Another nonstop adventure that will keep you turning the pages as you try to keep up with Jessica and the rest of the crew. The writing flow is so smooth that you are at the end of the book before you realize. The characters are amazingly down to earth and realistic. The murder plot is a twisted tangle that will keep you on edge until the last bad guy bites the dust.
Jessica Huntington has a knack for what some call meddling and placing herself in sticky situations but she just can’t control her compulsion to make things right. Nick and Nora Van Der Woert are her clients and their daughter, Libby, is a 30-something woman whose life was in tatters and is trying to destroy her parents lives. Even though Jessica doesn’t represent Libby, she responds to her request for a private meeting at the top of the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway that ends with both women being hospitalized and Dr. Carr, Libby’s Beverly Hills psychiatrist, dying. During their time on the mountain, Libby reveals secrets about her life and her doctor. Through further investigation, Jessica learns that young women from wealthy families are missing and have been misguided and exploited, with money being used as manipulation that morphed from sexploitation to extortion. Jessica has her hands and mind full with the investigation and still trying to work through her parent’s divorce many years ago and her recent one, her shopping addiction, and the secrets her mother reveals to her about her life and illness. Jessica has a wonderful support system, the Cat Pack, which is an intriguing group of friends who help with her investigations and provide support and shelter from threats.
Not disappointed here. Jessica Huntington is more than just a daughter. She is a divorced lawyer working hard to build her career. Of course, eye candy Paul Worthington, her boss, doesn’t hinder the situation, and Detective Frank Fontana, a gentle soul, also smitten with Jessica completes the package. When you encounter devoted friend Bernadette, shy and withdrawn Kim, her dad the hunk, and all the other friends you need to discover for yourselves, you will understand part of what makes Jessica Huntington so interesting.
The story focuses mostly on Jessica’s life, and on her immediate family and friends. When a client complains that their daughter is in trouble and that she is suing them, Jessica steps into the dark fold with both feet to meet with Libby Van Der Woert. Unknowingly, she is lured away from her comfort zone and thrown in with the wolves. Not to spoil the story for anyone, let me just add that the author, Celeste Burke, has all her characters, including the secondary friends well covered. A Dead Daughter is a cracker jack mystery, and I believe Jessica would also make a good Private Investigator, as well as an excellent lawyer. Great read and recommended to all.
