Anyway, cute read. This time Happy is in Miami judging a teen pageant when a judge ends up dead. Is it the business partner? The half-brother? The rival news anchor? Apr 09, Kara rated it really liked it. Another fun, fast read and this time I was thrown for a loop with the ending. This beauty queen as accidental detective though in Happy's case it's accidentally on purpose is a surprisingly fun twist and I enjoy reading about the clothes almost as much as I enjoy the mystery.
Charming, funny whodunnits if you're looking for a quick chicklit read. Apr 07, Debbie rated it really liked it.
