Hell on Heels (PJ Santini Series Book #1) by Lynne Russell – Review by Angela Hayes

Hell On Heels (PJ Santini Series Book 1)Hell On Heels by Lynne Russell
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

 

Hell On Heels is the first book in the PJ Santini Series by Lynne Russell. It is a private eye mystery which drew me in from the beginning. Ms. Russell is a new to me author, and I have enjoyed my first foray into her work. The fast pace, danger, suspense and humour made for an intriguing read.
We meet PJ Santini who is a smart, independent, witty, stubborn, and inquisitive television news reporter who moonlights as a private eye. She loves the chase of a good story and digging up the truth. We follow her on her latest investigation/assignment . And there is also a bit of a love triangle of sorts, which adds to the overall storyline. The characters were all really well crafted, even the secondary characters held their own in this story. There was edge of my seat moments, as well as some funny scenes. I have already jumped into book #2, because I want to know what PJ gets up to next!

Thank you, Ms. Russell!

5 +++ Stars

Oh my goodness I loved this book! I am a sucker for solving a mystery and a leading lady that makes me want to jump into the book and be her friend, a friend that makes me laugh just about every time she opens her mouth LOL

There isn’t one thing I didn’t love about this story, I loved the fast paced suspense that kept me guessing and I sincerely appreciated the “no added fluff”, every word was needed in this story and the flow was perfect. I loved the slight hint of romance throughout and the crazy friends and the family bonds throughout.

This was the perfect book, my favorite genre for sure and as much as I’d love to compare this to another series out there which I love as well, this one stands by itself and I absolutely can not wait for more and know that PJ Santini will be on my favorite character list and I hope there are many more books to come in this series.

I’m kind of star struck as I remember well watching this author on my TV years ago and her experience on CNN made this story that much more believable and fun.

I already can not wait to read this again 🙂

THIS! Oh my God this book is everything I had hoped it would be and more! I must admit first that I am a bit of a fan girl of CNN, have been since I was a little girl because I’m weird like that according to my siblings, so I knew right away who Lynne Russell and instantly fangirled more. I had to have this book asap and I had to know what was on those pages! After all this woman was who I got my 8th grade Civics current events from for Pete’s sake and now she writes one of my favorite genres!!!?? YES please! And let me tell you this was just perfect! I was rolling with laughter at several different moments and yet there was just the right amount of drama, intrigue, mystery, and suspense as well!

P.J. Santini is one fierce female lead and I LOVED reading her. I am so, so, excited that we will be getting more books with her in the following this one. She really makes this book. Her character is also a TV reporter and I believe that Russell having the first hand experience just truly helped her to make P.J. so truly real and vibrant. She practically jumped out of my kindle at me with her personality and I loved it! For any juicy details other than the synopsis though you’re going to have to grab your own copy and devour it for yourself. I can’t dare to spoil this not one bit! Thank you so much for this amazing read Ms. Russell! I can’t wait for book #2!

This sassy book is a fun, mystery read with a strong female character who is sharp, quick whited, and funny. P.J. Santini is a TV reporter and a self-proclaimed successful P.I. When a sleazy investigative reported named Siggy goes missing, she inherits the job of a lifetime, but first, she needs to find him.
With her crazy Sicilian mother, bleed blue blood father, and two of the hottest men to have ever graced the earth, P.J. is about to find herself in the fight for her life. With the quick-witted banter of P.J., Johnny, and Tango, P.J.’s hilarious internal musings and the details plot setting of Ms Russell, you have a hilarious mystery, crime novel that will leave you guessing, laughing and turning the page.

I loved this book! This is a creative, humorous, suspenseful crime story. It is fast paced, engaging, and I read it in one sitting. The story is well written as well as the characters made the story come to life, even made me laugh out loud a few times. I loved P.J., she is a smart character that knows how to get things done. She is a news reporter and a private eye who is about to take on her first case. What will be harder for her, solving the case or staying alive? This is a must read!

By: Lynne Russell
5 out of 5 stars

The story Hell On Heels (PJ Santini Series: Book One 1) by Lynne Russell is the kind of book that grabs your attention from the very beginning and doesn’t let you go until you have finished the final page. It is fast-paced and will have you turning pages to find out what happens next. I loved reading about the main character of PJ Santini. She is witty, intelligent, independent, and stubborn. She is both a TV news reporter and private eye. She is a woman that once on an assignment is determined to find out the answers and truth of what happened. This story finds her with the assignment to find the missing journalist Gerald “Siggy” Sigmund. Will PJ find out the reason that he has disappeared? Will she find “Siggy?” Read this book to find out. Two other characters that I enjoyed reading about are Johnny Renza and Tango Daly. Johnny is the first boy that PJ ever loved. Tango is her private detective boss. There is an attraction between her and Tango that is steamy and makes the temperature in the room rise. Other characters that you read about include her Sicilian family. There are times when I found myself on the edge of my seat and other times when I was laughing out loud. The story made me feel like I was with PJ on her assignment sorting everything out. This is a book that I would highly recommend reading. It is a wonderful first book in a series and I can’t wait to read more about PJ.
