Fun, light hearted series not meant to be taken seriously. The heroine is quite materialistic and self absorbed, with a likeable side to her. The writing is snappy, intelligent and witty, the book moves right along for an entertaining, laugh out loud read. Fairly clean with many references to sex, nothing graphic, no swearing or violence.

Murder strikes Holt's Department Store once again and purse-loving Haley Randolph finds herself in the hot seat again! This is a quick romp of a mystery, with Haley questioning her relationship with Ty Cameron, Holt heir and golden boy, going to school and trying to solve more than one mystery. More questions arise at the end of the story, leading us to hope there's another title in the works. I also enjoyed that somewhat self-involved Haley has time for some of her new Holt friends in addition to the splashy world her mother raised her in.

I prefered the first book better. Dont get me wrong I did enjoy the murder mystery. I just have trouble believing anyone gets themselvers in so much trouble. I am sure I will check out book 3 just because its a cute light read.

First, I can promise that I'd be staring at a waitress that has on sunglasses. And, if I was already staring at her, I'm sure I'd notice that she had on a wig. Even a good one - which this one probably wasn't because according to Haley the stuff is way below her. Second, the book is told in first person & I hated it! Haley says - I hate __ but it's __ fault. Grrr. Or she says, I did this, well, not really. It's really quite annoying. Third, she's really a bit slow. I mean it. She's a complete ditz - so how did she solve that first murder? Yeah, I don't think so. It wasn't a terrible book, but for me, this is not something enjoyable at this point in my life... maybe as a pre-teen I would have enjoyed it...

She comes from a life of wealth and privilege and would do just about anything to buy a $2,000 Judith Leiber handbag. She is on very good terms with her parents and is a fashionista who would love to have stylish designer brands in clothing and jewelry. Instead twentyish Haley Randolph works for minimum wage at Holt's Department Store while attending classes at the local college. Her goal is to own a wardrobe she could be proud of.----------- Her sort of boyfriend is store owner Ty Cameron who stands her up at times as he seems always to be busy working. At the employee's luncheon and fashion show advertising the store's new attire, Haley notices one of the models is sick. Haley volunteers to replace her and shortly after a fashion model who was Ty's ex girlfriend Claudia Gray is found dead. The police determine the victim was poisoned. Haley vows to find the killer as her mom's catering is the source and since she went missing for a time, she knows she is a suspect. ----------- This book is a hoot with the heroine's amusing asides re fashion and her efforts to obtain a hand bag that is the real thing that leads her into all sorts of trouble including with the police. Ironically in spite of her quest, Haley is not a vacuous beauty as she is clearly is intelligent though fixated somewhat. She uses her brains to investigate the homicide as she knows she is at the top of the suspect list. Fans will enjoy her escapdes as she is as obstinate to obtain the designer handbag as she is to obtain the killer's identity.--------- Harriet Klausner
