22gigantes.com - Eleanor “Ellie” O’Donnell is part of a special investigative unit within the New York City Police Department. Her latest assignment has her tasked with uncovering the relationship between internationally known fashion mogul and all-around ice queen Marya Hampstead and a local Russian crime family. As legendary for her business acumen and beauty as her uncompromising and unapproachable personality, Marya Hampstead is not a woman to cross. Unfortunately for Ellie, the only way she can get close enough to conduct her investigation is by pretending to be an aspiring designer who takes an internship at Hampstead’s company. Definitely out of her element, Ellie has to put all her acting and investigative skills to work as she delves into what at first seems a simple case of occasional public outings with a man whose family has ties Hampstead might not know about. But when Marya’s father, an international businessman, shows up in New York, it becomes clear that something else is going on, and that there’s much more to Marya Hampstead than meets the eye. The question is, how much more and how deep is Ellie willing to go to find out? In the fast-paced world of clothes, critics, and competition, Ellie uncovers a lot more than runway gossip, including secrets that will kill far more than a bad outfit. If Looks Could Kill is the fifth and final installment of The Law Game.

By Carolyn McBride In the spirit of honesty, I received an ARC copy in exchange for an honest, unbiased review. So here it is.I had no idea what to expect when I started reading, but it didn’t take me long to realize first off, Ellie needs a candy intervention and secondly, I was hooked! The main characters are memorable and for the most part likable. Except of course for the bad guys. Pretty sure we weren’t supposed to like the assassins. Now of course, I have the urge to swig coffee while chewing cinnamon candy. (I dare you to try some!)By the time I hit the club scene at Lucky, I was pretty comfortable in my expectations of the story. It had been an interesting read, I thought I knew what was going down.NOPE!Tropes and expectations are turned inside out, split and stacked in this story, and without excessive handling. It’s not until you look back that you realize how well the author has done this.I just about spit my drink at the screen while trying not to choke on laughter and juice. I love it when a story can make me laugh, and this one did, time and time again. The humour ranged from sarcastic to understated to all out try-not-to-laugh. The dialogue was quick and punchy, which I love. I don’t need to be told who is speaking all the time, and Andi wields mastery of dialogue like so few authors do these days. An absolute plus in my books.The sexual tension was built slowly, but with resistance. It struck me as a dance with deadly props. Almost at the end, we learn who the real players are, and the pacing is spot on. I didn’t see the big reveal coming, and I really appreciated that. It made the ending so much sweeter.I’m going to miss these characters. I’m so glad I read ‘If Looks Could Kill’. Give it a chance and you might find you enjoy it! 0 of 0 people found the following review helpful. Super Fun, Sexy Story By Cynthia Corral Simply put, I really enjoyed this one, and that's the honest truth.It's not a heavy crime thriller, I'd say it's more TV show level on the thriller part - but I was happy to go with it as I got to know undercover cop Ellie and the more elusive Marya. This isn't a mark down, it's just on the lighter side which is what I needed at the time.Ellie is working on a case involving Russian mobsters who may have a link in the fashion world. Enter gorgeous Marya, head of a top fashion house and seemingly friends with many of those mobsters. Ellie gets an internship at the fashion house to keep an eye on Marya, and the sparks start to fly. Well, they're flying all around Ellie, but Marya is the untouchable ice dragon boss lady with possible Russian mob ties. What's an undercover cop to do?I kept getting confused with all the Russian bad guys, but that's because my full attention was on Ellie and Marya. More than once I was shouting "Just kiss her already!" when I should have been following along with the crime plot. But I was fully immersed in the story as we wonder whether Marya is a good gal or a bad gal, and whether that kiss will ever come. It's not a romance novel, so there's no mushy "love" involved, and neither is there a dramatic happily ever after, but it ends the way a crime novel should and on a very satisfying note at that.This is part of the Law Game series by Ylva Publishing, a series by different authors with only the shared theme of "law", so I don't know if Andi is planning on writing any future books about Ellie. But I'd be happy to read more of her crime-fighting adventures, and also to find out more about her ex Gwen - after all, there was some sort of future drinks date that we never get to see in this book.So let's see: Intricate exciting crime thriller - check! Very likable main characters (male and female) - check! Sparks between two beautiful, strong, successful women - check! One A+++ sex scene - CHECK! And a hope that I might get more Ellie in the future... this is all I need to rate it 5 stars.I was given an ARC of this book by the author, who happens to be someone I consider a friend, in exchange for a review. I hate reviewing books when they're given to me by the author because it's so difficult to then say anything bad about them. But I've read Andi's work before, and have yet to be disappointed. 0 of 0 people found the following review helpful. Another winner by Andi Marquette! By Gabita ARC received from author in exchange for an honest review.I've read most of Andi Marquette's books and from experience I know that her works are always well written and edited. This novella is no exception and I enjoyed reading it a lot.This is a mystery / detective book in which there's a slow-burn romance thrown into the mix for good measure. I liked the main characters, they are both well rounded, multilayered and believable. I loved the little quirks that Ellie has, like her rather compulsive liking of cinnamon candies. Ms. Marquette skilfully describes Ellie's transformation as she goes undercover into the fashion world in which she is a bit out of her element. You can experience her transformation not only through her wardrove but also in her newfound outlook on the fashion's world.The story is written from Ellie's point of view which gives Marya, the other main character, an air of mystery that suits the plot perfectly. There's good chemistry between them which increases in tension through the story.The secondary characters were also well described and supported the main plot smoothly with exception of the Russian "baddies" which I tended to confuse. At the end of the book, I was still trying to figure out who was who and that interrupted the nice flow of the story. I also found some parts of the plot a bit unrealistic - a bit like a James Bond's story - which is not necessarily a bad thing for this genre.Overall, another winner by Ms Marquette. I recommend it if you are looking for suspense, adventure and a bit of romance. See all 11 customer reviews...
