Los Angeles shoe designer Maddie Springer is all set for her date with detective Jack Ramirez when he calls to cancel because he has to meet someone. She confronts him at a notorious pickup joint, where, sure enough, he's at a table with a gorgeous woman who turrns out to be a reluctant informant who doesn't take kindly to Maddie's freak-out. Jack isn't happy either when he's reassigned to babysit an actress on the popular nighttime soap Magnolia Lane who is being stalked. The irrepressible Maddie feels awful, so she gets a job in the wardrobe department of the show to try to help Jack identify the stalker. So begins the third installment in Halliday's charming and funny High Heels series. As Maddie stumbles onto quirky characters on and off the set and dangerous situations that could really put a crimp in her love life, the body count rises. Halliday is on top of her game, and readers will love Maddie's new adventure. Hatton, Maria --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Maddie is spunky, tenacious, and great fun. She certainly isn't qualified for the roll she assumes, which causes her to stumble through the mysteries and mostly solves them by being in the wrong place at the wrong time. However, this adds to the overall humor of the book. All the secondary characters are also great. Jack Ramirez is a sexy and realistic character who cares about Maddie, even if he isn't sure how to deal with her antics. Dana, Maddie's best friend, is a sex addict trying to get help for her addiction which adds for some funny situations and moments. We also get to see more into the Tabloid reporter, Felix. He is the mysterious character who Maddie isn't quite sure how to react to. Maddie thinks she dislikes Felix, but it seems more like she doesn't wish to accept that she does actually like him. I am waiting to see what happens between Felix and Maddie, as there is some tension between the two that hopefully will be explored in later novels.
Overall this was a very enjoyable read and I am really liking this series. Granted, there are some incidents within this book that seems too convenient and sometimes not realistic, but the lightheartedness this book is going for seems to make it work. So if you are looking for a simple romantic-mystery with a delicious guy, then I highly recommend Undercover in High Heels for a nice lazy weekend.
Okay, so in this book Maddie is so all over the place that I would have thought that she had taken my `dobby reference' in the review of the previous book in the series personally. Only I do happen to realize that this book was written way before I had even started to read the series - so that's not the case. I wonder how she gets so much time off her job to get into so much trouble! But there is some development in terms of the characters in the story and it was much welcomed after the somewhat `stuck' feeling in the first two books. Also, in terms of the plot, this book is an improvement over the first two - lesser holes and inconsistencies. I am glad to see the series finally maturing.
This series is still not for hardcore mystery buffs. Its more in lines of chic-lit and comedy since the series's USP is the author's sense of humour that she portrays through her characters. Light read and fun.
Yet another terrifically fun read from Gemma Halliday!
