Secret Lives and Private Eyes (A Delanie Fitzgerald Mystery) by Heather Weidner
My review – 5/5 Stars
This was a very entertaining read that kept me turning the pages. The plot was engaging and the characters were interesting and well developed. The story line regarding Johnny Velvet was intriguing and left me wanting to know what happens in his life after this book.
I enjoyed getting a feel for Richmond, Virginia. I also appreciated the list in the back of the book that provided links to the people and locations that were mentioned in the book that are/were real.
Book description from GoodReads:
Business has been slow for Private Investigator, Delanie Fitzgerald, but her luck seems to change when a tell-all author hires her to find rock star, Johnny Velvet. Could the singer whose career purportedly ended in a fiery crash almost thirty years ago, still be alive?
And as though sifting through dead ends in a cold case isn’t bad enough, Chaz Wellington Smith, III, a loud-mouthed, strip club owner, also hires Delanie to uncover information about the mayor’s secret life. When the mayor is murdered, Chaz, is the key suspect. Now Delanie must clear his name and figure out why landscaper Tripp Payne, keeps popping up in her other investigation. Can the private investigator find the connection between the two cases before another murder – possibly her own – takes place?
Secret Lives and Private Eyes is a fast-paced mystery that appeals to readers who like a strong, female sleuth with a knack for getting herself in and out of humorous situations.
