In Cherry Hinton's first case, she discovers that it takes a reality TV star to catch a reality TV murderer.
When Kenny Thorpe, a contestant on Expose TV’s Big Blubber – the hot new celebrity weight-loss show – is murdered on live television in front of three-million viewers, the case seems pretty watertight. After all, everyone saw Martin do it – didn’t they?
Cherry Hinton knows there’s more to this than meets the eye. As an investigative reporter, she went undercover on dating show Caravan of Love … but after getting in too deep with one of the other contestants, she was caught knickerless in front of the nation. Humiliated, fired and heartbroken, she has fled to Brentwood, where she opens a cake shop and tries to forget all about Expose.
But then Kenny Thorpe’s sister walks into her shop with a letter that turns Cherry’s world upside down. Is Martin innocent? How is infamous gangster Leon Solent involved? Is Expose to blame and is there a killer still on the loose?
Cherry is the only one in a position to find out.
