Overview

Getting framed has never been a good look.

Fashionista paralegal Finley Anderson Tanner’s hands are fuller than a coupon-clipping soccer mom’s at a BOGO sale. She’s in a fierce eBay bidding war to buy parts for her DIY Rolex, she’s finally taking on some criminal cases at work, and she’s torn between two drop-dead gorgeous men—her ultra-responsible boss Tony Caprelli and badboy private eye Liam McGarrity. Just when she thinks life is out of curveballs, Liam shows up at her house with a bullet wound—and a shocking confession.

When Liam was a cop, he was framed for shooting a teenage boy in a drug bust. Now the same gun used to shoot the kid has resurfaced at the homicide scene of his ex-partner. On the run from the police, Liam needs Finley’s help to clear his name. How can she say no to the man who always bails her out of trouble—even if it means incurring Tony’s wrath when he learns she’s aiding and abetting a fugitive? But the murderer is clever, and if Finley’s not careful, she’s going to shop till she drops . . . dead.

Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
The third in Pollero's Finley Anderson Tanner mystery series has Finley finding love, bargains and bullets flying her way. A paralegal at a swanky Palm Beach law firm, Finley has finally moved from estates to criminal law, where all the action is. But it may prove to be a bit more action than she envisioned. Late one night, Liam McGarrity, the law firm's sexy PI, knocks on her door with a bullet wound in his side and his dishy ex-wife holding him up. Liam was set up: Called to his ex-partner's house (Liam used to be a police officer before he had to resign in disgrace under suspicious circumstances), Liam arrives to find José dead, someone shooting at him and his old police-issue gun on the floor. What unravels is a plot that implicates drug lords, the police's gang unit and maybe even the district attorney. Meanwhile, things heat up between Finley and Liam, but Finley can't get over the constant presence of his ex-wife, Ashley. And not to be forgotten is her boss, Tony, a kind widower with a teenage daughter, who may be a better fit than sexy, dangerous Liam. Pollero delivers a by-the-numbers procedural mixed with the conventions of the chick-lit universe. The novel's title, far from referencing the plot, describes Finley's pastime of trolling eBay for designer duds (in between shoot-em-up excitement, Finley keeps an eye on her bid for a diamond Rolex bevel). When getting dressed, to visit a gang leader in prison, say, we are treated to a quick rundown of her designer choices. These details feel thrown together and hardly distract from a mystery that is easily solved. Finley is a likable character: a little lazy, a little vain, a little conflicted about the kind of man she wants; now if only she had a better mystery to solve. An uneven mystery fails a charming, amateur detective.

    Good read

    I just finished Bargaing Hunting, the lastest book in the series. I liked reading all the tales of Finley, however the authur left much to be desired, for starters there were a lot of spelling/grammatical errors. And if you read all the books you find a lot of repetiton, literally verbatim from other books, so much so that I skipped pages throughout this book and others. Perhaps she did that in case a reader did not start with the first book but it seems unfair to those of us who read the series in order. Also, some issues and situations were left unresolved or completely predictable. As a paralegal I liked the books overall as they are very light reads, if you have time you can finish in a day or two. I would recommend with caution, do not expect too much.

    Wonderful!

    I was looking for a new author similar to Janet Evanovich and I wasn't at all disappointed with Rhonda Pollero. I highly recommend her books.
