Finley Anderson Tanner, a West Palm Beach, Fla., paralegal with a penchant for drama and a love for designer labels, is back and looking for love and a missing person in Pollero's fourth installment in the F.A.T. series. Equally enamored with rough-and-tumble PI Liam McGarrity and law firm partner Tony Caprelli, shallow but good-hearted Finley is forced to weigh her options when pushed by her meddling mother to find a date to take to Finley's sister's wedding. As if choosing a man weren't enough, Finley's boss Ellen abruptly quits and disappears, leaving a mysterious bag of clothing and jewelry for Finley to get rid of. Suspecting no foul play, Finley gladly sells the jewelry on eBay to finance her own purchases. However, when best friend Becky also disappears after helping sell the goods, Finley realizes something is amiss. Taking it upon herself to investigate their disappearances, Finley discovers that Ellen is not who she appears to be, and what began as an auction for costume jewelry has put several lives on the line. Readers who delight in luxury brand names, skinny women, and studly men will adore this light romp, but readers looking for a serious mystery or compelling character development will want to look elsewhere.

Shopaholic meets Stephanie Plum in the fourth novel of the wickedly funny series featuring paralegal-turned-crime-fighter Finley Anderson Tanner.  Kidnapping is so last season. Couture-conscious paralegal Finley Anderson Tanner knew it was risky to break her cardinal shopping rule&;never pay full price&;for a last-minute date with her gorgeous new boss, but the hidden costs of her little black dress have put her whole life in the red. After the romantic evening turns into a disaster thanks to impossibly sexy and utterly infuriating private eye Liam McGarrity, Finley finds herself down two thousand dollars and out two potential boyfriends. Naturally, she turns to eBay. To help pay off her debt, she tries to sell the vintage pageant jewelry she received for doing law partner Ellen Lieberman a favor. But when Finley&;s best friend abruptly disappears while helping to wrap up the auction, Finley fears the worst. Does frumpy Ellen have a sinister double life as a beauty queen? Is the auction&;s high bidder, Tiara64, more suspicious than her name suggests? Can Finley possibly hunt for clues without irresistible Liam swooping in to bail her out of trouble . . . again? Rhonda Pollero&;s hilarious new novel featuring fashionista crime-fighter Finley Anderson Tanner is the must-have mystery of the season.
