I give Hell On Heels (PJ Santini Series: Book One 1) by Lynne Russell, 5 stars.
PJ used to be a news reporter. Now she’s a PI, but it doesn’t pay all the bills. In order to afford her wonderful living quarters and her obsession with shoes, she does the only thing feasible to her — she goes to ask for her job back at the tv station. She ends up replacing a missing reporter, but there’s one catch — she has to find the missing reporter. That’s fine with her, she can use her PI training to help her. Simple, right? Next thing she knows, she’s in deep over her head. People and forces are at play that she never imagined. But that won’t stop this fiery red-headed Italian. She is determined to get to the bottom of it. On top of everything else, there’s her crazy Sicilian family, a cop who doesn’t want her help, and two hot men she melts for. What can go wrong?
This is a wild and crazy ride! Everything is over the top — her love of good food and good shoes, her family, her men, even the mystery itself. But that’s what makes this book so great! PJ is fun and relatable. The other characters are great too, and I do mean characters in the literal sense. Each one is so different — no bland people in this book. Then there’s the story. Funny, entertaining, surprising, sexy — it has it all. This book is meant to be fun and it highly succeeds. I thoroughly enjoyed it from beginning to end and cannot wait to read the next one.
If you like your mysteries on the fun and crazy side, this book is for you.
