It was a fun reading. Even though I felt like she was in rush for finishing the last chapter but I enjoyed enough to give her 4. Once in a while that I could finish the book in 10 days.

Alas, little did I know that not only does such a book exits, it's a totally awesome new genre! Poor Samantha Leiffer-the girl just cannot get a break! She moved to New York to be wi If someone had told me a few months ago that there was such a book as chick-lit romantic suspense, I would have said they were crazy. She moved to New York to be with the love of her life, Nate, a man more breathtaking than a god and more charming than a snake.
The only problem was, Nate really was a snake, one who boinked everyone within walking distance of his and Samantha's apartment. And by everyone, I mean everyone-seems old Nate wasn't very discriminating when it came to the male or female status of his conquests. So here's poor Sam, working two jobs-one as a teacher at the Sunny Side nursery school, the other in the box-office of an off-off-off-off-off Broadway theater named the Space-and on Valentine's Day, that day of love and passion, she just so happens to witness a man and woman drop an ice chest into the Hudson River.
That alone might be suspicious, but after all, it's a low point in Sam's life, and she's suspicious by nature. What follows is something that even her mother, Sydney Stark-Leiffer, self-help guru and mostly off-her-rocker publicity hound, wouldn't be able to come up with a quick answer to.
There really was something suspicious in that hastily dumped ice chest-a body, to be exact, and one with it's eyes gouged out, to be even more exact. Suddenly, Sam's life is in more upheaval than her Space coworker who took a three-year vow of silence to save her voice for her upcoming one-woman show. Now a mystery psychopath in mirrored sunglasses is following her around, she's getting heavy-breathing and intimidating phone calls in the middle of the night, and a one-man Hercules show by the name of John Krull is helping Sam in her find-the-bad-guy detective show.
Told in first person, you'll nevertheless feel as if you're walking beside Sam as she comes to terms with everything that's going on in her life-the departure of slimy Nate, the entrance of yummy Krull, the schizophrenia of her mother, the eccentricities of her circle of friends, and not to mention her need to single-handedly bring justice to New York. Alison Gaylin has penned a true winner, and I can't wait for the sequel.
Jan 15, Jenn rated it liked it Shelves: I was very confused at the beginning of this book. The writing style, descriptive narrative was very dark. The cast of characters are a bit "out there" and are a bit hard to connect with.
That said, I was compelled to keep reading. Gaylin provides us with a crime and suspect but with so little information that you feel you have become the main character as you try and find out who is the culprit. The events, suspects, actions keep changing quickly that keep you guessing throughout. The next I was very confused at the beginning of this book.
And when you do, wow, so not what you expected. To top it all off, she ends the book with the beginning of the next. The story just continues. As this was her first novel, I look forward to reading her next one as I'm sure her writing and story telling will only improve and hopefully be another thriller in every sense.

I enjoy reading books that were nominated for awards but didn't win; this was one of those books Edgar nomination. The nomination usually means the book is well written, has something unique and compelling, and is a good choice when faced with a vast array of books in the chosen genre. I'm not sure I would have given this book the nomination. It was fine, but it wasn't compelling.
The crimes were darker than the writing; the book was fluffier than it should have been for its topic. It flirted I enjoy reading books that were nominated for awards but didn't win; this was one of those books Edgar nomination. It flirted too close to the "chick lit" edge for me. That being said, it was easy to pick up and put down during several short flights, and the theater setting with its theatrical cast of characters was not the English countryside!

I was looking through the shelfs and this book caught my eyes. The book cover was interesting and the description wasn't bad either. I decided to buy the book, and somehow I never got to read the book. It stayed with me for a year unread. Recently I decided to read the unread books in my bookshelf. I wasn't hooked at first, but then BOOM. I couldn't drop the books out of my hands, I was hooked. The book is very much interesting. Not the style I I was in a bookstore looking for a good book to read.
Not the style I usually read, but very easily written and you can most definitely tell the author is a New-Yorker. I'm still not sure though , but really think so. The events are VERY interesting. Made me laugh in times where I really couldn't laugh. Totally freaked me out though and poor little kids Jan 02, Vivisection rated it liked it Shelves: I made a rookie mistake.
I read two books by the same author back to back-two different series no less. I like that Gaylin has strong, well developed characters. Even though I found Samantha to be a bit of a ninny, I'd totally bogart Yale for a best gay. What I found annoying: Spunky heroine with kooky male sidekick. Plus the hunky cop as love interest.
