Thoughts: I had no expectations when I accepted a review copy of this book. I thought the story sounded cute and I do like a good mystery. Well, I have to say that this one just did not make the grade. I thought Haily was a bit of a spoiled brat. She basically showed up for work when she wanted and just wasn't someone I warmed up to. I'm sure a lot of it has to do with the fact that I myself can not understand the need to have a designer bag that costs thousands of dollars. I felt she was absolutely clueless as to what matters in the world and just couldn't buy into the whole, I work retail yet I can still buy these big dollar bags and oh yeah, along the way I solve crimes storyline

Recommend? I truly hesitate to recommend this one to my friends. If this remotely sounds like a book you would to read I would tell you to start at the beginning of the series with Handbags and Homicide. I honestly feel that I needed to begin there to get the background on Hailey and maybe I would have been able to like her.
Thank you to Caitlin for sending me this copy for review. I was not compensated for my review. My thoughts on this book were in no way influenced by the author. They are my personal reflections based solely on MY experience while reading this novel.
