Blue Blood by Susan McBride
"To the dismay of her high society mother, Cissy, Dallas heiress Andy Kendricks wants no part of the Junior League life—opting instead for a job as a website designer and a passel of unpedigreed pals. Now her good friend Molly O'Brien is in bad trouble, accused of killing her boss at the local restaurant Jugs.
Though no proper deb would ever set foot in such a sleazy dive, Andy's soon slipping into skintight hot pants and a stuffed triple D bra to gain employment there and somehow help clear Molly's name.
But Andy's undercover lark soon brings her into too-close contact with all manner of dangerous adversaries—including a shady TV preacher, a fanatical Mothers Against Porn activist … and a killer who is none too keen on meddling rich girls."- summary from Amazon
I really enjoyed McBride's YA trilogy and so when Witness Impulse (an imprint of Harper) put her adult mysteries on Edelweiss as part of the re-release campaign, I jumped on the chance to read them. This is the first of the Debutante Dropout mysteries (there's 5 books total) and I'm excited to read more. This was a really fun chick-lit mystery and kind of reminded me of the TV show GCB (though this was written before that show aired). Andy is a great main character and I loved following her along on her journey to help out her friend Molly. There's also of course the beginnings of a cute little romance between Andy and the detective Malone, which was very sweet to see.
Overall, a really good start to this fun mystery series and I cannot wait to read more!
