Looks to Die For

A Lacy Fields Mystery

About The Book


As the wife of a prominent Beverly Hills plastic surgeon, a dedicated mother of three, and an absolutely fabulous decorator to the stars, Lacy Fields is stunned to the tips of her Chanel-manicured toenails the night the police barge into her house and haul her husband off in handcuffs. Outraged that her handsome Dan is accused of murdering a young wannabe actress, Lacy discovers that her talent for hunting heirlooms can also help her chase a clever killer.

Lacy is sure her husband has been wrongly accused—but how can she explain his mysterious behavior? Known as the Saint of Hollywood for his skill with a scalpel, Dan seems to be keeping a secret or two.

Along with her best friend, hot L.A. casting agent Molly Archer, Lacy shadows suspects ranging from a sleazy network TV star to an advertising exec who shoots Super Bowl commercials set on the moon. After she stumbles onto a George Clooney movie set clad only in La Perla lace underwear, Lacy learns she could be the killer's next victim...
