Spying in High Heels by Gemma Halliday

Spying in High Heels  reminded me of the Stephanie Plum Series, it has quirky characters, an inquisitive protagonist and a hunky cop. I enjoyed the L.A. setting as I lived there for many years and enjoyed picturing places that I hadn't seen for ages as Maddie drives around the Los Angeles area looking for suspects. Gemma Halliday writes with a fast pace humorous style and keeps the reader engaged. It was a fun mystery read and the book is currently free for Kindle.
L.A. shoe designer, Maddie Springer, lives her life by three rules: Fashion. Fashion. Fashion. But when she stumbles upon the work of a brutal killer, her life takes an unexpected turn from Manolos to murder. And things only get worse when her boyfriend disappears - along with $20 million in embezzled funds - and her every move is suddenly under scrutiny by the LAPD's sexiest cop. With the help of her post-menopausal bridezilla of a mother, a 300 pound psychic and one seriously oversexed best friend, Maddie finds herself stepping out of her stilettos and onto the trail of a murderer. But can she catch a killer before the killer catches up to her...

That sounds fun! What a mixture of personalities.

Sounds like a very "sex in the city" type of heroine.
