L.A. shoe designer Maddie Springer hasn't seen her father since he reportedly ran off to Las Vegas with a showgirl named Lola. So she's shocked when he leaves a desperate plea for help on her answering machine - ending in a loud bang. Gunshot? Car backfire? Never one to leave her curiosity unsatisfied, Maddie straps on her stilettos and, along with her trigger-happy best friend, makes tracks for Sin City in search of her MIA dad. Maddie hits the jackpot, all right. She finds not only her dad, but also a handful of aging drag queens, an organized crime ring smuggling fake Prada pumps, and one relentless killer. Plus, it seems the LAPD's sexiest cop is doing a little Vegas moonlighting of his own. In a town where odds are everything, Maddie bets it all on her ability to out-step a vicious murderer. She just hopes her gamble pays off... before her own luck runs out.

Maddie Springer just can't seem to stay out of trouble. As soon as she solved the mystery from the last story, she gets a phone call from her estranged father, only to have him hang up before she can get any information. With the help of her friends, Dana and Marco, Maddie heads to Vegas to find the man she hadn't seen since she was a child, but things are not as she remembered, and Hot Cop, Jack Ramirez, on her trail.
Maddie has no problems getting herself into trouble, despite trying to keep out of it once she gets there (Marco and Dana are terrible influences), luckily she has Jack who always manages to bail her out. I did feel that Jack got REALLY condescending and chauvinistic in this installment. Now that he knows Maddy better, he's still acting like she's a little weak woman.
Felix was a fun addition, and I love the banter he shares with Maddie, and it was nice to uncover a bit more of Maddie's past by finding her father.

BTW, the Kindle version I have of this book is formatted well and while there is a spelling error here and there, nothing distracts from the story.
So, for fun cop drama, the so called "chick lit" of the crime scene material, I am now drawn into this series and will be getting more of these as I find time to read for my own enjoyment. Gemma Halliday has a way with weaving stories and making them enjoyable, fashionable and fun.
I enjoy the witty, humorous style, the romantic storyline as well as a plot full of twists and turns, and despite some of the rather improbable situations that befall our intrepid heroine, the plot line has plenty of twists and turns and keeps you wondering.
I find it easy to overlook the improbable because overall, the book is otherwise so well-written.
I also have to say that as crazy as Maddie is, and despite the fact that she gets herself into ridiculous scrapes of her own making, she is a sweet and likeable heroine and I enjoy all of the return characters, Marco especially.
If you can overlook some of the less realistic parts of the storyline, it's a very fun read. Just don't take it too seriously (after all, it's not meant to be a police procedural) and enjoy the humor.
