    An amateur detective story that reminded me of the Stephanie Plum books. It's been years since I read the first book in the series, so I did not remember all that much about Sophie and her world.

She is a mystery writer who got involved in a murder investigation once and is once again called upon to use her detective skills to save her sister from going to jail for her husband's murder. Anatoly, the private detective she clashed with in the first book, is her partner in crime in this one since she hires him to help her prove her sister's innocence. The two of them were attracted to each other in the first book, and (view spoiler)[eventually take their attraction to the next stage in this one, becoming a couple (hide spoiler)] . Sophie is just as silly as I remembered, but her sister is even more so, giving the story a lightness I don't think i was really in the mood for. The way they go about solving the mystery left me a bit exasperated too, since (view spoiler)[they don't even consider that the murder had something to do with his job, which is one of the first things a detective would look into, apart from the spouse and his mistress. As it turns out, the murder did indeed have something to do with his job, since he was obviously doing something shady, as his living well above his means proved, and his fellow scammers had had enough of him and wanted him out of the way (hide spoiler)] . The series continues with Obsession, Deceit, and Really Dark Chocolate, but I don't think I'll get to it anytime soon.

    These books remind me of the early days Stephanie Plum books, but not as over the top and not as same old same old (yet, anyway, it's just book two). But the narration is good and keep me entertained while stuck in traffic.

I will continue to read the series. The humor and wit shined through again.

But I'm a lazy ass bum and I've finished this book in September 2017 and lo and behold, only a year later here's my review! A lot of stuff happened in a year, but let's talk about something else. Pope Francis visited my little country last week, the visit all fine and dandy, even I dragged my lazy ass to wave at his cool vehicle, because I'm fond of celebrities. And yet, some shitheads, starting with a local one hit wonder celebrity, were incensed. We here in Lithuania are predominantly Catholics and population is predominantly white, so the outrage - a half-Senegalese, half-Lithuanian little girl was among the meeting group, because she knew Italian and Pope Francis was really glad to chat with her. Cue - the shitsstorm. Why her, why not a blue eyed blond, 100% pure blood Lithuanian? Oh the horror. People are seriously talking, discussing, feeling the outrage BECAUSE OF THE CHILD. Who said hello to Pope Francis. I am literally sick. What does it remind me of? Let's look up some history. School Integration – October 17, 1957 – The Students At Central High – Past Daily Reference Room The scene at Central High in Little Rock in 1957 – Tolerance and doing-the-right-thing being suspiciously absent that year. Why are people like that? What is their damage? I mean Holy Jebus, Pope Francis actually had to DEFEND that girl, because 1. it's in his job description to love all people equally, 2. IT'S A CHILD. So, writing the review kinda triggered me - with book's heroine being the half-black, half-Jewish mystery writer. And bloody good at it. The book is alright, fun, witty and lighthearted. 5*, because world needs more books like that. And either some miracle anti-racism vaccine or zombie apocalypse. I'm all for zombie apocalypse, but poor zombies would starve, because those racists idiots lack the brain. OK, vaccine it is.

    Another fantastic, light vacation read. Perfect reading for the plane and for sitting in airports for long layovers. I'm glad I've finally gotten around to discovering Sophie Katz and her delightful side-kicks. In this book, Sophie, Anatoly and Leah are investigating Leah's husband's murder. Leah (Sophie's sister) is suspect #1 as Bob was shot on the same day he told her he'd been having an affair and was leaving her for another woman.

We have lies, love and a whole lot of crazy in this book. Luckily, it's still a fairly short series and I don't have a lot of books to read to get caught up/finish

    With a title like this, it didn't have to be good! I started this late one night/early one morning after finishing Laura Lippman's What the Dead Know--which was simply too unsettling to send your subconscious off into 5-6 hours of obsessing over--and it was just the trick.

Main character Sophie Katz is a mystery writer cum-slightly incompetent but well-intentioned detective (a la Stephanie Plum as bounty hunter in Janet Evanovich's series) whose sister has just learned that her husband is having an affair. Later that same day, the sister discovers the murdered body of said philandering husband and quickly assumes Slot #1 on the police suspect list. As a mystery it's not all that strong, but that's not really what it's marketed as. Instead, it's a chick-lit fiction title (it's published by Red Dress Ink, so it's not like you weren't warned) that has the silly, fun, brash sort of stuff you'd expect. My favorite line from the book is main character Sophie Katz's announcement that, "Yeah, but I'm invincible. After the nuclear holocaust, it's gonna be me, Cher and the cockroaches" (p. 190). If it's top-notch detective fiction you're looking for, look elsewhere. However, if it's just good-hearted escapism, these are some fun folks with whom to spend an evening or two.

The two sisters seem as different as night and day.

I think Leah and Mary Anne should be BFFs. Sophie proves to be the ever-loyal sister and her bumbling antics to keep Leah from being arrested lead her to find several other suspects. Things become steamy between Sophie and Anatoly. The story combined the best of an easy read: fun characters, mystery, and romance.

