Judgment at Santa Monica (Hardcover)
Hollywood stars, sunshine, stabbings . . . New Jersey prosecutor turned LA family lawyer Sandy Moss is back with a bang in the second book in this fun, witty and fast-paced cosy legal mystery series.The last person family lawyer Sandy Moss expects to walk into her courtroom, right in the middle of a trial, is TV star Patrick McNabb: prime suspect in her first (and she hopes, last) murder case. Sandy knows what Patrick's like. Friendly, overconfident, dazzlingly handsome . . . and a well-meaning menace. But his request seems harmless enough. His dear friend Cynthia is getting divorced, and he thinks Sandy's perfect for the job. She accepts - because he's Patrick and there is no denying him. But of course it's not that simple. Soon Sandy's tangled up in yet another murder - and Patrick, who's currently playing a private detective on TV, believes he's essential to solving the whole thing . . . Fast-paced, funny and larger than life, with a joy of a protagonist who could give Perry Mason a run for his money (Kirkus Reviews), JUDGMENT AT SANTA MONICA is a perfect escapist read and a great choice for fans of legal mysteries and TV shows.
