Beschreibung bei Amazon In her teenage years famous novelist Gemma Halliday was dreaming of becoming either a rock star or Marilyn Monroe. At different points of her life she was taking part in movies, imported teddy bears, worked as a department store administrator, a preschool teacher, spend some time as a temporary-tattoo artist, and even a number psychic.
Gemma really had a hard time finding something that is interesting to her, until a happy coincidence made her read a romance book she got for free from some promotion. After a bit of though she really decided to give a try and become a romance writer herself. The author admits that she is finding inspiration everywhere in her daily life. Gemma claims that many of the characters in her books are carrying many exaggerated traits of her family, friends and even ex-boyfriends, who should probably avoid reading her books as the author jokes.
Also many of the dialogues and actions in her books were inspired by random events and things Gemma heard in the grocery store, on the radio, at Starbucks. Gemma Halliday currently lives in the San Francisco bay area with her boyfriend and fellow vampire novels writer Jackson Stein with whom she has three children.
Her favorite hobbies are watching reality TV shows, eating pizza, and shoe shopping. As you can imagine from her books Gemma is mad about fashion in general. The main character is a female called Maddie Springer and she is a shoe designer with a life built around fashion.
Maddie is eager to find him for two crucial reasons — she wants to prove he is innocent, but more importantly her period is late and he might be a father of her child soon.
As you can expect from a mystery novel soon the first body appears. He tries to convince Maggie and Dana to let him handle the whole situation and stay home until he solves the case.
As you could expect, this does not happen and the girls discover some important clues that could help them find the murderer. Two long blond hairs and the imprint of a stiletto heel raise their suspicions and lead to the idea that the killer is actually a woman. Everything ends in a dramatic fashion which should surely satisfy all the chick lit and mystery fans out there.
The novel was very successful among the public and announced the arrival of Gemma Halliday to the world of romance and mystery novels with a bang.
We again meet Maddie who is trying to find her father this time. The last thing she knows about him is that he went to Las Vegas with a showgirl named Lola.
When daddy leaves a cry for help to her answering machine that ends with a loud bang, Maddie decides it is time to find him.
She calls her loyal friend Dana Dashel who is always ready for a new adventure and both go to Sin City in order to investigate. The trio rushes in the middle of an exciting adventure covered in blood and mystery. The gang needs to stop him somehow with odds hardly on their side until the exciting finale.