    I’m reading this series in a random order. It’s not a great idea for early books and spoilers but I’m having fun with the characters witty banter and quirky personalities. I was less impressed with this one than I was Lust, Loathing and a Little Lip Gloss . I was bored with this one at times. This was still a fun, mostly lighthearted (minus the murder investigation) read which is all I have wanted to read during all the stay at home orders. I’m reading this series in a random order.

    This book just didn't have enough substance to keep me interested. I was hoping to find something comparable to Janet Evanivitch but it fell flat. I found the humor was mostly in the form of sarcastic one liners. I can't say that the plot really worked for me either. This book just didn't have enough substance to keep me interested.

    I love Sophie so much, holy toledo! She's very unapologetically self-aware, but that doesn't stop her from spiraling into chaos. And sometimes a little chaos is very fun! We see a lot of her sister Leah this time around. At first, she is very difficult to sympathize with - even when we find out her husband was murdered. She's just such a damn snob, it made her incredibly unlikable to me. As time goes on, we see more of Leah - more of the real Leah, I should say.

She's just such a damn snob, it made her incredibly unlikable to me. As time goes on, we see more of Leah - more of the real Leah, I should say. And the more she shines, the more we see that sass and ferocity runs deep in the Katz women. And that's absolutely bloody brilliant. So much of this book revolves around Leah's case, we don't see too much character development on Sophie's end. But that's fine, she's a little busy dealing with the family crisis and hiring the man who's life she almost ruined to help her. She's got quite a bit on her plate. What we do see, though, is a great amount of growth and development in her relationships - both with Leah and Anatoly. As I grew to like Leah more and more, seeing the relationship between the sisters shift and change and strengthen made me happy. (As an only child, I haven't one clue about the dynamics of sibling relationships. They're rather fascinating to me.) Once again, Sophie dives in head first, almost recklessly, in this case in order to save her sister. Thankfully, she has Anatoly as an ally this time - albeit a reluctant one at first. This book is just as much fun as the first. It's a good mix of humour, danger, fun, and flirtation. I cannot wait to continue with this series!

I read the first book in this series, and I enjoyed it, so I naturally decided to read its sequel. It had the same fast-moving plot, humor and light writing style I liked in the last book. The story in this one was more complex (in a good sense) than its predecessor, however. I like the fact that these books aren’t entirely independent stories, and have some overall progress in the main character’s personal life (of course, that does means it’s better to read them in order).

    Very entertaining mystery but I figured out the culprit(s) really quickly. The love story is good too but I don't understand how they can keep their hands off each other. They are both a little pretty passive aggressive. The characters remind me of the Samantha Plum gang but thet Sophie Katz gang have much more depth. Sophie is just as spunky as Samantha but in my opinion is more intelligent and mature. She plays games with most people but is completely loyal to get friends and family.

    San Francisco mystery writer, Sophie Katz, convinces possible romantic interest, PI Anatoly Darinsky, to help her prove her sister Leah's innocence when Leah is suspected of murder.

    I am not sure if this author has ever had a conversation with a straight black man in her life. The only time I've cringed more at unrealistic dialog is in the first book in this series when she tried to write for another black man. I was willing to overlook a lot (where is the lawyer? How are they trusting a stranger this much? Why is she being so stupid right now?) but Jerome from Flavah magazine was too much.

    I found the sister quite annoying, but whatever this was still good fun. Sad that we didn’t really get to see many of Sophie’s friends who were quite good in the first book (even if the gay side kick thing is a little eek). The main mystery was a little more complex too which I liked, still somewhat obvious, as in I knew the general deal, but there were more components to it.

    Since the first book in the series leads into this one, I was curious to see what happened next. I really want to like this series more since it's about a Jewish, Black woman, but I think I like this one even less than the first one. I don't like the way the women are always referring to other women as sluts and whores. The most sex positive character in the series was barely in this one.

    3.5 stars This is the second book that I've read in the Sophie Katz series. I liked this one a bit better than the first book. I like the books as a whole, but it takes a little while to get used to the style and characters - or at least it does for me. The series feels - well, I'm trying to think of the best way to explain it. To me, it feels kind of superficial. Like there isn't really a lot of depth. Everything is light, kind of with a flighty feeling. Sophie is snarky, but the snark doesn't a 3.5 stars This is the second book that I've read in the Sophie Katz series.

The series feels - well, I'm trying to think of the best way to explain it. To me, it feels kind of superficial. Like there isn't really a lot of depth. Everything is light, kind of with a flighty feeling. Sophie is snarky, but the snark doesn't always work. If I can think of a better way to describe my feelings, I'll try later. As I said before, I did like this book better. Some series work like that - they get better with each book. If I remember correctly, there are several books in this series. I'll add another one in my TBR pile knowing this is a fun, quick and easy series.
