About Killer Getaway: Holly, Joe, Bootsie and Kristin take a road trip to sunny Florida, and find themselves involved in another spate of crimes. While staying in the cushy town of Magnolia Beach, they also are right in the middle of a restaurant war between Chef Gianni and their friends Channing and Jessica. When someone almost runs down Holly with a wayward Chevy, and some bad clams threaten to shut down Channing’s new bistro, the friends band together to do some snooping, sleuthing, and of course have a few cocktails along the way.
Killer WASPs, the first book in the series, was published in September 2014 by HarperCollins’s Witness Impulse imprint, and is inspired by my love of classic Agatha Christie and P.G. Wodehouse novels… with a modern twist!
About the series:
Crime really stings in Killer WASPs.
Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania, is a haven for East Coast WASPs, where tennis tournaments and cocktails at the club are revered traditions. Little happens in the sleepy suburb, and that is the way the Lilly Pulitzer–clad residents prefer it. So when antiques store owner Kristin Clark and her portly basset hound stumble upon the area’s newest real estate developer lying unconscious beneath the hydrangea bushes lining the driveway of one of Bryn Mawr’s most distinguished estates, the entire town is abuzz with gossip and intrigue.
When the attacker strikes again just days later, Kristin and her three best friends—Holly, a glamorous chicken nugget heiress with a penchant for high fashion; Joe, a decorator who’s determined to land his own HGTV show; and Bootsie, a preppy but nosy newspaper reporter—join forces to solve the crime. While their investigation takes them to cocktail parties, flea markets, and the country club, they must unravel the mystery before the assailant claims another victim.
Fans of Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum series will enjoy shaking up the Philadelphia Main Line.
If you love cocktails, antiquing, parties, shopping and the occasional crime-lite thrown in amid vodka tonics and tennis matches at the club, I think you’ll love Killer WASPs. The first in a series, Killer WASPS features crime, romance, and fun amid the classic estates of Philadelphia’s Main Line.
Thank you for reading!
