4.0 out of 5 stars Cute and Fun, April 28, 2010
This review is from: The Missing Ink: A Tattoo Shop Mystery (Mass Market Paperback)
If you have ever heard of, watched, or enjoyed the TLC show(s) Miami Ink or L.A. Ink then you'll definitely like this book. The main character, Brett, is a hip, young tattoo artist working in the Venetian Casino in Las Vegas. She has her own shop inside the casino shopping area and a few employees that work alongside her - Bitsy, Ace, and Joel. Her brother is her roommate and also a cop on the local police force. Brett finds herself caught up in a mystery when a woman comes in to get a tattoo and ends up missing a few days later; ... was the last person to see her alive. In the typical cozy way, the main character is involved in almost all aspects of the disappearance, instead of leaving detectives to their work. She comes across some less than savory people along the way, and also finds a spot of romance. The author has a great setting and character to work with - the use of the tattoo shop and Vegas give the book a certain 'edge', which was great, but the plot itself could use a lot of tightening. The characters were a bit jumbled up - the storyline didn't flow seamlessly and there was a lot of confusion about the girl who had disappeared and another girl who was involved somehow. The author doesn't clear up a lot of the story until the very end but, by that time, the whole story got a bit confused and hard to follow. There were characters involved in the story that didn't even have a central role in the end result and could have been eliminated. Anyway, I will still read the next one in this series though because the setting is fun and interesting.

Again, too many characters to sort out, but not as confusing as her follow up book.
