What could get worse then losing your job because you blew the whistle on your company's accounting practice? Pink Pearl is an auditor who knows all about that after working at her old accounting firm. Her real name is Whitney Pearl, but not a lot of people call her that. Well, for Pearl it is accepting a pity job from her mom. Yep, she not only loses her job but also has to go before the senate finance committee to bring forth the evidence she has or she will lose the immunity she has currently. But she has a problem, she doesn't have any of the evidence anymore; it was all stolen and the last piece was bought at a yard sale, stuck in a box under a doll.

Now Pearl is working for her momís CPA firm. Her current boss is Sam, and he has given her a pipe deal to try to figure out. Only things are not going as she planned. It seems there is a stalker who is leaving her dog doo and calling her during the night. Pearl isn't too frightened of him. She isn't sure why, but the dog doo just doesn't scare her.

Pearl seems to have a few people that are after her, romantically. One is the senator presiding over the committee, Senator Santorelli, another is her new lawyer Ed, and of course her boss. Just what is a woman to do with so many men and of course, I forgot an ex-boyfriend, an ex-boyfriend who lives in town. Pearl has to get in contact with him concerning the pipe deal she is handling.

It seems every day is a trial for Pearl. If she isn't being shot at, trying to be abducted, or the dog doo guy isn't trying to scare her, then she must try to juggle the men in her life. She canít quite shun the senator and of course she has feelings for Ed but she's not quite sure about Sam.

Show Her the Money is the debut book from Stephanie Feagan. She gives us quite a few laughs throughout the book. Pearl seems to have her hands full with all that is going on in her life, but she canít keep herself out of trouble. The characters are full of life and bubble over with wit and charm. A few are just trouble makers, but that makes it all the more fun to read and see just what will happen next. It seems Pearl is in for more rides along the way as we will see her again and a few other characters in Sheís On The Money.

If you want to spend a few hours with a smile on your face and relish groaning now and then about what Pearl is up to and the trouble she seems to find, then pick up a copy of Show Her The Money.
