Sophie Katz is a successful mystery writer living in San Francisco. When the movie producer interested in filming her novel commits suicide, Sophie is the only one who sees a suspicious connection to a murder scene in his latest movie.
After she receives several prank calls, discovers her car vandalized, and notices a book subtly rearranged on her shelf, Sophie tells the police that she’s in danger from the same killer— because these events mirror the scenes before the big murder in her latest book. The police brush off her concerns.
Even her quirky friends Dena, Mary Ann and Marcus think her overactive imagination is making connections between unrelated events. But when Sophie decides to take on the role of investigator, her pals are there to help. Of course they all jump to the wrong conclusion, but it’s fun watching them try.
And let’s not forget handsome Anatoly Darinsky. Sparks definitely fly when the hot Russian and Sophie meet—and the heat ratchets up every time they get together. But is he the good guy or the one who’s out to kill her?
Zany friends, handsome strangers, murder and frequent stops for coffee blend together delightfully in the first of the Sophie Katz series.
