Description

When Sofie Metropolis decided to stop being a waitress and start being a private detective, she had no idea what she was getting into. With only a few cases under her belt, Sofie has inherited a dead woman's mean-spirited Jack Russell; fallen hard for a mysterious, charming Australian bounty hunter; and gained a rep for an itchy trigger finger. She even shot one of her clients!
Sofie's mom suspects Sofie's dad is having an affair, and Sofie's seen enough cheating spouses to know that her father is keeping secrets. And though Jake Porter is more available than ever, Sofie finds herself torn between the Australian she barely knows and a handsome, available Greek who knows that the fastest way to Sofie's heart is through a bakery.
Searching for a missing dry cleaner who left behind a brand-new Mercedes and a not-so-brand-new wife, Sofie is attacked by . . . a plastic-swathed suit? Or was it one of Tony DiPiazza's goons? Tony being the junior-league Mobster who has his own reasons to want to get his finely-manicured hands on the dry cleaner's account books.
If Sofie's not careful, her favorite kicks are going to be replaced by a pair of cement overshoes . . . .

Review quote

"A droll approach to crime solving.  Combine elements found in the movie "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" with the kind of capers Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum has made famous, and the result is Sofie, a Greek-American woman swimming against the tidal forces of family expectations.  Carrington's filled the book with characters that have enough originality to stand out."--"Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine" on "Dirty Laundry"
 "So you say that your Stephanie Plum novels aren't coming fast enough?  Well, this saucy plum of a PI will do just fine in between those.  Author Tori Carrington has created the sassy, smart, and hilariously funny Sofie, as well as a whole laundry basket-full of quirky neighborhood characters, co-workers, and clients.  Mystery fans are going to love getting to know Sofie and her loopy-as-terry-cloth family.  Come clean.  You love goofy mysteries, and you know it.  And you're going to love "Dirty Laundry.""--"The Queen
