Rhonda Pollero
Adult Fiction POLLERO

Comments  Summary  Reviews

From Publishers' Weekly:

With more than 25 contemporary romances (Automatic Proposal, etc.) under the pen name Kelsey Roberts, Pollero makes her frivolous but fun mystery debut featuring Finley Anderson Tanner (F.A.T.), a 29-year-old West Palm Beach paralegal whose designer name-dropping prattle and discount shopaholism obscure her smarts. Bored silly by her job in the estates and trusts department, she agrees to help a senior partner handle a client convinced that her deceased husband didn't fall asleep at the wheel but was actually murdered. Finley's sweet but boring boyfriend is out of town, and her credit cards are maxed out, so she applies her bargain-hunting instincts to the investigation and finds a statistical improbability in the "accidental" deaths of several jurors after a medical malpractice suit. She meets the obligatory bad boy detective, Liam McGarrity, and wriggles out of several tight spots in this lighthearted romp. (Mar.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved

From Library Journal:

Paralegal Finley Tanner is asked to placate a client of the high-powered legal firm where she works. The client is a widow who believes her husband was murdered in an automobile crash. No one takes her seriously, but as Finley begins to delve into the facts, she sees that there may be some truth in the widow's suspicions. Chick lit-mystery fans will love Finley's offhand mention of her Prada bags and her lusting after the one-dimensional hunk private investigator who is helping her. Her libido aside, Finley shows that she is intelligent as well as beautifully dressed. Writing as Kelsey Roberts, Pollero has produced more than 25 romances and won many awards. She lives in southern Florida. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
