The stories are independent with no repeated characters.
In order to be humorous, the characters were a little "out there," but that added to the fun.
The first story, "Party Crashers," centers on Jolie Goodman as a new salesperson for Neiman Marcus footwear department. She is grateful for this job because she quit her previous one over a question of ethics. She is "invited" to a party and therein begins the zaniness of party crashing and, of course, a murder or two.
In the second story, "In Deep Voodoo," Penny Francisco is newly divorced and owns a business across the street from her ex. His new love interest is painting "her" house, okay the house that her ex got in the settlement, pink...bright pink. There are many fleshed-out characters in this mystery that involves a good-looking PI who is searching for missing children. This book isn't as humorous, but it has its moments.
Roxann Beadleman helps relocate moms and children who have been in abusive relationships in "Got Your Number."
In the process she loses her job, finds her father, and a new love. None of the characters are reminiscent of those in the other books. The humor in this story centers on Roxann's quirky relationship with her cousin.
In "Bump in the Night," a short story, the protagonist proclaims that nothing good happens after midnight. She is divorced and opens her door to a not-so-former lover. By the end of the story we have seen a murder solved and her relationship with her ex resolved. A very complete and well-developed short story.
Though some serious topics underlie some of the stories, they are still light and enjoyable.
It is a great set of books for an extended and enjoyable read.
Now to talk about the reason why I did give it 4 stars. Each book has it's own twists and turns and the characters are well developed. There is humor and romance. The sex scenes are the right balance of getting your heart racing a little bit without being more like porn in a book.
The first book, Party Crashers, I didn't want to read very bad based on the description. I'm from a small town and the whole idea of these women crashing parties just seemed a little childish. It was a really great story though. I felt so bad for Jolie-it seemed like she got sucked into these situations because she was so innocent and wanted to see the good in everyone. That is a great character trait but in today's society, not necessarily an asset. I did like that the "hero" character was not a cop or private investigator-that seems to be recurring theme too. I thought this book was an easy read and the resolution had an additional surprise that I don't think you will see coming-I sure didn't!
In Deep Voodoo was an interesting story. As you can guess by the title it has some supernatural, witchcraft/voodoo undertones. The whole story takes place during a community festival that revolves around voodoo and attracts visitors from all over. I felt like this book kind of went on and on.Read more ›
