4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Antonia S. Mochan on 18 Sept. 2000
Format: Paperback
This is the first book in a series featuring New York TV journalist Robin, who ends up involved in murder, mystery, deceit, jealousy and various other grisly things. The style is very much the slick American thriller, though the heroine is gutsy and flirty and generally the kind of woman you'd like to go out drinking with. Certainly a much better read than most of the vapid Bridget Jones wannabes that are floating around and proves that single women in their 30s don't sit around wondering about how to get a boyfriend all the time - sometimes they're more concerned about how to wash blood out of their party outfit...

Format: Kindle Edition
This is a kindle reissue of the first in the Robin Hudson mystery series. This was first published in 1994 and the entire series ran to five books:

What’s a Girl Gotta Do?
Nice Girls Finish Last
Revenge of the Cootie Girls
The Last Manly Man
The Chelsea Girl Murders

I remember reading this book when it first came out and I hope that this new kindle edition will get this series a whole new audience, because Robin Hudson is a wonderful lead character. When we meet her, Robin is thirty five, a lowly third string correspondent at the All News Network (ANN), demoted after a couple of horribly embarrassing events and her husband, Burke Avery, has left her for the much younger, doe eyed Miss Amy Penny…

Her marriage may be over and her career floundering, but, as Robin is about to discover, things can get worse. A strange man contacts her and asks to meet her at an ANN company party at the Marfeles Palace Hotel on New Year’s Eve. What does he want and what secrets does he know about Robin’s past? Before she can find out, the man – a P.I. called Larry Griff – has been killed and Robin finds herself a suspect.

In between accompanying her sleezy boss Jerry Spurdle to an undercover assignment at a sperm clinic, deciding on whether to date the gorgeous Eric, coming to terms with her feelings about Burke and avoiding her hilarious, abusive and elderly neighbour, Mrs Ramirez, Robin decides to discover who is really the murderer. If you enjoy books such as Stephanie Plum, then you might also like this. Robin is intelligent, witty and regards every object as a potential weapon. What can possibly go wrong? I am so glad I have re-discovered this series and look forward to re-reading Robin’s adventures . Lastly, I received a copy of this book from the publishers, via NetGalley, for review.

I came to this book having read all the Stephanie Plum novels by Janet Evanovich and hoped to find more of the same. Its a fun read, but the plot is quite weak, and so I dont think it measures up to Evanovich. All the same, I did enjoy it, and will read more of this author.
