4.0 out of 5 stars A brainless bimbo free myster/romance..., 28 Aug. 2013
By 
This review is from: Down and Out in Beverly Heels (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Actress Meg had a hit TV show, large house, a wardrobe full of designer clothes, and a fantastic husband in Paul. But after just one year of marriage Paul disappears, taking Meg's money - and half of Hollywood's behind-the-scenes power players fortunes too.

The book starts with following Meg as she returns to Hollywood after a year of hiding her head after people believed that she was involved with her husband's big con, she is now living in her car and trying to restart her career to earn herself desperately needed money. Unfortunately her return makes it easy for everyone to find her; threatening goons who want her to tell them where her husband is, and the FBI who also still believe that she was in on the big con. Can Meg really trust her remaining friends and potential love interest FBI agent Jack, or do they really want her to go down for something that she didn't do too?

Meg feels as though she has no option but to find Paul, to prove her innocence...

***

What made this book more enjoyable for me, over other books of this subgenre, was that I was able to see why Meg choose to turn into Sherlock. In 'female sleuth' mysteries I usually become annoyed with the leads for being nosy when they turn into amuter detective and place themselves in danger almost immediatly. Also for a plot that has a strong dash of romance in Meg isn't in constant 'damsel in distress' mode either. The best part is that I was never confident in telling who was lying, or in guessing how everything would end.

I've removed a star because the story is pretty slow to really start moving anywhere, and I didn't care for the number of times that Meg flashes back to the year before the book starts, to look back on things around Paul and Jack. But apart from that I really enjoyed this book.
