Rare Book
  • Robin is homeless after her apartment burns. She moves into her friend, Tomaya's apartment at the Chelsea Hotel. Unfortunately, for Robin, Tomaya is rather free with her keys and Robin is awakened in the middle of the night by a bratty adolescent girl who claims that Tomaya said that she could stay there. The girl, Nadia, speaks with a Slavik accent but won't tell Robin where she is from--just that she is waiting to meet her boyfriend so that they can marry and that her family is not pleased because they've already picked out someone for her to marry. The next day while Robin is at work, Nadia disappears. In the meantime, the boy that Robin thinks is the boyfriend shows up and demands to be taken to Nadia. There is a murder of an art dealer named Wozniak and at first Robin is a suspect because when she goes to the apartment door to see what the noise was, the body falls on top of her.

    There are a lot of humorous moments in the book. Many of them involving Mrs. Ramirez, Robin's former neighbor whose lighted picture of Jesus had a short and burnt down the apartment complex, her chihuahua who the nuns dressed in a tiny habit, and Maggie Mason who pulled off one of the best revenge strategies I've ever heard of.

    I got really tired of Rocky and Nadia and the toupee guys however there would not have been a story without them.

  • It's a very funny, but overly fantastic,mystery set in Manhattan in the Chelsea Hotel (with a lot of Chelsea Hotel history thrown in). The adventures are too wild to be believable. I buy all Sparkle Hayter's and all Janet Evanovich's, but I have to admit that Evanovich is better. Hayter tries too hard to make every character eccentric, zany or wacky in every way but maybe that's the way Manhattan is. The Trenton characters are more grounded in reality. I find that Robin Hudson comes more vividly to life whenever her background in Minnesota intrudes (which it doesn't in this book).
    Incidentally I noticed a reference to checking mail for anthrax (page 20 of the paperback) and this has a 2000 original publication date.

  • I had trouble reading this book I think it was because of the strange names

    Talking about people from Uzbekistan with
    Names like Rocky it kind of through me when I came on the strange name

  • I hated to see the Robin Hudson series end, although I understand that Hayter is a free spirit and needed to move on to other challenges. The setting of the Chelsea Hotel makes this book, with the characters a close second. Plot is always way down the list for a Hayter mystery, but they are still great fun to read and make you laugh out loud. I'll probably read this book again just to enjoy life behind the scenes of the Chelsea and visit with Robin Hudson one more time.

  • I have been waiting for these books to become available for Kindle for a long time. 10 years ago I found two of these books in our local library and had to search for the others online. Out of print and not available, I was able to buy them used from three different websites. Sparkle is an enjoyable read.

  • I love pretty much everything that Sparkle Hayter has written -- including this one. More! More!

  • Sparkle Hayter's Robin Hudson is rapidly becoming one of my favorite characters in the sub genre that is hard boiled humor romance mystery (for lack of a better term). If you enjoy Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series then you'll enjoy this one. Hudson works for a large liberal (is there any other kind?) news network, and the double dealings and office politics from her employment situation alone make the series worthwhile. Author Hayter used to work for several such organizations, and her descriptions of life at the all news station rings true. Her love life is about as messed up as Stephanie Plum's or Casey Jones (another series I recommend), and while some of her mystery situations seem over the top, there's still enough threat of real danger and believable bad guys (and gals) to keep up the suspense.
    In this novel, which is the 5th in the series, Robin's apartment is burned down by one of her older neighbor's electric Ascension of Jesus display when it develops a short circuit. Taking her few rescued belongings and her grandfather's old rifle (purely for sentimental value) she moves into the famous Chelsea hotel, home to the artists and bohemian eccentrics in New York.
    Before she can settle into her new (borrowed from a friend) digs and start her vacation she encounters dead philandering artists, mute Zen bodybuilders, former girlfriends of her own former boyfriends, and young lovers on the lam. As usual her only choice is to jump in where others fear to tread and try to solve the mysteries involved. Definitely recommended.

  • In the Big Apple, Robin Hudson is a forty-one-year-old power player who heads programming for the Worldwide Women's Network. She travels to more countries in a month than most families visit in their lifetimes. A fire forces Robin and her cat Louise Bryant to leave their East Village apartment. They move into a friend's apartment at SOHO's Chelsea Hotel.

    Robin has no time to mourn her loss of possessions. Instead, she immediately becomes involved with the problems of two eloping teenagers who are running from their menacing families. Dangerous looking thugs seem to line up the streets chasing after the runaways. Robin vows to keep them safe, not yet realizing the risk she will take for this wonderful cause.

    Robin is an interesting person who many readers will admire because she has a quirky charm that is beguiling. The entertaining heroine is zany, hip, quirky, and most important in this age of the disposable friendship, loyal. The story line is unusual, at times surreal, but always enjoyable as Robin co-stars with New York in the offbeat THE CHELSEA GIRL MURDERS. Sparkle Hayter lives up to her first name with this sparkling story that will appeal to urban amateur sleuth fans.
