This story was okay, but not that great. I prefer suspense in a story and guesswork -- all seemed to be missing in this work. It was okay, but I recommend checking out the book from the library to decide if you want your own copy.

Reviewed By: Emily Holcombe Fleeced is not I book I would recommend to anyone. It is about a girl named Regan Reilly and she is a detective who is searching for lost diamonds in a hotel. The book just dragged on and on and finally got to the end! I think there was too much information that didn't need to be in there! Carol Higgins Clark could have made it a good book if it didn't drag on so much.

I wish I had read all of the other reviews before I delved into this one. I've never read Carol Higgins Clark before and don't plan to read her books again. Towels and sheep were the main mysteries in this book? Come on! Something stronger should have been used.

It got straight to the point, simple yet fulfilling. I bought it in bargain because I wanted something to pour over on a boring trip and it totally satisfied me. I am buying and renting more of Carol and Mary's books all the time. Carol, I am your fan.

This was the first book I read by her and it is definitely for a teenaged reader. Also, there are way too many characters in and out of the chapters.

...so you don't waste any hard-earned money on it. If Carol Higgins Clark used a pen name she would very quickly find herself selling shoes at Bloomingdales. Perhaps her style of writing would appeal more to a younger crowd.

I have read her other books, including the one she co-wrote with her mother but this book was horrible, boring and it was the type you keep thinking this has to get better. It did not.

Carol had a good story, but I thought some of the characters names were ridiculous! I knew who the culprit was halfway through the book. This book seemed to lack Carol's usual style of good detective writing. On the plus side, I would like to see more 'together time' between Jack and Regan. For those of you who want to take a chance on this book, wait for the paperback so you won't blow as much money.

Carol Higgins Clark gives authentic voice to Regan Reilly, an intelligent, quick, young woman with a penchant for solving crimes. Regan is in the Big Apple for a crime conference put together by her celebrity author mother when she is contacted by a friend, Thomas Pilsner, who desperately needs help. Pilsner is president of the Settler's Club on Gramercy Park. Two members of the club who had promised to salvage the failing club with healthy monetary gifts are found dead. Regan to the rescue. She casts her inquiring eyes on other tenants in the building, such as Lydia Sevatura who runs a dating service from her apartment, and her butler, Maldwin Feckles who's a bit of an entrepreneur in his own right having just opened a butlering school. Calling on boyfriend and mystery writing mom for help Regan does, of course, solve the mystery. Nonetheless, readers are kept guessing until the last pages. Fleeced, very much like protagonist Regan Reilly, is both urban and urbane - an entertainment spiced with outre characters and dashes of danger.

Los Angeles private investigator Regan Reilly is in New York City for several reasons. She¿s going to visit her parents and also attend the crime convention her mother has put together. She looks forward to seeing her significant other Jack Reilly, the head of the Big Apple¿s Major Case Squad. Unfortunately Megan has little time to visit with anyone because her friend Thomas Pilsner needs her in her official capacity.

Thomas is president of the Setler¿s Club, a place where people who are free thinkers congregate, exchange new ideas and have fun. The club is in decline but two of its¿ members, Nat and Dan are planning to contribute four diamonds worth four million dollars to revitalize the club. Both die before they can give their gift. Thomas wants Megan to find the missing donation before the Setler¿s Club becomes history. Other people are searching for the diamonds including two very dangerous grifters who will use any means at their disposal to get what they want.

The fifth installment in the Megan Reilly mystery series is a humorous private detective novel starring a heroine who keeps the audience hopping with her many exploits. The support cast is filled with quirky eccentric characters that add a vein of humor to the story line. Carol Higgins Clark, like her mother Mary Higgins Clark, is a dynamite storyteller who excels at her craft.
