Review: Getting off on Frank Sinatra by Megan Edwards
Rating/Review: ☕☕☕ 1/2 (3 1/2 cups!)
Getting Off on Frank Sinatra sounds really sexy with its double meaning but its actually just a play on words. Its also the theme for Copper Black's life, budding investigative journalist which was just in theory until she stumbles upon a dead body. It all started with her boyfriend getting his soon to be ex-wife pregnant (the soon to be should have warned her). Copper swallowing her disappoint and her sad love life, went on a charity trip for her brother which led her to meeting Marilyn Weaver, prominent personality, which led her to a possible news story, which led her to meeting her son, which led her to a kind of a date with that son, which basically led her to a dead body. The dead body happens to be Marilyn Nash. All the while juggling her love life, while trying to decide on what story to run for her boss so she can get a shot at a new position at her paper. In other words Copper Black is confused and still being dragged unwillingly to solve a murder.
Getting Off On Frank Sinatra is a cozy murder mystery with a female protagonist that is just trying to live her own life drama's without the complication of a little murder. Its pacing is steady, its heroine clueless and its plot is well developed. Its a fun quick read for those who love cozy murder mysteries with an unwilling heroine.
Full of plot twists, historical and unknown facts about Las Vegas like the neon signs junk yard, Getting off on Frank Sinatra is an entertaining mystery that will have you chuckle and on edge. As Copper tries to solve the murder, help her brother, advance her journalism career, understand her parents, and sort out her love life, Copper stirs up a world of trouble. Will Copper manage to bring a murderer and a predator to justice, despite her rudimentary sleuthing experience and unconventional methods?
