Kurzbeschreibung

New York Times, USA Today, and #1 Kindle Bestselling series!

"Gemma Halliday's Maddie Springer is like the west coast version of Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum—only more stylish!"
- LG Book Club

Baguettes, bodies, and haute couture galore! Shoe designer turned amateur sleuth, Maddie Springer, is at it again, this time in fabulously fashionable Paris. When Europe's designer de jour, Jean Luc LeCroix, invites Maddie to show her creations at Paris Fashion Week, Maddie's sure she's died and gone to heaven. That is until Jean Luc's top model is found dead on the runway, stabbed with a familiar stiletto heel. Sure someone is trying to frame her, Maddie enlists the help of her friends, including the sexy Detective Jack Ramirez, to uncover a daring jewel heist, a devious blackmailer, and even a few skeletons lurking in the closets of those closest to her. But as the evidence mounts, Maddie becomes the prime suspect and Ramirez is stuck between a badge and a cute blonde with a tendency for trouble. Will he stand by her as she attempts to track down an international killer, or will this be the case that finally comes between them? One thing's for sure, if Maddie doesn't uncover the real killer soon, she may be saying her final adieu.

This is the 4th book in the 'Maddie Springer' series. Maddie is a shoe designer who always seems to end up in the middle of a crime. It could be murder or fraud but she always manages to get pulled into the investigation.

In this newest novel Maddie is off to Paris for Fashion Week. Her shoes will be on show for everyone to see and she couldn't be any more excited. However the trouble starts before she even gets on the plane.

Murder, Jewel thieves and kidnapping. This is a great cosy mystery with a fun main character and some quirky friends and family. Add a love triangle and this has enough to keep you reading to the end. The end that will leave you wanting more.

Even if fashion isn't your thing this is a great read. Gemma Halliday is a great writer and I can't wait for more!

Dieser Band ist wieder sehr witzig, gut recherchiert, detailliert und spannend. Die Autorin kennt sich offensichtlich in der Szene aus und plaudert aus dem Nähkästchen, mit viel Witz und Charme. Habe mich bestens amüsiert. Der Plot ist realistisch und glaubhaft, schön komplex, mit logischem Ende. Dass man schon eine Ahnung hat, wer denn dahinter stecken könnte, stört überhaupt nicht. Weiter so!

3.0 von 5 Sternen Not as good as the others 28. März 2008
Von S. Cochran - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I have read and enjoyed the previous books in this series, but this one was a complete letdown. The plot was just not the least bit plausible. Of all the people in LA who could have accidentally hit Maddie, it was her mother's psychic friend? Why couldn't it have been a random stranger? It did nothing for the plot for it to have been Mrs. R. And I agree with the reviewer who said the whole booted foot did nothing for the plot at all. And I just think it was ridiculous to have the whole gang of whacky characters go to Paris. Why Paris? Just so the Eiffel Tower could get worked into the story? And why force this love triangle with Ramirez and Felix? And it does seem forced and makes Maddie look terribly shallow emotionally. Is Ms. Halliday trying to make Maddie be like Stephanie Plum with her Morelli/Ranger triangle (which by the way is getting old)?
And when Maddie ditched Ramirez in her hotel room after he flew to Paris for her, I almost threw the book across the room. I put it down and didn't pick it up for a week. I didn't enjoy this one like I did the others. The others I read in a day, and I had to make myself finish this one.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Maddie Gets the Boot 16. März 2008
Von wordwitch - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
O.K. I read two of Gemma Halliday's previous books. Frankly, I am not as impressed with Maddie as the rest of you seem to be. I do like comedy, and I do love a well-written, at least nominally well-researched book. Unfortunately, although this book is kind of funny, Maddie is more irritating and unbelievable than anything else. Gemma Halliday makes Ramirez more a lustful "father" figure to Maddie than a committed, in love and loving contemporary. He spends his time giving Maddie more "spankings" figurately speaking, than communicating with her outside of bed. She is the recalcitrant child to his finger shaking, teeth grinding parent, and this is not attractive to me in any couple.

The plot of this story should have resulted in a much better book, in my opinion, but we are working with an author who is mimicing the Desilu phenom, only this is a dizzy blonde instead of a dizzy redhead.Perhaps these books will translate better on television, where (I hope) better writers will make a better and more believable story.

For instance, Maddie was hit by Mrs.Rosenblatt. Why? How does this accident do anything for the book? Maddie could have taken her mother and Mrs. R with her to Paris without the accident and the resulting boot. How did the boot impact the story? It didn't really. She did everything she wanted to do, got not sympathy from Ramirez, in fact, there was never a scene where Ramirez was even informed of Maddie's accident, nor did he show up at the hospital like any other boyfriend would have. All of the good juicy emotional points where Gemma Halliday could convince me that Ramirez is actually in love, not just in lust, with Maddie are overlooked. Maybe this author doesn't know what true romance or true love really is, or at least what it should look and feel like. Maddie and Ramirez are on the same planet, sometimes in the same bed, but speak two different languages, and there is no Maddie to Ramirez dictionary for translation.

Not only that, but the scene (spoiler, but I don't care) leading up to the part where Maddie is caught kissing Felix by Ramirez was so pitifully unrealistic it got on my nerves. Maddie appears to be more a robot who is given emotions and told to act on the author's whim, rather than a person who feels any depth of emotion for anyone other than her mother. (And even that was suspect in this book when Maddie's mother and Mrs. Rosenblatt went missing for two days and Maddie just pretty much flipped them both off.) Back to Felix. So he is a good kisser. Okay. So what? She called Felix pond scum through every other book, but he's a good kisser, so now, Ramirez is what, pond scum? Any woman this light in the attic, and so emotionally stupid, couldn't find a stiletto in a heel factory.

