All that glitters… is sometimes blood. With her golden ticket buried in the ground, can she save a wrongly accused teen from the gallows?
Hollywood, 1924. Promoted to lead costume designer of a star-studded film, Grace Michelle should be on top of the world. But between her husband’s debt, her sister’s recent death, and the troubled teenaged 

girl she’s fostering, she’s struggling to please everyone and still keep a smile on her face. And when a Tinseltown shindig turns deadly, Grace is horrified to discover her young charge unconscious alongside the director’s grisly corpse.

Determined to prove the girl’s innocence, Grace’s own haunted past fills her sleep with prophetic nightmares. And no sooner has she sought clarity from a medium than a second body lands the scared teenager in the slammer.

Can Grace turn the camera on the real culprit before another victim ends up on the cutting room floor?

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK 

I have read several books by Kari Bovee and have loved them, and this was is possible her best read yet. Grace has her hands full with so many different jobs she has on her plate, I think possibly the young somewhat fiesty beautiful young girl she has taken in to hopefully use the horses on their ranch to help her and keep her out of trouble. But it seems her beauty and personality gets her into more trouble than ever. I love the horse ranch setting and troubled teens. The vivid details about the costumes Grace is in charge of for the films, Bovée does amazing research before writing this book. The history is so deep and I found myself emerged in all of the history here. The elements of foster homes is touched here, and my heart goes out to Grace as she strives to continue her search for her sister’s murderer. Added to Grace’s sister’s murder she is now faced with the murder mystery that plaques them now, and believe me, this will all keep your mind spinning until the very last page. Bovée has written an excellent story in her unique professional way that will stay with readers until her next book. There is so much going on in this book, and add the texts and turns Bove throws in and wow! This is one you don’t want to miss. With a mixture of historical fiction and adding in the murder mystery and everything taking place. I think you are sure to love this one. And I am surely giving Grace in Hollywood Five Stars and I really wish I could give it more! Go put now and get your copy!

Book Description:

 

A ghost from her past. Her sister murdered. Can Grace slay her demons and find the killer before she ends up dead? 

New York City, 1920. Grace Michelle has everything she wants: a home, a family, and a future career as a costume designer for famed showman Florenz Ziegfeld, Jr.’s Ziegfeld Follies. Pretty good for a girl who once lived on the streets of New York City. But when her sister, Sophia, the star of the show, is murdered, Grace’s safe and protected life is shattered.

Battle-scarred by the war and emotionally scarred by his past, Chet Riker has made it a practice to keep his distance from 

others; love, after all, leads only to pain. But Chet has a problem—a big one: he’s become indebted to mob-boss Joe Marciano in an attempt to save his estranged mother’s life, and Marciano wants him to pay up or else. Desperate to get the money, he contacts former client Florenz Ziegfeld for work.

Soon, Chet finds himself playing bodyguard for introverted Grace, who has reluctantly agreed to be Ziegfeld’s new leading lady—on the condition that Ziegfeld promises to find Sophia’s killer. Upon meeting Grace, Chet quickly finds his hardened theory that love equals pain tested. Grace, meanwhile, is swept up in a life she never wanted as the Follies’ star, and as the pawn in a series of publicity stunts during a transcontinental train trip to California that puts her life at risk. Who would want her and Sophia dead? Together, she and Chet must confront publicity-hungry Florenz Ziegfeld, power-driven Joe Marciano, and their own pasts to find Sophia’s killer—and let themselves love once again.
