Summary

When Catherine Cooper settles in the Hamptons on the heels of a nasty split from her long-time husband, the luxurious coastal community seems like the perfect place to get back on track in style. But as Cat soon discovers, starting fresh on the East End can be deadly....    

Cat Cooper never imagined selling off her in-demand marketing firm would mean going from the pinnacle of success to a walking hot mess. Gouged from an unexpected divorce, Cat suddenly finds herself struggling through a new career as a business-savvy life coach for the hopelessly adrift in East Hampton and contending with Heather Holland - a spiteful neighbor who will do anything to bully her out of town. But her second act may very well continue behind bars when Heather's dead body turns up next to a shattered punchbowl...and Cat's pinned as the murderer.   

But given Heather's mean girl reputation, any one of the guests at her invite-only luncheon could have committed the crime before planting Cat's punchbowl next to the body. Determined not to trade designer duds for an unflattering prison jumpsuit, Cat sides with her best friend Gilley to scour chic boutiques and oceanfront mansions in search of the criminal who framed her. With a stoic detective looking to get her in cuffs, it's up to Cat to catch the real killer and land on her feet once again....

A good read.

I have a feeling there's a love triangle looming in the future, I'm not a fan of love triangles, I find them pointless and tedious, that being said the story is a good one, the culprit is a surprise. I loved Cat when she was in the Psychic Eye series, so I'm glad she got a series of her own. I hope through the series we find her finding herself even as she helps others fgind themselves. Enjoyed the characters. A good read, looking forward to reading some more 👍🏿

Great narrator

I loved the 2 characters from other book series by Victoria Laurie. A great new series. I just wish there was a Supernatural element to the story, hope this can be added to the series later on

5 stars is not enough

Victoria Laurie has outdone herself. I enjoyed the Psychic Detective series but thought the dialogue corny. Coached to Death has witty dialogue and engaging characters. The mystery is intriguing with several twists and turns. I really enjoyed this book and I look forward to the next one.

"Heroine" is a wimp

Too many tears! I usually like Ms. Laurie's books, but the lead character - Kat - in this book is not believable. She created a $50 million, multi-national corporation yet cries and shakes and can't get her wits about her in an emergency. Nope. Most of the story is fluff.

I don't like Kat

She was selfish and annoying in the way she acted about the investigation. Some of it was understandable but most of it was even illegal. The story itself was interesting and left plenty for more books. I'm just not sure I want more of Kat.

Glad I only spent $5 which still was too much. Premadonna idiots. I appreciate good mysteries but this is an insult to be called any thing but a comedy

I don’t buy the main character at all

I’ve read the Psychic Eye series where this character is mentioned several times and she is not the same. She’s not as awful as she is in the other series but she’s still not likable and I can’t buy that someone that’s so successful in business is so dumb about everything.

Love Victoria Laurie

I love that Abby’s sister got her own series and that Gilley is again in a series! I am still trying to love the narrator but she is definitely growing on me. Having Maks show up and tying series together even more is fantastic. Thank you for these fun books!
