Description

And the award goes to...

...Dayna Anderson, the semi-famous actress turned PI who steps up her sleuthing swagger in this follow-up to breakout hit Hollywood Homicide, winner of the Lefty Award and the Agatha Award for Best First Novel!

Tinseltown's awards season is in full swing, and everyone is obsessed with dressing up, scoring free swag, and getting invited to the biggest awards shows of the year. But when celebrity publicist Lyla Davis is killed, the festive mood comes to an abrupt halt.

Apprentice private eye Dayna Anderson thinks she's uncovered the killer. Unfortunately, what starts as an open-and-shut case turns out to be anything but. Diving deeper into the investigation, Dayna gets a backstage look at gossip blogging, Hollywood royalty, and one of entertainment's most respected awards shows—all while trying to avoid her own Hollywood ending.

        June 15, 2018
        An oddly assembled crew digs into the depths of Hollywood's elite in an effort to solve crimes for cash.Still savoring the sweet taste of success from her last case, which netted her $1,000 (Hollywood Homicide, 2018), Dayna Anderson's ready to continue her crime-solving streak. Or, at the very least, her money-earning streak, which is especially welcome since she hasn't worked as an actress since her Chubby's Chicken commercial almost two years ago. Dayna's near-accidental path as an amateur detective and bounty hunter for the LAPD tip line is bolstered by her friendship with uncharismatic, unromantic Aubrey S. Adams-Parker, an ex-cop who backs up Dayna's Hollywood hunches with law and order. The real fun begins when Dayna teams up with her friends as sidekicks. Sienna's determined to make it as an Instagram star; Emme's a computer whiz with maybe too much time on her hands. Dayna's latest case is the fatal shooting of Lyla Davis, a publicist for the Silver Sphere Organization. While Lyla's death looks like collateral damage in an ATM holdup, Dayna's savvy and digging suggest that someone could have wanted to keep a secret Lyla was in on. Dayna knows Hollywood secrets all too well. After all, she's been living one ever since she hooked up with childhood friend Omari Grant, whose publicist doesn't want it getting around that Omari's with some average girl. But Dayna's sleuthing and ad hoc team make her anything but average, and she cuts to the truth around Lyla's death quickly but without thinking about the ramifications that secrets kill.Though sometimes there's so much going on that you lose sight of the high-stakes main event, Garrett continues to build an appealingly quirky crime-solving team.

        June 25, 2018
        Agatha-winner Garrett’s delightful sequel to 2017’s Hollywood Homicide finds former L.A. actress Dayna “Day” Anderson, who was the spokesperson for Chubby’s Chicken until a photographer caught her eating something other than one of the fast-food franchise’s two-piece combo deals, struggling to launch her career as a private investigator. Day has had some modest success working with a PI who turns out to be unlicensed, but it’s not enough to pay her bills. A chance to really prove herself comes along when Hollywood publicist Lyla Davis is fatally shot at an ATM early one morning on La Brea Blvd. Day soon realizes that the apparent botched robbery was a set-up, and she and sidekick Sienna follow the clues to infamous celebrity gossip Anani Miss. The Lucy-and-Ethel-like antics of Day and Sienna provide plenty of laughs, but readers will also enjoy watching Day as she develops her sleuthing skills, including savvy social media tactics. Garrett, who wrote for TV’s Cold Case, brings a smart insider’s view of contemporary Hollywood to this lighthearted series. Agent: Michelle Richter, Fuse Literary.

        After solving a hit-and-run case, former commercial spokesperson Dayna Anderson hopes to become an apprentice to cop-turned-private investigator Aubrey Adams-Parker. She thinks she's found the perfect case when Lyla Davis, spokesperson for the upcoming Silver Sphere Awards event, is killed at an ATM. Dayna's boyfriend, hot actor Omari Grant, had been at the ATM just minutes earlier. Teaming up with best friend Sienna Hayes, a reality star wannabe, and using her wiles and connections to probe the social media secrets of Hollywood's biggest stars, Dayna's soon caught up in the gossip, all the while urging Aubrey to become a licensed PI so she can continue her own adventures. Yet Dayna's schemes are sidetracked when she realizes she's picked the wrong person as the killer. VERDICT Following the Agatha Award-winning debut, Hollywood Homicide, with Garrett's Tinseltown expertise adding to the fun and humor, Dayna continues her escapades with the help of quirky friends and a mysterious man known only as Z. Fans of Janet Evanovich's "Stephanie Plum" series will feel right at home.--Lesa Holstine, Evansville Vanderburgh P.L., IN
