    1. מאדי ספרינגר, הפשניסטית הבלונדינית חוזרת והפעם אחרי 6 שבועות שבהם לא התראת עם הבלש רמירז, היא נוסעת במשימת הצלה לאביה בווגאס.ישנם קטעים משעשעים ביותר בספר במיוחד קטעים שקשורים לשוקר שהחברה של מאדי קונה. בנוסף הספר קולח. אבל העלילה כל כך מופרכת והזויה שזה פשוט מצחיק ומגוחך. נה [...]


    2. WARNING: Spoilers included. Ok, not really sure how I want to rate this one. On one hand, the writing is witty and enjoyable to read. However, the story-line is way beyond far-fetched and I am finding it even harder to like Maddie, the heroine of the series.Let’s start with the good. The book is a light and quick read. The humorous style makes it really fun. The author has a way with words, especially tying in the shoe theme. I particularly like the line when Maddie fears a mobster may fit her [...]


    3. Maddie is back. This time in Vegas with family and friends. Her absentee father finally decides to surface in her life and needs her help to get him out of a jam. And that's not the only surprise he has for her. I don't know what happened to the series. I enjoyed the first one quite a bit. This one, not so much. In fact, if I didn't already order the rest of the books, or had read this one first, I would not be reading the others. There was zero growth from the first book. The characters actuall [...]


    4. Even funnier than the first one! Lots of wacky hijinks, some things that I wasn't expecting and some things I had figured out, but altogether entertaining. I remember looking at this series when browsing for Kindle books and passing on it. You just never know from the small blurbs if they are going to be good or not, but this series is more than worth the reasonable prices on .I'm not a big fan of love triangles, but I rather liked Felix the reporter, probably because he was British and called M [...]


    5. 3.5 for the fun, messed up, light fluffy read.Some of the things that happened in this book were less realistic than the previous one, but hey, the humour that kept popping up made this still a relatively enjoyable read, not to mention all those moments with Ramirez ;)



    6. Like the first book, it's an entertaining, fast read. Like other readers, I'm finding it harder to like the main character, Maddie. She's whiny, stubborn, lies all the time and I'm seriously starting to wonder if she has a tapeworm with the way she eats and doesn't seem to gain anything. The author reminds the reader a few times that Maddie only makes enough at her job to pay her rent and keep herself in ramen noodles and high heels. Then WHY does she go out for expensive coffee shop coffee drin [...]


    7. H/h Ramirez and Maddie This is the 2nd book in the series and I enjoyed it more than the first. The story takes place in Las Vegas but this time Maddie has her possie with her posse with her. Maddie and her crew are trying to help her long lost dad who calls when he needs her help after seeing an article about her in a tabloid. Things move from "are you kidding me" to "off the charts funny" in a matter of pages.If you are looking for a book that is light, fun, but with some intrigue this maybe t [...]


    8. This is the second book in the High Heels series starring Maddie Springer. The first book was very interesting and held my attention, and the second book was even better. I was laughing out loud through the whole book, and literally couldn't put it down. It was a page turner, and I'd recommend it to any person who wants to read a chick-lit, romantic, cozy mystery. I was rooting for Maddie and Ramirez the whole way through. I can't wait to start the 3rd one. It's a fast, fun read for a rainy day, [...]


    9. So I like this book and I don't like it at the same time. Mostly I will continue reading this series because I like the other characters and the story is pretty good. I just don't like the main character, Maddie. She is way too obsessed with her looks. For example, she doesn't end up having sex with her almost boyfriend (even though they were rounding 3rd base) because she couldn't remember if she shaved her legs or what underwear she was wearing. It wasn't going to be "special" enough for her f [...]


    10. just as good as the first it's about 6 weeks after the first book and Ramirez isn't answering her phone calls Dana is trying to make her work off her missing Ramirez binge she'd been on and then she gets a phone call from her long gone dad saying he needed her help to make matters worse she might just have a stalker that followed her from LA to Las Vegas where she plans to hunt down the dad she hasn't seen since she was 3 and of course disobey every request Ramirez makes of her like stay away fr [...]


    11. Eh, well. I thought Maddie was a little dim in the first one, but I put it down to her thinking she was pregnant. But in this one? God, she's an idiot. In many ways, but specifically her scheme near the end? How in the HELL did she not see that coming? And why does she keep showing up in places where club owner guy will see her and connect the dots? And why doesn't he? In addition to that, notes for the author: it's "minutes" and not "minuets," "uzi" and not "oozi," and "Dentyne" and not "Denten [...]




    12. Book two, and we see a return to the life of fashion crazy Maddie as well as the host of secondary characters from the first book. Her mom is still floating around in fantasy land, her best friend Dana is still attracting in hunks and having sex, and absentee beau Ramirez makes an appearance too, although more on that later. Maddie is still scoffing Big Macs and somehow remaining thin enough to fit into designer clothes (pure evil, I tell you!) and there is another murder mystery to solve.The th [...]


