Honky Tonk Kat
Dakota Jones, the superstar country singer, was a childhood friend of Kat Colorado's. Dakota has been receiving strange threats. She calls on Kat for protection. Kat joins her in Nashville to be a bodyguard and see if she can discover the source of the threats. She wants to put a stop to them.
The threats step up instead, and now become dangerous to Dakota's audience and people around her as well as personally. The only person Kat knows hates Dakota is her ex-husband. But she is a superstar and public property. A crazed fan could be stalking her. Perhaps one of her current entourage has a gripe. They are the group who has the easiest access to Dakota. Then another country singer who looks like Dakota is murdered. That singer had been where Dakota was supposed to be before a schedule change. Now Kat has a murder to solve if she wants to protect her friend.
The Kat Colorado novels tend to be darker, more matter of fact. This one, though, verges into cozy at times because of the friendship between the two women. It keeps the reader guessing. I don't like the way things fall together in the end because of some last minute mechinations on Kijewski's part, but can still recommend this novel. Kijewski does a good job with her red herrings while trying not to stray too far from the mystery's path.
