Set in: California and Mexico (briefly)
Summary: From brunch in Bel Air to homeless in Hollywood…
Former actress Meg Barnes used to have it all: tony Beverly Hills address, Amex Black card, Manolos for every day of the month. Not to mention a career as a popular TV detective that made her glittering life possible. But her lifestyle of the rich and famous has turned into a reality show for d-listed starlets. Lost in her Louboutins, she has one man to thank: her con man of a husband.
Handsome FBI agent Jack Mitchell knows a suspect when he sees one—even if she’s as beautiful and gutsy as Meg. Meg’s ex “made off” with half of Hollywood’s wealth in an epic real estate scam. And Jack thinks Meg may have been involved.
Determined to prove her innocence Meg teams up with her quirky, movie-mad best friend to track down her fugitive husband and exact justice. But getting her life, and her career, back on track is harder than auditioning for Spielberg. Especially when her life is threatened. Meg has to trust Jack, the man who may want her behind bars…or as his leading lady for life.
This was a fun book. It took me a little while to get through but once I really had an opportunity to dive in, I really started to enjoy it.
I love books that the main character is a “fictional” famous person and this one was just like the other books. This was a fun twist because Meg once famous is now homeless and living out of her car. She is also dealing with the crap her dead beat husband is putting her through.
The story was fun and kept me guessing until the very end. The book is set through California and in the end Mexico. So if you are on your way to visit LA, this might be a book for you to consider reading before you go, because it will get you good and ready to go.
I can’t tell too much of the plot because it will give it away, but believe me you really need to read the entire book to get the full story. It has been a long time since I read a book that kept me guessing the entire time.
