Publisher's Summary

Meet Jessica Huntington, an amateur sleuth with a shopping jones and a black AMEX card. She soon finds out that money can't buy happiness or save your neck. Her well-planned life in shambles, she's hiding out near Palm Springs, California. When her best friend's husband is murdered, Jessica and her friends are soon stalked by scoundrels in pantyhose, stilettos, Bruno Maglis, and Armani suits. Roger Stone had something that got him killed. What was it and what will they do to get it back?

Very Enjoyable

I wasn't sure I was going to like this one. Jessica seemed like a character I would instantly dislike. But, I'm glad I continued listening. Jessica and her her friends are very likable and the mystery they are involved in is realistic. I look forward to the next book.

Fun and murder among the rich!

chick-lit, cozy-mystery, situational-humor, verbal-humor, California, friendship, the-mob
Having pots of money, designer clothes and shoes, a pricey residence, and rich friends doesn't mean that Jessica still had the marriage or really knew what to do with the law degree she got seven years ago. Nor does she know how to help her best friend stay safe after finding her husband murdered and learning that he was connected. Both of them learn a lot, and sometimes wish that they hadn't. A good mystery without a lot of gore, with terrific characters, and really high on the laugh-o-meter. A fun read!
The audio is performed slyly by Rebecca Mitchell.

Horrible

Any additional comments?

Rambling narratives throughout the book. Poorly edited. Could have been and should have been much shorter.

story was fair -good, Did not like the narration

Could you see A Dead Husband being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

No

Any additional comments?

As happens often, the writer sometimes gets too wordy.
2 sentences when 5 words would do fine
