    This isn't really a review since I wrote it But I wanted to put it out there in case anyone else is looking for a fun beach read The story is inspired by a news article about how Paris Hilton gave the police a tip that helped them solve a crime That made me think how funny it would be if her whole party girl persona was just a cover for her secret life working as a private investigator The result was Heiress PI think Paris Hilton meets Veronica Mars Hope you enjoy Amanda Mahan author

    I was just going to sample the book and see if it was something my nieces might enjoy they're probably a little young for it yet and got totally sucked in As a full grown man I am certainly not the intended audience by a longshot but Mahan's writing is so sharp funny and propulsive and her central character so instantly likable which you could never say about the Hilton's and Lohan's that her adventures are very loosely based around I was hooked from the opening chapter Speaking of which one of my favorite touches is that all her chapter titles are presented as tabloid headlines that comment on the action in clever ways If I have one criticism it's that the book is so obviously intended as the first in a series and that's NOT the criticism that Mahan crafts a cliffhanger ending that'll leave you wanting pretty much right away The plot is twisty and just complex enough that I'd love to see what the author would do with an adult mystery thriller without sacrificing the humor of course It's the perfect book for girls of a certain age and if you end up reading it with them 's the better You can definitely tell Mahan's spent time in LA as she nails a certain upper class Westside milieu in a way that edges the book into satire territory think Veronica Mars meets Clueless basically In fact it's kind of begging to be a TV series so pay heed CW and FOX execs

    This super–fun read is a romp through celebrity culture an unfolding detective story and a tale of friendship It weaves like a car chase through LA’s haute boutiues private clubs Hollywood mansions and trendy hotels The fast pace of the dialog and the lingo hooked me in fast during the first few chapters But I was wondering how the book could pull off such a far fetched premise What if a “Los Angeles It Girl” were actually a private investigator fighting crime? About 13 of the way through the book the plot kicks in strong I couldn’t put it down If I hadn’t already blown through it I would have saved it for vacation Heiress PI would taste great with a fruity cocktail and a beach

    I was sent a copy of this book to review by the authorThe author of this book approached me following Bout of Books and asked me if I would be interested in reviewing After hearing the description I decided that the story sounded uniue enough that my interest was peaked so I decided that I would take a stab at it I was not disappointedHeiress PI is kind of like Veronica Mars meets Encyclopedia Brown with a huge celebrity twistInspired by a true event this story asks the uestion what if your favorite teen celebrity really was a private investigator?Lucy Hansen is the heiress to a huge hotel conglomerate and yet her family has a dark hidden secret a hidden past that could destroy everything I found myself reading through this one pretty uickly sucked into the drama and the action and the little bit of romance that was thrown in there too I actually got a kind of Princess Diaries feel when I got to the section where she is holed up with her grandmother as well Not sure why but it kind of reminded me of that Overall it is well written with few editing missteps and I felt that the few that were there were easily overlooked I couldn't even remember where they were right now without going back and re reading to look for them which is high praise from me the editing and grammar nazi as I have been called by an author or twoThe ending left me hanging on the edge wanting to know what would be coming next I really want to know about these characters and find out where the story leads If you want a young adult read that is different from the paranormal and fantasy that seems to have proliferated the genre this is the book for you

    This review was first published at M's Bookshelf as part of a Gosling Girls Book Tour first thing that stood out of course was the cover The pink the nails the mugshot concept love it It's flirty it's girly it's fun just like the book I liked the make over idea and inside glimpse into the life of the rich famous and scandalousThe story turned out completely different than I expected I liked the unexpected turn of events The only 'negative' comment I can make is that I felt all of it was a bit rushed I think I would have liked the book even if it had been a bit longer It would give you time to really understand the characters Lucy for example is a very green teen but that side of her hardly comes across from the moment LuHan is born and the internal struggle between her LuHan image and her true self would have been interesting to read I thinkI enjoyed her under cover moments They were scandalous exciting and awkward 'cause let's face it although she's a lovely girl she was almost convincing as 'Paris' than you was as 'Veronica Mars' at the same time very entertaining IF the book had been a bit longer I would have enjoyed of these inside scenesHeiress PI is a very entertaining read with a lovely 'Miss Congeniality' vibe

    Laugh Out Loud Funny A great readThis book is a fun loving light hearted look into a teenage private investigator's life a la Hardy Boys or Scooby Doo Lucy Hansen LuHan is a tree hugging bottle recycling carbon minimalist who right from the get go wraps you around her finger and doesn't let you go Matched with her best friend and wannabe boyfriend Holden they embark on adventure after adventure trying to crack a case he's working on using an array of crazy gadgetsMs Mahan writes realistic characters who make you want to laugh cry and smack your forehead at their antics as they move through the story eagerly taking the reader along for the ride As one who likes a mystery but NEVER figures it out till the end I kept trying to figure out who the bad guy was only to realize that I was stumped at every turn all the while laughing at Lucy's increasingly insane anticsThis book is a great read for older teens Grade 10 and adults who enjoy a break from the mundane Ms Mahan has crafted a book that promises a great adventure and leaves you waiting with baited breath to see what happens next Eagerly anticipating the next book need to see if Lucy and Holden become an item Thanks for a fantastic read I really enjoyed it

    Easy predictable read I didn't identify with any of the characters and had a hard time empathizing with them I guess for me it's too hard to identify with the rich and famous as most of the time they disgust me The author definitely did a good job of making you want to smack some sense into the little rich kids Some of the situations Lucy found herself in made me cringe and feel a bit sorry for her I had a hard time getting into the whole private investigator aspect of the story because all I could focus on was the rampant alcohol and drug use of the kids int he story and how they can wave their money around and get out of trouble I only began to get into the book at the end Not sure if I will read any others in this series
