I have found a new favourite to gobble up. Thoroughly modern, socially bold, highly intelligent, endearing characters. Who else would think of pairing up a size XXL doughboy of a culinary afficionado, social butterfly and reporter of a Jewish man hooked on old movies with a sleek, tiny bit over six feet tall, highly connected, impossibly smart and beautiful policewoman of colour? (Handler's own terms).

Desiree is assigned cases to investigate (and gets herself into dangerous predicaments) and is able to solve them before all hell breaks loose or her highly placed father has to intervene, thanks to Mitch, who does a lot of informal socializing behind the scenes, learns highly important elements to the case and unwittingly saves the day (and Desiree) on numerous occasions. Desiree's Crown Vic cruiser finds itself in precarious positions and is nearly as much a character as Desiree's other friends and colleagues.

The colour lavender in the title attracted me to this book, and I am now reading through the other titles in the series, all of which feature a different colour in the title.