Now, for the ending. I won't spoil this one, but, get real! After all that Maddie put Ramirez through, Ms. Halliday, Ramirez would have to be jacked up on drugs to do what he did. This is a pretty good example of an author manufacturing a plot point to fit the book, rather than the character. Get a new editor, please.

I like the idea of what Maddie could be, more than the reality of who she becomes under this author's pen. Sorry, Ms. Halliday.

I fell in love with the first book and continued on all the rest! This series was great and full of coincidences. I felt like poor Maddie was always sticking her stilettos into something or someplace where it shouldn't be. I had to keep turning the page to find out what Jack would do to her.

I'm so glad that this series was written. All the books in this story were great.

3.0 von 5 Sternen It's Okay 30. Juli 2013
Von RaksGato - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Just a note -- there is a spoiler in this review.

Finished this last evening (12/29). If you've followed my reviews of this series, you'll notice I've downgraded my rating on this one. It's not because it isn't well plotted; it's not because it isn't filled with lots of action, crazy people doing crazy things, mayhem and murder -- it has all those things. It's just getting too predictable: Maddie gets into trouble -- often of her own making; Maddie involves her best friend, Dana, her Mom and Mrs. Rosenblatt, even the obviously-smitten-with-her tabloid writer, Felix -- everyone but the one person who could probably be helpful, her supposed boyfriend, Jack. But Jack jumps to the rescue anyway -- all the time complaining and expecting Maddie to change her stripes and actually do something reasonable, as one would expect an adult to do.

The main character, fashionista Maddie, is likeable, funny -- and a complete flake. I mean, how many people go to meet an unknown person at the Eiffel Tower for a supposedly romantic rendevous, doesn't know which of two men it could be (and it could be someone else couldn't it), doesn't know which one she hopes it is, and then accepts that person's proposal (even though he just described her actions to the French Police as 'hairbrained')? Come on. It's bad enough this person goes to face down people who are on her own list of murder suspects without backup; it's bad enough she manages to involve her friends and family in life-threatening situations; it's bad enough that she completely ignores Jack's pleading to let professionals handle the investigation and plunges ahead instead of putting her efforts into salvaging her professional reputation; it's bad enough she's basically living with one guy while she has strong though un-admitted feelings for another (and what is the purpose of that second guy if she's getting married to the other one by the sixth book?). I'd have thought she might want to spend a bit more time creating smashing new shoes (the old ones being confiscated by the French Police) in order to salvage her first Paris Fashion Week opportunity. I mean she is a shoe designer -- not a professional p.i.; even Stephanie Plum at least has a job in a similar field when she goes investigating while completely unprepared and most of her situations revolve around trying to do her job! I'd have thought she might sort out her feelings for the two men in her life before agreeing to marry one of them. At the very least, I might expect that as the series progresses that her ability to handle some of these situations would improve.

I'll admit that I immediately starting thumbing through the books coming up in order to see if there was any indication that a) she doesn't go through with marrying one man when she has feelings for another, b) grows up in any way or c) at least stops putting everyone else in her life at risk when she runs off on her 'hairbrained' quests. Waste of time evidently.

I suppose that's supposed to be part of her charm, and maybe it is. Personally she's beginning to bug me. Unfortunately, I've already purchased the remaining books in the series. Thank goodness they are Kindle editions and I can just remove them from the carousel if I decide I can't take anymore.

So why do I continue to like Stephanie Plum (who also seems to have some libido issues) while I'm growing less and less fond of Maddie? I'm not sure. I've been asking myself that all day. Maybe it has to do with the fact that Stephanie at least admits she's conflicted in her feelings for the two men in her life -- and both of them are likable. Maddie seems to think it's not important to recognize those conflicted feelings, and one of her choices has for the last couple of books, seemed less and less appealing while the other seems more and more appealing. Can you guess which one she chooses? You might be surprised.

One reviewer of this book said she threw her book across the room because of the ending. I had similar feelings about it. Yeah, here's a good ending. Choose a life mate when just seconds before he walked in you still didn't know who you wanted to show up. Desperate much?

5.0 von 5 Sternen Good old fashioned High Heeled fun!! 14. April 2013
Von Danielle - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Maddie Springer is at it again, this time in Paris - the most romantic city in the world and the fashion capital! Add a broken leg, dead models stabbed in the jugular with one of HER designed high heels, her quirky jealous bestie Dana, a weird romatic vibe from Tabloid Boy Felix and her hottie boyfriend LAPD Detective Jack Ramirez and Maddie's trip to the fashion capital of the world isn't all it cracked up to be - and all she wants is to get a glimpse of the Eiffle Tower!

When a fiesty model turns up dead on the runway with one of Maddie's own design heels protruding from her neck all eyes are on her. With the paparazzi dubbing her 'The Couture Killer' Maddie must get to the truth before the show so her shoes can be seen by all of the worlds most important fashionistas. Throw in a complicated relationship with a Tabloid reported who won't take no for an answer, the police not believing her and everyone watching her for all the wrong reasons and Maddie is at her witts end. Can she catch the real murderer in time or will she be forever known as 'The Corture Killer'??

Just another fabulous additon to Gemma Halliday's Maddie Springer High Heels Mysteries. And I for one am a dedicated and loyal Maddie fan!!!
