Overview
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. An Indian 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 and a suspicious homicide detective make Megan Edwards' rousing debut Getting Off on Frank Sinatra a nonstop roller coaster of a read.

Edwards (Roads from the Ashes) makes an assured fiction debut. This amusing mystery stars aspiring journalist Copper Black, a contributor to a Las Vegas, Nev., newspaper, who must navigate a multitude of personal and professional hurdles. Copper juggles romantic entanglements with almost-divorced David Nussbaum and former boyfriend Daniel Garside; deals with awkward visits from her mother and her boyfriend, as well as from her father and his boyfriend; helps her priest brother, Michael, deal with protesters who believe his new homeless-services-center site was an Indian burial ground; and house-sits for architect Curtis Weaver at the old Nash house, which has a 50-year-old tortoise and a history of past murders. But her real problems begin when she accidentally discovers the body of Curtiss wife, Marilyn, founder of Anna Roberts Parks Academy, the most prestigious school in Las Vegas. While Det. Michael Booth investigates and makes her feel like a suspect, Copper learns enough secrets to make deadly enemies before emerging bruised, battered, victorious, and primed for new comic adventures. (Mar.)
