What a fun story! Kept me guessing until the end.
I had some doubts about this book considering that the author is also an actress in daytime TV... Stupid me for even thinking such a thing! This book was amazing :)
I got sucked right into Alexis's world and family and friends so much so that I've already gotten the next book to read really soon. :)
Description from the publisher:
She's bold. She's beautiful. And she's about to go to jail for murder...
Soap opera actress Alexis Peterson has starred in the nation's top soap opera for almost 20 years. But her career takes a nose-dive when Marcy Blanchard is hired as the head writer. Little did Alexis realize that Marcy's been holding a grudge all these years and is ready to take her revenge.
So when Marcy turns up dead, bludgeoned to death with her Emmy®, no one is surprised that Alexis is the prime suspect. No one except Alexis, that is, who knows she has to take matters into her own hands if she wants to avoid being arrested for a crime she didn't commit and becoming the real killer's next victim..
