Book Summary

As the wife of a prominent Beverly Hills plastic surgeon, a dedicated mother of three, and an absolutely fabulous decorator to the stars, Lacy Fields is stunned to the tips of her Chanel-manicured toenails the night the police barge into her house and haul her husband off in handcuffs. With her handsome Dan accused of murdering a young wannabe actress named Tasha Barlow, Lacy turns her talent from tracking down priceless antique furniture to chasing a clever killer.

With her best friend Molly Archer, a hot L.A. casting agent, at her side, Lacy tracks suspects ranging from a sleazy network TV star to an advertising exec who shoots Super Bowl commercials set on the moon. Is Tasha's loyal hometown friend really an enemy? Did an ex-con from her past return to destroy Tasha's new life? Lacy Fields will stop at nothing to protect her family -- whether it's searching for the person who framed her husband or keeping the black hair dye away from her fourteen-year-old daughter.

Media Reviews

Starred Review. Suspense fans looking for frothy, wacky fun will be well rewarded." - PW

"Though the mystery is a little thin, Lacy makes for an engaging detective who could easily work another case. It's a good thing Kaplan has a sequel in the works." - Library Journal

"There's an actual mystery buried deep in the bowels of this Perils-of-Pauline-in-Prada for those as determined as Lacy to find it. " - Kirkus.
