As part of a Blog Tour organized by Great Escapes Virtual Book Tours,  I am here to tell you about Murder and Other Unnatural Disasters by Lisa Sideris.

Synopsis

UnnaturalDisastersWatch out Southern California! There’s a new entertainment attorney in town and she’s got game. Only problem is, it’s not the one she should be playing. Corrie Locke belongs behind a desk, not behind a Glock. She should be taking VIP calls, not nosing around a questionable suicide. Instead, she’s hot on the trail of a murderer.

Luckily, she’s the daughter of a late, great private eye and she’s inherited his love of sleuthing…and illegal weaponry. It doesn’t help matters that her gene for caution is a recessive one. Corrie finds herself in the center of a murder case, unearthing suspects in shocking places. With a cold-blooded killer on the loose, Corrie will have to up her game, or die trying.

My Review

This was a fun murder mystery.  Corrie struggles between her desire for a conventional job as a lawyer and her sense of adventure and aptitude for investigation. She ends up investigating the suicide, and in her non-existent free time investigates a couple of other matters for people who knew her father. Comic relief came in the form of  unusual subplots  and witty interchanges.  The backdrop for the story provided an interesting and (hopefully) exaggerated glimpse into interpersonal interactions and infidelities in the entertainment industry.  Although I found much of the story to be far-fetched, it was an enjoyable fast-paced read.

Note:  If you are easily offended by profanity,  this book might not be your cup of tea.

FTC Disclosure:   I received a complimentary copy of this book as part of this blog tour.  This has not affected the content of my review in any way.
