A Dead Husband (Jessica Huntington Desert Cities Mystery Book 1) By Anna Celeste Burke


“It has a good pace, kept me entertained throughout and I thought the cover matched the story very well.”

“The storyline of various travels and especially Palm Springs gives the reader a clear picture of the locations and a wonderful sensation that you are actually there.”

“This alone makes her stand out in a genre filled with heroines who are so often struggling to make ends meet.”

Jessica Huntington, rich, beautiful, and smart, seeks refuge from betrayal in a desert paradise near Palm Springs only to discover life is full of surprises…like a dead husband. Jessica Huntington is hiding out from her own well-planned life, now in shambles. Her law career tanked by the Great Recession, she failed miserably as a desperate housewife in the Silicon Valley playing beat-the-clock with her 30-something hormones. In the end she put on a little baby fat, but no baby. The final blow: walking in on her husband in bed with a well-known Hollywood blond. The Rancho Mirage home where she grew up, surrounded by the beauty of the desert resort town near Palm Springs, seems the perfect place to take refuge. That is until her best friend’s husband is murdered. Jessica and her friends are soon thrust into the fray stalked by scoundrels in pantyhose, stilettos, Bruno Magli shoes, and Armani suits. Roger Stone had something that got him killed. What was it and to what lengths will they go to get it back?This is the first in the Jessica Huntington Desert Cities Mystery Series

A Dead Sister By Anna Celeste Burke
Jessica Huntington, rich, smart, and beautiful, seeks refuge from betrayal in a desert paradise only to discover life is full of surprises like… A DEAD SISTER! Jessica Huntington’s philandering husband and his she-beast aren’t done with her yet. It’s not just the debacle on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills that has Jessica wondering if the shopping gods have it in for her. There’s more trouble on El Paseo, too! Jessica and her ‘cat pack’ friends are back in this, the second Jessica Huntington Desert Cities Mystery. Jessica’s childhood friend, Kelly Fontana, was killed soon after graduating from high school. The victim of a hit-and-run accident in downtown Palm Springs, the investigation into her death quickly grew cold. Now more than a decade later a lowlife meth addict claims to have witnessed her death and swears: “It weren’t no accident! It was on purpose.” Why would someone do such a thing to the 19-year-old, auburn-haired beauty with a voice like an angel and a streak of wild? Can Jessica and her friends figure out who killed her and, finally, get justice for Kelly? Will they get him before he gets them?
