      Summary: Dayna Anderson doesn't set out to solve a murder. All the semi-famous, mega-broke actress wants is to help her parents keep their house. So after witnessing a deadly hit-and-run, she pursues the fifteen grand reward. But Dayna soon finds herself doing a full-on investigation, wanting more than just money she wants justice for the victim. She chases down leads at paparazzi hot spots, celeb homes, and movie premieres, loving every second of it until someone tries to kill her. And there are no second takes in real life.

Actress Dayna Anderson's 15 minutes of fame as the spokesperson for Chubby's Chicken, and her notable catchphrase "Don't think so, boo" are gone—as is her money. Job hunting is painfully unsuccessful and frequently compounded by her inability to cash in on her almost recognition factor. In dire need, Dayna latches onto the idea that she can claim the $15,000 reward for helping to solve a deadly hit-and-run accident that she witnessed. She starts digging around with the help of her friend (self-proclaimed future reality star) Sienna. Dayna is quickly hooked on the investigation, which seems to be connected to an infamous Hollywood crime spree, taking her from Hollywood hot spots to movie premieres. Then someone tries to kill her. TV writer Garrett (Cold Case) makes a smart, sassy debut, introducing an appealing protagonist with amusing friends who deliver one-liners and toss back drinks while solving the case. VERDICT Sure to be a hit with readers looking for a fresh new sleuth who isn't afraid to go to Tinsel Town. [See Jessica Moyer's Mystery Spotlight "Novel Crime Scenes," LJ 4/15/17.]—ACT

Hard-up, semiretired actress Dayna "Day" Anderson, the appealing narrator of Garrett's winning first novel and series launch, runs out of gas one day at a stoplight on an L.A. street. While pondering what to do next, she notices a billboard offering a $15,000 reward for information on the hit-and-run murder of aspiring actress Haley Joseph. Day, who realizes she passed by the scene of Haley's death some weeks earlier, decides it's time to turn private eye in an effort to work her way out of debt and save her parents' house from foreclosure. She wrangles assistance from her two best friends—flashy Sienna, a reality star in training, and no-nonsense Emme, the identical twin sister of Hollywood's biggest star. In the course of her investigation, Day comes to care more about catching the killer than earning the reward. A former magazine editor who's contributed to TV's Cold Case, Garrett writes with humor and insight about the Hollywood scene. Readers will look forward to Day's further adventures. Agent: Michelle Richter, Fuse Literary. (Aug.)
