The Stiff and the Dead by Lori Avocato

Title: The Stiff and the Dead

Author: Lori Avocato

Genre: Chick Lit

Summary: Medical fraud investigator, Pauline Sokol, needs to solve a prescription drug fraud case in order to make good on her car payment (for a car she doesn't possess) and her rent.

The Take-Away: Pauline has years of experience as a nurse, but burned out. As an investigator, she knows the clues to look for, but finding them is a challenge. She has two men helping her -- both in the field and in heating up her hormones. Her in-office help looks better in coral than Pauline ever will (and she totally envies it).

It's fast-paced book, and well-written, but with a familiar structure.

Recommendation: If you've read Janet Evanovich, you're likely to see the similarities.
