Title: Looks To Die For
Author: Janice Kaplan
Year published: 2007
Why I picked up this book: ARC came in at work and it looked interesting. I’m a sucker for getting to read books early.
Do I like the cover? Eh, it’s okay, but kinda silly.
Is this part of a series? I don’t think it is, but who knows?
What I enjoyed about the book: It’s a rather fun, quirky cozy mystery/chick lit. Set in upper class L.A. society as the wife of a prominent plastic surgeon has to clear his name. Lots of name dropping, but it worked for the story and didn’t bother me. Nothing deep here, but as a fun mystery, it worked pretty well.
What I didn’t like about the book? Well, it IS a bit shallow, but that’s not really a problem. So there really wasn’t much I didn’t like. It’s just what it looks like, a cute, fun mystery. No blood and guts here.
Is this a new-to-me author and would I read something by this author again? New-to-me author and I don’t know if I’ll read anything more by this author. Only if I find something else that sounds interesting.
Am I keeping it or passing it on? I’m passing it on. I didn’t feel the need to keep it, so back on the shelf it will go.
