Summary

The grits are about to hit the fan.

The Golden Girls meets Married to the Mob in this madcap mystery series packed with Mafioso-style mayhem and a generous dollop of Southern-style sarcasm. 

When wannabe actress Doreen Diller takes a job with her celebrity crush, his new acting gig takes them on location to St. Petersburg, Florida. What awaits Doreen in the Sunshine State will seal her fate—in the form of a role she didn't see coming and a family she didn't bargain for. 

New from the author of the Val Fremden Midlife Mystery Series. 

She took a stab at stardom. It stabbed back.

A celebrity crush leads to Mafioso-style mayhem in this madcap adventure sure to satisfy fans of cozy mysteries and women’s fiction alike. 

Doreen Diller wants to be a movie star. But after 15 years of failed auditions, she’s yet to garner a single callback from a Hollywood producer. Determined to hit the big time before she turns 40, she pins her hopes on a job assisting soap opera heartthrob Tad Longmire. He could be the answer to her dreams—or the beginning of her nightmares. 

While filming a new TV series starring Tad, a stabbing death rocks the set. Unfortunately for Doreen, the role of murder suspect is finally one she appears ideally suited to play. With a homicide rap threatening to curtain both her and her acting career, Doreen is forced to seek help from an oddball assortment of friends and family she’s only just met. As she scrambles to clear her name, it’s not long before she discovers that when it comes to showbiz, everybody’s working their own angle—and the only type of restraint her newfound family practices usually involves zip-ties.

Enjoyed the book and can't wait for the next one

I thought this book was awesome and I am excited to see book 2. When is it coming out?? It's a light hearted mystery with likeable characters. Needs a little romance though.

Just like Janet Evonovich

This book was great. Super funny which is always good. The characters are great. Main character isn’t a push over. She doesn’t take any crap. Narrator is also 5 star. Hope she keeps this series going.
