Overview

Linda Grimes's sexy and hilarious urban fantasy series that began with "In a Fix" and Quick Fix continues in The Big Fix.

Aura adaptor extraordinaire Ciel Halligan, who uses her chameleon-like abilities to fix her clients' problems as them is filling in on set for action superstar Jackson Gunn, whose snake phobia is standing in the way of his completing his latest mega-millions Hollywood blockbuster. There's only one thing Jack fears more than snakes, and that's the possibility of his fans finding out he screams at the sight of one. Going from hero to laughing stock isn't part of his career plan.

Seems like a simple enough job to Ciel, who doesn't particularly like snakes, but figures she can tolerate an afternoon with them, for the right price which Jack is offering, and then some. What she doesn't count on is finding out that while she was busy wrangling snakes for him, his wife was busy getting killed. When Ciel goes to break the sad news to the star, she finds out Jack was AWOL from her client hideaway at the time of the murder.

Ciel begins to suspect Jack's phobia was phony, and that he only hired her to provide him with an alibi but if she goes to the police, she'll have to explain how she knows he wasn't really on set. Up against a wall, Ciel calls on her best-friend-turned-love-interest Billy, and her not-so-ex-crush Mark, to help her set up the sting of a lifetime."

Grimes’s third Ciel Halligan contemporary caper (after Quick Fix) combines elements of a complicated romance with hints of Hollywood and the paranormal. Ciel is just one in a long line of aura adaptors: humans who were born with a slight genetic quirk that allows them to take on the appearance of anyone they come in contact with. Like most of her family, Ciel makes her living using her gift, primarily impersonating Hollywood stars. When the wife of the actor she’s standing in for turns up dead, Ciel turns to two of her fellow adaptors: her boyfriend, Billy, and their mutual friend (on whom she has a crush), Mark. However, it takes the whole family to manage this mystery. Self-referential humor combines beautifully with fast-paced action and suspense. The warm, merry vibe of Ciel’s large family and the continuity from previous books are simply added bonuses to the exceptionally well-told story. A moment of ambiguity concerning identity and sexual consent provides the only slightly discordant note in an otherwise juicy tale that will thrill fans of romance, mystery, and the supernatural. Agent: Michelle Wolfson, Wolfson Literary Agency. (May)
