    5. What a treat to discover a fun, new-to-me series seven years after its kickoff! No long wait, and I can just dive immediately into the follow-up.Molly Forrester, advice columnist for Zeitgeist magazine, is a welcome addition to my list of aspiring, savvy, hard-working women thrust into the midst of a crime (or three) who work their way through the events, peoples' reactions to said events, and then come up with a resolution. Only in Molly's case, she's got two great friends who aid and abet her, [...]

    6. Molly Forrerster is working for a NYC magazine as an advice columnist but she has higher journalistic aspirations. When she and a friend literally stumble over the murdered body of a coworker, Molly hopes to solve the crime and write the article that will launch her career.When I first started this book, I was not really enjoying it. I put it aside to read something else. I am so glad I went back to it. This is a very funny and entertaining chick lit mystery. Molly and her friends are sort of Se [...]

    7. I sought out this mystery series on the recommendation of Mindy Kalling's Stuff I've Bought That I Love blog and, on the whole, I am not disappointed that I did. I guessed the killer pretty early on, simply from her inexplicable prominence, but I didn't figure out all the why's of the case until Molly herself did. None of the characters were as fully developed as I would have liked, but hopefully that changes as the series goes on, and I enjoy them in their essentials. And, of course, I am a suc [...]

    8. In Sheryl Anderson's Killer Heels, the first installment in the Molly Forrester mystery series, this mystery has it all--romance, humor, and plenty of intrigue. Molly was a columnist for Zeitgeist magazine, when she wanted to get away from it all and become a real journalist. As she discovered the dead body of a colleague, that's when she investigated the murder and met the handsome Kyle Edwards, a police detective for the NYPD. As they dug into Teddy Reynolds's life, she suspected a couple of p [...]

    9. Molly had two best friends. She worked as the Dear Abby of a ladies magazine. Out for drinks one night she was explaining that the magazine that she worked for had just purchased a horrible piece of art. Cassady was very curious and begged Molly to show it to her. They went to the magazine and before Molly could turn on the lights for the "ta da" effect, she stumbled over something and felt her shoes getting soaked. A dead body of a colleague is on the floor and the mystery begins.The book was l [...]

    10. It's good for what it is: A light murder-mystery. (It really deserves 1.5 stars, but that's not an option.) The book jacket gives away a key plot point, however, so the suspense isn't as high as it could have been.The brand-name dropping and the pop-culture references only serve to make the book feel dated.The protagonist's job as an advice columnist is a device for inner monologue, which gets tedious the third time it's used. And the broadly drawn characterizations of a lawyer and an event plan [...]

    11. I'm obsessed with comedy murder mystery books and this one was no exception. As a journalist, I particularly liked that this one was set in magazine land, and could totally relate to the lead well, except the bit where she trips over a dead body at the office right at the start.Can't say that's ever happened to me before! A really fun first book that had me super keen for subsequent novels in the series.

    12. This is the first mystery book I've read in a while, and definitely the first of its kind. I'm not disappointed at all. Definitely going to dive into the rest of series ASAP. The only reason I give it 4 stars instead of 5 is because at a certain point I was able to figure out who the murderer was, and I would have liked to be on the edge of my seat until the last page. Still a great book, though, and perfect to take a break in between some of the more intense series that are out there.

    13. I saw it on a display table when I walked into the library. On the cover were the New York City skyline and a pair of fuchsia stilettos. I know I shouldn't judge a book by its cover but I couldn't help it. It was about a 29ish girl who tried to solve a murder on her own and get to the bottom of the scandal. It was a fun light read 13 an easy way to start the New Year 13 but nothing to run out and get right now.

    14. This wasn't the greatest mystery but I will admit I was guessing on who it was between three suspects I had in mind. This story didn't evoke any emotions from me but it was entertaining nevertheless. The heroine, Molly Forrester, was an amateur sleuth who didn't really help solve anything in my opinion. Overall, it wasn't bad but if you want to read something similar in the mystery genre, I suggest the Psychic Eye series by Victoria Laurie. 3/5 stars.

    15. Mindy Kaling (Kelly Kapur on the Office) recommended this murder mystery/Sex & the City mash-up on her blog as a fun breezy summer read. Carrie Bradshaw-esque advice columnist solves a murder with assistance of Charlotte & Samantha/Miranda-esque friends, hooks up with detective with good bone structure. A very mild read, with not an extraordinary amount to offer by way of suspense, sex, wit, or insight into fashion.

    16. Found this at the library. I was looking for something fun to read. The quote on the front mentions Stephanie Plum so I decided to give the book a try. Too much Sex in the City feel and not enough Stephanie Plum for my taste but I'm only on page 100. I will hold judgement until the end.Its offical, not enough Stephanie Plum (no cars exploded). I was really hoping to laugh out loud but I was only slightly amused.

    17. No spoiler alert here, I wouldn't want to take the fun out of the book for you. Great, engaging read about a murder/mystery in New York City. Three gorgeous yet goofy gals try to get ahead of the detectives and solve the crime first. It's kind of "Sex In The City" twisted with "NYPD Blue".Have fun!

    18. I found this one on the shelf at the library, actually my 3 year old picked it because of the cover I think. I really like her style. I enjoy reading this book, almost done. I feel like I am sitting next to "Molly" and she is telling me the story. Anyway fun read and I think I will look for more of her books. Clean murder mystery.

    19. About what one would expect from this type of book: however, I was impressed by a surprising level of emotion that was present. The "best girl-friends" cliche, as always, was incredibly irritating though; maybe I just haven't made the right friends but this seems so unrealistic.

    20. Cute little girly read. Best thing about it is some of the great quips. Did not like the relationship between the friends which seemed more adversarial. Obviously modeled after Sex in the City but lacked the depth of friendship and compelling relationships.

    21. Light, fluffy read. Just what I need between non-fiction or heavier, more intense fiction. This author cracks me up. She's really good at what she does: provides escapism, doesn't take herself too seriously, keeps it fast paced & leaves you smiling. I'll read anything she writes.

    22. Book #8 read in 2006This was a very entertaining book. The plot was a little slow moving, and there were very little clues to the murderer. However, I liked it enough to read the next in the series.

    23. Anderson scores a triple with this debut novel. The plot's good and so are the characters--especially Molly. However, I found myself skimming entire paragraphs that were loaded with excess. This cozy mystery is sure to please regardless.

    24. Mildly amusing. The mystery wasn't all that mysterious and I found myself speed reading through it just to get it over with. The writing was not very engaging. I won't be reading the other books in the series.

    25. Got this from the library, thankfully, because I barely made it through five pages. Didn't click with the heroine, didn't care, just found her tiresome. Granted, I could go back and give it another shot but I really don't want to.

    26. I love this series and was very disappointed to see it end. 4.5 stars.Full review: jennoklikes/post/772436

    27. Maybe I just didn't pick a good time to read this book but I got bored and ended up just reading the first 60 pages and the last 2 chapters.

    28. It was good, but not great. I was hoping for funnier. Still, it was enjoyable and I will consider reading the next one.
