ABOUT THE BOOK

 

When celebutante Dainty Prescott squanders a retainer from oil baron, Avery Marshall, she grudgingly grooms Avery's socially awkward stepdaughter, Dawn, for the upcoming, uber-exclusive Rubanbleu ball. Things go terribly wrong when the socialites witness a mass murder at a resort, causing four men in black ski masks to come after Dainty and her friends. While running from men who want them dead, Dainty discovers that Dawn is mentally ill and un-medicated, making Dawn just as dangerous at the men they're running from.

ABOUT THE BOOK

 

Dainty Prescott behaves as though she’s more concerned with one-upping her sister, Teensy, than solving a woman’s murder in Moore’s uneven third Debutante Detective mystery (after 2011’s Wanted Deb or Alive). Dainty, accompanied by her cross-dressing pygmy friend, Amanda Vásquez, returns home to Fort Worth, Tex., where she moves in with her challenging family and tries to reestablish her life, having been presumed dead after her misadventures in Mexico, chronicled in the previous series entry. As Dainty lackadaisically looks into the murder of the wife of her boss at WBFD-TV, Gordon Pfeiffer (who’s the main suspect), she also contends with unnerving threats from a stalker as well as the possibility of reuniting with her former lover, Jim Bruckman of the Fort Worth PD. The occasional amusing nugget of observation isn’t enough to sustain the incoherent narrative, as narcissistic Dainty hops from impulsive action to foolhardy shenanigan. ~ Publisher's Weekly

ABOUT THE BOOK

 

Twenty-three-year-old Dainty Prescott‚ indulged society girl‚ TCU graduate‚ WBFD-TV intern and last year’s debutante‚ finally has everything she desires — until an early morning phone call from an international operator sends her life spiraling out of control. Her younger sister Teensy‚ this year’s debutant, chartered a plane for Mexico with a friend after the Rubanbleu ball the previous night. Now Teensy’s in critical condition in a Ciudad Juÿrez hospital and her friend is missing. Their taxi turned out to be a gypsy cab — what’s known as the Kidnapping Express — and the Mexican police may be behind it. But before Dainty learns the name of Teensy’s hospital‚ the call gets disconnected.

 

As Dainty’s odyssey forces her further into the steamy underbelly of a poverty-stricken nation filled with drug smugglers‚ crooked cops‚ serial killers and human traffickers she’s pursued by a relentless man-in-black known as El Mortero — The Undertaker. Can a naïve socialite stay one step ahead of assorted killers and rescue her sister — and other innocent victims — while people are being gunned down all around her? And what does The Ladies’ Guide to Homicide have to do with the rescue?

ABOUT THE BOOK

 

Moore (Woman Strangled--News at Ten) smoothly mixes mystery, romance, and humor in this excellent first in a new series set in Fort Worth, Tex. When Texas Christian University student Dainty Prescott lands an unpaid internship with WBFD-TV, the station manager, Gordon Pfeiffer, tells her to spy on his wife, Paislee. To Dainty's dismay, Paislee turns out to be having an affair with Dainty's law school boyfriend and date for the Rubanbleu's debutante ball, Strayer Drexel Truett III. Next, a sorority sister asks the pampered princess to investigate her mom's very suspicious fiancé, and ditzy Dainty soon realizes being Nancy Drew is a lot more fun than being Diane Sawyer. Adding romantic heat is Det. Jim Bruckman, whom Dainty meets after running a red light. Bodaciously blunt and destined to learn from her mistakes (or not), this Jimmy Choo-wearing snoop hasn't even gotten her license yet, but if this initial outing is any indication, her next case should be another eye-opener.
