Sofie Metropolis by Tori Carrington

Genre: Chick Lit, Mystery

Sofie Metropolis is shocked, to say the least, when just before her wedding she finds her fiance and maid of honor in a very compromising situation...well, more than compromising - they were having sex! Sofie immediately cancels the wedding, although she decides to keep the wedding gifts and the apartment that her parents bought as a wedding present. Sofie's huge Greek family tries to convince her to go ahead with the wedding anyway - after all, boys will be boys. However, Sofie's not having any of it. She is not going to marry a cheat!

Sofie takes a job as a private investigator in her uncle's agency and is more than disappointed at the cases she gets stuck with, everything from finding a neighbor's Jack Russell Terrier to locating a missing neighborhood vampire to chasing down cheating spouses. The cheating spouse case takes a mysterious turn when Sofie's own life is in danger. The secretive Jake Porter comes to her rescue, but can he be trusted? On the other hand, he's hot - does it really matter?

This is a fun comedy in the same vein as Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series. I listened to the audio version of this and found myself laughing out loud in the car -something I really didn't want to do since people might think I was a bit insane, but maybe I am :) I've always been a fan of Tori Carrington's work and her Harlequin Blaze books are still my favorites, but this is a very promising series. I have the next two books in my TBR and I'm sure I'll get the fourth book as well. I find myself looking forward to seeing what adventures Sofie is going to find herself mixed in next.
