I'm surprised at how much I enjoyed this! Breezy Chick-lit, picture Shopaholic with a murder mystery. Haley is a self-absobed, materialistic, ditzy, 20-something. I thought I would just speed read it, but I found myself laughing out loud, caring about the characters, and enjoying the quick-witted, fast paced writing style. I'm going to read the next book in the series. 5 stars for well written, clean fun. 202 pages, no gore or violence, a few swear words, no graphic sex, just some references and sex talk.

Another hysterical offering in the Haley Randolph Mystery series! Let's be honest.besides Mr. Darcy, women's two favorite things are purses and shoes. So it comes as no surprise when Haley Robinson, who is thousands of feet in the air flying back to her home in LA, comes across an ad for the latest Sinful handbag about to appear on the market that Haley wants nothing more than to pull the escape hatch and get to the store as fast as possible before they're all sold out. Of course, besides the fact that she's high in the sky, she's also unbelievably broke and knows that the Sinful brand is way too high a price for her to own. Haley has left her boyfriend Ty back in Europe. Ty Cameron is part of the family empire that owns Holts Department franchise, and has just opened a new upscale clothing store. Leaving him in Europe, Haley travels back to L.A. sitting by the side of Ty's grandmother Ada, who is literally a hoot and a howl. After they land, through various circumstances, Haley gains possession of Ada's Mercedes and heads into work at Holts in order to pick up some items Ada needs while ducking her boss in order to take a personal shopping day devoted to attaining the Sinful bag. What surprises Haley the most, however, is not the high price tag of the item she craves, but the fact that she finds a dead woman stuck inside Ada's trunk. .There goes the shopping day. Soon Haley is once again embroiled in a mystery that points directly to her as being the guilty party. Tiffany, the victim, is a woman who left behind a lucrative life and stable career and appeared in LA to become part of the Holts' workforce. But to end up in a trunk, and have a "link" to a man who supposedly got into a traffic accident and burned to death in his car, is as far out of a mystery as Haley can imagine. With the FBI on her tail, and an ex-boyfriend who is clearly up to some kind of espionage, the paths become many and the amount of suspects grow. All the beloved characters are back including some new ones. Ben, the intrepid reporter who knows there's something more to this than meets the eye; Shuman, the hot and spicy detective who Haley would love to actually be "cuffed" by; Kirk Keegan, an ex-coworker of Haley's who wants to exact revenge; and, an old Southern family who arrive on the scene to take their Tiffany home. Absolutely hysterical describes this story, especially the contest that's going on inside the department store where Haley has to get an A-plus in her customer service and impress a secret shopper in order for the staff to get a big prize. The mystery won't be solved until the very end, readers! Another home run for Dorothy Howell!

Euphoric, Los Angeles-based fashionista Haley Randolph spent two weeks in Europe with her boyfriend Ty Cameron, owner of the Holt's Department Store chain. She goes back home where Ty's grandmother Ada lends her a Mercedes, which she will leave in her employee parking lot. When she opens the trunk, she finds the corpse of Tiffany Markham, whom she hated. The police followed by the FBI question Haley showing her a picture of Kirk Keegan who she does not recognize. Haley is more interested in obtaining a Sinful handbag that is selling out. When Kirk visits her in a Starbucks, he angrily claims she ruined his life and hr intends to reciprocate beginning with her boyfriend. She realizes she did see him in the parking lot when she opened the trunk but he looks nothing like the picture law enforcement showed her. Sister-in-law Virginia is kidnapped while looking for her and her ex-boyfriend Doug accuses her of stalking him. .Other incidents occur that intrude on Haley getting her handbag so she decides to stalk her stalker. The latest "bag lady" amateur sleuth (see Purses And Poison and Handbags And Homicides) is an enjoyable amateur sleuth mystery as Haley with her somewhat one icon baggy brain provides a wonderful first person investigation. Her motive is to get everyone off her back so she can purchase the Sinful bag. Although her whining can be numbing when overdone, with a crazy cast to accentuate the case, her clueless mind makes for a fun lighthearted mystery. Harriet Klausner
