Waiting on Wednesday: Dead to Me

This is a weekly meme hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine.  "Waiting on Wednesday" spotlights upcoming releases that I'm eagerly anticipating.

Dead to Me by Mary McCoy
Pub. Date: March 3, 2015


Goodreads says, ""Don't believe anything they say." Those were the last words that Annie spoke to Alice before turning her back on their family and vanishing without a trace. Alice spent four years waiting and wondering when the impossibly glamorous sister she idolized would return to her--and what their Hollywood-insider parents had done to drive her away. When Annie does turn up, the blond, broken stranger lying in a coma has no answers for her. But Alice isn't a kid anymore, and this time she won't let anything stand between her and the truth, no matter how ugly. The search for those who beat Annie and left her for dead leads Alice into a treacherous world of tough-talking private eyes, psychopathic movie stars, and troubled starlets--and onto the trail of a young runaway who is the sole witness to an unspeakable crime. What this girl knows could shut down a criminal syndicate and put Annie's attacker behind bars--if Alice can find her first. And she isn't the only one looking Evoking classic film noir, debut novelist Mary McCoy brings the dangerous glamour of Hollywood's Golden Age to life, where the most decadent parties can be the deadliest, and no drive into the sunset can erase the crimes of past.
Sometimes a book's synopsis hooks me immediately and sometimes it's simply just an incredible cover, but I have to say, this book hooked me with both.  Not only is the cover awesome, I love the premise.  Golden Age of Hollywood. YES. YES. YES. I don't think I have ever read a book that takes place during that time period and it's one of my favorites.  Plus, this book has a classic film noir vibe? I.can't.wait.
