Diva Las Vegas
Raven McShane Mysteries book #1
Raven McShane has made thousands of little mistakes and one big one—she became an exotic dancer while in college. While she originally began dancing to pay for her niece’s medical bills, fast-forward 15 years, and now she finds herself in her thirties with no family, no man, and no long-term career prospects. Needing to find a way out of the nightly grind, she dusts off an old dream of hers—opening up a private detective agency. Despite being laughed at, doubted, and outright mocked, Raven is determined. And when an old friend places trust in Raven’s common sense and hires her to get to the bottom of one of Las Vegas’ most storied murder cases, she's definitely up for the challenge. Raven dodges casino thugs, old-money families, and long-buried secrets... and if she can stay one step ahead of the killer, she just may prove that this beauty has brains, too!
