What a way to start a new job! Olivia Wright started a new job as a ghostwriter for the actress Margot Farr by trying to solve her murder. Olivia knows that the murderer was someone who would suffer from Margot's weight gain, possibly her personal chef, her personal trainer, her manager, or even her daughter. Olivia seeks the help of her own daughter, who is a caterer, to get the inside track of Margot's personal life. Olivia does finally find out who killed Margot and for what reasons.

The story takes place in Las Vegas and it was nice that the portrayal of casinos did not overwhelm the scenery. The plot line goes along very smoothly and is very easy to understand. The story moves quickly so the reader is not bored. The characters and story line are enjoyable; the ending is quick and understandable.

Overall, this is a great book and it grabs you right from the first page. Even though Margot was characterized as a selfish actress, you want to find out who murdered her and you hope that Olivia gets the killer. This is a great piece of work by Ms. Baughman!
