Stilettos and Scoundrels

Stilettos & ScoundrelsLaina Turner-Molaski
Contemporary Romance

"Presley looked down at herself, almost afraid by her mother's expression that she was naked and didn't realize it."

Presley Thurman didn't really want to go back to her hometown.  But with her new job on the line, she must face her parents, her disconnected friends, and old exes in order to interview Senator Daniels.  The problem is, Senator Daniels ends up dead and suddenly the sleepy little town she grew up in has more secrets than she can keep track of.  It doesn't help that Cooper Sands, an old high school fling, is intent on not only solving the murder first, but keeping Presley in the dark.  Intent on writing the story of her life, Presley ignores those who would tell her to keep her nose out of it she starts to snoop around.  But perhaps Presley will find more than she bargained for.

DISCLAIMER: Although this book is clean in terms of bedroom scenes, the language is not clean in any sense of the term.  This book would be rated R several times over for the language.  Normally, I would put this book down but I was asked to review this by the author and so I will.

My Opinion: Although the language was coarse this book was a pretty decent read.  I found that the mystery of it did keep me guessing until the very end.  The storyline, however was a little choppy without a lot of character embellishment of anyone but the main character.  All side characters, and thus any and all suspects, are hard to see or understand because we get to know them so little.  The main character was someone I found hard to like.  I can see where there are those that could relate to her, but I certainly couldn't.  I thought she was stubborn and immature.  But she was a good detective and always stayed true to her character.  The romance was a little light, but very enjoyable.  I like Cooper's character a lot.

I received a free copy of this book for review.  No other compensation was given.  The summary and review are 100% my own.
