I am heading off pretty soon to the launch party at the Mystery Bookstore for my friend Jerrilyn Farmer's MURDER AT THE ACADEMY AWARDS, which she wrote with Joan Rivers. Publisher's Weekly gave it a starred review which said, in part:
This smooth blend of Rivers's trademark bitchy humor and Farmer's deft plotting also offers a poignant reminder about the cost of fame for too many young Hollywood celebs.
UPDATE – The launch party drew a huge crowd. Jerrilyn regaled everyone with hilarious stories of working with Joan Rivers. Judging by the affectionate stories Jerrilyn told, it's a perfect and fun-filled collaboration. I'm sure that fun comes across on the page, too.
