Maines deftly combines humor with action in this fashion-forward thriller, which will remind many of such TV shows as Charlie’s Angels, Alias, and Heroes.
Oh, and by the way — if you’re taking it on vacation with you … make sure nobody’s going to give you a hard time if you get an occasional urge to read the funniest parts out loud. It is, after all, a Bethany Maines caper!
A must read for chick lit fans that enjoy a little mystery and suspense in their books.
This series is my new favorite mystery/chick lit since Janet Evonovich’s Stephanie Plum. I cannot wait for more.
Maines turns in a tale full of surprises… with a clever premise in this madcap romantic adventure that is as humorous as it is action packed.
it’s a breezy page-turner, full of action and fun… Bulletproof Mascara is lightt and amusting, perfect for a lazy weekend or long plane flight. Beauty addicts, you’ll enjoy!
SheKnows Chick Lit says it’s just plain fantastic and fun. And just call Bethany Mains the new 007 of Chick Lit. Can’t wait for the next book in the series.
Although I rolled with laughter every chapter or two, the situations never slipped away from “this could really happen!” Maines provides a merry and snugly plotted rejoinder to John Burdett’s Thailand crime fiction, while creating in Nikki a modern-day, well-groomed, James-Bond-in-lipstick.
