Overview

Rita Farmer knows exactly how hard it is to break into the movie business. Acting was the big dream that brought her out to L.A. in the first place. And while she never made the red carpet, that big dream did turn into a modest profession that kept her and her son afloat. So from time to time she'll lend her talents as a favor.

Kenner and Lance de Sauvenard, heirs to a timber fortune, don't really need a favor to make their art film, but since Lance is dating Rita's sister, Gina, there's no way for Rita to worm her way out of a read-through. Gina is all for the project-or at least her new boyfriend-and she goes with Lance to scout locations on his family's land holdings in the Northwest. When they don't return as planned and flood waters start to rise, Rita can't help dashing into the wilds to bring her sister home, and when foul play becomes more and more likely, her sometime lover, George Rowe, is right on her heels.

In ON LOCATION, Elizabeth Sims brings the Pacific Northwest to storm-lashed life, as quirky, lovable Rita grapples not only with the weather, but with backwoods justice--and her own dark side.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Sims's smart third Rita Farmer mystery (after 2009's The Extra) finds Rita savoring some stability as an L.A. law student and single mom after years of angst with an alcoholic ex. Then the disappearance of her sister, Gina, thrusts the former actress into her most dramatic role to date. When days pass without word from just engaged Gina and her wealthy fiancé, Lance de Sauvenard, who's scouting locations in the storm-lashed Washington State wilderness for his filmmaker brother, Kenner, headstrong Rita resists reaching out to PI George Rowe, her erstwhile beau, and instead enlists her game six-year-old son, Petey, and gay TV actor friend, Daniel, in the hunt. Raging rivers prove to be among the lesser perils these babes in the wood face in a forest primeval harboring scoundrels ready for their Coen brothers closeup--and just maybe a murderer. Sims orchestrates the action--and occasional comic relief--for maximum impact, with characters you hope will survive to enjoy another day. (Aug.)
