From the supremely talented author of Skinny-dipping comes a wickedly funny and original suspense novel featuring the smart, sassy Lilly Cleary

It's hard being Lillian Belle Rosemary Cleary.

And if I didn't know that already, Bonita, my legal secretary supreme and secondary therapist, kept reminding me.

"Carita," she said, shaking her head and handing me the pink highlighter at my hyperventilated request so that I could mark another obscure legal point I needed to memorize for my upcoming appellate argument. "You make this so much more difficult than it needs to be."

So spank me, I'm a lawyer and complicating things at a high hourly rate is my specialty.

Sometimes being a lawyer is the pits. At least that's what Lilly Cleary thinks. Lilly is a tough-as-nails attorney (and an obsessive-compulsive health nut) who works for a big firm in Sarasota, Florida. Just when she's got her hands full with a psychic client and a Nazi next-door neighbor who keeps reporting her to the police, an obnoxious partner in her firm is murdered.

When the loyal Bonita surfaces as a key suspect, Lilly jumps knee-deep into the murder investigation and encounters a world-class assortment of weirdo suspects -- all of whom had good reason to want to knock the guy off.

User Review  - Tracey Mcd - Goodreads

Read at the beach. Do not try to read elsewhere. At the beach, you need amazing coincidences, unrealistic histories and connections and silliness. And the neighbor isn't a nazi. That's not a spoiler. Just a clarification on a too-easily-thrown-around label. Read full review
