About Final Cut

A Hollywood film set provides the backdrop for Final Cut, a contemporary cozy mystery. Joey, a costumer working on a blockbuster action movie, is the prime suspect in a murder when she stumbles upon the body of another crew member. When the police won’t clear her name, she’s forced to take matters into her own hands.

My thoughts about Final Cut

Joey’s a smart, driven MC, never giving up even when the odds are against her. The mystery is fast-paced and twisty; it kept me guessing right up to the explosive, high-octane ending.

The author’s experience in the world of film making gives context and authenticity to the story’s details. Plus, fun cameos from real-life superstars contribute to that peeking behind-the-curtain of movie magic feel.

In closing

Final Cut is a quick and entertaining mystery – the perfect beach read book.
