Book Description:
Fame comes at a price. Some pay with their privacy. Others pay with their pride. Khloe Everest paid with her life.



Determined to get her pretty face in front of the cameras, Khloe Everest fakes an abduction only to make a grand entrance in the midst of a press conference held by Spencer's Police Chief David O'Callaghan.



Three years later, after failing to catapult her notoriety into a long-lasting celebrity, Khloe Everest returns to Spencer upon her mother's sudden death and seemingly finds another weapon to propel herself into the spotlight. Unfortunately, someone kills her before she can make this entrance.



In Lauren Carr's sixth Mac Faraday Mystery, Mac and his friends come up against reality stars, politicians, has-beens, and wannabes. Mac also finds himself face-to-face with an old foe from his past who had managed to escape arrest during their last encounter. Now, Mac sees that his adversary has only become more powerful, and dangerous, with the passage of time.



Intent to not let this killer escape again, Mac and his friends need to put all of their talents together to put a stop to a cold-blooded lady killer.



What I Thought:



I have read several books by Lauren Carr before.  I am fairly new to audiobooks and sometimes I find them a little tedious as I think I would rather read the book myself rather than have someone read it to me.  I enjoyed this one as I have all of Lauren’s previous books that I have read.

Of course one thing that I like about Lauren’s Mac Faraday series is that it is set in the Deep Creek Lake, MD area which is about 2 hours from where I live, and I have visited this are a few times, so I enjoy reading about it because it is familiar to me.

I enjoyed this one.  I like how Lauren throws in twists and turns.  You think you have it figured out, and there is twist thrown in that totally changes everything.  Of course, all of the familiar cast of the Mac Faraday series is here and they are just as likable as always.  Some of the newcomers in this one are not likable though.  Of course Gnarly steals the show, as he usually does.  In this story, Mac and company has to solve the murder of a “drama queen” who has always wanted to be in the limelight.  I enjoyed listening to this narrator as he made the reading of this interesting.

I received a complimentary copy of this audiobook.

All of Lauren Carr's books are rated PG-13 because they are murder mysteries and will contains murder scenes. Some of the books contain violence associated with military assignments. There are some books that contain sex scenes which are not explicit. There is little profanity, no f-words.
