Goodreads/Library Thing

About the Book:My name is Addison Holmes, and I teach history at James Madison High School in Whiskey Bayou, Georgia. You might be under the assumption that my life went to the dogs when my fiancรฉ left me at the altar for the home economics teacher, or when I got notice that my apartment building was going to be condemned, or even when I was desperate enough to strip to my unmentionables to earn some extra cash so I could buy a house. The truth is that I’m pretty much used to disasters following me around on a daily basis, but I could have gone without finding my principal dead in the parking lot of a seedy gentlemen’s club.

After the initial shock of finding my first dead body, which included throwing back shots of Jack Daniels like it was water, I decided to take stock of my life. I was in a desperate situation, and if the school board ever found out I’d been a stripper, even a bad stripper, I’d be jobless as well as fiancรฉ-less and homeless. Fortunately, I have a friend who felt sorry enough for me to give me a job doing some surveillance work at her detective agency. And it didn’t bother me one bit that it was the equivalent of a pity f**k. Money is money, and I was about to be homeless. Not to mention the fact that I was now able to stick my nose into other people’s business for a good cause, find a murderer and pick up helpful tips from an incredibly attractive detective.

WARNING: I use the word “fun” a lot in this review but seriously it was FUN!

First Thought When Finished: That was totally fun! I needed a light, fun mystery and this filled the spot ๐Ÿ™‚

Story Thoughts: This was just downright a delightful mystery with some pretty good twists and turns! It took me a little bit to get totally caught up in the mystery but once I did, I had fun trying to figure it out. Those are my favorite kinds of mysteries–the ones that you want to figure out. This one, I only got partially right but all the clues were there. The story was plotted out well by Liliana and gave you all the clues to play sleuth along with Addison. Darn it all that I couldn’t figure it out before the end ๐Ÿ™‚

Character Thoughts: Holy walking disaster and oh-so fun to read: Addison Holmes is all that and more. I mean how often do you meet a high school teacher who can get themselves into so much trouble? Seriously, right out of the gate this girl is pretty much in one jam or another. She is smart and resourceful but I love that she is full of faults. I kind of would love to be her BFF! She is great leading lady for this story and I hope there are many more mysteries to come!

Audio Thoughts:

Narrated by Connie Ventress / Running Time 7 hrs and 10 mins

Connie did a wonderful job with the narration! I thought the pacing, accents, and emotions were delightful. I will probably continue this series on audio if available.

Final Thoughts: I really enjoyed this mystery and think it would appeal to fans of the Stephanie Plum series (no love triangle which makes it even better in my book). FUN FUN FUN!

  1. I’ve never read a light mystery before (at least not a non-paranormal one). This looks like it would be a fun break next time I’m in a genre rut ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Well, dang! I thought I commented earlier, but I guess it didn’t take, lol. Anyway, I said that Addison sounds like a hoot! Love that she’s a history teacher/bad stripper. Ha!

  3. Just from the blurb, Addison sounds like a trip! And thank god for no love triangle (it’s getting old in the Plum novels, probably the reason I haven’t yet picked up the last two…). This one, though? It’s coming home with me.

  4. I’ve been reading a few fun books and I’m enjoying myself so much. SO have to read this one. I need more of those and this so fits the bill.


    In the blurb she says her life went to the dogs. I know my spoiled babies and yours… wouldn’t that be a good thing? LOL

    • I actually think your mom would like this one. It is fun, light, and has a few really good twists and turns!

      It would be a good thing but I think in this case it is more those junkyard dogs than the spoiled pooches we have LOL

  5. I think this sounds like a hilarious read. I am all about walking disasters and sticky situations. I have one coming up this Saturday that is like this.

  6. Hahahaha yes, there is an abundance of “fun” in this review, but sometimes, that’s just the best word to describe a book:) As I am a HUGE fan of the Stephanie Plum series and it’s utter ridiculousness, I think I’ll be giving this book a try:)

    • This is right a long the same lines. Her friend is a PI and hires her to do surveillance only—well you can just guess how well that works out. It might involve a track suit, a very high tree, and a lesson in smexy that she will never forget. LOL

  7. When I saw it was a cozy mystery, I was thinking you hadn’t read one in a while. Glad it was FUN. Your review had me thinking Stephanie Plum when you started talking hot mess of a teacher. Funny. Then this sounds like one I need to think about grabbing, because I love fun.
