Doggone it. This, my first novel, had a 5 star Amazon rating until someone wrote "Not my cup of tea". That brought it down to 4 stars. I'm sure it isn't everyone's cup of tea, but women who've had men walk out on them, and have toyed with the idea of doing in the son-of-a-gun, will get a real kick out of it. Like the protagonist, Katlin Wallace, my husband left me with no warning. Then I learned of multiple affairs during our marriage. One day I was driving around, trying to think how to do him in (if I do it that way they might think his mother did it; if I do it this way, they might this his ex-wife did it, etc) when it hit me that I might actually have a real plot! So, I raced back home (a few weeks before I was to lose it) and I wrote Murder in the Movies in just under three weeks. I murdered his sneaky rearend really good! Then I was homeless for about a year. I'd thought the manuscript was great therapy, but would anyone else be interested in readig it? I sent it to one publisher and they accepted it! I went across country on a speaking and signing tour! Since then I have authored 9 published books, 12 ebooks and, using my maiden name (Esther Cox) 5 children's books. So, there, ex-husband! When I give the talk, Reboot, Rebuild, Rejoice, to women's groups, and I share with them that little background tidbit, they seem to know just exactly what I'm talking about!From the Inside Flap:
When Katlin Wallace and her retired detective husband left their Hollywood agency to move to central Florida, she thought she’d left everything to do with the film industry behind—until she got a phone call one fateful night ... a call begging her to come back to see her friend, Helen, through the darkest hours of her life.Helen’s daughter, Lane Allison, once known as American’s Sweetheart, had been a star the magnitude of Doris Day and Debbie Reynolds. Happily married now and the mother of three, she was content at last. That’s why Helen knew beyond a doubt that Lane had nothing to do with Richard’s death. What could Katlin do but go to her friend’s side? What could she do but hold Helen’s hand and listen to the story Helen told over and over again of how Lane and her husband had an argument in front of guests, how the sister-in-law swore Lane pushed him down a flight of stairs, and how Wagnor had died of massive head wounds. But...if it were that cut-and-dried, why did Katlin’s old studio buddy, a retired cop, warn her to watch her back? And why did someone see fit to try and kill her, not once but twice, in the span of a single week? With the press convinced that Katlin is covertly helping to clear the former movie star of murder charges, she stumbles into a nightmare as bizarre as anything ever dreamed up by Hollywood’s most prolific screenwriters.
