When a top Hollywood Agent is found poisoned in the bathtub of her home suspicion quickly turns to one of her two nieces. But Carol Childs, a reporter for a local talk radio station doesn’t believe it. The suspect is her neighbor and friend, and also her primary source for insider industry news. When a media frenzy pits one niece against the other—and the body count starts to rise—Carol knows she must save her friend from being tried in courts of public opinion.
But even the most seasoned reporter can be surprised, and when a Hollywood psychic shows up in Carol’s studio one night and warns her there will be more deaths, things take an unexpected turn. Suddenly nobody is above suspicion. Carol must challenge both her friendship and the facts, and the only thing she knows for certain is the killer is still out there and the closer she gets to the truth, the more danger she’s in.
Carol Childs is a radio reporter in Hollywood. When her neighbor Sam finds her famous aunt dead and, along with her twin sister, Sarah, is suspected of the crime, Carol gets involved. The twins are at odds with each other and Carol works to show her friend is innocent even as she is faced with facts that might indicate otherwise. Powerful people, friends, and scandal. The character of Misty Dawns adds a paranormal twist to this cozy and causes Carol to question her own beliefs about the people she considers friends.
Carol is a likable lead character with depth, and the other characters are also well-developed. There is a bit of everything including romance. Silverman keeps the story moving, sometimes nudged a bit by Misty. An enjoyable read. I'll be looking forward to the sequel.
