I am beyond excited to participate in the cover reveal for the first book in Kellye Garrett’s Detective by Day Series. HOLLYWOOD HOMICIDE follows actress-turned-reluctant-sleuth, Dayna Anderson, as she tries to earn a bit of extra cash by finding the person responsible for a hit and run accident.
This book combines two of my very favorite things: an insider’s view of Hollywood and a page-turning mystery. There’s a bit more about the book below, along with preorder links. But first, let’s take a look at HOLLYWOOD HOMICIDE’s gorgeous cover.
Woohoo! That is one gorgeous cover!! And now, here’s more about HOLLYWOOD HOMICIDE:
Book 1 in the Detective By Day Series
Publisher: Midnight Ink
Release Date: August 8, 2017
Dayna Anderson doesn’t set out to solve a murder. All the semi-famous, mega-broke black actress wants is to help her parents keep their house. After witnessing a deadly hit-and-run, she figures pursuing the fifteen-grand reward isn’t the craziest thing a Hollywood actress has done for some cash.
But what starts as simply trying to remember a speeding car soon blossoms into a full-on investigation. As Dayna digs deeper into the victim’s life, she wants more than just reward money. She’s determined to find the poor woman’s killer too. When she connects the accident to a notorious Hollywood crime spree, Dayna chases down leads at paparazzi hot spots, celeb homes and movie premieres. She loves every second—until someone tries to kill her.
And there are no second takes in real life.
About Kellye Garrett
Kellye Garrett spent 8 years working in Hollywood, including a stint writing for the CBS drama Cold Case. People were always surprised to learn what she did for a living—probably because she seemed way too happy to be brainstorming ways to murder people. A former magazine editor, Kellye holds a B.S. in magazine writing from Florida A&M and an MFA in screenwriting from USC’s famed film school. Having moved back to her native New Jersey, she spends her mornings commuting to Manhattan for her job at a leading media company—while still happily brainstorming ways to commit murder. Her first novel, Hollywood Homicide, will be released by Midnight Ink in August 2017. It’s the first book in the Detective by Day series.
You can pre-order the e-book and print edition on Amazon.
Thanks so much for stopping by for the reveal and be sure to preorder your copy of HOLLYWOOD HOMICIDE!
