    One thought on “Heiress, P.I.”

    1. This isn't really a "review" since I wrote it! But I wanted to put it out there in case anyone else is looking for a fun, beach read. The story is inspired by a news article about how Paris Hilton gave the police a tip that helped them solve a crime. That made me think how funny it would be if her whole "party girl" persona was just a cover for her secret life, working as a private investigator. The result was Heiress, P.I. -- think Paris Hilton meets Veronica Mars. Hope you enjoy! -Amanda Mahan [...]

    2. I was just going to sample the book and see if it was something my nieces might enjoy (they're probably a little young for it yet) and got totally sucked in. As a full grown man, I am certainly not the intended audience by a longshot, but Mahan's writing is so sharp, funny and propulsive, and her central character so instantly likable (which you could never say about the Hilton's and Lohan's that her adventures are very loosely based around) I was hooked from the opening chapter. Speaking of whi [...]

    3. This super–fun read is a romp through celebrity culture, an unfolding detective story, and a tale of friendship. It weaves like a car chase through L.A.’s haute boutiques, private clubs, Hollywood mansions, and trendy hotels. The fast pace of the dialog and the lingo hooked me in fast during the first few chapters. But I was wondering how the book could pull off such a far-fetched premise: What if a “Los Angeles It Girl” were actually a private investigator fighting crime? About 1/3 of t [...]

    4. I was sent a copy of this book to review by the author.The author of this book approached me following Bout of Books and asked me if I would be interested in reviewing. After hearing the description, I decided that the story sounded unique enough that my interest was peaked, so I decided that I would take a stab at it. I was not disappointed.Heiress, PI is kind of like Veronica Mars meets Encyclopedia Brown, with a huge celebrity twist.Inspired by a true event, this story asks the question, what [...]

    5. This review was first published at M's Bookshelf as part of a Gosling Girls Book Tour! mssbookshelfThe first thing that stood out, of course, was the cover. The pink, the nails, the mugshot -concept, love it! It's flirty, it's girly, it's fun just like the book! I liked the make-over idea and inside glimpse into the life of the rich, famous and scandalous.The story turned out completely different than I expected. I liked the unexpected turn of events. The only 'negative' comment I can make, is t [...]

    6. Laugh-Out-Loud Funny! A great read!This book is a fun-loving, light-hearted look into a teenage private investigator's life (a-la Hardy Boys or Scooby Doo.) Lucy Hansen (LuHan) is a tree-hugging, bottle recycling, carbon minimalist who right from the get go wraps you around her finger and doesn't let you go. Matched with her best friend (and wannabe boyfriend) Holden, they embark on adventure after adventure trying to crack a case he's working on, using an array of crazy gadgets.Ms. Mahan writes [...]

    7. Easy, predictable read. I didn't identify with any of the characters and had a hard time empathizing with them. I guess for me it's too hard to identify with the rich and famous as most of the time they disgust me. The author definitely did a good job of making you want to smack some sense into the little rich kids. Some of the situations Lucy found herself in made me cringe and feel a bit sorry for her. I had a hard time getting into the whole private investigator aspect of the story because al [...]

    8. I loved it!This was a fast-paced, chick lit mystery enhanced by very interesting and likeable characters, and sprinkled with Hollywood flair.Lucy - a smart and lovely girl, involved in ecology and heiress to a fabulous fortune - and her childhood friend Holden, an intern at a detective agency, get involved in a dangerous investigation which turns out to be too close to home and puts Lucy’s life in jeopardy.It was a very interesting, full of action, and hilarious at some points read. I highly r [...]

    9. Quick read. Kept me entertained. An unexpected twist was thrown in that gave it the potential to become quite interesting, but the book abruptly ended before there was any resolution! Is there going to be a second book? What happens??

    10. Fun to read and incredibly detailed with a surprising plot twist! Nice work by a Titan!! It's definitely a beach read.

    11. This was certainly an interesting concept and this book aimed at young adults is full to the brim with drama! This book follows the life of Lucy Hansen who becomes embroiled in a private investigation that starts out with one main goal. But, unsurprisingly, things don’t really go to plan and soon Lucy and her best friend Holden are involved in a more sinister and dangerous plot than they ever thought they would be. Travelling across America in helicopters, going undercover and having a dodgy r [...]

