This is by far my favorite series by this author! How could you not love to read about all the trouble Jessica and her friend's get into and out of. They are all such characters. My favorite is Saint Bernadette who manages to always keep most every one in line. But even she has her limits and will attack or go on the offensive if provoked.

Jessica really is having a hard time of it--her EX is being tried for murder (not that she really cares) but her boss is his defense attorney. Her mother nearly dies of an overdose and has to undergo chemo. And then the mother of a friend is found murdered!! Oh how she is starting to want to go on a spending spree with her American Express Black Card, But she promised her priest that she would try to stop this particular addiction--

She ends up taking care of the woman's Poodle Pup (a very large one!) and you will love this poodle as do all her friends and Bernadette. What a smart, sweet and loving dog. Amazingly her friend is afraid of the dog which is why he ends up at Jessica's place. The pup brings some comic relief putting it mildly!

There are so many suspects in the murder of Alexis and even I was surprised at what and why and who was behind it. This one will keep you reading non stop. I actually stayed up way past my bedtime to finish it (much to my cat's distress!)

This can be read as a stand alone but I think you will want to read them all!


About the Book: (from Amazon)

Jessica Huntington is back in the fourth Desert Cities Mystery by USA Today bestselling author, Anna Celeste Burke.

Jessica’s ex-husband, James Harper, and her mother, Alexis, are in big trouble in A Dead Mother. Family dysfunction, infidelity, murder, and mayhem—what else can you expect from members of the rich and famous who move in Jessica Huntington’s circles? An arraignment in court goes off the rails after Jim Harper’s Bel Air mansion is trashed and a man is left fighting for his life. Jessica’s love life almost veers off track, too, as she struggles to balance job, family, sleuthing, and her attraction to Attorney Paul Worthington and Detective Frank Fontana. When the body of a prominent member of the Palm Desert community is found dead on the side of the road, Jessica gives up hope that this year will be better than the last. It’s a three-ring-circus of calamities as Jessica and her friends get pulled into another whirlwind whodunit. There are plenty of well-heeled heels to choose from among the suspects with murderous motives: love, lust, lucre, and loathing.

Life is an extravaganza! figuring out how to hang tough and make the most of the wild ride is the challenge.

On my way to Oahu to join the rock musician and high school drop-out I had met in San Diego and married in Tijuana, I was nabbed by the police as a runaway. When the police let me go and the rock band broke up, my husband and I had to find another way to survive. Our next stop: Disney World where we trained to be chefs, courtesy of the Walt Disney World University. A GED for my husband and many more years of education landed us in academia at The Ohio State University. Retired now from my role as a professor in social work and behavioral science, I have picked up a long-time interest in writing fiction. I'm still married to the same sweet guy and live with him in the Palm Springs area. In addition to reading and writing fiction, I enjoy painting, hiking, hanging out with my handsome husband and tending to my Siamese kitties.

An award-winning and bestselling author I enjoy snooping into life's mysteries with fun, fiction, & food—California style! My books include the Jessica Huntington Desert Cities Mystery series set in the Coachella Valley near Palm Springs, the Corsario Cove Cozy Mystery series set on California’s Central Coast, and The Georgie Shaw Cozy Mystery series set in Orange County, California--the OC. Coming soon: The Misadventures of Betsy Stark also set here in the Coachella Valley. Find out more at http://www.desertcitiesmystery.com.

It’s a three-ring-circus of calamities as Jessica and her friends get pulled into another whirlwind whodunit. There are plenty of well-heeled heels to choose from among the suspects with murderous motives: Jessica's back and so are her "CAT PACK" friends. Plus, a lovely poodle joins in the mix, too. I hope you'll read and enjoy the book as much as I enjoyed writing it. Thanks for sponsoring the giveaway, Michele. Good luck, all! Anna
