Sofie's a young Greek-American woman working and living in Astoria, Queens. If you'd asked her a few months ago what she'd be doing now, she'd have replied, "I'm going to be married to the man of my dreams and working at my father's Greek restaurant. Or maybe my grandfather's Greek restaurant." Now Sofie's trading barbs with Pimply Pino, who was a pain when they were in school together and is even worse now that he's a cop and she's a P.I. She's searching for a runaway wife who may be wanted by the FBI and for a vicious neighborhood mutt. And she's got the hots for Jake Porter, Australian mystery man whom Sofie suspects is either a bounty hunter or a federal agent. Jake spends a lot of time under the hood of Sofie's car, while Sofie wishes he were tinkering with her.… (mais)

I'm not sorry I read it, but I won't bother with the others. Very Stephanie Plum-ish. Not bad, even a little unpredictable, just not, I dunno...very satisfying. Not Meaty. Probably if you're from NYC or any enclave of the Greek diaspora, you'll like it much more than I did. ( )

Sofie Metropolis was probably closer to 3.5 stars. I'm wondering if I'd read the printed version rather than listening to the audio, would I have spent less of my reading time comparing it to [Janet Evanovich] and Stephanie Plum.Sofie's the same kind of fish out of water, stumbling into crazy situations. Except that she's trying to be a P.I. rather than a bounty hunter. And her wacky family is Greek, not Italian. And she caught her ex cheating at the church, rather than after they married.The goofy dog is much smaller; the sidekicks aren't as full of personality (which isn't fair, since I've only read 1 of these books as opposed to 16 Stephanie Plum books, plus the between the numbers ones).There's no love triangle yet, thank goodness. There is a mysterious, highly attractive guy that I thought would take the Ranger/mentor role, but that hasn't panned out so far.As I said before, I know these comparisons aren't entirely fair. Evanovich didn't pioneer any of these elements, but she's just the most successful at turning them into a "thing", and that is where my mind went while listening to this book. ( )

Here's another fun P.I. series to keep you entertained! Sofie Metropolis is on the case! Working at her mostly retired uncle's Private Investigator office along with the quirky, gum popping office manager. Of course what's an entertaining P.I. series without the mysterious hunk!? Don't fear...the mysterious & hunky Jake Porter will steam things up!

The book takes place in Astoria, Queens. Where if you haven't guessed it already Sofie & her Greek family live & work. Of course you can't forget Sofie's over-bearing, but loving mother. Throw all that together along with a missing dog, possible vampires & cheating spouses & you have one romping, wild ride!

The Metropolis series is comparable to Evanovich, Plum series. When I picked the book up I wasn't sure whether I would enjoy it very much or not. After having read it I can say that I very much did! What makes it stand out is the Greek heritage & references. The book has been compared to the movie My Big Fat Greek Wedding & of course the Plum series. I can see the comparisons of both in this book. A light, entertaining, fun read that I would recommend for Evanovich & Lutz fans, along with any fans of comparable authors. ( )

The more I read of the book the more it reminded me of Janet Evanovich's series. It even references it at one point when the heroine decides to end her evening by reading One for the Money. Considering you only need to replace Italian with Greece and New Jersey with New York, I think it is a complete rip off. Even the love interest is very Morelli. Disappointing.

Not much good. I believe the author asked herself "what can I write to exploit the success of the movie 'My Big Fat Greek Wedding'?"
