The writing is very engaging, and the leading lady's background can only lend to trouble. I'm not very good at explaining why I like a book beyond that, so unfortunately this review is short and uninformative.
Sacha Sanchez earns her living in Chicago in the time-honored profession of picking up and robbing drunks. An unfortunate choice of customer, however---a policeman---soon forces her to get out of town.
We see her next in Hollywood, pretending to be an "energy healer." But when a client of hers, a movie star, is accused of murdering her husband, Sacha feels compelled to find the real killer.
Movie Star Money is a good read with a likable heroine, colorful side characters and a picaresque plot. I'm looking forward to seeing what scrapes Sacha gets into in Marguerite Darlington's next novel.
Best thing I can say about this book? I missed the characters immediately when I turned the last page and was really disappointed when there wasn't another book to read!
