First Line: It was almost cold outside.

After a year away from Manhattan, Hailey Dean has returned. Wanting to get back to a normal life and her practice as a therapist, she tries to settle back into the life she knew before what happened the previous year. But before she realizes it, she has agreed to go on a daytime TV show to fight crime. What was supposed to be a one time appearance has turned into more appearances now that D-list actresses keep getting murdered. NYPD Lieutenant Ethan Kolker, the cop who was convinced that Hailey herself was a murderer the previous year, is now needing her help trying to figure out these murders. As she gets more involved in the investigation, Hailey is shocked to discover that TV can be murder!

This is the second in the Hailey Dean series. I can’t say that I really loved this book, but it was a decent read. For whatever reason, I have not really taken to Hailey’s character all that much. I don’t feel much of a connection to her. Overall, I definitely think that Ms. Grace has a distinct writing talent, but ultimately her books are forgettable in the long run, because I honestly could not remember a single thing from her previous book The Eleventh Victim, which I read last year.

  1. Agree it was nothing special. Local library had a copy; wouldn’t
    have spent cash for it or finished reading it had it not been pouring down rain outside.

  2. I noticed when referencing The Eleventh Victim, this book listed Hailey’s patients that were murdered as “Melissa and Shannon.” The characters names in the first book were Melissa and Hayden. What’s with the goof?
