Pollero has created a wonderful character in the funny, wise-cracking Finley Tanner, whose two main addictions, coffee and fashion, keep her on her toes and looking good. She doesn't like
to get her hands dirty -- it ruins the manicure -- but when push turns to murder, what's a little mud on the Betsey Johnson shoes or a tear in the
Lilly Pulitzer dress? Here's hoping that there will be more laugh-out-loud adventures in the future.
Since no one believes she has the ability to get to the bottom of things, Finley brings P.I. Liam McGarrity in on the case. One look, one touch, and the electricity she's been missing is zinging big time. But she also receives death threats. Will she survive to make a decision about Patrick and Liam?
