Mystery Woman Sleuth | Mystery Amateur Sleuth
Voluptuous P.I. Savannah Reid isnâ€™t a huge fan of diets and
sheâ€™d rather walk through fire then go to the gym. But when
the nationâ€™s hottest weight loss guru becomes a suspect in a
big, fat murder case, even Savannah canâ€™t resist the chance
to find out once and for all if the beloved queen of fitness
took the â€śdieâ€ť in diet a little too farâ€¦
Weight loss diva Clarissa Jardin became a household name
after she transformed herself from flabby to fit with an
exercise program she designed. Known for her in-your-face
attitude, Clarissa uses her own incredible â€śbefore and
afterâ€ť pictures to lure legions of fans into buying her
weight loss books, DVDs, diet meals, and workout clothes.
Raking in millions of dollars, Clarissa has the whole world
in the palm of her handâ€”that is, until her husband, Bill, is
found mysteriously shot to death.
Detective Dirk Coulter calls P.I. Savannah Reid to the crime
scene and it isnâ€™t long before Clarissaâ€™s squeaky clean
image starts to unravel. It turns out that Clarissa has a
dirty little secret: sheâ€™s always been thin. Her chubby twin
sister, Rachel? Not so lucky. Clarissa paid Rachel to pose
for her weighty â€śbeforeâ€ť photos, while Clarissa appears in
the gorgeous â€śafterâ€ť shots. But when Clarissaâ€™s career went
through the roof, Rachel wanted a bigger piece of the pie
and threatened to go public with the scam if she didnâ€™t get
it. Rachel has been extorting money from Clarissa for years,
with Bill dropping off the hush money. Only this time,
Billâ€™s the one that got hushedâ€”for good.
As the investigation continues, Savannah realizes sheâ€™s only
scratched the surface of this dysfunctional familyâ€™s
secrets. Delving into the twinsâ€™ twisted relationship, she
uncovers evidence of insatiable greed, out-of-control
gambling, and even an extra-marital affair. Did Clarissa
exact her revenge against a cheating husband? Did Rachel
want to live her beautiful sisterâ€™s life bad enough to kill
for it? Or was an even darker figure lurking in the
background, waiting to strike? With the whole world watching
this celebrity whodunit, Savannah has to crack the case
fastâ€”before another victim gets hisâ€”or herâ€”just dessertsâ€¦
