Excited to be leading off the BLOG TOUR for another Copper Black Mystery! Continue below for synopsis, author information and my review....

One of the youngest and most popular cities in America, Las Vegas stands as a desert metropolis built on gambling and entertainment at the core.  Drawing in millions of visitors and trillions of dollars to southern Nevada, its brief century existence saw many different changes over this time.  Enchanted by this unlikely city locale, author Megan Edwards continues to set 'Sin City' as the backdrop in her prequel to the successful debut novel Getting Off on Frank Sinatra, with Full Service Blond: A Copper Black Mystery.

Full Service Blonde follows aspiring journalist Cooper Black who meets Victoria McKimber, an outspoken prostitute at one of Nevada's legal brothels.  Victoria offers Cooper the exclusive right to tell her story.  Not only will the Las Vegas Light's "calendar girl" get a byline, but she can also impress her boyfriend and parents when they arrive for the holidays.

"I love Las Vegas," Edwards says.  "I never thought I would say that, but I came to Las Vegas to do some research years ago and the city seduced me into staying.  The unique history makes it a fascinating place to live while also making it a young city still defining itself.  I wanted to give more insight into the life of Copper Black and how she discovered her own love of Vegas, too."

Copper is busy with work, Christmas shopping, and fantasizing about a whole week with her boyfriend, whom she hasn't seen in six months.  She's also helping her brother, a civic-minded pastor who is spearheading plans for a new center to serve the homeless.  Things are hectic but under control when shocking news breaks:  Victoria McKimber has been found dead in a muddy ditch on the outskirts of town.

As Copper investigates Victoria's death, she puts her own life in jeopardy and discovers that her brother is the target of a sinister plot.  Unless Copper can expose the truth about Victoria McKimber, somebody just might get away with murder.  With twists and turns revealing more into Copper Black's background and own journey toward self-discovery, Full Service Blonde offers readers the chance to dive further into the dark side of the Southwest's city that never sleeps.

My Review:

I got to know Copper Black in Getting off on Frank Sinatra .. see my review HERE.  She's a feisty journalist with an attitude I absolutely adore and a sense of humor I can laugh out loud to.  I can see being real life friends with her.  Here we are at a prequel to the Frank Sinatra book and we get to see how Copper fell in love with Las Vegas.

Being a girl who goes to Vegas yearly, I can see the absolute ability to fall in love with Sin City... it's not all just gambling, food, and shows, you know.  Legalities are a little different and the people watching is beyond fantastic.  Quite frankly, it's not that much different than NYC in my eyes. 

We get a glimpse into Copper's personal life a bit more in this book - her relationships with her parents, her first love and her new co-workers.  Beyond that, she tries to throw away all preconceived notions and do right by a prostitute - whether she believes in the morality of her work or not.  All of this is done with a sharp sense of humor and the all too real struggle of trying to balance all parts of a busy life in a new city.  Who HASN'T been there?

It's fun to see her get into her groove with her journalistic research and prowess as she gets comfortable with her somewhat sexist co-workers.  She continually convinces herself with each move towards solving this murder mystery that this is definitely the job for her and that Vegas is absolutely the place she should be. 

A moderately paced, fun mystery sprinkled with humor and life.  I look forward to seeing where Copper ends up in future adventures.
