    3. I've been reading murder mysteries my whole life. So I wrote this one as a collection of the elements that I have enjoyed myself. It makes me laugh and holds my attention - even though I've read it through about ten times. It doesn't take itself too seriously.

    4. The title alone tells you this isn't a cozy about embroidering or making fudge. The central character, Donna Leigh, isn't afraid to get her hands dirty. But even when she finds herself in trouble, she never lacks for a witty response. This amateur sleuth compares herself to Miss Marple, albeit a "younger, hotter " Jane Marple. And though she may unwittingly do ditzy things, such as propping a ladder against the dead woman's house, thereby attracting the attention of the police, she is a savvy bu [...]

The first thing Donna wonders is if she will be a suspect. She, like many others, had been subject to Claire’s abusive personality and was not saddened when she [...]

    6. I picked up this book because I enjoy reading Robin Leemann Donovan's blog, Menologues, and figured if it was written by her, it would be witty and clever. I wasn't sure what to expect, as I'm not typically a murder mystery reader -- it ended up being a book I couldn't put down. The main character, Donna Leigh, sets out on a new adventure every chapter while uncovering more evidence about the murder of a former colleague. I was laughing the entire time as the mystery unfolded. Donovan has create [...]

    7. Amazing book- truly engaging with its humor and mystery. Definitely a must-read if you love a good laugh or mystery novels.

    8. Is it Still Murder if She was a Bitch by Robin Leemann Donovan is an interesting cozy mystery. Donna Leigh is the main character and she is one of the co-owners of Marcel. Marcel is an advertising and marketing consulting agency. She co-owns the agency with Liv and Donny.

    9. “Is It Still Murder Even If She Was A Bitch?” by Robin Leemann Donovan begins with the cleverest title for a murder mystery and delivers a fun romp through a murder investigation with sleuth Donna Leigh, a menopausal ad exec who describes herself “about as subtle as a Rolls Royce in the Wal Mart parking lot.” Donna Leigh inserts herself into the investigation of the death of an unlikable former colleague when she fears the police might finger her for the crime. Chaos ensues.Donovan is a [...]

    10. This was a fun little mystery book. I read it in like 6 hours and really enjoyed it. I didnt guess the twist at the end so that made me very very happy because i can almost always guess the twist at the end of books. I feel like im maybe a little young for the target audience. I feel like i would really suggest this book for a over thirty light mystery lover. I felt an easy agreement with the main character not necessarily a connection but i enjoyed the way that she was written and didnt feel pu [...]

    11. One thing that struck me right away was the pacing of this book. It zooms along in the first several chapters. There's humor and the mystery is pretty good. I really enjoyed a few of the supporting cast members (I'm blanking on their names now, but I think one was Pat. -- The book is already in someone else's hands, so I can't double-check!) It's a "cozy mystery." Think "Stephanie Plum hits menopause" and you just might have the protagonist. I also have to admit that it was fun reading a book wi [...]

    12. A good old fashioned mystery, with splashes of humor and a peak at the inner workings of an advertising agency. One of my favorite lines by Ms. Donovan adroitly captured a glimpse of American corporate heads, referred to in the book simply by the initials JQH:"And, as in any good zombie movie, we shuddered when in the presence of the JQH undead, the majority of drones who appeared to have no soul -- and certainly nothing that resembled a personality. Creepy." With snappy diaglogue and fast-paced [...]

    13. Did the title catch your attention? That's the whole reason I requested this title in NetGalley! I quickly read through Is It Still Murder Even If She Was A Bitch. Like most mysteries, the investigators suck at their job and the heroine/hero has to figure it out before they're killed, too! What you get here is a dash of The Devil Wears Prada and Murder She Wrote. It's a fun story and I would recommend it to anyone who loves a good little mystery. ****FOUR SOLID STARS****I reviewed an advance rea [...]
