Toni Diamond never believed she’d see her no-good ex-husband Dwayne Diamond again, not after he abandoned her and their baby sixteen years ago. But now she’s a successful independent beauty consultant for Lady Bianca cosmetics, Dwayne suddenly wants back in her life — or at least in her bank account. He convinces their daughter, Tiffany, to go to Vegas and visit the father she’s never known. When Toni follows her runaway daughter, little does she know she’s about to run smack into a murder. Dwayne Diamond is the chief suspect and it’s up to Toni to prove Tiffany’s dad didn’t commit murder, by finding out who did.
This is the second instalment in the best selling Toni Diamond series, which began with Frosted Shadow, though the books can be read in any order. Sexy detective Luke Marciano is back, and of course Toni couldn’t go to Vegas without her mother, the Dolly Parton-obsessed Linda Plotnik along for the ride. While Toni noses around Vegas she and her mother find plenty of scope for their talents as saleswoman and makeup artists in this humorous Las Vegas set mystery.
