    It's kind of difficult to review mysteries. If you mention something and
    say it's not a spoiler, then you're basically giving away the fact that
    that's not a clue/important, etc. Which is a spoiler. So I like to focus
    on characters because I think that in the modern cozy-type mystery,
    characters make or break the story. Why? Because most of these are
    series and you have to like and/or be interested enough in the
    characters to keep reading the series year after year. Which brings us
    back to this series and its main character, Lola. Now, the previous book
    in the series, Hasta la Vista, Lola!, was released in 2010. Then, no
    book in 2011. I was disappointed and sad because I really like the MC,
    Lola. So, I'm very happy that this series is continuing. More
    importantly- for review purposes- is that I even remember Lola. Now, I
    read about 400 books a year. I've read 1000's of mysteries. Many of the
    mysteries blend together and I often can't remember the name of the main
    character, but I do remember Lola. I love Lola's loving, loud, sweet,
    and eccentric extended family as much as I love the mystery parts of the
    book. The one bad thing about this series: not enough of Lola's grandpa.
    Who I just think is adorable and cute. This is why creating great and
    memorable characters is so important in a mystery. Every year when you
    get the latest book in the series, it should be like going to a family
    reunion. It should feel like visiting and catching up with friends. And
    this is how that series feels. Back to this book...in part of it, Lola
    needs to do some investigation at a nudist resort. Which, um, Yuck. And
    because Lola shares my feelings about nudist resorts, the scenes there
    are among the funniest in the book. The nudist colony pretty much freaks
    Lola out. I think that Lola would agree with my "4 Layers
    Rule". Which is logical and only right when you think about it. The
    "4 Layers Rule" is one of the cornerstones of my family's
    neuroses. The "Rule" states that: "At all times there
    should be 4 layers of clothing between your genitals and other people's
    genitals." (Your underwear and pants/dress/skirt and the other
    person's underwear... 4 layers.) Now obviously a nudist colony violates
    The Rule in an extreme way and, rightly, this kind of leads to Lola's
    discomfort with being there. In a humorous way. Just thinking about
    someone getting all gross and sweaty playing naked volleyball, then
    going into the (nudist) restaurant and sitting their sweaty...um, butt
    on a chair...that I would later sit on. {{{Shudder}}}

    goofy fun

    Bare Naked Lola is the third book in the Lola series by Melissa Bourbon Ramierz. This book is a fun read, with the main character being asked to go under cover this time as a cheerleader. She also finds out that the victim often went to nudist resorts. Lola must face her own issues in order to strip this mystery down to its most basic elements.

    If you enjoy the Stephanie Plum novels, this book will appeal to you.

    What a great read. Lola latest case has her going undercover as a cheerleader. When a clue points her in the direction of a nudist resort, how far will Lola go to get the job done? Well, you'll have to get your own copy to find out. What a great read. This was one fun and sexy drama that I did not want to see end. The mystery kept me guessing but the comedic exploits and the romance, oh the romance had me smiling as the story progressed. With sexy and spitfire Lola on the case, the killer does not stand a chance. With amusing and witty repartee and a lovable cast, this story was muy excelente and the best one ever. I look forward to more exciting adventures with Lola and her friends in this enjoyably entertaining series.

    BARE NAKED LOLA by Melissa Bourbon Ramirez is an interesting mystery/suspense novel. It is Book #3 in (The Lola Cruz Mysteries),but can be read as a stand alone. See, “Living the Vida Lola, Book one,Hasta la Vista, Lola”, Book two,and “The Lola Cruz Christmas Story,A Lola Cruz Novella”.Lola Cruz is a private investigator,smart,sassy,and goes undercover with the Sacramento’s professional basketball team in search of a murder suspect.What she doesn’t expect is a “nudist resort”. For a bundle of giggles and a bunch of smiles read “Bare Naked Lola” you will not be disappointed. Of course with a bit of suspense,mystery,romance,laughs, and a bit of danger how could you go wrong. Received for an honest review from the publisher. Details can be found at Entangled Select,the author’s website and My Book Addiction and More.
