Moore follows Woman Strangled–News at Ten with another twisty and satisfying romantic thriller. Dallas news anchor Aspen Wicklow is ready to start her new job at WBFD-TV just as soon as she gets out of jail for felony charges incurred while shooting a coyote that was attacking her pug. When she makes bail, her boss sends her to investigate a haunted house, accompanied by intern Dainty Prescott (heroine of Moore’s Deb on Arrival–Live at Five). Meanwhile, Aspen’s sweetheart, prickly sheriff Spike Granger, tries to prepare for the next election while keeping an old friend of his from breaking out of jail. Lively and funny, the adventure moves along at a rapid clip, with plenty of action, entertaining side characters, and sharp dialogue. (July)

Deb on Arrival -- Live at Five by Laurie Moore

Advance praise for Deb on Arrival—Live at Five:

“DEB ON ARRIVAL—LIVE AT FIVE is delicious, inhabited by characters you love to hate and characters you love to love—notably Dainty Prescott, the most cheerfully flawed heroine since Scarlett O’Hara. She’s a train wreck you can’t look away from. Laurie Moore writes with talent, wit and an “only in Texas” sensibility that’s irresistible!”

Harley Jane Kozak, Agatha, Anthony, and Macavity Award–winning novelist of A Date You Can’t Refuse

WANTED DEAD OR ALIVE--A DEBUTANTE MYSTERY now available from Five Star August 2011!

At the start of Moore's superlative sequel to 2010's Deb on Arrival, former debutante Dainty Prescott resolves to drop her TV intern job for the moment and head for Mexico, against the advice of her new boyfriend, Det. Jim Bruckman of the Fort Worth, Tex., PD, to rescue two current debutantes. Dainty's sister, Teensy, has been robbed and beaten by thugs in Ciudad Juárez, "the murder capital of Mexico," and Teensy's friend, Tiffer, has disappeared. In El Paso, Dainty finds an unlikely ally in an undersized police detective, Lt. Amanda Vázquez, who goes by the "street name" Canary Tanzanite. South of the border, Dainty and Amanda--sharp-witted, funny, and occasionally kooky--make an unlikely duo as they encounter killers, kidnappers, and crooked cops at every turn. Moore will keep readers on their most stylish toes as they follow fashionista Dainty in her pursuit of the surprising truth.
