The Molly Forrester Mystery Series
What if Carrie Bradshaw solved murder mysteries?
Molly Forrester is an advice columnist for Zeitgeist magazine but wants to be taken seriously as a journalist.
Then she witnesses a murder!
How the rest unfolds I will keep secret, so you may enjoy it as much as I did.
As a connoisseur of chick lit, I would say this is near the top of the pile. The author, Sheryl J. Anderson is one of my new favorites. The Forrester series is not quite as good as masterpieces like Helen Fielding's "Bridget Jones's Diary" or Jennifer Weiner's "Good in Bed", but still super great, especially because it's a SERIES so you don't fall in love with the characters and then poof! they're gone (still waiting for the next Bridget Jones book). You can always count on more Molly.
The joys of this book are the great, specific references about fashion and New York City that many girls will appreciate - which aren't thrown about in a clinky way as Plum Sykes did in the disappointing "Bergdorf Blondes". Molly steps in pools of blood with her Jimmy Choos, you guys. Oh! And there's also a totally adorable homocide detective.
There are four in this series so far.
Good for: girls who don't take themselves too seriously, girlfriends going on long cross-continental flights, some moms, many teenage girls.
Price: $6.99 (paperback) to $24.99 (hardcover) on amazon.com