    12. Heiress, P.I. by Amanda Mahan is an adorable private investigator/Hollywood heiress story that is so much more than that. Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, Brittany Spears and the Olson twins have nothing on Lucy Hansen! You can call this a guilty pleasure of pure pleasure. Either description would be correct. This is a playful book that had me giggling as I read with gusto.Heiress P.I. is a spunky adventurous story which is playful, well-spirited and clever. I was entertained and charmed all the way [...]

    13. If you read the blurb for this book, I can guarantee you will get all that and MORE! Lucy is happier playing in the dirt than glamming it up, but she will do anything to help Holden. Yes, some of the issues stars deal with Lucy falls face first into, but the way they come about will have you rolling on the floor. Lucy is bold and fearless once she puts her mind to something. When she makes a name for herself she goes ALL OUT! The wardrobe malfunction that happens to Lucy had tears running down m [...]

    14. In spite of having rich and famous parents, teenage Lucy has managed to fly under the paparazzi radar and dedicated herself to save-the-plant-causes. When she tries to help Holden, her best friend and intern at a Beverly Hills detective agency, she is suddenly and unwittingly thrust into Hollywood’s spotlight, and no one could be less well prepared. Her every foolish move and mishap is recorded, publicized, misinterpreted and criticized and, even worse, she discovers a trail of crime leading b [...]

    15. I really enjoyed this book. Lucy is a likable teenager I could relate to, despite the fact that she is a bona fide heiress. She is no snob and refreshingly down to earth. The writing is sharp and the pace is fast as Lucy sets out to help her BFF crack a case for his new boss, a world famous PI. The case involves getting close to the heir to another fortune, who has the hots for Lucy and every other hottie in sight. Lucy does some growing up along the way, and gets to know her BFF in a new way.Th [...]

    16. The Concept behind this was sooooo cute and really pulled me in. Imagine that all the hi-jinks an LA heiress gets into is because she is really a private investigator. So I enjoyed the premise, but not all of the execution. It left too many things open ended at the end. It almost felt like there should have been a few more chapters at the end. I get that in a series, you can leave things a little open, but there should also be a feeling of some closure. I felt like the case was not resolved. Als [...]

    17. I want this book to become a movie. It would be such fun to see this book come alive on the big screen because it was a blast to read as a novel. It was full of fun characters, especially the main one (who was instantly likable) with many others sprinkled in. It was a great chick lit mystery mixed with Hollywood flare. There is something for everyone. I loved that this is one that a mother could read with her older daughter or one that a book club would love to read as well. It is great when a b [...]

    18. Heiress, P.I. is a quick read. There were moments where I thought I could get into it, but I just couldn't. I felt the main character was shallow, she doesn't care about all her wealth but constantly detailed brands that she was wearing and name-dropped. There wasn't enough substance to her character for me to connect, but I could have overlooked it if the character was consistent. I felt overall the book was poorly written, an editor or a first reader should've helped out by pointing out the in [...]

    19. The cover and title of this novel set its tone fairly well. It's light and frothy and does not take itself too seriously, making it a quick and easy read. This also means that there isn't too much below the surface, making it harder to connect with Lucy's plight and foibles, entertaining and outlandish as they might be.

    20. I picked this book up as a free kindle download, and it turned out to be more enjoyable than I might have expected. It is a silly, over-the-top teenage mystery escapade. I thought it was fun, if a bit unfortunate that our heroine should accumulate so much negative press for her efforts.

    21. Well I don't hate this book but truly don't like at all. There was a couple of god moments but almost, none for me :/ I think it's a better book for many people out there It was just not a good read for me.

    22. a very funny book, about mis-haps of a wall flower type of girl, who, to help her best friend and save her father, ends up being the holy grail of the paparazzos and how innocent situations can be spun into looking like something else.hilarious - I totally recomend it.

    23. This is a cute book and an easy read. However, I noticed a large number of typos and similar issues in my electronic copy which was frustrating.

    24. A fun read, although for being so book smart this girl can be kind of dumb; she gets herself in some bad situations, but it is entertaining.

    25. Did not like this book. I excuse a lot of TSTL moments in stories. MC getting drunk and then driving is not one of them. At least she got a DUI. DNF.
