Review: Hollywood Homicide by Kellye Garrett

Hollywood Homicide by Kellye Garrett is the first Detective by Day Mystery

Hollywood Homicide, the first Detective by Day Mystery, tosses you right into Hollywood, a scandalous murder, and one retired actress’s quest for the truth—while she also attempts to keep herself employed and prevent her parent’s from losing their house. 

It’s easy to relate to Dayna Anderson. Opening on one of the world’s worst job interviews, Dayna’s dry, self-deprecating tone draws you right into her story. I immediately wanted to know how she was going to manage and when she was going to get a break. Mystery novels often feature amateur detectives bore from people down on their luck, but Dayna’s tale has an immediate flavor of reality. You can feel her irritation at being boiled down to a catch phrase and a dress size. I immediately empathized with her, in spite of this, needing a payday.
