Getting off on Frank Sinatra takes readers on an amazing ride
I have not read a murder mystery novel in a long time. These books can go either way, they can be really good or quite bad. When I heard of Getting off on Frank Sinatra I was intrigued though. So I decided to give this book a chance. Here is what I thought of this novel.
You can read the plot for Getting off on Frank Sinatra here:
Aspiring journalist Copper Black has just found out that her boyfriend is responsible for his not-quite-ex-wife’s pregnancy. An unexpected house-sitting job at a notorious Las Vegas “party house” should provide not only a pool with a swim-up bar but also much-needed distraction.
While researching a story about an exclusive private school, Copper accidentally discovers the dead body of the school’s beloved founder. Now involved in a high-profile murder investigation, Copper turns to her brother, a civic-minded pastor who is overseeing the construction of a center for the homeless. A Paiute medicine man claims the site is a sacred burial ground, attracting hordes of protesters.
As she tries to solve the murder, help her brother, advance her career, and sort out her love life, Copper stirs up a world of trouble.
I wasn’t that impressed with Getting off on Frank Sinatra at first, but once the story got going it gripped me and never let go. This is a novel that has action, drama, comedy, suspense, a few surprises and paints a colorful tapestry of modern Las Vegas. Copper Black is the perfect main character. I loved that she is a journalist like me, and had similar tastes in what she wanted to write about. She is strong, independent, and yet she has her faults too.
