POPPY HARMON AND THE PILLOW TALK KILLER is the second book in the Desert Flowers Mystery series by Lee Hollis. After reading the first book in the series, I was a little surprised by the different voice and narration from this author.

I wondered if it would be hard for me to relate to Poppy since she is almost double my age, however, I felt like I was pleasantly surprised as the story progressed. In the end, I very much enjoyed this book even if it was out of my element a bit. Poppy and her friends are a wonderful cast of characters that I think many people would enjoy.

For me, this book was a nice change of pace to try something new and I admire writers who are able to write for different audiences. I will definitely be back for more Poppy Harmon!

SUMMARY

Private investigator Poppy Harmon likes the anonymity of working behind the scenes for the hottest names in Palm Springs. But when solving a case demands dragging her old acting career out of retirement, it’s lights . . . camera . . . murder!
 
Cast in her first role since the 1980s, Poppy has never been more rattled or unprepared on a film set. It’s an embarrassing but necessary cover to keep an eye on client Danika Delgado, a rising starlet and social media influencer with a large following—including a dangerous stalker who won’t disappear. The leading lady’s fame is growing, and so are the threats against her life . . .
 
Unfortunately for Poppy, there’s more to fear than flubbed lines. When she finds Danika smothered to death in her trailer at Joshua Tree National Park, the horrifying crime stirs up memories of a man known as the Pillow Talk Killer during her time as a young actress, bringing unsolved murders from the past back into focus . . .
 
A trail of clues urges Poppy, hunky sidekick Matt Flowers, and the rest of the Desert Flowers Detective Agency gang on a frantic chase after Danika’s crazed #1 fan. But as co-stars and production crew members start looking equally suspicious, Poppy must expose a slew of insidious industry secrets before a murderer rolls out the red carpet for someone else . . .
