SYNOPSIS

NO SUCH THING AS A SECRET:

Meet Brandy Alexander, a young woman from South Philadelphia with a big mouth, an even bigger heart and a little problem with impulse control. It’s not her fault trouble seems to follow her around. Okay, it is her fault, but why quibble over details?

When Brandy (a puff piece reporter for a local Los Angeles TV news station) returns to her hometown after a four year absence, she is thrilled to be reunited with friends and family. But her joy is short-lived when her best friend, John, becomes the victim of a tragic accident. Brandy is alone in thinking that the death is “no accident” and as she sets out to prove her theory, she stumbles upon a political scandal of major proportions. Things begin to heat up, when it appears that her former boyfriend, police Detective Robert Anthony DiCarlo, is involved in sabotaging the investigation. The one thing Brandy knows for sure is that people keep turning up dead and if she doesn’t get some answers fast, she could end up on the short list.

As Brandy searches out the truth, she gains some unexpected allies including sexy, dangerous, street-savvy Nicholas Santiago and the now-married Bobby, who still holds a torch for his former girlfriend.

With humor, guts and determination, Brandy tackles each challenge – be it dodging a bullet or resisting that box of Tastykakes in the cupboard. Murder, mayhem and romance abound in Shelly Fredman’s novel, proving there really is No Such Thing as a Secret.

REVIEWS:

“Fredman is a hilarious writer! She has such a warm style of writing that the reader can’t help but be pulled in…Brandy Alexander takes the reader on a ride not soon to be forgotten…No Such Thing as a Secret is a titillating mystery full of fun and mayhem. There is a rich under-texture that separates the story from other authors and thus makes it a standout” ~Midwest Book Review

“Brandy is a fun, feisty narrator with a big heart…and the plot is brisk and lively” ~ChickLitBooks.Com

“Brandy Alexander could hold her own as the third member of an urban Northeast detecting triangle, anchored by Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum and Sarah Stromeyer’s Bubbles Yablonski…Fans of those sleuths will find a new set of books to read with this series.” ~Rambles.NET

AUTHOR BIO

I firmly believe what I once read on a bumper sticker -“Reality is for people who lack imagination.”

A former Philadelphian, I now reside in Santa Monica, California where I split my “real life” between writing, teaching elementary school, consuming mass quantities of chocolate and enjoying the many characters that manifest themselves in my head (in the non-clinical sense).
