Description

A plus-sized PI's search for a celebrity hanger-on leads to murder in this cozy mystery by the acclaimed author of Fat Free and Fatal.

Halloween in southern California just doesn't have the frosty bite Savannah's used to, although her latest job promises chills aplenty. The Skeleton Key Three, a celebutante clique so named by the media because of their super-skinny figures and fat trust funds, are in the spotlight again—but this time, it's for something more than partying. It seems the one member of the Three who was neither wealthy nor particularly svelte hasn't been heard from in days.

The missing girl's name is Daisy O'Neil, and by all accounts, she had little in common with her so-called friends Tiffy, Kiki, and Bunny. Chubby, smart, and less-than-privileged, Daisy's role in the Three seems to have been primarily to be the victim of their vicious jibes and pranks. When Savannah learns that Tiffy's acting aspirations were threatened by Daisy's genuine talent, the poor little rich girl begins to look big-time guilty.

But just when Savannah thinks she has it all figured out—except where the body is stashed—the vibe surrounding the Skeleton Key Three changes from vacuous and suspicious to downright murderous. As preparations are being made for a monster Halloween party, to be held on the Dante compound, the patriarch himself is spotted dressed as Dracula, laid out in his coffin, complete with a real stake through his no-longer-beating heart. Now, with the party seriously pooped and the tabloids on a tear, Savannah will have to put her Halloween candy on the shelf until she's deserving of a reward. And that means finding a killer—fast—before more Hollywood money becomes buried treasure.

Praise for Poisoned Tarts:

        March 10, 2008
        In McKevett’s entertaining 13th Savannah Reid mystery (after 2007’s Fat Free and Fatal
        ), the California PI agrees to help her old San Carmelita police partner, overworked Det. Sgt. Dirk Coulter, find 18-year-old Daisy O’Neil because she’s reminded of a missing girl the pair were unable to find alive nearly 20 years earlier. Daisy’s terrified mother suspects Daisy’s “friends” known as “the Skeleton Key Three” may be involved. Rail-thin tabloid queen Tiffy Dante, along with Bunny Greenaway and Kiki Wallace, are famous for their glam looks, wealth and party-on lifestyle. They view Daisy as a fat hanger-on and claim to know nothing. As Tiffy preps her family estate for a Halloween party, Tiffy’s dad turns up in a prop coffin with a stake through his heart. Is there a connection between his murder and Daisy’s disappearance? When Savannah’s Granny Reid, who’s visiting from Georgia, decides to lend a hand in the investigation, things really start popping. McKevett continues to deliver witty crime solving that’s both tart and sweet.
