The stories are cute, and lighthearted. Most pages have typos of some sort. This can get irritating. Don't know if it's an Amazon thing, or the publisher, but it makes reading difficult.

I thought these would be fun, but between the bad grammar, the typos, and the totally ditsy "heroine" I was really put off. She lies, cheats, doesn't have an ounce of sense in her head. I kept thinking that they'd get better, but unfortunately, at least for me, they were a total waste of time and money.

The books are silly, brainless time-wasters which are arguably fun and/or cute to read.

I've probably lost a few brain cells. I certainly didn't learn anything valuable. I disliked most of what Maddie does, but I can't help but call this a guilty pleasure in that these novels were predictable, simple, had a fantasy guy, were light reads, and always had happy endings.

The heroine is annoying more often than not, because she's constantly doing what we the audience know she shouldn't do. On the other hand, the rare appearances by Detective Ramirez for some reason fulfills the unrealistic and cliched fantasy of "hunky, yet sensitive" knight in shining armor. He--even in his unoriginal dialogue and descriptions--was probably the only character that we want to like despite all the novels' many character flaws.

Each book follows the same basic formula, and can be read in a couple of hours as there isn't much to think about.

[SPOILERS BELOW]

Here is the basic formula for each of the five novels:

1. Maddie, petite shoe designer, gets dressed to the nines in whatever brand is hot the year the book is published.

2. Maddie is late for wherever she's supposed to be.

3. Someone gets killed.

4. Maddie finds the body and/or becomes the prime suspect.

5. Hunky yet caring LAPD Detective Ramirez enters the scene. He is always described with a day-old stubby jaw and hard body, with a dark look that makes Maddie swoon.

6. Maddie ignores good sense and does her own investigations into the murder, and always gets in trouble.

7. Hunky cop rescues or bails her out, scolds her, and then kisses her up against the wall.

8. Maddie then avoids hunky cop and continues investigation.

I adore reading Janet Evanovich books and was waiting for the newest to publish so I decided to try this series and was I happy that I did! I enjoyed each of these books and have ordered all the other books this author has out. Great find. I am glad I read the reviews on this author!

I just LOVE this series!! Maddie, Jack and all the support characters are awesome. I found myself laughing out loud several times while reading this series. I first downloaded the 1st book for free. After reading it I knew I wanted to read all the others, so I went with the box set and it was SO worth the money. I can't wait for the next full novel in the series that is supposed to be out this December (2011). I did read the Valentine's Day book ($1.49) and it was good for the price. I've skipped the Christmas one, since the reviews were poor in regards to the price vs. length of the story and the fact that you don't miss anything in the series continuation. I've also read her other spin-off series, Hollywood Headlines Mysteries (box set) and it was also worth the price and a fantastic series. If you love this one, then you'll love that one too!

I bought these on kindle because of the price (publishers note this remark.) These books were not bad. They had a sense of fun and a bit of slapstick. You kind of have to join the author's world which is not quite the real world, but that's ok as the author does seem to live within the rules of that world. I only read 3 (or maybe 2.5) because they did get a bit trite. This is not high literature, but a fun bit of fluff. Some bits get tiresome (how often can the heroine and her boyfriend fight before it becomes and obviously dysfunctional relationship that we all know really shouldn't be...)

I plan on reading the rest in the future. I just couldn't do them all back-to-back.
