If Poppy didn't believe she was in too deep as the only female juror in a high-profile assault case involving an infamously hot-tempered crooner, she's sure of it upon meeting blast-from-her-past Rod Harper. A former TV co-star from her short-lived acting days, Rod is as dashing as ever, and now he wants to partner again-this time to locate his missing daughter. Returning a pampered songstress with a penchant for running away back home unscathed shouldn't be too challenging. But dodging Rod's charms while on the job is another story-and so is finding a dead body! When Poppy discovers a fellow juror face down in a swimming pool, she's unwittingly thrust into a murder investigation with sinister parallels to the troubled chanteuse's disappearance. As Poppy struggles to survive a steamy love triangle while deciphering the connection between two seemingly unrelated cases, the Desert Flowers Agency must outsmart a ruthless killer who will do anything to keep hideous secrets hidden away . . . including ensuring Poppy becomes the next forgotten ex-actress to bite the dust . . .

I'm an avid fan of cozy mysteries; one of the reasons being that I love the character development that progresses with each book. But that character development was truly lacking in this book (#2 in the series). The interactions were flat, and considering the subject matter, I expected so much more. Lee Hollis is the pen name for a brother/sister writing team and unlike the 1st book in the series, which was wonderful, this book felt like the sister of the writing duo was absent as I could not see most women in similar positions being so apathetic towards certain individuals. Where was the anger, or passion, depending on their viewpoint!? Therefore, as there are so many excellent cozy series out there, this likely the last book in this series that I'll spend my time reading.
