The 2nd Cat Sinclair Mystery novel sees Cat dealing with spoiled stars, fake friends and dangerous deviants. Then there's her love life.

In a night where jewelry is stolen, affairs are exposed and liars are everywhere, it's left to Cat to unravel the truth. At 14,000 words, LIVE AND LET LIE is a quick introduction to the 1st book in the series.
When gemologist Ruby Jones is mistaken by a ruthless businessman as a diamond thief, there's only one man she can turn to. Ex-special ops solider turned private security agent, Jake Forrester. But Jake is moving interstate, and the last thing he wants is a complication in the form of a sexy woman in trouble. The sooner he can find the famous Florentine diamond, the better. Or so he thought.
Cat Sinclair leaves a failed Hollywood career to take a job as a secretary to a cranky (& hot) PI. But when he refuses a case, Cat hires herself out. When the suspect is murdered, Cat needs to employ every trick she learned in Hollywood to find the killer, escape from mobsters, sweet talk the cops, and avoid getting fired. For fans of the Stephanie Plum novels.
