Finley Anderson a paralegal at Dane, Lieberman and Zarnowski in West Palm Beach, Florida is attracted to her boss lawyer Tony Caprelli and the firm’s private investigator Liam McGarrity though neither excite her as much as being a fashionista shopping for bargain priced designers. She especially wants to do it with Liam, but sh*t happens every time they begin.

Late at night Liam arrives at Finley's house with a gunshot. She agrees to hide him while he gets his wound cared for. He tells her he left the police department when the brass made him the fall guy for the shooting death of a teen in a drug bust; that same weapon was used kill his former partner; which makes Liam the suspect. As Finley, Loam and Tony investigate, someone threatens to kill the paralegal if she does not back down.

This is an enjoyable whodunit as series fans learn what happened to Liam while the trio works the case. Tony's teenage daughter, Liam's ex-wife, and Finley's mother add humorous complications to the triangle relationship. As Finley uses her fashionista skills to determine who lives tropospheric above their take home pay, fans will enjoy her latest F.A.T amateur sleuth (see Slightly Irregular, Fat Chance, Knick Off and Knock `Em Dead).
