review 1: Chanel works in a hair salon in Hickory. When the owners husband gets fresh with her she lies and says she will be leaving the salon to join the police force. When she fills the application out as a joke she is surprised that she is actually accepted. She makes it through training and with Cocoa at her side is off to her new assignment. She meets some interesting people along the way and when her first dead body is another victim of a serial killer Chanel wants to solve the case to get back in the good graces of her commanding officer. I like the characters alot. Chanel definitely doesn't seem like the police officer type and the fact that her dog is kind of an officer too is great. I am definitely going to read the next book in the series.
review 2: I w
... moreas looking forward to reading this, the current offering from "Seven Steps to Closure" author Donna Joy Usher, and I wasn’t disappointed.In Chanel Smith, the author has created a character who is hapless yet beguiling, managing to both pursue a serial killer whilst wearing tottering heels, cope with her mother’s metamorphosis from small-town wife to chic pole dancing instructor, and avoid the wrath of her new boss.The opening scenes following Chanel through police training will resurrect memories of both the "Police Academy" and "Private Benjamin" films in readers' minds, which is made all the more entertaining with a dog involved.The book obviously isn’t meant to take on the hard-line crime novels found elsewhere on this site, being more akin to Janet Evanovich’s sharp observations and witticisms. Instead, Cocoa and Chanel is an easy read: a fun crime caper with some great one-liners, a storyline which powers along without being too taxing, and a perfect escape for those days when you want to relax, laugh out loud and not take life too seriously.I’m now looking forward to the next in the series. Five stars all the way. less

Ehh...too easy to figure out who the serial killer was. Wondering if book 2 will be same?
I Laughed out Loud! Great Plot twist!
It was a light chick lit mystery.
