When the book opens, Franki’s a cop, working a beat, with her comically flatulent partner, in Austin, Texas. After having a humiliating experience on the job, which involves finding out her boyfriend’s a cheat, Franki decides that she’s sick of being on the police force, sick of living in Austin, and sick of her interfering Italian family who will not get off her back about her perpetual singlehood. So, she picks up stakes and moves to New Orleans to work at a detective agency run by a friend that’s called “Private Chicks, Inc.”
I've always been fascinated by New Orleans and the culture there, so I really loved the local color provided by the author in this book. As I was reading it, I felt like I was transported to the French Quarter where I could hear the jazz music playing and smell the spicy Creole food. New Orleans provides the perfect sultry and mysterious backdrop for the investigation that Franki and her boss, Veronica, embark upon as they try to clear their client of murdering his girlfriend in the fancy boutique where she was employed.Read more ›
The characters are interesting especially the landlady a retired stripper. The book is well plotted and fun to read. Now for some it may move a little slow. Ms. Andrighetti may have erred a little toward building Franki's character to thoroughly in the first book. I had no problem with it but some might if you like your books to move at break neck speed.
Being a Texan and an Italian, I may have gotten the humor more than most. I had a few aunts who could have given Franki's grandmother a run for her money. If you like books along the lines of Janet Evanovich, Stephanie Bond and Christi Craig you should be happy. Something a little different but yet familiar.
Setting the book in New Orleans was great fun. There is a lot of room for this series to grow and I will be watching for the next book.