    13. Maddie gets a surprise phone message from her dad that she hasn't seen in 20+ years asking for help. At the end of the phone message she hears a gun shot. Worrying about her dad, Maddie, Dana and Marco take a trip to Vegas to try and find her dad and see what kind of help he needs. In Las Vegas, Maddie tracks her dad down, and find a few surprising things about him. Including the fact that he has the mafia looking for him also. With the death of one of his friends, and the disappearance of anoth [...]


    14. What silly silly books we read - not oh how I enjoy these simple easy sassy stilly dramas. Yes the main character is self absorbed, makes dumb decisions and pays way too much attention to what people are wearing. Yes it was silly that her undercover cop kept trying to make out with her when he was supposed to be knee deep in the mobbut above it all was a grand bit of fun and a few good laughs. No great literature in these pages, but escapism and frivolity - you bet!


    15. Once again, I was totally caught up in this seriesd was up till the wee hours to finishwon’t give away the plotlet’s just say, it’s a madcap adventure as Maddie travels to Los Vegas to search for and help a lost relative! Gemma Halliday is an excellent writer. She moves forward from book to book in the series without their being repetitioneping the reader in suspense and anticipation for the next in series!


    16. Good Book well writtenMaddie really knows how to get I to trouble!e! In this book she goes cro. I like this authors writing style, The plot was good and the story fast paced.


    17. Okay first off this is a second book in a series so if you kind of need to read the first one Spying in High Heels. Alright that said, if you choose to read farther down before you read the first book, I will not be held responsible.Halliday comes back with another fun, funny and fashionable murder mystery romance with her second book in her High Heels series Killer in High Heels Shoe Designer Maddie Springer has not seen her father since she was young and he reportedly ran off with a Las Vegas [...]


    18. The story begins with a typical site faced by many. ‘Guy promised to call. Girl waits. Guy doesn’t call. Girl devours cookies, chocolates, and ice cream for comfort. Then Girl resolves to burn all the calories. And then the never-ending battle between a tub of ice cream and 40 pounds dumbbells starts!’LA shoe designer, Maddie, is easing her abstinence-crazy hormones and bouts of anxiousness by Binge Eating. Two reasons brought this on: A) lack of action between the sheets B) (PRIMARILY) Ra [...]


    19. Still a page turning mystery and more of hot Det Jack Ramriez, but this book suffers from using stereotypes as punch lines to jokes that just weren't funny. This is why I rated the book with less stars than the first book in the series.Maddie and Jack are having some relationship troubles, namely that as a detective, Jack will have to go undercover and Maddie won't hear from him in weeks. Maddie needs attention on a regular basis, so not having Jack's full attention is kind of making her into a [...]


    20. What do you do when you love the first book in a trilogy? You instinctively go for the next one, hoping to derive the same thrill and joy out of it that you gained from Part – 1. Your expectations rocket sky high, since you trust the author has added a lot more flavour, and spiced up the concoction to your overly salivating reading mind. And then, comes the moment, when you finally pick up the book. If your expectations are met, well and good. If not, go grab a drink, and better luck next time [...]


    21. To read this review and others like it check out my site, ufreviews Once again another murder mystery with Maddie. I really liked the first book in this series, as I said in my earlier review of Spying in High Heels. I was super excited about this book, mainly because I had such a fun ride with the first book, and the authors tone is just so enjoyable to read. I have to say that I am glad to see that the authors tone has remained completely consistent, I love the humor infused through every aspe [...]


    22. i reread this series because some of the newer ones came on sale recently for 99 cent and i bought them.i like this as a candy book meaning it's a fun quick read. the murder mysteries are not that easy to solve with lots of suspects. the amateur detective and crew -Maddie, Dana, & Marco are fabulous and funny. the scary tough guy cop is dangerous and sexy. plus her mom and her mom's best friend are funny as well as insightful (they give ya clues if you look for them.) what i don't like is ho [...]

    25. The HIGH HEELS MYSTERY series is one I stumbled upon in my effort to read more free and cheap e-books on . Now, the first one was a bit goofy and silly, but cute enough -- so I gave #2 a shot. I think the whole airhead shoe-obsessed detective who miraculously gets herself out of every possible dangerous situation in life is probably a bit too out there for me in this novel.The story starts with Maddie receiving a message on her answering machine from her father, who abandoned the family years ba [...]

    27. Shoe-a-holic Maddie Springer is back and things are apparently not going as well as the ending to the last book would lead you to believe She's doing her best to get over it when she gets a frantic message from her dad- not Faux Dad but Real Dad. Seeing how she hasn't spoken to him in twenty something years, it comes as a bit of a surprise. Despite having said she wouldn't call Bad Cop, Jack Ramirez, the sound of a gunshot on the message sends her into a bit of a panic. Since she has no idea wha [...]
