Publisher's Summary

A scorching Las Vegas summer is about to get even hotter.
Aspiring journalist Copper Black has just found out that her boyfriend is responsible for his not-quite-ex-wife's pregnancy. An unexpected house-sitting job at a notorious Las Vegas "party house" should provide not only a private swimming pool but also much-needed distraction.
While researching a story about an exclusive private school, Copper accidentally discovers the dead body of the school's beloved founder. Now involved in a high-profile murder investigation, Copper turns to her brother, a civic-minded pastor who is overseeing the construction of a center for the homeless. A Paiute medicine man claims the site is a sacred burial ground, attracting hordes of protesters.
As she tries to solve the murder, help her brother, advance her career, and sort out her love life, Copper stirs up a world of trouble. Her escapades as she evades a sociopath, a disturbed cowgirl, and a suspicious homicide detective make Megan Edwards' rousing debut Getting Off on Frank Sinatra a nonstop roller coaster of a listen.

Who knew murder could be so much fun?

What made the experience of listening to Getting off on Frank Sinatra the most enjoyable?

Edwards has created a delightfully quirky character in Copper Black, a writer for The Las Vegas Light and unexpected discoverer of a murder scene. She’s curious but often clueless (which isn’t a good thing for someone who ends up investigating a murder). She’s dogged in her determination to learn the truth but often has delayed interpretations of seemingly insignificant observations. Although she’s basically law-abiding, she dances along the edges of legality from time to time. In short, like the Las Vegas commercial, she has “just the right amount of wrong.”

What other book might you compare Getting off on Frank Sinatra to and why?

Like Stephanie Plum and Kinsey Millhone, the heroines of the Evanovitch and Grafton novels, Copper is smart, likeable and humorously quick-witted. She is surrounded by a diverse group of characters in her personal and professional life who define her by allowing her to expose her strengths and flaws.

Which scene was your favorite?

A chase scene through the streets of Las Vegas takes the listener on an adrenalin-fueled tour from residential areas, through desert landscapes to the heart of the city's iconic Strip.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Copper's observations and her reactions to the situations in which she finds herself with the other characters are a constant source of chuckles.

Any additional comments?

The talented narrator is able to evoke the earnestness, energy, intelligence and humor of the 20-something Copper with a fitting cadence and intonation. Edwards not only delivers a delightfully entertaining mystery, she introduces listeners to a view Las Vegas most tourists don't get to experience.
