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.

Any additional comments?

“Getting Off on Frank Sinatra” is a fun rollercoaster ride of a read with many surprising twists and turns. Just when you think the mystery is solved, you find out there is a whole lot more to the story. Besides keeping me on the edge of my seat, it is also very funny. I started out laughing out loud at the first paragraph:

My life in Las Vegas improved dramatically when I started getting off on Frank Sinatra…”I’d like to get off on Dean Martin too, but I just can’t. And in case you’re interested, Mel Torme is too short, Hugh Hefner is a dead end, and I can never remember if Jerry Lewis goes both ways.”

As a Las Vegas resident myself, it was entertaining to hear the veiled references to local landmarks and history. I found aspiring reporter Copper Black to be relatable as she weaves through familiar Las Vegas settings like “The V” where you can sample wine “do it yourself” style and “Cal’s Town on Boulder Highway”. Of course there has to be an old house with a mobster back story too! You can see Megan Edwards’ in-depth expertise about Las Vegas woven throughout the book.

I enjoyed the reading by Em Eldrige as well. She did a great job of capturing Copper Black’s emotions and voice.

I would wholeheartedly recommend this book for anyone who enjoys comedy, mystery or stories about Las Vegas!
