Sophie Katz has just offered a man $12,000 for his services ... Is she desperate or just meshugeneh? Considering the kind of disasters that usually befall the half-black, half-Jewish mystery writer, probably both. Because the last time Sophie saw sexy P.I. Anatoly Darinsky, he practically danced a jig when she waved goodbye; a normal reaction for a man who'd nearly bought the farm trying to protect her from her own foolishness. What are the chances he'd agree to take incriminating pictures of her sister's philandering husband? Or that he'd let her tag along; you know ... for research? But when her brother-in-law turns up dead and her sister becomes the prime suspect, Sophie's priority is finding the real killer. With or without Anatoly's help. Her brother-in-law's secret life yields plenty of suspects, but the San Francisco police aren't taking any of them seriously. So Sophie does what comes naturally to her: she stirs up trouble (to lure the killer out, of course). But if her crazy plan works, will Anatoly be there to protect her this time?

This second book in the series brings Sofie and her Russian love interest, Anatoly, closer together as they try to prove her sister Leah is innocent of murdering her womanizing husband. The two sisters seem as different as night and day. Frankly, even for a light-hearted chick-lit, Leah gets on my nerves a bit and her poor parenting skills seem off-kilter for a woman who coveted being a wife and mother and providing her executive husband with all the material appearances of a perfect life. I think Leah and Mary Anne should be BFFs. Things heat up between Sofie and Anatoly as Sophie's sleuthing gets her into one predicament after another. The story combined the best of an easy read: fun characters, mystery, and romance.

Sophie Katz is back, and this time she's trying to figure out who killed her brother-in-law. Initially it's hard to find anyone, but quickly Bob's double life is revealed. Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately), Sophie has to enlist the help the sexy private eye, Anatoly, because her sister has become the prime suspect.

Sophie is her usual over-the-top self, stumbling across clues and getting herself (and her sister) deeper and deeper into trouble. Author Davis has delivered a nice diversion read for those of us who need some light fun from time to time.

This is a book is hard to put down. The characters are all people that you would love to spend time with (her hairdresser has me in stiches half the time), and Sophie Katz, is the best thing to happen since Gemma Halliday . She is sassy, witty and utterly delightful.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book! If was a bright, funny mystery novel featuring half black-half Jewish mystery writer Sophie Katz. Her wanna be Martha Stewart sister, Leah is accused of the murder of her husband Bob.

But Sophie is convinced of Leah's innocence. She hires the handsome Russian PI Anatoly to help investigate Bob's murder. The two of them uncover facts about Bob's double life and the two of them get closer together as well.

Like I said, this book was fun. I loved the characterizations of the two sisters, Sophie to coffee addict and Leah the wanna be perfect wife whose idols are Martha Stewart and Emily Post. This is chick-lit mystery done right.
