We’re thrilled to announce our latest Chicks’ release: Hollywood Homicide by our very own Kellye Garrett. Hollywood Homicide is the first book in the Detective by Day series — and Kellye’s debut novel! We couldn’t be more excited that the big day is finally here. Read on to learn more about it, or just go get your copy right now!
Here’s what it’s about:
Dayna Anderson doesn’t set out to solve a murder. All the semi-famous, mega-broke black actress wants is to help her parents keep their house. After witnessing a deadly hit-and-run, she figures pursuing the fifteen-grand reward isn’t the craziest thing a Hollywood actress has done for some cash.
But what starts as simply trying to remember a speeding car soon blossoms into a full-on investigation. As Dayna digs deeper into the victim’s life, she wants more than just reward money. She’s determined to find the poor woman’s killer too. When she connects the accident to a notorious Hollywood crime spree, Dayna chases down leads at paparazzi hot spots, celeb homes and movie premieres. She loves every second—until someone tries to kill her.
And there are no second takes in real life.
Here’s what people are saying about it:
“Fun, smart, endearingly flawed and impressively determined, Dayna Anderson is a heroine readers will fall in love with immediately. I relished every unexpected twist and turn of this highly entertaining mystery!”—Kyra Davis, New York Times bestselling author
“Hollywood Homicide has a heart as big as Los Angeles, a plot as twisty as the 110 Freeway and a heroine just as complex as the burger battle between In N Out and Fatburger. Kellye Garrett makes you laugh and then, hits you in the gut—like a great novelist should. Can’t wait for the next adventure with Garrett and Dayna Anderson!”—Rachel Howzell Hall, author of critically-acclaimed LAPD Detective Elouise Norton series
“There’s a spunky new sleuth in town: Dayna Anderson takes readers on a madcap ride through the underbelly of La La Land, laced with high fashion, Twitter feeds, celebrities—and murder!”—Lucy Burdette, author of the bestselling Key West Food Critic Mysteries
“Funny, twisty, compelling. Hollywood Homicide is the whole package . . . Who knew the seedy underbelly of show business could be this much fun?”—Max Wirestone, author of the Dahlia Moss mysteries
