SHOOTING STAR, A Nikki Latrelle Mystery
When Nikki's ex-lover Will hires her to protect the horses used to film a movie at Santa Anita Racetrack, she learns evil is alive and well in Hollywood.
Keeping Thoroughbreds safe from a director who doesn't know a horse from a hamster is tricky. More difficult are the unresolved feelings between Nikki and Will, especially when sexy, young movie star, Jamie Jackson, sets his sights on Nikki.
But when a sniper's bullet shatters the brain of a cameraman close enough that she can smell his blood, Nikki's need to protect overrides everything. Her sleuthing unearths a trail of corruption and when she must lie to Will to protect his life, she's on her own. Can she identify the evil behind the scenes before she and Will become the next victims?
Shooting Star is the fifth rocket-paced story in the award-winning Nikki Latrelle mystery series. If you like protagonists with heart and courage, unexpected twists, and a thrill ride to the finish, you'll love Shooting Star.
