More About This Book

Overview

It's the new year and puff piece reporter Brandy Alexander has the best of intentions to keep her life safe, sane and simple...but she is having one tough week!

It seems that everyone at her new job at TV station WINN hates her--everyone except for co-worker Tamra Rhineholt. But when their budding friendship is cut short by Tamra's apparent suicide, Brandy suspects foul play and (against the protests of her friends and family) sets out to prove it. Soon Brandy is up to her neck in kidnappers, convicts and conspiracies--all the while battling her growing feelings for sexy mystery man, Nicholas Santiago. Of course the amorous advances of her hunky ex-boyfriend, Detective Robert DiCarlo complicate matters even more. Toss in a visit with her well meaning but overbearing parents, her total denial of her own emotional exhaustion and the free lunches she'd been promised but never quite materialize and you have the recipe for the newest Brandy Alexander mystery!

    SUCH A GREAT STORY!!

    Shelly Fredman is the most fantastic story teller and you can't put this book down! It was such an exciting thrilling story that made you laugh, cry, scream and relieze that she captures the quirks of people so well. Amazing book.

    The story is decently told. The story keeps you interested. What

    The story is decently told. The story keeps you interested. What's the problem.  Hmmm. Hapless young investigator has a cop boyfriend and a wildchild on the side.  Who could this be? Stephanie Plum???  If you have the ability to write a decent story, write your own.

    Fantastic read

    This series has been fantastic to read. I just can't put it down. Holds your interest from the first to the last page. Full of humor, mystery, suspense and a little romance. Shelly Fredman's Brandy Alexander is sassy, witty, smart, compassionate to a fault, determined and highly likeable, as are the rest of the character's in her books. Shelly Fredman's plots are outstanding.

    Evanovich Wannabe

    This was written in the Evanovich style only it doesn't quite work. Brandy Alexander is assigned to fluff pieces for her newspaper until one of her co-workers is murdered. She is put on the case and is trying to juggle two boyfriends and a ditzy mother who has come to visit. Just like in Evanovich the boyfriends are bad guy good guy, both hot and she can't decide which one she wants. It had its good moments but the plot just didn't engage and I found the ending a let down.

    Must Read

    This is the best series I have read in a very long time. I am a Plum fan and these books are far better than the last Plum novels. Brandy is a character everyone can relate too. Ms Fredman's writing is amazing, the characters are so well written I found myself both laughing and crying with them through out the book. I can't wait to read what's next in Brandy's world!

    Brandy Rules!

    Still a Plum fan, but Shelly's writing surpasses anything Janet Evanovich has written in the past couple of years. Shelly Fredman's plots are better written, well thought out, and very entertaining. No mindless slap stick here. In the 3rd book in the No Such Thing As series, Brandy once again finds herself in the middle of trouble and needs Nick and Bobby to help her out. Totally love the comments she blurts out! Trust me, if you love Stephanie Plum like I do, you will also be in love with Brandy. Shelly is working on book 4 at this time. No exact date when it will come out but I am anxiously waiting!!!!! This is a definate must for your collection.

    more, please

    The Brandy Alexander series is definitely one of the best I've ever read. Very often authors have one good book and live off that for the next ten average books ... but not Shelly Fredman, she's an amazing author and keeps up the good work. Reading book 3 was like meeting old friends you can't wait to hear what happened to them while you've been out of town. Her characters grow, the fun isn't overdone and the suspense keeps up until the last page. You laugh, love, suffer and fear with characters you'll fall in love with from page one. I can't wait for the next book to come.

    Picking up where Janet Evanovich leaves off

    This is Shelly's third book in the Brandy Alexander series, and in my opinion, her best yet. I really do like these characters and hope there will be many more adventures for BA ahead. Unfortunately, one has to wait a year for the next to come out, but a small price to pay for a fun read.

    Not such thing anymore as a solo ride.......for the J. Evanovich fans

    The ticket for those who can not wait anymore for the next stephanie plum fix, try Shelly Fredman's 'no such thing as series. I devored the first two brandy Alexander mysteries and could not wait for my next trip to enjoy the third installment. No Such thing as a free lunch finds 'Brandy' up to her neck in two mysteries. one being a five year old murder. The usual cast of wonderfully endearing characters return to support Brandy in her quest for justice. Plenty of Nick and Bobby to satisfy fans who crave a little romance. A must buy book !

    Brandy Alexander is back!

    No Such Thing as a Free Lunch picks up with Brandy Alexander as she starts working, again, as a fluff piece reporter in Philly. As in Fredman¿s first two books, Brandy continues to follow her instincts into places that can only cause her harm. The tension between Brandy and the two men in her life continues to build as she tries to figure out what is happening to her life. This is an excellent mystery with wonderful humor throughout. I highly recommend it.
