Summary

Snarky, delicious fun! The Camilla Randall mysteries are a laugh-out-loud mashup of romantic comedy, crime fiction, and satire. 
Perennially down-and-out socialite Camilla Randall is a magnet for murder, mayhem and Mr. Wrong, but she always solves the mystery in her quirky, but oh-so-polite way.  Usually with more than a little help from her gay best friend, Plantagenet Smith. 
 
This prequel to the Camilla mysteries romps through the glitzy 1980s, when 19-year-old Camilla loses everything: her fortune, her gay best friend, and eventually her freedom. 
When she's falsely accused of a TV star's murder, she discovers she's made of sterner stuff than anyone imagined--herself included. 
In typical Anne R. Allen fashion, the plot twists and turns from one hilarious misadventure to another, leading to a finish sure to catch the reader by surprise. 
"…while laugh-out-loud funny, it carries a message about how we view ourselves and how others' views of us may conflict, yet make us grow." 
"An engaging Hollywood caper set during the 1980's pits a fashionable New York debutante against a hard-nosed reporter who's had a bad day. I don't even know what to classify this book as -- thriller, romance, comedy, drama, whodunit, who's going to do it -- it has everything!” 
"Fans of Marian Keyes will love Camilla!"
