Fans of Stephanie Plum, meet Tiffany Black, A.R. Winters's new heroine in Innocent in Las Vegas.
I remember reading Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum novels when I was in my early teens. I raved about them. But then I grew up.
Somehow, Innocent in Las Vegas takes me back to that time, when an innocent enjoyment of books and laugh out loud capers were paramount. I have to say although I can draw parallels between the two characters, I relate more to Tiffany Black, and love her interactions with her clients, suspects, and friends and family. Especially her family. The book is very wholesome, and while it does feature some violence (often with a comedic slant), it is free of bad language and graphic sex - I know this will make some of you doubt its 'realism', but I can tell you it most certainly doesn't.
I can't remember laughing out loud quite so much while reading for a very long time. Winters has a real talent for writing, and gives the characters unique voices that will have you giggling into your book.
A great plot with realistic characterisation and entertainment value, this is definitely not a book to be missed by lovers of mysteries, chick lit, spunky heroines and all things cupcake.
I found the "who" part of the "whodunnit" quite surprising. I think it wasn't what I expected, so that also pleasantly surprised me.
I would recommend this book to mystery lovers, and those who like a good, heart-warming, funny read.
The characters are a straight off copy of the Stephanie Plum books - thirtyish untidy single woman living away from home and trying new dangerous job, mom desperate to get her married off, kinky granny living with mom and dad, noncomittal taciturn dad, nice elderly neighbour, OCD hunky bodyguard with mysterious past and at the end of the book a possible policeman boyfriend.
Come on A.R.Winters - couldn't you have thought up your own characters? Imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery but this was over the top !!
This ruined what could have been a very enjoyable read for me - I was expecting Tiffany and Stone to morph into Stephanie and Ranger at any moment.The story plot would have been good if I hadn't felt a sense of deja vu the whole time. The writing itself was good, easy to read and had no grammar mistakes or other errors, the plot flowed smoothly and for readers unfamiliar with the Plum books would probably be 4 or 5 stars.
I'm sure A.R. Winters could write a really good book that isn't an Evanovitch wanna-be. Had I paid for this book I'd have felt ripped off big time. As it is I am not encouraged to buy a book of hers in case it's another rehash of someone else's work.
UPDATE: I sent an e-mail to Janet listing our concerns. Her admin, Ken, shot me back a reply. Janet is aware of this book. She has taken the high road, that "Imitation is the highest form of flattery." She thanks us all for watching her back. What a gracious lady.
