"ONCE YOU’VE EXPERIENCED MARTA TANDORI’S WAY WITH LANGUAGE, WITH CHARACTER BUILDING, AND WITH PLOT DEVELOPMENT, THERE IS NO TURNING BACK.” – GRADY HARP, VINE VOICE
“The Kate Stanton Hollywood Mystery Series serves up the perfect mystery reader Cosmo – one part ‘I-didn’t-see-that-coming’ whodunit with a double shot of Hollywood glam.”
Kate Stanton’s former son-in-law, Dr. Eric Devane, is a prominent Beverly Hills doctor who’s now engaged to beautiful Brooke Connelly, only a few years older than his eldest daughter. With the impending arrival of his and Brooke’s baby through a surrogate – who happens to be his eldest daughter’s best friend – Eric’s life has become very complicated, but not nearly as complicated as his fiancée’s past.
Four years ago, Brooke Connelly made the biggest mistake of her life when she betrayed her mobster boyfriend by tipping off the intended victim of his next hit. Her timely intervention had nearly cost Brooke her life after she was beaten and left for dead by her boyfriend in retaliation for her betrayal. In desperation, Brooke turned to one of the most powerful men in Las Vegas for protection – unaware that her arrangement with Clint Staebler was non-negotiable and permanent. Brooke has since relocated to L.A., where she’s the general manager of a popular restaurant and nightclub, both owned by Clint Staebler. With her recent engagement to Eric, Brooke is determined to cut all ties to her past but the cards seem to be stacked against her when Eric finds out about her past relationship with Clint Staebler and demands to know where her loyalties lie. Caught between a murderer and a man who refuses to let her go at all costs, Brooke plays her one trump card in the hopes that it will be enough to sever her ties to her past, once and for all.
About the Author
Marta Tandori had always been an avid reader but it wasn't until she began studying acting in her early twenties at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York that she realized acting wasn't really her passion - writing fiction was. Thanks to an overly zealous addiction in her youth to all things Nancy Drew and Trixie Belden, Marta fell in love with mysteries and it's hardly a surprise that she chose to write in the same genre! Marta's books feature strong female protagonists who have closets full of nasty skeletons and the odd murder or two to complicate their already complex lives. She's the author of the Kate Stanton Hollywood Mystery series as well as several other standalone mysteries.
