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.
