Publisher's Summary

In the second installment of Susan McBride's Debutante Dropout mystery series, Dallas heiress Andrea Kendricks must expose a high-society assassin...before she becomes the killer's next target.

Website designer and high-society rebel Andrea Kendricks would never have gotten involved with ego-in-pumps lifestyle hostess Marilee Mabry if it weren't for the underhanded machinations of Andy's upper-crust mama. But thanks to Mother Cissy, Andy's donning designer duds to attend a launch party at the intolerable domestic diva's new Dallas TV studio - and she's on hand to witness the celebration site go up in flames!

Then Andy finds Marilee's daughter, seemingly lifeless. Even though iron-willed Cissy isn't about to let her social calendar be upset by minor inconveniences like arson and possibly murder, her sometime-sleuthing daughter's got a more pressing engagement - namely, hunting down the culprit behind some very foul play.

But there are more than a few nasty messes tucked away in the Mabry closet - and a craven assassin who has the Big D elite quaking in their cowboy boots may soon be burying Andy in hers!

Amy McFadden is the perfect narrator

Amy McFadden is so perfect as Andy Kendricks. She has the voice that makes me feel I want to be best friends with her. She even thanks the reader for listening and she seems very sincere about it. The story line is another great one of the debutante drop out Andy, who is so emphatic. She cares about people and their problems and truly tries to help them. She enlists help from her socialite mom Cissy Kendricks, her boyfriend a lawyer, and others to help the ignored daughter of a Martha Stewert like tv maven.

Debutante Dropout Series

It’s rare when an author can find the perfect narrator for a main character. I can almost see Andie responding to other characters in these books. I’m impressed with the story, but above that, I have to admire the narrator’s gift for being the voice of both Andie and her mother and making them come alive.
