I said I wouldn t read this after I suffered the truly abysmal Anacacho but I needed an X in a challenge, and to my bad luck, this was the only book I found It s as I thought it would be Bad Anacacho is worse though, so this a step up We see Allie Armington again, this time the location is NYC Allie s sister has a room mate who was killed brutally, with an x carved into her breast Allie volunteers to pretend to be Angela in a complicated plot that goes everywhere and nowhere, while Angel I said I wouldn t read this after I suffered the truly abysmal Anacacho but I needed an X in a challenge, and to my bad luck, this was the only book I found It s as I thought it would be Bad Anacacho is worse though, so this a step up We see Allie Armington again, this time the location is NYC Allie s sister has a room mate who was killed brutally, with an x carved into her breast Allie volunteers to pretend to be Angela in a complicated plot that goes everywhere and nowhere, while Angela goes traipsing back off to Texas and makes out with Allie s best friend with benefits Ho hum Of course, it turns out that it s all tied to drugs, so that Allie s Texas flame Bill Cotton can be brought back Bill is hot as ever, but he s also hiding a lot of things, and we spend many agonizingly slow pages where Allie contemplates if Bill has turned again or not, while also making do with the attentions of another sexy cop, Jaime What is a poor girl to do if these very sexy men choose to slobber over her My eyes hurt, what with the rolling they did at poor Allie s dilemmas The writing s poor The plot doesn t make a whole lot of sense, and there are too many co incidences It also doesn t make a whole lot of sense that Allie would even pose for her sister, who is a very recognizable super model, and doesn t look much like Allie We know this, because many self pitying paragraphs have been spent in Anacacho on the very same subject So This is dumb Also, why would anyone in their right minds have a civilian go through whatever Allie does in the book Wouldn t they lose their jobs Especially when they say repeatedly that Allie s on her own and they can t cover her Bull The less said about Allie s continued romantic dilemma, the better Considering the amount of time I ve spent reading two books of this tripe, I might read the third just for the sake of completing it But, I m not hoping for anything Dollycas s ThoughtsThis book was released several years ago but I found it when searching for an X book for my Alphabet Soup A Z Challenge I have not read the first book in the series so I had a little catching up to do on the characters.Sisters Allie and Angela may not live close to each other at the moment but when Angela calls with an unusual request Allie comes running What happens next is really quite unbelievable but the author reeled me right in and I couldn t put the book down Dec Dollycas s ThoughtsThis book was released several years ago but I found it when searching for an X book for my Alphabet Soup A Z Challenge I have not read the first book in the series so I had a little catching up to do on the characters.Sisters Allie and Angela may not live close to each other at the moment but when Angela calls with an unusual request Allie comes running What happens next is really quite unbelievable but the author reeled me right in and I couldn t put the book down Deception, lies, drug, sex and they are all tied together and I can t sayor I will give the whole thing away.Definitely an adult read with adult situations This story was not what I expected and would call it a very unique read The situations are serious and suspenseful but the author also adds a bit of humor There are several twists and I feel that by not reading Anacacho first I was a little perplexed at the conclusion.A quick, fast, entertaining read to fulfill the spot in my challenge I do need a book set in New Mexico for my Where Are You Reading Challenge and Spa Deadly which appears to be the next book in this series takes place so I may have to give that book a try I did not really care much for this book For a mystery book with such a short title, it was pretty unique, just like it s title I would love to read other series if the author has them I would reccommend this a good read if you like action, mystery, and romance. I liked this mystery of a lawyer who takes her sister s place so a murderer can be found and a drug ring ended. Did not like characters Did not like plot Did not like style of writing Silly and ridiculous BUT I was able to use it for a challenge so thankfully it was a quick read Stay Away (FREE PDF) Ò XS: An Allie Armington Mystery î There s a Bad Apple in the Big Apple The trouble started with a call from her sister, a supermodel, in New York City The next thing she knew, Allie Armington, young, bright, successful and slightly bored Texas attorney, was on a plane to the Big Apple It was downhill from there Beautiful women are showing up dead, neat X marks carved in their breasts with almost surgical precision Chilling enough in the abstract, but made all too real when Allie s sister s roommate turns up among them In a New York minute, Allie s up to her eyeballs in an NYPD sting operation targeting mega rich men hosting parties in a secluded castle on the exclusive Jersey shore, complete with masks, mysterious monikers, models and mischief of the carnal and chemical kind winning author of Anacacho, first in the Allie Armington Mystery series A world traveler and opera buff, Louise divides her time between Houston, Texas Montecito, California and Old Forge, New York in the Adirondacks Louise is currently The Berenstain Bears and the Bully a supermodel Lord Peter in New York City The next thing she knew The Testaments (The Handmaids Tale, Allie Armington Orders to Kill young Pandas Cookbook: Recipes for Scientific Computing, Time Series Analysis and Data Visualization using Python 1, Theodore Petrou, eBook - Amazon.com bright SとM 3 successful and slightly bored Texas attorney Kimiyo Shiruya Minami No Goku was on a plane to the Big Apple It was downhill from there Beautiful women are showing up dead Rrimas neat X marks carved in their breasts with almost surgical precision Chilling enough in the abstract Center Church but made all too real when Allie s sister s roommate turns up among them In a New York minute The Cliff Allie s up to her eyeballs in an NYPD sting operation targeting mega rich men hosting parties in a secluded castle on the exclusive Jersey shore Si Pagong at si Matsing complete with masks Delicioso Piquenique mysterious monikers Juan Gorospe (Territorio de los Hombres, Batch 6, models and mischief of the carnal and chemical kind winning author of Anacacho Naruto Vol.44 first in the Allie Armington Mystery series A world traveler and opera buff Art, Disobedience, and Ethics Louise divides her time between Houston Designing Science Presentations Texas Montecito Mozart California and Old Forge The Events at Poroth Farm New York in the Adirondacks Louise is currently
