Kit Wilder is all washed up at the ripe old age of twenty-three. Blackballed by the producers of her hit TV show, she returns home to the affluent town of Westdale, chock full of Mayflower descendants, to enroll in college and lead a quiet life...until she discovers a skeleton in her house.

Kit quickly finds herself embroiled in a murder investigation led by the handsome detective, Romeo Moretti.  With the help of her new neighbors, Kit channels her former character, hotshot detective Ellie Gold, in order to solve the murder so she can get back to renovating her house and avoiding the Mayflower Madam, who also happens to be her hypercritical, gin-swilling mother.

    Delightful tale of young actress forced from Hollywood due to reporting sexual misconduct, made even more poignant in light of recent “Me Too” events.
  • Character Not to my Liking

    By Plonk'r
    The main character, Kit, seemed to be too self-centered, too cutesy for my taste. Additionally, the plot did not seem to hang together , and was very unrealistic. Miss Marple she was not.

    Didn't love it
  • book in search of an editor

    By a careful reader
    I’m not sure if this book was self-published but if it actually was produced by a publishing house they are in bad need of editors. Missing words, jumps without transition — and it took several chapters before the author even bothered to tell readers that Westlake was in Pennsylvania, rather than in England or California, making for very confused reading.

    Enjoyed the read, especially liked the line from Thora about her new pillow...the packaging said it (the pillow) posed no threat to her health. Looking forward to reading The Deep End.

    The book was an easy read. I liked the characters,some young some old. A nice mix. Lots of dialogue and not too much description of the characters. Short,but nice ending. Will read book in the series.
