Killer in High Heels (A High Heels Mystery #2)Killer in High Heels by Gemma Halliday
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I've never been to Vegas. All I know about Vegas is what I've seen in movies, and I think Gemma Halliday did a great job of setting up this place I've never been.
Maddie Springer just can't seem to stay out of trouble. As soon as she solved the mystery from the last story, she gets a phone call from her estranged father, only to have him hang up before she can get any information. With the help of her friends, Dana and Marco, Maddie heads to Vegas to find the man she hadn't seen since she was a child, but things are not as she remembered, and Hot Cop, Jack Ramirez, on her trail.
Maddie has no problems getting herself into trouble, despite trying to keep out of it once she gets there (Marco and Dana are terrible influences), luckily she has Jack who always manages to bail her out. I did feel that Jack got REALLY condescending and chauvinistic in this installment. Now that he knows Maddy better, he's still acting like she's a little weak woman.
Felix was a fun addition, and I love the banter he shares with Maddie, and it was nice to uncover a bit more of Maddie's past by finding her father.
