Dancers in a "Gentleman's Club" crack the case and plot revenge when international crime strikes one of their own. When one of their friends is found murdered, the four detectives in six inch heels--and not much else--uncover the Russian Mob's money laundering racket and even the score.
Funny and fast paced. This is a great read. Jan 07, Jennifer added it Shelves: did-not-rate-due-to-dnf. Simply not for me. Mar 26, LK rated it really liked it. So much fun! Fast paced and as delicious as french fries. I stayed up way past midnight finishing it the other night. Just couldn't stop till it was all gone I love the specifics about the industry and I enjoyed the characters -- really vivid.
I love that the glitz of the club is totally balanced by the pragmatism of the girls.
And while I've not been an exotic dancer, I could completely relate to Sam's breaking away from her upbringing and yet it being so important to her. I would guess a lot So much fun! I would guess a lot of women can relate to that I find that the details at the end all wrap up a little too neatly for my taste, but in a way I think that is why I see this as very movie-like.
I think that is the way a fun movie might wrap up -- but I tend to want my books a little more ambiguous, I think. That said, I'm absolutely looking forward to the next book in this series. Can I vote to have Joe come back I think I have a little crush on him and maybe also that free-lance spy lady we meet?
Thanks for a fun read -- it was just what I needed! Apr 13, Melissa Rolf rated it it was amazing. Tea Leafing, by Weezie MacDonald, was a very well written story that transplanted me into unfamiliar territory, but the author weaves the story so well, you feel as if you are there- it is home.
With a fantastic class of characters that jump from the pages and into your heart, Tea Leafing leads you down a carefully paved road with suspense, humor, mystery and intrigue making this a great beach blanket read for summer! I highly suggest this book. W Mkto, MN. Apr 06, Shereena rated it it was amazing Shelves: first-reads. A big thank you to the author for providing me with a signed copy! What a READ! The story was a little slow at the beginning, but picked up and snowballed with suspense until the very end.
I was hooked on the last half of it and couldn't put it down! I appreciate Weezie's ability to phoenetically show through dialogue the accents different characters had. Their individual personalities were also well developed and easily distinguis I received this book through GoodReads' First Reads Contest. Their individual personalities were also well developed and easily distinguishable from one another. In fact, even the narration changed depending on which character was being described at that point in the story.
Clearly a lot of detail went into writing this book. My vote is.. Without a doubt, just read it. I loved it and I am sure you will too. Mar 31, Corina rated it really liked it. Aside from a few typos very few , this was much better than I had anticipated. The one thing I felt was a little overdone was all the detail about the strip club and strippers. It was almost as if the author did tons of research then crammed every bit of it in, even though it wasn't all necessary.
However, the plot was believable and engaging. The story takes place in an Atlanta strip club.

Near the very beginning we find out that one of the strippers, Lena, has been found murdered execution style. Her five best friends set out to find out what happened and why, and most of all WHO.
Definitely worth the read if you are not shocked by language, nudity, drugs, and the life of a stripper at a strip club. Dec 20, Ashley Irby rated it really liked it.
Tea Leafing (#1)

Replete with Southern tradition and the heady emotions of the civil rights movement, this first novel is richly imagined. It is a touching coming-of-age story that is sincere and poignant. With similar charm and intention as The Help , Dollbaby is sure to please. When year-old Ibby's father dies in an accident, her no-good mother, Vidrine, hauls her across the country to live with a grandmother she's never met: the tragic, eccentric and indomitable Fannie Bell.
Fannie's big house in New Orleans is like nothing Ibby's seen in Olympia, Washington; of particular note are the two black women, Queenie and her daughter Dollbaby, who work there. Soon, Ibby learns the Fannie Rules: Don't ask questions, don't unlock the doors on the second floor, and don't talk about the past. Infractions send Fannie to the mental hospital for a "rest," a not-infrequent event. Ibby begins private school and becomes friends with Dollbaby's daughter Birdelia; though the same age, they live remarkably different lives in the segregated South.
Dollbaby goes to lunch-counter sit-ins, her brother T-Bone goes to Vietnam, the Civil Rights Amendment is passed, and slowly, the old guard of the South gives way to hippies. The story wanders gently along: Ibby has a Sweet 16 party, an old tree falls on the house, nasty Annabelle Friedrichs accuses T-Bone of rape this lie is easily revealed thanks to Miss Fannie's cleverness , and though at times the plotting is overly episodic, with few natural transitions to link the scenes, McNeal's portrait of a time and place is rich enough to mitigate the flaws.
