Can You Start the Series in the Middle?
You can read this book as a stand alone and not feel left behind in any way. The first book in the series (Hollywood Homicideread my thoughts on it here) is a great story and really sets up Day as a protagonist. I would recommend you pick this one up as well.

Marie’s Thoughts

I liked this book even more than the first in the series (and I really enjoyed the first one). There were some fun twists and turns in this book that really kept me on my toes. I love being surprised in a cozy (it doesn’t happen all that often) and I was surprised in this one. Day is such a fun protagonist and you are cheering for her one minute and trying to shout through the pages for her to not do the silly thing she is about to do the next. The book leaves you with some questions and I cannot wait to see where this series goes next!
