Er father is probably being unfaithful dog is releasing deadly fumes and her current love or is that lust interest Jake Porter continues to save the day but otherwise remain frustratingly elusive Will Sofie ever up the mess that she calls her lifeAlthough some reviewers obviously disagree I am beginning to really this series I tried reading the Stephanie Plum books but found them just a bit too vulgar for my taste This series though by no means lacking in innuendos and highly charged scenes scales down the intensity uite a bit which I found to be much to my liking The characters are uirky and likable and the plot is fast paced and enjoyable I love Sofie s internal commentary which ranges from witty like her uips about a life that is characterized by stale Jordan almonds and dog farts to insightful like her observation that she needed to stop living for work and start living to enjoy life Like her I agree that it s not the heat that makes people act strangelywe re just all strange to start out with I look forward to reading of her adventures I was sat on the fence with the first Sofie Metropolis book but with Dirty Laundry I find myself really liking the seriesSure it is like Evanovich s Plum series There are a lot of parallel s including Sofie s use of the word Probably But for all those similarities Sofie is different from Stephanie She lacks a side ick and her family is way uirky than the Plum household She s also a girly girl something which really can t be said for StephanieIn this book there s cheating spouses or so they think a missing ferret and a missing dry cleanerOh and then there s the mob Tony DiPiazza who wants to have pasta with Sofie if you Textbook of Wisdom know what I m saying wink wink nudge nudge I have to say one of the funniest moments of the book is when Sofie s apartment is broken into Sofie Metropolis PI is back and ready for action in the second novel of this series Five months have passed since her last eventful case if you can call shooting someone in thenee an event and unfortunately she s due for anotherWhen Apostolis Pappas AKA Uncle Tolly disappears his wife Aglaia wants Sofie to find him dead or alive so she can sell his fancy new Mercedes But Sofie realizes soon enough that she s dealing with than she can handle namely the mob And a missing ferret a gassy dog and her terrible love lifeI only gave the first book in this series two stars because I felt that it was copying the Stephanie Plum series This one felt original while still having the same type of humor that I enjoyed light hearted detective series with greek recipes at the end. O bad she's too busy to notice the men in her life because she's being attacked by a malevolent dry cleaning bag bailing Aglaia out of jail and spying on her own father Sofie's uest for the truth gets her into hot water and a pair of cement overshoes Not her best lo. ,
