Book Review: Going Rogue, Rise and Shine Twenty-Nine (Stephanie Plum, #29) by Janet Evanovich

Going Rogue: Rise and Shine Twenty-Nine (Stephanie Plum, #29) by Janet Evanovich was published on November 1, 2022.  The novel opens with Stephanie Plum arriving at the bonds office on a Monday morning, and office manager Connie Rosolli isn't there.  When Stephanie finally gets into the office, the file room has been tossed.  Then comes the ransom call, which sends Stephanie on the hunt for a mysterious coin that she needs to get Connie released. The Stephanie Plum book series is one that I've come to love and enjoy when I need a light read that will give me some laughs.  Right off the start, this edition has yet again made me think it's now being ghost written because Lula is asking if one of the people bonded out by Vinnie is Joe Morelli's grandmother.  Lula already know who she is, so this is what made me think that it's ghost written.  If the author just wanted to reintroduce Bella, there had to be a better way to do this. With that being said, I absolutely lov

Book Review: A High Heels Haunting (High Heels, #4.5) by Gemma Halliday

While purchasing Peril in High Heels (High Heels, #11) by Gemma Halliday and Kelly Rey, I thought I'd check to see if A High Heels Haunting (High Heels, #4.5) by Gemma Halliday was available for purchase because every time I went to buy it previously, it was never available. I was super excited that I was finally able to buy it.

Since A High Heels Haunting is really a novella, I was able to finish it in one sitting. Although it is technically part of the High Heels book series, Maddie Springer was barely in the book, and I wasn't expecting that, so I was very disappointed. 

It was very well written and kept me intrigued. I feel like if it hadn't been tied to the High Heels book series, I would've enjoyed it so much more because I kept waiting for Maddie to make a big appearance. What I did love was that I never guessed who the killer was . . . I guessed someone completely different.

The novella is about a web designer named Kya Badder who falls in love with a pair of red high heels that she finds on Maddie Springer's website and decides to buy them. When Kya finally gets the shoes and puts them on, she feels like a supermodel and becomes very confident in herself. All of a sudden, her luck changes and lands a modeling contract AND a boyfriend. But, when Kya starts dreaming about a supermodel's death, she becomes suspicious and starts asking all the right questions to the wrong people.

I gave A High Heels Haunting (High Heels, #4.5) by Gemma Halliday four out of five stars since it didn't feature Maddie Springer, which disappointed me. This novella can be read as a stand alone book and doesn't need to be read between Alibi in High Heels (High Heels, #4) and Mayhem in High Heels (High Heels, #5) since it doesn't really progress the story line of Maddie.
