and enjoy it. References are made to many fairy tales, such as Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, Alice in Wonderland, The Three Little Pigs, and there are birds that sing Disney tones. The primary focus is on Snow White. The story's detective finds out that Snow White has been murdered with a poisoned apple, and she suspects Snow's stepmother. The detective is in love with the prince and is jealous of his attentions to Red Riding Hood and Cinderella, and she doesn't want the prince to kiss Snow to resurrect her.

Detective Stacey Alexander continues her adventure in the Thrugood kingdom in Clever is as Clever Does. After dating for a few months, Stacey is ready to hear those three little words from the sexy Prince. But the Prince has yet to say them.

Along comes Wenceslas, a Saint Bernard sized rabbit dressed in a plaid coat and tie and speaking with a Brooklyn accent. He enlists Stacey's help in solving a murder at the home of the Seven Dwarfs. She jumps at the chance to distract herself from her dilemma. But this open and shut case turns complicated when a gang of biker pigs turn up as the lead suspects.

After a girl fight with a wicked Queen in Jane Fonda workout clothes and a run in with a magic mirror, Stacey solves the case. Now the only thing left to do is revive Snow White with a kiss from a Prince and life will go on. But that means letting go of the one thing she wants most.

Linsey Lanier's snarky voice shines through in her latest Detective short story. The author kept this grown-up fairy tale light and humorous all the way to the end, leaving the reader with a sense that all is right with the world. I can't wait to read the next phase in Prince Chad and Detective Stacey's romance.

The "fractured fairy tale" is pretty well-established subgenre at this point and Lanier doesn't bring anything new to it. Her heroine's bravado comes off as totally fake and the main theme of the book is how hot the prince is. The constant reminders of how attractive he is are so blandly expressive and repetitive, especially since there doesn't seem to be anything else to their relationship.

Too many jokes in the series depend on the heroine's knowledge of fairy tale characters and situations and this fatally compromises the mystery (and makes me question her intelligence since she spends most of the story chasing down false leads).

I happened across this book whilst purusing Amazon, and I hadn't read the first book in the series. When the book first started, I was like, WTH is going on? I was confused, but laughing at the same time. It really kept me turning the pages.

Then when I finally figured out what was going on, I read it without stopping (it's short, so it didn't take too long). Either way, the author has a wonderful way with words and had me rolling on the floor with some of the dialogue and descriptions.

LOVED. IT.

Awe, shucks Lanier was doing so well with her fractured fairy tales and this one spoils her record.

"I wanted to give his butt a pinch with my gloved hand." XXX

Chad and I were plodding down a winding road on the far side of the farm belonging to the kingdom's Farmer-Treasurer, the goose-with-the-golden-eggs dude and I was feeling relieved I didn't have to deal with his anal butt today. XXX

"Who the hell are you?" XXX 'Even an evil step-mother shouldn't say this!'

Blond hair and sweat and boobs flew everywhere. XXX Not necessary to describe Dolly Parton like step-mother.

Clean it up, then I would read it to my grandkids.
