My Review:

This is a delightful cosy mystery with aspiring actress, Kendall Whitaker, with the starring role! She’s working as the personal assistant to the Marketing Director at Blossom Studios, hoping this will give her a way in to a significant role to give her a huge hand toward stardom. However, when her high school nemesis and a handsome leading man come into the Studios, Kendall never dreamt that her new role would involve discovering one of her colleagues murdered and her boss mysteriously disappeared! With a central role in the on-going drama, Kendall just can’t decide who to trust, though maybe the detective in charge of the investigation might have his own role in future? As someone is trying to destroy the studio, who will be the next victim – and why? Can Kendall keep herself safe?

This is a fun cosy mystery and easy to escape into with great characters and plenty of laughs as well as dramatic events before the murderer is revealed. It is the first story in a new series and I’ll certainly be looking out for future books in this series and by this author. There are laugh out loud escapades, plenty of twists and turns and a suspense-filled conclusion in this great read.

I requested and was gifted a copy of this book via NetGalley and this is my honest review after choosing to read it.

Synopsis:

Kendall Whitaker always longed for a starring role in a movie full of action, adventure, love, and murder. She just never thought she would be living in one.

An aspiring actress, Kendall left her normal life in Phoenix for the bright lights of Hollywood. She hoped taking a job as the assistant to the miserable Marketing Director at Blossom Studios would be her stepping-stone to stardom. When she finally gets her hands on an audition script, she refuses to let anything stand in her way. What she doesn’t expect is the return of her arch nemesis, the attention of a very dashing actor, or finding a dead body.

Before she knows it, Kendall finds herself embroiled in the mysterious events taking over the day-to-day activity at the studio. With each unfortunate incident—including the disappearance of her boss—Kendall is smack dab in the middle of it all and on the radar of the handsome detective in charge of the investigation. Could the answer be hidden in a recently canceled movie, or has the answer been in front of her the entire time?

Someone is set on destroying Blossom Studios, and they will do whatever it takes to succeed. Kendall must solve this mystery to prove her innocence and save her own life.
