NOT SO MODEL HOME
The second Amanda Thorne book tackles the world of reality television. The plot is intriguing, a classic whodunit, and the characters are original. There is a lot of funny and outlandish behavior, but at times it gets to be too much.
Struggling Palm Springs Realtor Amanda agrees to be in a reality show with haircare mogul Ian Forbes, playing Ian’s straight friend who is trying to find the perfect guy for him. When two of the contestants end up dead, Amanda teams up with the police to try to solve the murders. As the investigation begins to crank up, Amanda lands in the crosshairs of a killer.
