Book Description

A Cold Case And A Hot Detective

A cold case heats up when the handsome detective, Frank Fontana, asks for Jessica Huntington's help. Who killed his cousin Kelly? Does Jessica want to know the truth about her high school friend's tragic death?

˃˃˃ Can She Handle What Digging Into The Past Might Reveal?
Jessica hopes Bernadette's right as she races headlong into Kelly's troubled past. Believed to be the victim of a hit-and-run accident in Palm Springs, the investigation into Kelly's death had quickly grown cold. Now more than a decade later, a lowlife meth addict claims to have witnessed her death and swears: "It weren't no accident! It was on purpose."

˃˃˃ Searching For Answers
Why would anyone have done such a thing to the 19-year-old, auburn-haired beauty with a voice like an angel and a streak of wild? Join Jessica and her friends as they try to figure out whodunit and why!

˃˃˃ Jessica Huntington is back in her second mystery by USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author, Anna Celeste Burke.

“A twisted tale of intrigue kept me up late at night to finish this book. This mystery will lead your thoughts in different directions while trying to guess the author's intent and solve it in your mind. Jessica Huntington is a clever lady that doesn't suffer fools lightly and she surrounds herself with interesting friends that keep the story moving. Add the setting of Palm Desert and you will want to join her as the story unfolds. I enjoyed the read very much.”

“A Dead Sister” by Anna Burke is an excellent follow up to her “Dead Husband”. Jessica Huntington has a lot on her plate, especially after her last adventure. In this novel she looks into the death of one of her friends who dies in a mysterious accident 14 years ago. The book balances her private issues, such as the broken down marriage, and her intimate connection to the victim well, making for a very personal and heart felt investigation, which lends the story more gravity and power. Jessica is a great lead character with strong emotions, thoughtful and clever whose circumstances show that money and looks still won’t necessarily buy you happiness. But she has good people around her and she won’t quit until she finds out the truth. The detective part is well written and at times very compelling. A must for fans of detective novels with interesting settings and fascinating characters. Very recommendable.

Building beautifully on the first book (A Dead Husband), this one adds depth to the characters, especially Jessica, who is revealed as generous, caring, self-effacing, and vulnerable. A must read series.
