Reseña del editor
A frothy, funny page-turner! “Stephanie Bond is in her usual rare form, and that form is utterly delightful. KILL THE COMPETITION is an excellent, fast-paced, sexy story. —AOL Romance Fiction Forum There’s only one sure way to get to the top: Kill the competition. Four women who carpool to their jobs in midtown Atlanta learn that competition can be murder, y’all! “With a fast pace that moves the story along and smart snappy dialog between the characters, Ms Bond has penned another fascinating read that will leave her readers wanting more from this talented and imaginative author.” —A Romance Review “Ms. Bond’s talent for creating characters is superb, and you feel like you know them personally. Her narrative is so descriptive that I smelled the exhaust fumes along the Georgia 400 and I-85 to downtown Atlanta.” —AOL Romance Fiction Forum “Whatever book you want, you will probably find it in KILL THE COMPETITION. Laughter, suspense, passion, and female bonding all combine in this realistically complex and sometimes whacky book. Ms. Bond has created magic, and she pulls more than one rabbit out of the hat to surprise her readers.” —Academic Planet “With such an ominous title as KILL THE COMPETITION, readers probably expect plenty of suspense and tense drama. But Ms. Bond skillfully manages to infuse the serious business of murder with enough charm, romance, and humor to give the story a fun, light-hearted feeling.” —Romance Reviews Today “As true-to-life, romantic and witty as we’ve come to expect from Ms. Bond. Do yourself a favor—don’t miss this one.” —Old Book Barn Gazette Starred review! “DO read this novel.” —Publishers Weekly Want to kill a few hours with a fun book? Read KILL THE COMPETION!

I listened to the Audible version of this novel and I'm not sure if that was a good thing or a bad thing. The voice the narrator used gave me the impression that Detective Joe Capistrano was a bit sleazy... but his actions didn't convey that at all! And the voice of Roxann made her seem kind of flat and at times totally uncaring. I don't believe that was the intention of the author. It made me wish I had "read" the book instead of listened to it.
This was an action packed story starting out with Roxann getting fired from her job as a waitress. The waitress job was just a cover job. Her REAL job was helping women who were victims of domestic abuse escape to establish themselves in a new environment. That got her into a bit of trouble as one of those husbands came after Roxann for information on where his wife had run off to. Detective Capistrano wants to find the wife also because she was a witness to her husband shooting Detective Capistrano's partner.
Getting away for awhile, Roxann decides to go back home where her cousin, Angora, is getting married. But then poor Angora gets left at the alter when hubby-to-be decides he wants to rekindle the flame with his old girlfriend. Wanting to get away, Angora talks Roxann into taking her on a road trip (with ex-fiance's American Express gold card) to their college homecoming. That's when things really start getting crazy! Old crushes on a college professor, old murders, new murders, old loves and new loves! A crazy, domineering mother/aunt, and a soybean farmer attorney add more craziness to this mix.
Stephanie Bond brings together romance, mystery, intrigue, and family chaos... all rolled together with a heavy dose of humor.
Jolie believes she’s got to be at the lowest point in her life. Someone had stolen her car, she’s reported that her boyfriend is missing and had quit her job at a real estate agency after she’d been asked to play a part in a shady deal. She’s now working part time selling shoes at Nieman Marcus until she can get enough money together to get her own real estate agency off the ground. But things manage to get even worse, and yet funnier. A co-worker talks her into joining her at an exclusive party and doesn’t find out until she’s there, that they crashed the party.
The antics are both somewhat outrageous as well as humorous as Jolie looks for answers about her boyfriend and becomes a suspect in a murder. I loved most of the characters and how they respond to situations. And the mystery is nicely twisted. Many mysteries have clues or situations that are red herrings. In this one each has importance and there is more than one mystery taking place.
A fun romp if you want an escape from reality.
This was a light, easy read that surprised me with a couple of twists I didn't see coming. The romance, on the other hand, was broadcast loud and clear from the beginning. Still, it was an enjoyable summer novel that held my interest and left me wanting to check out the next book in the Mojo series.
The police start asking Jolie questions when her boyfriend's car is found at the bottom of the river with the body of a woman inside of it. While she thinks her boyfriend is a jerk, she doesn't think him capable of murder. Plus, Jolie doesn't like being implicated in this crime. So, she starts to investigate on her own.
She befriends Carlotta, who also works at Neiman Marcus. Carlotta is a habitual party crasher. She gets Jolie into the various fundraisers and shindigs that the wealthy people in Atlanta are attending, where she keeps running into Blake Underwood, the son of a wealthy man who is back from living in Costa Rica. He seems to be able to show up just in time, when Jolie needs rescuing.
I thought this book was okay. It's a nice summer time read.
