Chicklit Club



Stilettos and Scoundrels - Laina Turner (2010)


Are you a fan of Stephanie Plum and love books about females who do detective work but get into mischief along the way? Then you may want to check out the Presley Thurman Mysteries series. In this first book, Presley's working for a HR company in Chicago, until she loses her job thanks to her sleazy boss. Now jobless and needing money, Presley - through her best friend Trevor - gets a job writing for his newspaper and her first piece is about the new US Senator who is currently in her hometown. Presley travels back home to interview the Senator - he later turns up dead and she is the last person to have seen him alive. As the number one murder suspect, Presley must clear her name unless she wants to spend the rest of her life behind bars. And her ex high school boyfriend Cooper just happens to be the head of security for the Senator. Now the pair of them must team up to find out not only who killed the Senator but who is wanting to frame Presley. This romantic suspense story has humorous parts along the way and would suit those looking for a cosy chick lit mystery. (PP)
