Overview

When the latest in a series of lamentable boyfriends lets her in on his plan to become the next big thing in porn, Evin Hart flings the nearest heavy object at his head and elects to relinquish her miserable independence for the long lost comforts of home. With her beloved dog Gulliver, Evin makes haste to Palm Springs, where she intends to bask in the sun with a frosty adult beverage, but before she can commence her poolside sprawl she’s tangled in the loose ends of her stepfather’s affair. Her mental health break goes completely awry when bodies start piling up and Jack, her stepfather, is arrested for murder. She and Jack have a deplorable habit of never letting each other down, so Evin hides her fears behind a snarky front (ok, so her front is always snarky) and goes in search of a killer. She’s helped (and hindered) by her mother Leonie, a disciple of Absolute Truth, Harry Chalmers, who has gone from scrawny childhood annoyance to unfairly sexy, and her best friend Zuzu Jones, an ER nurse who gets a kick out of patients with self-inflicted veggies. In spite of the bodies, bullets and mayhem, Evin finds that nothing can snap you out of a funk quite like three dead blondes.

Anne Stinnett was born in Los Angeles where she spent her first decade reading books and playing in traffic. Due to the professional obligations of her own personal Leonie, Anne found herself, at the tender age of ten, sweltering in Palm Springs, CA. Learning to deal (cards not drugs) led her to Albuquerque where she graduated with a degree in English from the University of New Mexico. Thanks to her finely honed and practical ability to discuss fiction, Anne found herself so overwhelmed with offers of employment that she was forced to retreat to Palm Springs where she now lives with a pack of rowdy dogs who are occasionally kind enough to let her get some writing done. She is currently at work on Evin's next adventure. I went to Palm Springs and all I got was Three Dead Blondes is her first novel.

I’m keeping my fingers crossed that this is the start of a long series; I loved this book. The characters were easy to get to know and I want to spend more time learning about them. The mystery itself was really good and kept me guessing till the end. I’d say if you are a fan of Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum, this one will be right up your alley. It’s great for a summer beach read.

This is a tightly crafted and literate mystery with not too much gore and lots of hot romance. The characters are quirky, yet believable and even the secondary characters are well developed. The mystery is baffling; I didn't figure it out and I am a long term mystery fan. This book is often hilarious. There were parts I read over and over and just kept laughing.

I went to Palm Springs and all I got was Three Dead Blondes  (Anne Stinnett) Evin Hart dumps her boyfriend who wants to be a porn star, packs her bags and dog Gulliver and heads back to Palm Springs. With the hopes of getting her life together she expects some relaxation. What she gets is the complete opposite. Her Stepfather Jack asks her for a favor, reluctantly she agrees to help him. When she shows up at his "friends" house she finds a dead body and Jacks' friend disappears. Jack and Evin decide to investigate and soon another body turns up dead. Soon Jack finds himself in Jail as the number one suspect. With the aide of her friend Zuzu and childhood (annoying) friend Harry Chalmers, who is now a private investigator they set out to clear Jacks name and get him out of jail. When Evins' quirky mother, who is now following "Absolute Truth" hears of this she puts her two cents in and helps in her own way.During the investigation Evin is warned not to get involved and finds herself in danger.  Fast paced mystery with laugh out loud moments, unforgettable lovable characters, twists, turns and secrets. Just when I thought I had it figured out another secret surfaces and gets me guessing again. I enjoyed this read from the first page up until the last.  Anne Stinnett is an Author to follow. I look forward to more from her.
