Overview

With slick black hair, tortoise-shell glasses and a penchant for cheap Merlot, Roxy Parker is a sassy new female detective … except she’s not strictly a detective. Rather, she’s a writer with a taste for the morbid and mysterious—and this time her little sideline may get her in way over her head …

In the first book of the Ghostwriter Mystery series, Roxy is hired to ghostwrite the life story of department store heiress Beatrice Musgrave. Beatrice has promised Roxy a secret worth writing about, but before she gets the chance to tell all, the socialite is found ripped to shreds at the bottom of a cliff. The police say it's suicide but Roxy knows better—there are too many people looking way too relieved.

And so she embarks on an investigation of her own. From the posh suburbs of inner-city Sydney to remote outback Australia, Roxy finds herself lured into a web of deceit where time has healed no wounds and no one is who they appear to be. One thing, however, is crystal clear: chasing headlines can be a deadly occupation. Roxy must also act fast—there's a menacing stranger threatening her life, a handsome best friend growing increasingly impatient, and her mother is really starting to get on her nerves.

Killer Twist is a fun, fast-paced adventure for anyone who loves a good cozy mystery with a little wine swilling and fashionable accessories on the side.

    Great plot

    Good book with a great plot. Some spelling mistakes but as a free book when I got it, totally worth it.

    A fabulous read from start to finish. Alot of great twists and turns without being too confusing and none of the over the top Aussie talk. I highly recommend. I look forward to reading more from this author.

    Fun read, good plot. Figured it out fairly quickly, but that didn't ruin it for me. Great characters.

    Excellent!

    I really enjoys this story and I can't believe this was a free nook book too! This story kept me guessing until the very end with enough twists and turns to keep me reading all night to finish this story. I will definitely look for more from this author. Roxy Parker Rocks!

    A nice read

    I enjoyed this novel. It had some nice twists and remained a little unpredictable. I liked the setting and the characters.

    An ok mystery genre read

    A journalist who is better at solving a crime without the help of. professionals is a bit far fetched, but inspite of that it's a readable story.

    Foxy is fun!

    Thought the main character, Roxy, was a hoot. This was a fun change of pace - I usually like more serious mysteries.

    Mostly enjoyable

    Interesting twists in the plot, but many were predictable anyway. It was still entertaining.

    Good mystery.

    Slow start to the book. But it was worth hanging in there. The large set up in the beginning makes the story more interesting. The next book should be even better. Looking forward to it.
